Yes I realize that I am late with this album but I tend to stick to artist I know which is usually in the Pop or R&B area. I’ve always been a fan of Buble because of his smooth voice. He’s definitely a crooner reincarnated with his melodic approach to music as old as the 30s. This album in particular covers old classics like “The Best Is Yet To Come” & “It Had Better Be Tonight.” What I’ve come to discover about this 38-year-old Canadian is the older the song, the better he sounds. It’s no wonder this was his big breakout album because its amazing.
Songs like “I’m Your Man” makes you want that fairytale love that you always heard about but never felt exist. The musicianship in these songs are incredible with blaring horns and soft strings and hitting drums. This was when music was real music and put into thought. Back when women were cherished, adored, and romanced. Buble’s vocals are very fitting of these different eras of music and he definitely held his own with vocal trio Boyz II Men on “Comin’ Home Baby.”
If you don’t have this album you should seriously treat yourself to it. Run a hot bubble bath, pour a glass of wine, and allow yourself to drift to a land that Buble wants to take you full of romance, love, sincerity, and affection.
