Celine Dion's eighth English-language album, A New Day Has Come, marks the dawning of a new musical chapter for the 33-year-old chanteuse, who returns after a two-year industry sabbatical with a new baby and a new attitude. This first all-new collection since 1997 adds fresh colors to Dion's musical canvas, as she explores a broader, more adventurous range of pop music. Over the course of the album's generous 16 tracks, Dion dishes out her first all-out dance anthem, "Sorry for Love," hitworthy uptempo gems like "I'm Alive" and "When the Wrong One Loves You Right," the rock-leaning "Ten Days," and a Spanish track, "Aun Existe Amor." She doesn't disappoint with ballads, either, via the rafter-shaking "I Surrender" and "The Greatest Reward." And two standards—the diamond-dipped "Nature Boy" and gospel "At Last"—serve her grown-up fans. The common thread here is immeasurable ease and confidence, adding up to Dion's most versatile and thus gratifying recording yet.—CT
