As a member of the One2One Network, I was given the opportunity to preview the new Michael Buble album, "To Be Loved." I had heard his name before, but I was really not familiar at all. I really didn't know what to expect, but I have a wide range of musical appreciation, so I was willing to give it a try in exchange for my honest opinions.
I began to realize while I listened that almost all of the songs on this album are recognizable covers originated by other artists. It almost gave me the feeling that I was watching a Las Vegas lounge act. It took me a little while to discover whether or not that was a good thing. Really, I would describe the music as "Easy Listening." It includes the type of songs you would hear on a TV show or movie soundtrack, or on a Muzak-type station in a mall or something, which aren't exactly the type of songs that I would normally seek out to listen to. However, it really was pleasant and even uplifting to my mood. I was showering and getting ready for my day as I played the album, and I have to admit that I found myself be-bopping around a little bit to some of the songs that I recognized.
All in all, I must say that I did enjoy listening to this album (which surprised me). If you are interested in checking it out, I recommend purchasing it from Amazon. If you buy the CD version, they include a free mp3 version of the album as well. Enjoy!
