Not yet rated | write a review
Although The Colour of My Love starts softly with the stirring version of "The Power of Love," it quickly picks up speed. So when Celine Dion gets to "Misled," an upbeat R'n'B tune, your toes will be tapping as soon as it starts. The Canadian diva changes speeds again on the disillusioned "Think Twice" and never misses a beat. As usual, she demonstrates her absolute control over her lovely soprano voice while allowing the songs to speak for themselves. The tender, dramatic or intense emotions shine through as she channels the energy of the notes.

"The Power Of Love" was nominated for Best Pop Vocal Performance, Female, in the 37th Annual Grammy Awards. Celine Dion, the Canadian Streisand of the '90s, spirals her spectacular voice through a fourteen-song set of pop ballads, MOR rockers, and soul-stirrers. In "Misled" and "Lovin' Proof" she is more gritty and expressive than most R&B divas. She can also turn soothingly romantic, as in the restrained title track, and in the #1 duet "When I Fall In Love" (from the SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE soundtrack). The chart-topping "The Power Of Love" and "Only One Road" are two cuts of many which squarely place Celine on equal footing with Whitney Houston as one of music's power balladeers. "Refuse To Dance" is a quirky anti-dance song, almost at home on the modern rock charts with its rebellious lyric, a raging violin solo, and Dion's elastic soprano. The disc is filled with radio-friendly songs, executed by a skillful singer whose enthusiasm is effectively controlled. Her vocals are not over-wrought, although she certainly has the chops to sing any other vocalist under the table. Dion is in command of her material, sometimes transcending the song itself with the sheer power of her voice.
