Product Description

Product Description

On 'call Me Irresponsible', Canadian Crooner Michael Buble Has Created an Extraordinary Album Filled with Some of his Favourite Songs. His Deep and Lush Vocal, with his Inimitable Sense of Phrase and Timing, Infuse Every Corner of the Recordings. The Result is an Album that is Quintessentially Bublé: All-out Entertainment! Tracks on the Album Include: The Self-penned First Single 'everything'; 'i'm Your Man' (Written by Leonard Cohen); 'me and Mrs Jones' (Written by Kenny Gamble, Leon Huff and Cary Gilbert); 'i've Got the World on a String' (Written by Harold Arlen and Ted Koehler); 'it Had Better Be Tonight' (Written by Henry Mancini, Franco Migliacci (Italian Lyric) and Johnny Mercer (English Lyric); The Title Track 'call Me Irresponsible' (Written by Sammy Cahn and Jimmy Van Heusen) and the Buble Penned, 'lost'.

Amazon.ca

It's no coincidence that Michael Bublé's new album starts with just his voice and some fingersnaps on "The Best Is Yet to Come," a song made famous by Frank Sinatra. The Canadian smoothie looks longingly towards early-'60s Vegas, an impression quickly reinforced when a boisterous horn section makes its grand entrance, about 20 seconds into the track. That Bublé means business is confirmed by the second cut, a fast-paced take on Henry Mancini's "It Had Better Be Tonight," and of course by the CD's very title, another song identified with Sinatra as his cockiest. There are just a few sidesteps from the retro formula that's served Bublé so well so far: a languid duet with Brazilian star Ivan Lins on the bossa "Wonderful Tonight," a gospel choir on "That's Life." Interestingly, Bublé co-wrote the best of those sidesteps, "Everything," a Norah Jones-esque number that alluringly harks back to sunny '70s pop. It's also the only song on the album produced by Bob Rock (best known for his work with Metallica), sending out a strong signal that Bublé should reach out to unlikely collaborators more often. --Elisabeth Vincentelli

Format: Audio CD
This is a very good CD, no doubt, but something's not quite gellin' for me when I listen to it. I'm not ready to call it Bublé's best quite yet. Now, I could just be biased from listening to his previous two studio releases so much - if they had been vinyl I would have long since worn the needle through to the other side. I don't have trouble with his mixing old standards with new songs, nor with him choosing classic songs that are not from the "crooner" genre (which he and Foster have been doing since their first effort). It is, in fact, his renditions of those classic "crooner" numbers, like "The Best Is Yet To Come" and "I've Got The World On A String," that give me so much pause. Bublé is no Bennett or Sinatra - nor should he be - so it's a little disconcerting to hear these standards sung (and arranged) differently. I actually hope he does more original stuff on future releases. Much as I love those old standards, it's a case of "been there, done that."

Format: Audio CD
As a performer, Bublé is the closest thing to Frank Sinatra there is today.

"Call Me Irresponsible" is the latest offering from Canadian hot-young-thing Michael Bublé. The handsome singer has already gained success in recent years with albums "It's Time" and "Caught In The Act" and singles including one of 2005's most played radio tracks "Home".

With new and original material the crooner hopes to gain a new and more contemporary following.

To this end, the new album mixes old standards with new songs such as "Lost" - a melancholy tribute to a break-up - and the first single from the album," Everything".

While fellow artists trying to emulate the sounds of Ol' Blue Eyes and his gang may stick to the tried and tested formulas of Rat Pack songs, Bublé's new album departs from the crooner age, choosing classic songs that are not from the expected genre, including "Me and Mrs Jones", Eric Clapton's "Wonderful Tonight" and "Always On My Mind" - the love song made famous by Elvis Presley.

There is almost half a really good record on this studio album. But, once again, glossy David Foster productions of overly-exposed songs associated with Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett dominate.

The backing band is top-notch. "Call Me Irresponsible" was certainly not cheap to make. Bublé's voice has body and he can carry a tune well but he's not a particularly expressive singer. Thus, his Las-Vegas-style version of Billy Paul's smoldering classic "Me and Mrs. Jones "strips all the sex and conflict an lyrical pathos out of it. Bublé's British actress girlfriend Emily Blunt ("The Devil Wears Prada") coos the closing lines.

Format: Audio CD
Reprise/ Warner presents "CALL ME IRRESPONSIBLE" [Special Edition], featuring pop vocalist of the millennium Michael Buble, the Vancouver crooner with his latest release with new material and some vintage standards --- Canadian crooner's third studio release, is about as responsible as it gets --- featuring an unforgettable youthful style that takes you back to the '40s, '50s and '60s --- listening to every tune on this album brings back memories of Nat King Cole (one of my favorite singers of all time), Tony Bennett and Frank Sinatra as they were crooning favorite standards of the day --- Buble is a cross between James Dean and Elvis Presley in appearance, with the style and ability of Frank Sinatra and Bobby Darin --- Michael has the uncanny ability to nail each track with his signature style and making it his own.

Buble's performance is impeccable, the renditions are simply from the heart --- one can hardly pick a stand out, entire recording draws on the swinging Clayton-Hamilton Orchestra at his back, plus slow tempos with blends of original sentiment and gorgeous melodies in the order in which they appear:

1. "The Best Is Yet to Come" (3:05) - (Cy Coleman/Carolyn Leigh) - One of Tony Bennett's all time greatest hits and Michael does it proud.

2. "It Had Better Be Tonight" (Meglio Stasera) (3:06) - (Mancini/Mercer/Migliacci) - Henry Mancini's catchy tune from "The Pink Panther", with a cool David Foster arrangement.

3. "Me and Mrs. Jones (4:33) - (Huff/Gamble/Gilbert) - Buble has a good thing going with this track

4. "I'm Your Man" (4:59) - (Leonard Cohen) - The beast won't go to sleep, has Buble bringing it home
