Album Review - Michael Buble To Be Loved

I participated in this campaign for One2One Network. I received a free copy of the album to facilitate my review. By posting, I am eligible for incentives. All opinions stated are my own.

Everyone's favorite Canadian crooner, Michael Bublé, is back with a new album titled To Be Loved.

"I want to take you on a wonderful journey about love—all different kinds of love," Michael says. "The album swings big time: it rocks, it’s soulful, it’s happy, sometimes a little sad. It’s romantic, it’s yummy, and it’s heartfelt."

In To Be Loved, which is out now, you'll find the grammy award winner covering songs by Frank Sinatra, the Bee Gees, Jackson 5, Elvis Presley, Van Morrison, and more. In the mix of golden standards are four original songs co-written by Bublé, dipping into his personal life for inspiration.

I've long been a fan of Michael Buble. There's just something about his smooth and easy voice - no matter what he is singing - that makes me instantly feel connected. I've been listening to his new CD, To Be Loved, and from start to finish, there's not a bad song. It's not often that I can honestly say I like every single song on an album, but with this one, I can. It is such a great collection. 

A few standout favorites for me: "To Love Somebody" (Bee Gees) and "Who's Loving You" (the Jackson Five). "Come Dance With Me" is also really upbeat and a lot of fun. My absolute favorite track on the album is the Nancy and Frank Sinatra classic "Something Stupid" which features Reese Witherspoon. Michael and Reese sound incredible together and I would  love to see them perform live. It's a great song and I find myself listening to that one over and over.

You can buy Michael Buble's To Be Loved on Amazon and ITunes.
