All the Way… A Decade of Song is the first English-language greatest hits album by Canadian recording artist Celine Dion. Released by Sony Music Entertainment on November 12, 1999, it features nine previously released and seven new recordings. Dion worked on new songs mainly with David Foster, other producers include: Max Martin, Kristian Lundin, Robert John "Mutt" Lange, James Horner and Matt Serletic.

All the Way... A Decade of Song garnered positive reviews from music critics. They praised the first uptempo single "That's the Way It Is" and a ballad "If Walls Could Talk." Some criticism was directed towards including a small number of hits and many new recordings. Despite that, the album became a commercial success throughout the world and peaked at number one in every major music market around the globe. All the Way... A Decade of Song has sold over 8,000,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It has also sold over five million copies in Europe and shipped two million copies in Japan and one million in Canada. During the first two years of its release, the album had sold over seventeen million copies worldwide.

The lead single, "That's the Way It Is" was well received by critics and became a commercial success around the world. The following singles were released in selected countries only and without any promotion from Dion, who was on her two-years break from the music industry, they performed moderately on the charts.

Background[edit]

After ten years of standing in the spotlight, Celine Dion decided go on vacation. "I'm looking forward to having no schedule, no pressure, to not caring about whether it's raining or not, just visiting with family and friends, cooking at home, trying to seriously have a child. I want no pressure for a while," she said.[1] But before Dion embarked on her two-year respite from the music industry beginning January 1, 2000, she prepared All the Way... A Decade of Song to cap a ten-year period in which she has sold over 100 million records worldwide.[2] In the '90s, Dion has transformed herself from a regional Canadian success into one of the world's most successful pop artists. In that time, she's released seven English-language albums, from 1990's Unison to All the Way... A Decade of Song, and six newly recorded French albums, picking up numerous awards, including five Grammys.[1][2]

The process of putting together All the Way… A Decade of Song was laborious for all involved, from balancing the number of hits and new songs to ensuring that each of the latest tracks showed a new side of Dion. "We had hourly conversations, back and forth, about what the combination should be," said John Doelp, the album's co-executive producer. "We wanted to make sure we had some new sounds and that we were able to go to new places." Co-executive producer Vito Luprano added: "The first idea was to record three new songs, then Dion said, 'Let's go for five,' her lucky number. But we had so many great songs coming in that we ended up recording nine. Out of that, we decided to go with seven."[1]

All the Way... A Decade of Song contains nine greatest hits (ten on the Japanese version) with seven new songs in one single-disc package.[3] Collaborators include Max Martin; Robert John "Mutt" Lange; James Horner and Will Jennings, who wrote "My Heart Will Go On"; French songwriter/producer Luc Plamondon; Diane Warren; and David Foster. The Jennings/Horner track "Then You Look at Me was also placed in December 1999 on the film soundtrack Bicentennial Man, starring Robin Williams; and Plamondon's "Live (for the One I Love)", which has been translated from its original French version "Vivre," appeared in February 2000 on the French stage-show album Notre-Dame de Paris.[1]

The first single, "That's the Way It Is" is an optimistic uptempo song, co-written and co-produced by Max Martin, best known for his work with young pop artists.[3] Other highlights on All the Way... A Decade of Song include a remake of Roberta Flack's "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face", which Dion has performed acoustically in her Let's Talk About Love World Tour; the Robert John "Mutt" Lange ballad "If Walls Could Talk", with Shania Twain on background vocals; the power ballad "I Want You to Need Me" from Diane Warren; another, orchestrated power ballad "Then You Look at Me;" and a song Dion and René Angélil got married to, "All the Way", here in a virtual duet with Frank Sinatra.[1][2]

Sony Music Entertainment released eight different versions of her greatest hits, tailored to Dion's individual successes in North America, Europe, France, Australia/New Zealand, Asia, Japan, Latin America and Brazil.[1]

DVD[edit]

In 2001, Sony Music Entertainment released All the Way... A Decade of Song & Video on DVD.[4] It includes music videos for "If Walls Could Talk" and "Then You Look at Me", which weren't released as singles. It also contains two videos from the 1999 CBS television special, "All the Way" and "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face", and music videos for All the Way... A Decade of Song singles: "That's the Way It Is", "Live (for the One I Love)" and "I Want You to Need Me." The DVD also includes previous hits, some of them in live versions from the Live in Memphis concert.[4] In late 2003, Sony Music Entertainment released a combo of All the Way... A Decade of Song CD and All the Way... A Decade of Song & Video DVD in Europe and Australia.[5]

