Have been laying my ears over this album for like a week now, and cant find myself more interested in it over n over again. Though the album has been realeased since november but got my hold on it by January ( that too coz of a friend of mine 😉 ). The albums genre is Pop Rock. A new and a great attempt by Celine. Most of the tracks are aside from the typical Celine style. Though according to my research critics havent appreciated the album that much and i was quite dissappointed of the views as i have found the album, off the edge and has some really great tracks with superb lyrics. Specially the title track Taking Chances, describing an unknown relationship with a Stranger who can be residing anywhere on This Planet thing called Earth. Just a subscript from the song:
“Don’t know much about your life.
Don’t know much about your world, but
Don’t want to be alone tonight,
On this planet they call earth.”
Track 3 has an Indi Pop touch to its music, the rest of the songs are about getting stronger, feeling like finding newer routes in life. Getting to know people, knowing how far or how close they are. A good way to spread the message of love as far as possibly it can be done..
My rating **** stars out of 5
PS: Done with my 50th post finally ^_^
