Michael Buble To Be Loved Album Review

Michael Buble went from being a popular Canadian crooner to a worldwide phenomenon thanks to his Christmas album of all things. His previous albums had been popular, but now the world is watching his new release, To Be Loved.

As far as Michael Buble albums go, this one is middle of the road. He doesn’t really stretch himself enough on each track to make you say’Wow’ like his previous albums have. Right out of the gate, Buble starts with a cover of “You Make Me Feel So Young” reminding you how he got his start covering the classics. He still sounds as great as ever crooning, but there is something missing.

When we pop to the next track, the original song “It’s A Beautiful Day,” it’s easy to see what it was. Michael Buble has outgrown his crooning roots. He started his career singing songs made famous by someone else, but now he is better when starring in his own songs. He doesn’t just need to try to sound like someone else. His voice bounces across the notes of his original tracks. He sounds so much more excited. His covers of “Have I Told You Lately That I Love You” and “To Love Somebody” just don’t have the same vibrancy.

Once again Michael Buble found some interesting people to work with. Canadian icon Bryan Adams is featured on a rocking track “After All” that has Adams’ trademark feel to the music. In a surprise appearance, superstar actress Reese Witherspoon sings along with Buble on “Something Stupid”.

Overall To Be Loved is a nice album and there will be some hits to come off of it, but it’s not his strongest offering.