The television special aired on November 22, 1999 and was the second-most-watched program in its time slot, with an 8.3 rating and a 14 share.[6] Dion also performed "That's the Way It Is" in various television and award shows in late 1999, before taking a two-year break from the music industry.[3] On December 31, 1999, she performed her last concert at Montral's Molson Center, with guest Bryan Adams and a host of French-Canadian singers.[1][7]

All the Way... A Decade of Song garnered generally positive reviews from music critics. Michael Paoletta from Billboard gave it a very positive review, calling the album a reminder of why the decade has been Dion's signature era – and why the future looks bright for her. According to him, regarding seven new songs, All the Way... A Decade of Song is Dion's most focused album yet, drawing on a team of collaborators that understands this artists's strengths. Among the highlights Paoletta mentioned: the first single "That's the Way It Is", a welcone uptempo number; "I Want You to Need Me", a consummate love song ripe for a second single; "If Walls Could Talk;" "Then You Look at Me", a characteristically "roof-raising, fan-stoking" Dion anthem; her "beyond-the-pale" duet with Frank Sinatra on "All the Way"; and "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face", a remake that "affirms Dion's ability to lay low and still scintillate."[12]

Chuck Taylor from Billboard also praised "That's the Way It Is." He wrote that Dion at last "ups the tempo with the irresistible" first single. According to Taylor, this new track, a joyful ode to holding the faith but allowing love to take its course when it's ready, matches Dion with a new team of collaborators, consistent hitmakers: Max Martin, Kristian Lundin and Andreas Carlsson. "Replete with a festive mandolin and a midtempo beat to bring new heights to her as-ever splendid vocal," this song is "destined to enrapture" top forty and AC the first time through, at last stripping away mainstream radio's gripe that Dion is "too adult." He said that, youthful and yet elegant, and glowing brightly with warmth, the song also represents a bold step forward for Martin, who is best known for his work with chart-topping youth acts. All in all, "That's the Way It Is" is "one of the most compelling radio releases yet" from "one of the core voices of the decade."[13]

Chuck Taylor also reviewed "I Want You to Need Me" and wrote that linking Dion and Diane Warren has always been about "as fine a fit as a trusty pair of Thom McAn's." Between Warren's "heart-drenched" words and dramatic melody writing and Dion's "potent vocals straight from soulside, divadom has never sounded so mighty." According to him, for fans of Dion's "high-caliber" power ballads, this is truly among the best ever and a highlight on All the Way... A Decade of Song. Longing for romantic attention, Dion sings, "I want you to need me, like the air you breathe/I want you to feel me, in everything/I want you to see me, in your every dream/The way that I taste you, feel you, breathe you, need you." Taylor stated that Warren's trusty melody is wholly natural and free-flowing, while production from the usually rock-oriented Matt Serletic is "sheer perfection." It all peaks from the glorious midsection through to the end, where Dion delivers exactly what we've come to expect: a crescendo as "spine-tingling" as those first few times we heard "My Heart Will Go On."[14]

Although Stephen Thomas Erlewine of Allmusic gave the album four out of five stars, he criticized it for including seven new songs and just nine hits. According to him, if it had been a straight hits collection, with "That's the Way It Is" and "If Walls Could Talk" added to the end, it would have been fine, but padding it with nearly a full album worth of new material hurts it. He also noticed that Dion's first American hit, "Where Does My Heart Beat Now", isn't here, nor is her duet with Barbra Streisand, "Tell Him." Erlewine stated that the best of the hits, like the Meat Loaf-ian epic "It's All Coming Back to Me Now" and "My Heart Will Go On," are certainly among the best adult contemporary songs of the decade. In comparison to the new material, he felt that the danceable "That's the Way It Is" and the "pretty" ballad "If Walls Could Talk," work, but he did not like "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" and "All the Way." According to him, the remaining three new songs "aren't bad," but they're not particularly memorable, especially compared to the hits.[11]
