Michael Buble's latest album, 'To Be Loved' is another good one.
The album includes 4 original songs by Michael. I'm split on these 4. I really like 2 of them, and the other 2, for me, are just so so. My favorite of the 4 is 'It's a Beautiful Day'. I really like it. It has an upbeat, splash of cool water on a bright sunny day kind of sound. This will be a song that I'll add to my 'Monday Morning' playlist.
The other songs on the album are classics which Buble has put his own touch on. He gives them all a new sound with his classically smooth voice. His sound just seems to make you feel good, and you can't help but smile while listening. Some of my favorites include, 'Young at Heart', 'Come Dance with Me' and 'You've Got a Friend in Me'. Of course, the latter one may have your kids screaming to watch a certain movie about toys, but a small sacrifice to make for a good piece of music.
I have to admit I didn't love every song on the album, but then I wouldn't call myself a fan of Michael Buble. However, the majority of the songs are really good. If you're looking for some new dinner party music, or some new relaxing by the pool tunes, then the album is worth the purchase. If you're already a fan of Buble, then I'm sure you'll love this album just as much as his previous 6. It is of consistent quality; smooth feel good songs in the classic songwriter standard.
