Toronto Star

Unison (1990)

1990

April 6, 1990

Mitch Potter

Dion's spectacular vocal rises above each of these canny commercial concoctions, bringing an irrepressible sense of urgency to what are otherwise safe, sure-fire productions.

Mariah Carey

1990

Toronto, ON, Canada

July 14, 1990

Mitch Potter

But barely 20 years old, there's hope yet that Carey can find her way past the emotionally barren gloss with which her co-producers – the usual suspects, including Narada Michael Walden – have surrounded her.

Celine Dion (1992)

March 28, 1992

Peter Howell

For people who like their music for soothing rather than grooving, they couldn't find a more perfect album.

Colour of My Love (1993)

1993

November 13, 1993

Peter Howell

The heavy use of keyboards, drum machines and wimp guitar causes over-production of Biblical proportions.

VH1 Divas Live

Pop

Toronto, ON, Canada

October 24, 1998

Betsy Powell

The public seems to have an enormous appetite for over-reaching, over-emoting songstresses and soulless musical backdrops.

Charmbracelet

2002

Toronto, ON, Canada

December 3, 2002

Ben Rayner

"Charmbracelet" is chest-deep in over-wrought, slickly-sweet faux-soulful goop.
