The process of putting together All the Way... A Decade of Song was laborious for all involved, from balancing the number of hits and new songs to ensuring that each of the latest tracks showed a new side of Dion. "We had hourly conversations, back and forth, about what the combination should be," said John Doelp, the album's co-executive producer.
He added, "We wanted to make sure we had some new sounds and that we were able to go to new places". Co-executive producer Vito Luprano added: "The first idea was to record three new songs, then Dion said, 'Let's go for five,' her lucky number. But we had so many great songs coming in that we ended up recording nine. Out of that, we decided to go with seven." All the Way... A Decade of Song garnered positive reviews from music critics. They praised the first uptempo single "That's the Way It Is" and a ballad "If Walls Could Talk". Some criticism was directed towards including a small number of hits and many new recordings.
Despite that, the album became a commercial success throughout the world and peaked at number one in every major music market around the globe. All the Way... A Decade of Song has sold over twenty-two million copies worldwide, including over nine million in the United States, five million in Europe, two million in Japan and one million units in Canada.
The album a reminder of why the decade has been Dion's signature. All the Way... A Decade of Song is Dion's most focused album yet, drawing on a team of collaborators that understands this artists's strengths.
The first single "That's the Way It Is", a welcome uptempo number "I Want You to Need Me", a consummate love song ripe for a second single "If Walls Could Talk" "Then You Look at Me", a characteristically "roof-raising, fan-stoking" Dion anthem her "beyond-the-pale" duet with Frank Sinatra on "All the Way" and "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face", a remake that "affirms Dion's ability to lay low and still scintillate.
