This album promised great things but to be honest some of the tracks are just boring. There are some great tracks on the album such as a New day which inspired me to buy the album and also 10 days which is quite upbeat and a great celine Track. The second track on the album I think is what justifies me forking out £12.99 for it, it is a beautiful track called Right in Front of You and will have anybody singing along but the rest are just not the usual great tracks we expect from Celine Dion.
This album will appeal to all die hard celine fans like myself but to be brutally honest will not make new fans rush to buy it. It just isn't what I would expect from the greatest female singer ever.
The album can cost between £10.99 and £12.99 basic price.
Let me know if you add to this at any time. Fionaxx

Welcome to ciao. There needs to be a bit more info to get better ratings, like comparisons, song list and other info to make the consumer want to buy. Also if you write in caps it makes it really hard to read. HOpe you don't et discouraged by this but if you add more details I'll re rate. Hope you enjoy ciao. Chrissy.
Personnel includes: Celine Dion (vocals); Dorian Cheah (guitar, violin); Michael Thompson, Paul Jackson Jr (guitar); Felipe Elgueta, Simon Franglen, Guy Roche (programming); Chantal Kreviazuk, Richard Page, Sam Watters, Mary Griffin, Sue Ann Carwell, Yvonne Williams, Joey Diggs, John Stoddast (background vocals). Producers include: Ric Wake, Gerald De Palmas, Robert "Mutt" Lange, Simon Franglen, Anders Bagge. This album represents Celine Dion's return to recording after a lengthy hiatus (nobody ever believed that "retirement" guff) taken to spend time with her family. As such, the aptly titled A NEW DAY HAS COME finds everybody's favorite French Canadian diva audibly reveling in her return to the vocation for which she was born. The title track finds Dion's elegant voice resplendent amid a pool of twinkling synthesizers, full of energy and joy. "Right in Front of You" opens with some attention-grabbing violin-sawing before giving way to a Euro-synth sound that falls halfway between power ballad and dance tune a la Cher. There's no question about the balladic nature of "Have You Ever Been in Love," it's the kind of heart-on-sleeve tune Dion's big, soaring voice was made for. Elsewhere, Dion stretches out a bit, touching on R&B with "Rain, Tax (It's Inevitable)" and a poignant version of Eden Ahbez's standard "Nature Boy," but that familiar vocal stamina is consistent throughout A NEW DAY HAS COME.
Q - 3 out of 5 stars - "...There's no vocal histrionics--she's good enough not to need to grandstand--but she handles the airy title track, the power ballads...plus even the Euro disco...with grace and class..."
