33⅓ is a series of books written about important and seminal albums in music lineage. One author per album explores, extols or criticises each album. Carl Wilson didn’t have it easy for his book though. While others have written about Neil Young’s Harvest, Nirvana’s In Utero, The Rolling Stones Exile in Main St., Wilson had Celine Dion’s Let’s Talk About Love to examine.
Rather than take potshots at the terminally uncool singer, Wilson goes on a year-long quest to find his inner Celine Dion fan and in the process scrutinises Dion’s unwavering global popularity as well as trying to find some personal taste over-ride switch which would enable gratification to be derived from Let’s Talk About Love. Sounds genuinely riveting.
Now, the internet takes over. Last month, Dion released a DVD set concerning her recent Las Vegas show A New Day. Over at fourfour, Rich, a 33⅓-enamoured blogger has found the real reason to celebrate Celine Dion – her head-bashingly, seemingly mad-cow related utter STRANGENESS. Her personality far over-shadows any MOR ballad she has or will ever again perform. Here in handy Youtube format taken from the aforemented DVD Behind the scenes documentaries, is footage proving Dion is a grade-A nutcase. Enjoy.
