    With unprecedented access and insight into Dion's world following such a life-changing few years, Courage is a triumph of spirit and resolve.

    All in, Courage marks an impressive return.

    Consider Courage to be Dion’s version of Cher’s Believe: an album that arrived at exactly the right time and proved to a new generation that she’s worth revisiting and recognizing as a diva very capable of keeping up with the times.

    Updating Dion’s sound without frightening the horses – is a tough one. At its worst, Courage ends up peddling the kind of dreary, blanched take on contemporary pop that packs Radio 2’s playlist. ... The best tracks on Courage stick close to the music that made Dion famous.

    A talented interpreter, Dion comes unstuck when she can’t overcome the source material.

    Courage is a force to be reckoned with. It seems unlikely that more than a few of its tracks will jostle their way onto Dion’s setlist, given the decades of power ballads they have to compete with. But those that do will make their mark.
  7. 50
    In short, there’s a sad irony to the title of this album; as a body of work, it derives courage through its commitment to playing it safe.

    "Courage" is an wonderful album where Céline expresses how she's feeling right now as a human being. Without any doubts this 20-track album"Courage" is an wonderful album where Céline expresses how she's feeling right now as a human being. Without any doubts this 20-track album represents Céline's most adventurous work and most eclectic song selection since her Album of The Year Grammy winner "Falling Into You". You may want to dance on "Flying On My Own", "Imperfections", "Nobody's Watching" or "Heart of Glass". You may feel like singing along on "Lovers Never Die", "Lying Down", "The Chase", "Look At Us Now" or "The Hard Way". Or simply you need the warmth of Céline's magnificent voice on "Courage", "Say Yes", "For The Lover That I Lost", "Perfect Goodbye" or the surprising "Boundaries". No matter what your mmod of the day is when listening to this masterpiece, you will find what you're searching for and you will instantly need one more listen of this superb album. One of 2019's best albums that is definitely worth a Grammy nomination. Great job Céline and thank you! Expand
