5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, Her Best Effort
Celine Dion has produced fine recordings since her debut in 1990 with "Unison". Recently, her new albums "A New Day Has Come" and "One Heart" haven't matched her previous works, by far. And they don't come anywhere near this album.
Released in 1997, this album was a little underestimated until the release of the number one hit "My...

3.0 out of 5 stars Let's Talk About Celine
Celine's follow up to the successful 1996 album FALLING INTO YOU, is a good mix of songs with some guest artists here and there, making of a good album. LETS TALK ABOUT LOVE features some great material, and a few that aren't so good, but it's all good in the end. "Immortality" features the Bee Gees, "I Hate You Then I Love You" features Luciano...

Ce commentaire est de: Lets Talk About Love (Audio CD)
I have always liked Celine Dion...ever since her American debut in 90 with the hit "Love Can Move Mountains." This is Definatly one of her best albums (Along with "Falling into You" which is her other best) and shouldn't be missed on any fan. As with me if you enjoyed the smash hit "My Heart Will Go On (Love Theme from Titanic)" then you'll like the rest of the songs, as they fit in well together...ranging from mid upbeat (Which she is Best at), to ballads. I also enjoy the single "To Love You More." This one is an extended version which shows off a talented violinist (Whomever he/she may be)! This song was also the theme of the movie "The Quest For Camelot." My Absolute fav on this album occurs at the very very end of the Album which is the Album's title song "Let's Talk About Love." - It's PHENOMINAL! You really have to hear it to believe it. This is one of the Best albums and If you enjoyed the singles releaed check this one out!

It's hard to find the right words to describe Celine Dion's Let's Talk About Love. If you like Celine and haven't gotten this album you should get it. Its content resembles, in musical style, those from FALLING INTO YOU. Although sometimes it may be hard to get into some of the content, this occurs only rarely at the expense of the tremendous range it has on offer. And while the album doesn't quite have the sweet setting that categorized some of her earlier releases, nobody should dismiss it. Celine mixes symphonic rock with R&B with even funky reggae arrangements! (Treat Her Like a Lady is worth dancing to on Friday nights.) But don't let this versatile range make you think there are more like ten women on this CD. Yes, I love My Heart Will Go On. The combination of Celine's powerful voice, Irish tin whistles, and a symphonic rock orchestra in a heartfelt arrangement is amazing. No wonder the song (and the TITANIC movie) became so popular. To Love You More is another noteworthy gem...for this release, that is. Although it did appear on Japan's import of FIY back in '96, its REAL origin can be traced to the Japanese 16-track reissue of THE COLOUR OF MY LOVE. So it's really more TCOML property than FIY but to be a big hit in Japan and in the US Celine is honored to have that song for this pressing. In other matters, pretty much the whole CD is notable and interesting enough to add to anyone's Celine collection. After all, 70 million Celine lovers can't be wrong.

Celine Dion's 1997 release LETS TALK ABOUT LOVE embraces you in a message of love. The album contains soft ballads, rock, movie themes, duets, and opera. The one song that hits me the most and has become my best favorite from the album is Track 14-TO LOVE YOU MORE. A passionate ballad with a very elegant violin opening, the song sorts of like a response to BECAUSE YOU LOVED ME in the previous release.
The producers of this album (Vito Luprano and John Doelp) have saved the best for last in the album. Track 15-LET'S TALK ABOUT LOVE is sort of like the kind of song you'll hear in Olympics closing, like AMIGOS POR SIMPRE (Barcelona Games 1992). Celine is joined by a children choir in this heart-warming piece. Track 13-I HATE YOU THEN I LOVE YOU (duet with Luciano Pavarotti) will share the merit with LET'S TALK ABOUT LOVE as my second favorite from the album. It's a beautiful opera song. As Celine has noted, Luciano is the greatest tenor in the world and she had been secretly hoping to sing a love song with him.
Speaking of popularity, everyone will agree that Track 12-MY HEAR WILL GO ON (theme from Titanic) is the most popular piece in this album. James Horner had do an incredible job on the music score for the film. The music is stunning, breathtaking, and heart-pounding. Cameron (Titanic director) originally did not want to have a vocal theme but instrmentals. After listening to Celine's demo of MY HEART WILL GO ON, Cameron adopted the song as the movie theme. The movie version (as recorded on the Titanic soundtrack) is slightly different. The arrangement is better in this version recorded in Celine's album. The very last four songs, Tracks 12, 13, 14, and 15 are my personal picks and have made the album worth to buy. The album, however, has some other jewels.
Track 07-WHERE IS THE LOVE and Track 08-WHEN I NEED YOU go hand in hand as a pair of beautiful love soft ballads. Track 08-WHEN I NEED YOU Celine sings with a very soft voice. The song would make a nice Kareoke choice. Track 06-TELL HIM (duet with Barbara Streisand) is a very beautiful ballad again. What can I say about two divas coming together and perform a timeless classic? The twin opening cuts Track 01-THE REASON and Track 02-IMMORTALITY have some good tunes but are nothing compared to Track 14-TO LOVE YOU MORE and Track 15-LET'S TALK ABOUT LOVE. Track 03-TREAT HER LIKE A BABY is a nice twist from the rest of the album-it is a cute and fun song. I only own two Celine Dion's CDs: FALLING INTO YOU and the current one being reviewed. But I can honestly say that I love both albums. They consistently make their presence back to my CD player. Let the music pulsate in your mind...

