Released in 1995, just as her American success was gaining momentum, The French Album strengthened Celine Dion's ties to her French-Canadian roots. Nearly all of the songs on the album were written by Jean-Jacques Goldman, whose songcraft is remarkably similar to the adult contemporary pop that broadened her international success. That's not necessarily bad; it's just that listeners expecting something strange or exotic may be surprised by the fact that the only thing that's changed is the language. That said, The French Album is a well-constructed and entertaining adult pop record -- there may not be too many distinctive songs, but on the whole, it sounds quite nice.
