Michael Bublé – “Call Me Irresponsible” MAG

By Jamie S., Stephenville, TX, Stephenville, TX

If you are a fan of jazz, or ­music in general, it is certain that you will find Michael Bublé's album, “Call Me Irresponsible,” simply irresistible.

From the very start, Bublé grabs your attention with “The Best Is Yet to Come,” a song ­also sung by Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett. And if you have not completely fallen in love with Bublé's soulful voice after the first few songs, you will be swept off your feet by “Everything,” written by Bublé and his pianist, Alan Chang. Although this song strays from his traditional big-band style, the guitar and piano show that Bublé is not limited in his musicality.

Many of the songs have been previously recorded by artists like Sinatra, Mel Tormé, Leo­nard ­Cohen, and Elvis Presley, but Bublé's covers are anything but second-rate. With amazing vocals and incredible musical arrangements, he presents each song as something new and different.

Bublé's upbeat jazz tracks like “The Best Is Yet to Come,” “Call Me Irresponsible,” “I've Got the World on a String,” and “That's Life” complement the soulful songs like “Me and Mrs. Jones,” “I'm Your Man,” and “Lost.”

This album is, without a doubt, one of my favorites. It never grows old and is fitting for whatever mood I am in. If I am having a fantastic day or am a bit melancholy, this album is always a pick-me-up.

I love MB, seeing this pop up made my dad. Glad we have the same taste in music :p Honestly, I love this man. Personally, I love his newest album, but out of all 4 (not including EPs) this is my favorite to listen to all the way through. The only problem I have with it is Dream, not because it's not a good song, but because it likes to put me to sleep :p

It's nice to listen to classic music again. When the lyrics aren't about the size of a girl's boobs or about sex in clubs. Michael Buble is bringing class back to music, and thank god.

I totally agree, i love Michael Buble. He's recreating the music from the 50s and 60s.

I am also a teen that loves listening to Michael Buble's music... I've usually been the outcast of all my friends with music, because of my wide range of taste... But lately I've been surprised by the teens that are beginning to listen to his music... It shows that a lot of teens like me are tired of all the negative music out there...

That was an awesome review about his music... Keep it up! =)

I haven't been a teenager for a long time, in fact, two of my grandchildren are teenagers, but I compliment you on your choice of music and your comments on this album. You may have missed that Michael and Jann Arden wrote "Lost" but you are spot on about Michael's music being able to improve any mood. As far as his covers go, he often says that it is much easier to write a new song that people have nothing to compare it to, than to sing a song that many people have sung before. So, when he chooses to sing an older song that he loves, he tries to breathe new life into it, so that people of another generation can appreciate it, too. He refers to it as being an interpreter of songs, and I, for one, hope that he continues it for many years to come. His voice is so distinctive, that I not only listen to the songs that he sings in a new way, but also now listen to the words to these songs like I have never heard them before. He takes every aspect of every song and gets so personally involved in them that his take on the song can't help but take you to a new place. Congratulations for your insight into a man and his music. He is going to be hard for anyone to beat in this generation and be the nice guy that Michael Buble will always be.

It is so gratifying to see a publication by a teenager who really appreciates the music of my era. I don't care if Michael Buble is doing covers he adds something new and fresh to some already wonderful music. I also love his new songs. I am 67 years young,and one of the Australians who was happy to help make him popular by buying his CD's and going to his wonderful concerts. You see, you are never too old to appreciate what young people do if they do it right as he does. Cheers from down under.