Celine's follow up to the successful 1996 album FALLING INTO YOU, is a good mix of songs with some guest artists here and there, making of a good album. LETS TALK ABOUT LOVE features some great material, and a few that aren't so good, but it's all good in the end. "Immortality" features the Bee Gees, "I Hate You Then I Love You" features Luciano Pavoratti, "Tell Him" features fellow diva Barbra Streisand, and a few more extra artists on some songs. First I'll list the songs I don't care for. Her cover of "When I Need You", which is already a bad song to begin with, doesn't add anything different to make it a good song. "I Hate You Then I Love You", a silly song, very annoying after a while, but I could see how some might like this one. "Just A Little Bit of Love", I honestly don't really care for Celine's dance tracks, so this one is out the door as well for me. "Why Oh Why" is a nice song, but in the end it doesn't leave me truly impressed or wanting to hear it again.
Now the good songs. "Love Is On The Way" is an excellent song, very powerful and vocally she is sounding very good on this one. "Tell Him" with Barbra Streisand, is fantastic, I was blown away when I first heard it. "Us" and "Where Is The Love" are nice ballads. "The Reason", "Lets Talk About Love", and "My Heart Will Go On" are other great ballads, where Celine sounds top form vocally.
Overall LETS TALK ABOUT LOVE is a good cd, but in light its predessor FALLING INTO YOU, it doesn't add up to its quality in terms of song selection, however there are some great songs on here, its just hit and miss at times.

2.0 out of 5 stars Less than stellar Celine, Aug. 16 2001

Ce commentaire est de: Lets Talk About Love (Audio CD)
After the Grammy-winning success of her previous set FALLING INTO YOU, Celine Dion was under the typical pressure one gets when following up a massively huge album. Too bad she didn't take a little longer to seek out better material, because LET'S TALK ABOUT LOVE not only fails to live up to the stunning promise of FALLING INTO YOU, but stands as her worst album in an already uneven catalog of work. First off, she pads the album with big-name guest stars, and only the Bee Gees come off with any dignity in tact. The duet with idol Barbra Streisand on 'Tell Him'comes across more like a who-can-outsing-who marathon rather than a great record, and the Pavarotti duet is just idiotic--the two artists are too different vocally to ever gel into a melodically pleasing duet track. She also attempts a channeling of Toni Braxton on 'Why Oh Why', and the results are mediocre--sorry, but nuance isn't exactly a staple of Dion's vocal work. Other snoozers include both Corey Hart-produced tracks('Miles To Go' and Where's The Love'), as well as the awful remake of an already bad song, 'When I Need You'. On the very small plus side, the Bee Gees track 'Immortality' is very pretty, and she steps up the tempo to great effect on the reggae-styled 'Treat Her Like A Lady' and the club thumper 'Just A Little Bit Of Love'. She also provides career high vocal work on both 'To Love You More' and the ubiquitous TITANIC hit 'My Heart Will Go On'. Unfortunately, these few bright spots can't make up for what on the whole is a totally mediocre display of Dion's considerable vocal talents.

This last entire english new material album from Celine Dion shows a more mature side of her talent,and proves that the succes of "Falling Into You" was not a passer-by one but instead the entrance to the Diva-world. "Let's Talk About Love" is by far the best album modern pop has ever produced during the past 20 years to say the least. There are simply too much stars involved in the recording of this album. There are practically no mistakes and there is a great coherence and cohesion between all of the tracks. No way this could ever be boring simply because it has a great diversity, starting with the common excellent well produced diva-pop and ending with a hip-hop cover and one or two extremely danceable songs. The album begins with "The Reason", a top vocal track which features the help of role model Carole King. On the following track The Bee Gees appear both as songwriters and as fellow singers turning "Immortality" into and very emotional and romantic song. On her hip-hop effort, Celine is being hepled by jamaican Diana King and Brownstone treesome. In fact, this one is a cover of Diana's 1995 "Treat her like a lady". "Tell Him" is the star duet on this album,Ms Dion teenage years' inspiration Barbra Streisand, having an important role in the succes of the song. It is overproduces, nevertheless tiresome. Still it is simple and clear, making it one of the most enjoyable musical experiences ever. There's also another beautiful cover on the album, "When I Need You", which goes on great with Celine's voice. The last duet is with classical singer Luciano Pavarotti turning on a more serious side of pop music, a more classical one. On top of that the famous producer George Martin (Beatles) helps on "The Reason", Walter Afanasieff and David Foster on "Tell Him" and several other tracks plus production work from music giants such as Rick Wake (previously worked on "The Colour..."), Corey Hart, Jim Steinman, Brian Adams, Jean-Jaques Goldman etc. There is also a spanish track on some non US editions "Amar Haciendo el Amor" on which Celine shows she has no problems with her fifth singing language. This is the work of Emilio Estefan Jr. But what surely made this album so important is the Titanic theme which needs no description. Next to those songs there are some great romantic tracks such as "Where Is The Love" and the title track. Inspite of the cliche phrase this really is a masterpiece album which fits in any respectable CD collection. In fact you cannot say you know music unless you've tasted this one aswell. All i have to say now is "Enjoy it!" because i know you will.
