Celione Dion - she of the powerful pipes and killer romantic ballads - returned in full force on this much-anticipated sophomore disc. The woman who previously hit it huge in the U.S. with her 1991 duet with Peabo Bryson on the soundtrack of the Walt Disney movie BEAUTY AND THE BEAST (included here) clearly knew how to belt out a song, and then some. The album is full of lovely pop ballads (three from the pen Diane Warrer, the ubiquitous queen of the genre), big production flourishes, soaring chord changes, and stadium-ready guitar parts, highlights include the hit singles 'Love Can Move Mountains', 'Water From The Moon', 'If You Asked Me To' and 'Did You Give Enough Love'."
