There's a reason Celine Dion's most famous hit comes from the most momentous film epic of our time. Grand statements and performances are what she does best. More than Whitney, Bette, Patti or any other modern vocalist, the northern queen of balladic boom invests her material with so much scope, reach, and power that every song becomes an incredible emotional outpouring. And when she turns her glow on us, the effect can be mesmerizing. "Don't give up on your faith/Love comes to those who believe it/And that's the way it is," she sings on "That's the Way It Is," the radiant Max Martin-produced first single from ALL THE WAY. Translation: I'm here to lift up you where you belong. In that vein, ALL THE WAY is a Celine dream. You get nine massive hits, such as "The Power of Love," "Because You Loved Me (Theme from Up Close and Personal)," "I'm Your Angel," and the Grammy- and Academy Award-winning "My Heart Will Go On (Love Theme from Titanic)," plus seven brand new songs -- including an eerily powerful duet with the late Frank Sinatra, a revelatory version of "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face," and collaborations with Dianne Warren, Shania Twain producer John "Mutt" Lange, and the aforementioned Martin. Of course, each of these formidable figures knows that his or her duty is to stand back and let Dion do her thing, and so many of the productions are simply sonic white walls on which the diva extraordinaire paints her vision with magnificent gestures. And that's all she needs. The world of music rarely produces art this sweeping, and Dion's many fans will welcome this long, lush parade of hits and new performances with joy and enrapt awe. --Peter Rutter

I haven't gotten this CD yet, but I will have it soon. I have listened to it and it's great! I especially like her new song, That's the way it is.

Ten years ago who would have known that this beautiful voice would still be making us smile and cry and feel good all over. Celine has consitently made good career choices. I'll bet more of us wish we had the insight into gold that Celine seems to have. From Beauty and the Beast to Titanic and beyond she continues to warm our hearts with her joyous melodies. I recommend her greatest hits CD in particular because it highlights her best and offers us 7 new titles making this choice very enticing. We'll miss you my dear but everyone needs to take a break now and again.

Celine Dion again does what she does best Sing her Booty off. Her new title ranks as one of her best.The songs are crisp and clear. Not full of weak lyrics or embroidey to get lost in. Like so many other pop diva's use. She sings the songs we adults wnat to hear and the way we want to near them sung. She is the pavarotti or greatest in her field of singing. May she continue to pull out all the stops , keep hitting the high c's d's e's and so forth.

Celine Dion is one of the world's greatest female singers. She is so good at ballads and this collection shows it. Because You Loved Me, My Heart Will Go On, To Love You More, It's All Coming Back to Me Now and others are fabulous showcases and performances. But she breaks out of it for a minute for the very funky Love Can Move Mountains, one of my favorites of her danceable, fun numbers. I'm Your Angel with R. Kelly is yet another highlight. The newer songs are sharp, especially If Walls Could Talk, Live, I Want You to Need Me and others. One of the standouts of the 1999 songs is the also funky That's the Way It Is, where that Max Martin sound so great on Backstreet Boys' songs fits so perfect for her here. It's so consistent for 72 minutes with these pop songs and a true testament of the first phase of Celine's music career. Long before her successful 700+ shows at Las Vegas' Caesar's Palace from 2003-2008. If you missed out on her in recent times, this collection of her best '90s hits is a good start for you!

When the angels in Heaven sing, it has to sound just like this.

Celine is nothing less than a great singer. This compilation of most of her best work proves it beyond doubt. One merely has to measure her against the other "superstars" with whom she is compared: the fading Whitney and egomaniac Barbra come to mind.There are others but none are in Celine's class. One has to turn to earlier female singers to find any anyone who deserves mention with Celine. Most notably, in my opinion, is Patsy Cline who, while a "country singer," had crossover hits and undoubtedly would have had many more, and who was, like Celine, a truly great singer.My only reservation re Celine is that many of her songs allude to her love affair and marriage with her manager. While the emotions in them I'm sure are genuine, and can apply to others, her personalization of these love songs has always been, to me, obtrusive. That does not detract much from the superlative and enjoyable interpretations she gives to these songs.

I love every one of the Celine's Greatest hits, and the new songs, particularly ''Live'', ''all the way'', and ''the first time ever I saw your face'' are so brilliant! I felt touched by this album, and you probably will, too. That is if you are an adult contemporary fan or romantic teen girl. It's not quite ''guy music'' but I do love it! My only gripe is that she only included an edit of ''It's all coming back to me now'', my all-time fave. But I have ''Falling into you'' so I guess it's okay!

It is hard to describe Celine Dion. Her voice is incredibly powerful and her emotions behind her voice. Gosh! it is like humm, may need help here..:-) I would say Celine is like Pavoratti and Withney Huston combine..:-) She is a phenomenon and I wish her all the best in her future.

I love her voice so much she rocks? Hey do you guys know where to find her cd where she sings God Bless America.

Celine Dion is just great... I lovvvveeee so many of her songs, maybe because I love her voice and the lyrics too. My favorite song is My Heart Will Go On...I loved it in Titanic and I love it when I'm sad... or just when I'm singing along w/ it in my car. Anyway, every thing Celine Dion sings is beautiful.
Guest More than 1 year ago
This recent release of Celine Dion's...All the Way: A Decade of Song...brings a lot of emotions to those who have become lovers...and who are old time lovers...The song I liked the most is; I Want You to Need Me. It has brought the emotional detail of one who is truely in love with someone else who may or may not feel the same.... Also, Celine has continued the quality of uniqueness throughout this CD...Thank you Celine for choosing wonderful writers and keeping the world rich with music for those who are in love and are in search of love.

What amazing album I Love this one On this album are all Celine´s best songs as Beauty and The Beast,Because You Loved Me,My Heart Will Go On from Titanic,It´s All Coming Back To Me Now,The Power Of Love,Think Twice,To Love You More, and some new songs as Then You Look At Me from Bicentennialman. and That´s The Way It Is. Celine rocks she has the greatest voice of all time in history i always get goosebumbs when she sings on the high notes she is amazing and she is the new generation of Barbra Streisand i think they sounds exacly the same so does Tina Arena and Lara Fabian but they haven,t got the chance jet to proof their talents as Celine Dion hopefully they will someday.Celine´s producers on this wonderful collection of her hits and the 7 new songs are as Walter Afanasieff(Mariah Carey,Michael Bolton,Kenny G, Barbra Streisand,Lara Fabian,Tina Arena among others)David Foster(Whitney Houston,Chigago,Toni Braxton,Mariah Carey among others)Jim Steinman(Meatloaf,Tina Arena among others) Max Martin&Kristian Lundin(Britney Spears,N-Sync,Backstreet Boys)Robert Mutt Lange(Shania Twain,Michael Bolton & others)And More. Celine Dion rules she is the best of all female artist today no other female artist has conquered the world as her except for miss Streisand.
