The old-time saying "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" may apply to traditional pop crooner Michael Buble. Indeed, Michael Buble's albums have remained conservative, maintaining the sanctity of classic standards and pop songs. 2009's follow-up 2007's extremely successful Call Me Irresponsible does maintain a sense of classicism that has come to define Buble, but there are some risks taken this go around. Sure, he doesn't ruin or over interpret the classics, but as far as arrangements, orchestrations, and vocal nuances, Buble keeps the classics 'fresh' while also keeping them 'classic.' The album isn't perfect, but it is consistent and bodes well to keep Buble's career afloat. Buble never compromises himself on this album.

Opening with "Cry Me A River", instantly, one hears that Buble wishes to exploit a slightly more adventurous side without 'rocking the boat' too much. The orchestrations here are different but brilliant and add just the right amount of change without ruining the sanctity of the classic standard. Buble, as always sounds top-rate as a vocalist.

"All of Me" scales down the experimentation of "Cry Me A River", seeking to balance between 'innovation' and 'classicism'. While the performance is another 'home-run' for Buble, it doesn't trump the excellent, cutting-edge "Cry Me A River". "Georgia on My Mind", on the other hand, finds Michael Buble at his very best, bringing new, pitch-perfect nuance to the classic that helped to shape Ray Charles' career. "Crazy Love", the title track continues a hot streak for Buble.

I really do enjoy this cd. Michael Buble is extremely talented as a performer and a vocalist and it is pretty hard for him to do wrong. But he does hit some definite missteps here. When I played it for the first time I was rather puzzled wondering what sort of cd he had tried to put together. It was very different from his others and I had to play it another 5 to 6 times before I really formed my true opinion.

Michaels's previous cds have all emphasized pop standards sung with class and quality in the big band style. He would also throw in a couple of redos of more current songs for fun. He also started to venture into the pop genre with his singles HOME and EVERYTHING. He continues his venture here with HAVEN'T MET YOU YET which seems to be getting mixed reviews. I first found it rather simple but find it to be a fun, playful song on this new cd.

It is obvious that Michael is trying to go more pop on this cd and the result will end up in mixed reactions from fans. What truly stands out is that the styling and interpretations he applies to most of the standards here are just off the mark. CRY ME A RIVER is an emotional song in itself with its heartwrenching lyrics. Rather than emphasize the emotional delivery he has a loud orchestral intro worthy of James Bond lead up to his vocal. It just doesn't work and is over the top big time. The other is STARDUST sung with NATURALLY 7. I felt like I was listening to the Andrew Sisters or even Lawrence Welk. This was such an old fashioned sappy interptretation that has no emotional value. This song also could have been perfect for his vocal gifts.

So he is going pop and the cover of the cd is CRAZY LOVE, a very old song that has been sung by so many and is pure pop candy.

For years I've listened to Michael's music, his concerts and other live performances in rapt anticipation and have been appreciative of his obvious talents.

Right off the bat, I'd like to say a few things historically about what I've heard. Through his career, Michael's biggest curse is that he's often compared to someone else, and while this fact is often inescapable of many musicians, some never leave the shadows of their peers even when it becomes less obvious because of the fan base that surrounds them. How many times have we heard him being compared to Harry Connick Jnr., or picking up where he left off? How about Frank Sinatra? Or having the same seductive qualities that Elvis Presley had? Numerous and far too many times to cite.

His past albums have also highlighted these facts, too. Listening to `Surrender' on the album `Dream' you can hear him lifting his voice at those same moments that Elvis did in his signature renditions of the classic song. Some might say it's an homage, but I think more would say it's a failure on his part to make the song his own and letting the previous versions overshadow himself. These delicacies may not be obvious to the casual listener, but if you've listened to these songs for years and heard them in multiple versions by any previous named artist, then it just becomes glaring. The most in-your-face examples are early in his career where he definitely sounds like he's singing from under the wing or on the back porch of Harry.

But then comes this album and puts all the previous work, complaints, struggles and the like - to rest. Every song on this album has become his own and he has created a new standard for some of these old classics in a most memorable and quite gifted way.
