Consumer Guide Reviews:

Celine Dion [Epic, 1992]
Montreal chanteuse goes gold Stateside, and I'm thinking, hey, North American Eurodisco for Anglophones, could be OK. Not hardly. Though the two Ric Wake productions lilt sweetly enough, she's a creature of the power ballad, with tympani all over her drum pads and Diane Warren hand-me-downs for hooks. Worst album of the year--that I can remember. D+
