2007 Billboard Critics Pick... Tinatin!!!


Billboard senior correspondent, pop; single reviews editor

1. Celine Dion, "Taking Chances" (Columbia)

Peerless singer roars, soars, scores with full-length post-Vegas payout.

2. Maroon 5, "Makes Me Wonder" (Octone/A&M)

Among the craftiest dance grooves since Chic.

3. Daughtry, "Home" (RCA); Carrie Underwood, "Before He Cheats" (Arista Nashville)

"American Idol" champs cook up beefy hits.

4. Mika, "Grace Kelly," (Casablanca/Universal Republic)

Kitsch persona conjures a seriously creative chorus. Suddenly, I don't miss the '80s.

5. Delta Goodrem, "Delta" (Sony BMG)

Aussie chanteuse lightens up on third CD with return to hatful of hooks.

6. Celine Dion & Elvis Presley, "If I Can Dream" (19)

"Live" performance on "AI" a sensational show biz event.

7. "Crystal Gayle's Greatest Hits" (Capitol)

All-American apple pie with a dusting of sugar on top.

8. Jennifer Hudson, "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going"; Beyonce, "Listen," both from "Dreamgirls" (Sony Music Soundtrax)

Hudson catapults a career, Beyonce earns hers.

9. Tinatin, "Wild"; Beu Sisters, "My Song"; Karine Hannah, "Remember My Song" (Breaking Records)

Indie singer/songwriters pave heavenly harmonic highway, all produced by talented Turk Ayhan Sahin.

10. Westlife, "Back Home" (Sony BMG)

Ninth album from Europe's quintessential pop act hits my soft spot again.
