Looking for other sources of inspiration has led Buble to Billy Paul for "Me And Mrs. Jones" which is done in a more matter-of-fact manner than the hand-wringing original; to Jack Jones for the title cut "Call Me Irresponsible" which is more laid back than the original despite the big band arrangement; to Eric Clapton whose "Wonderful Tonight" becomes a lovely Latin love song with assistance from the great Ivan Lins; and to Willie Nelson whose "Always On My Mind" is a beautiful song which gets the beautiful voice it deserves. A wide variety of sources and styles that Michael masters and makes his own.
Two polished diamonds that cement the new identity are "Everything" in which all previous influences are absent and it is Michael Buble emerging as his own man and the tender and laid back "I'm Your Man."
Special mention must go to the arrangements which swing when they need to and modulate for the tender moments such as "Lost." The upbeat arrangements of "It Had Better Be Tonight" (which can only be described as big band Italian salsa) and "Comin' Home Baby" (with it's backing vocals from Boyz II Men) are just brilliant.
A must for fans and a step towards world dominance by this Canadian superhero, this is a wonderful leap forward for an artist who in the past has been weighed down by his influences. But as he warns us all with the CD opener, "The Best Is Yet To Come."
If you like this genre of music, you'll love this CD.
it's way too predictable,it's like they were afraid to take any chance and just leave things as they were,witch is boring i guess,i love the americain songbook but i really think most versions of the swingtracks he did are lifeless.
-it had better be tonight
-me and mrs jones
-i've got the world on a string
-i'm your man
they are pretty decent versions not allway new and exiting but they are good but the rest of the album is uninspiring i think,everything sounds a bit too poppy for my taste nice song but that's it,as for the other interpretations,well they lack that certain something,i can't explain but overall this album doesn't exite me as his first did,it sounds just like i expected it to sound and that's predictable.his voice is like allways superb that's why i allready ordered tickets to see him live but this cd i'm not crazy about shame,next time michael be really irresponsible!!
Most of us who love Buble's style love all the "kicks" in the way he delivers a song. This is due to dynamic arrangements which include plenty of horns and strings with a great rhythm section. Even a ballad can deliver a "WOW" with the right kind of arrangement.
This CD fell short of the expectation I have of Michael Buble's recordings......Not totally his fault; his vocals are right on the money, but there is nothing exciting or unexpected about the songs.

He does some great old standards on this CD. For those who appreciate the early Buble when he was singing a lot of old Sinatra tunes.Published 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
