Falling into You is the fourth English-language studio album by Canadian singer Celine Dion, released on 8 March 1996, by Columbia/Epic Records. The follow-up to her commercially successful album The Colour of My Love (1993) and French-language D'eux (1995), Falling into You showed a further progression of Dion's music. Throughout the project, she collaborated with Jim Steinman, who wrote and produced "It's All Coming Back to Me Now," among others. Several songs were produced by David Foster, including Diane Warren's "Because You Loved Me." Generally, Dion worked with fourteen producers on Falling into You and a variety of songwriters and musicians.

Falling into You won many awards around the world, including Grammy Award for Album of the Year and Best Pop Album at the 39th annual ceremony, during which Dion performed live. In April 1997, she also won three World Music Awards for World's Best Selling Artist of the Year, World's Best Selling Pop Artist of the Year and World's Best Selling Canadian Artist of the Year.

Falling into You became one of the best-selling albums in history, with sales of over thirty-two million copies worldwide. It topped the charts around the world, including number one in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, France, Australia and many more. It became one of the best-selling albums of 1996 and 1997 in various countries and also one of the top-selling albums of the decade. It was certified Diamond, Multi-Platinum, Platinum and Gold around the world. The album has sold eleven million copies in the US, over two million in the UK, and over one million in Germany, France, Canada and Australia. In Europe, it has sold over nine million units.

Five singles were released from the album in Europe, four in Australia, and three in North America. The major success came with the release of "Because You Loved Me," theme from Up Close & Personal (number one in the United States, Canada and Australia), "It's All Coming Back to Me Now" (number one in Canada, Belgium and number two in the US), and Eric Carmen's "All by Myself" (top ten in various countries, inluding number four in the US).

Conception and composition[edit]

Falling into You presented Dion at the height of her popularity, and showed a further progression of her music. The album combined many elements: ornate orchestral frills and African chanting, and instruments like the violin, Spanish guitar, trombone, the cavaquinho, saxophone and supreme string arrangements, which created a new sound. The singles also encompassed a variety of musical styles. "Falling into You" (originally by Marie-Claire D'Ubaldo) and "River Deep, Mountain High" (Ike & Tina Turner's cover) made prominent use of percussion instruments. "It's All Coming Back to Me Now" (originally by Pandora's Box) and "All by Myself" (Eric Carmen's cover) kept their soft-rock atmosphere, but were combined with the classical sound of the piano.

The ballad, "Because You Loved Me" written by Diane Warren, served as the theme to the 1996 film Up Close & Personal. The album also included English adaptations of songs from D'eux: "If That's What It Takes" ("Pour que tu m'aimes encore"), "I Don't Know" ("Je sais pas") and "Fly" ("Vole"). Outside North America, Falling into You featured also a cover of Carole King's "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman." In Asia, Japanese hit "To Love You More" was added as well. Additionally, the non-US editions of the album included "Your Light" written and produced by Aldo Nova and the Spanish/Latin America editions featured "Sola Otra Vez," a Spanish-language version of "All by Myself." Dion worked on Falling into You with many producers, mainly with Jim Steinman, David Foster, Ric Wake, Jean-Jacques Goldman and Humberto Gatica.

Critical reception[edit]

Falling into You divided music critics. Billboard editor Paul Verna gave it a positive review. He called it a deep album that will solidify Dion's reputation as one of the world's true pop divas. Verna highlighted the chart-topping "Because You Loved Me" and other hit-worthy moments on the album: a Meat Loaf-style epic "It's All Coming Back to Me Now," the laid back "Falling into You," bouncy pop "Make You Happy," sultry ballad "Seduces Me" and effervescent "Declaration of Love."[1] Larry Flick, also from Billboard, spoke positively about "Because You Loved Me" and "It's All Coming Back to Me Now." He wrote that "Because You Loved Me" is "rife with grand romance, larger-than-life production, and a climax that is best described as the musical equivalent to 4th of July fireworks."[2] Flick called "It's All Coming Back to Me Now" a ballad that pits Dion against the bombastic production of Jim Steinman. According to him, "lesser talents might have been gobbled up by this melodramatic arrangements, but Dion rises to the occasion with a performance that soars above the instrumentation with deliciously theatrical flair."[3]

Positive review also came from senior editor of AllMusic, Stephen Thomas Erlewine who gave Falling into You four stars out of five. Although he noted that the album is formulaic, Erlewine appreciated it's a well-executed, stylish, and catchy formula, accentuating Dion's natural vocal charm. He praised ballads like "Because You Love Me" and mock epics like "It's All Coming Back to Me Now." He felt that Dion tackles dance-pop and love songs with grace and that effortless elegance saves the mediocre material on the album from being tedious. According to him, there are a couple of weak tracks on Falling into You but it is a remarkably well-crafted set of adult contemporary pop and Dion's best album.[4] Chuck Eddy from Entertainment Weekly gave it a B in his review. Eddy wrote: "There's something compellingly eccentric about even the mushiest ballads on Celine Dion's new set Falling into You, which features Spanish guitars, African chanting, and ornate orchestral frills. But only in her desolate cover of Eric Carmen's "All by Myself" and her brutal blues-mama dance "Declaration of Love" (which kicks like Bonnie Raitt and Wynonna only wish they could) does she truly crash through the glass ceiling of passion."[5]

Mixed or negative reviews came from Elysa Gardner of the Los Angeles Times, Stephen Holden of The New York Times and Dan Leroy of Yahoo! Music. Gardner gave the album two out of four stars and wrote that Dion "dabbles in more soulful and sophisticated textures, and at times her dilettantism pays off. But she often falls back on her characteristic platform of polite, predictable schmaltz."[6] Holden wrote that the album is "crammed with formulaic romantic bombast. The melodrama peaks with two overblown Jim Steinman productions: "It's All Coming Back to Me Now," a romantic flashback replete with thunderclaps, and "River Deep, Mountain High," an anemic remake of a classic Phil Spector production." However, he parised "Because You Love Me" (calling it this year's "Wind Beneath My Wings") and a remake of Carmen's 1976 hit, "All by Myself."[7] Leroy said that "trying to out-emote Eric Carmen was almost crazy enough to work, and working with over-the-top Meat Loaf collaborator Jim Steinman seemed a sensible choice. But the results weren't much different than usual."[8] The Rolling Stone Album Guide gave the album one and a half stars out of five.[9]
