Michael Bublé's To Be Loved - Hits a Sweet Note with Me (Album Review)

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

Ready to be swept off your feet? Yes, I have been known to swoon for a crooner and Michael Bublé definitely fits the bill. He is here with a new album, #ToBeLoved and I just wanted to sound off that there is so much to love about it!

This Canadian singer may be famous for his covers of well known songs, but this album shows him stepping out with 4 original songs he co-wrote. The original songs like, Close your Eyes and I Got It Easy are soulful and memorable, and draw from the singer's own life and family.

My favorite song on the album was definitely, It's A Beautiful Day though, another co-written by Bublé. It was a great song about being better off without someone. Completely upbeat and fun. I found some of the songs on this album featuring other favorite personalities and singers of mine like Reese Witherspoon and Bryan Adams. After All was another of my favorites. I remember Junior High dances swaying to the ballads from Bryan Adams. Was I the only one?

I still love when he covers the classics I grew up with though. I just love it when he covers Sinatra. Such a great twist to those amazing songs!  Check out his clip of You Make Me Feel So Young

"I labored over every song, every note and every arrangement because I can’t resist trying to make each record better than my last one." - Michael Bublé
