Crazy Love - Michael Buble

The below mentioned product(s) was/were given to me at no charge for review. I am not being monetarily paid for this review (other than receipt of the free product). I will give my honest opinion and thoughts regarding said product(s).

Warner Bros Records has asked me to review the newest Michael Bublé CD, Crazy Love.

The official word from Warner Bros is this:

'Crazy Love', Michael Bublé's first CD in two and a half years, features two original songs along with his always original take on 11 standards from various eras. The multi-Grammy winning artist hunkered down in recording studios in LA, Brooklyn, New York and his hometown of Vancouver for the last six months to make his 'ultimate record about the inevitable roller coaster ride of relationships.' The first single, 'Haven't Met You Yet,' written by Bublé (with Alan Chang and Amy Foster) is scheduled to be released to radio on August 31st. Additional tunes on the album include 'Cry Me A River,' 'You're Nobody Till Somebody Loves You,' 'Georgia On My Mind' and 'Baby (You've Got What It Takes)' which was performed with Sharon Jones and The Dap-Kings. The title song is a cover of the Van Morrison gem 'Crazy Love.' The CD closes out with a haunting version of 'Stardust' which is performed with the acapella group Naturally 7. The album was produced by David Foster, Bob Rock and Humberto Gatica.

I have listened to the CD over and over this week while cleaning my house and doing my homework and cooking dinner and I love it. Sometimes I don’t really care for a particular cover of a song coughMr. & Mrs. Jonescough, however, I can say that his cover on this CD of Heartache Tonight and All of Me are two of the best I have heard in a long time. IMHO of course. I was going to put the CD in the car so I could listen on my way to work but I can’t keep it out of my daughter’s room long enough. If she was older, she would probably be one of those weird stalker fans. She has a photo collage on her nightstand of various Michael Bublé CD covers, flowers and a wedding ring. I’m not sure exactly where she’s going with that. She is only 12 after all. I'll be broke if she ever finds out there is an official Michael Bublé website.
