Although the Rat Pack reigned in the famous ’50s, Michael Bublé should be given the title of “honorary member” today. His new CD, Crazy Love, takes on the classics crooned many decades ago with a new modern-edged sound.
While belting out classics such as “Georgia On My Mind,” Bublé sways in a new direction by combining the sweet melodies of the oldies with newer rhythms and edgier harmonies.
Without a doubt, this album maintains Bublé’s impeccable record as a remarkably talented singer. He’s not a fantastic songwriter, but his voice carries a poignant tone that reminds listeners of softer and gentler times. He is the epitome of “easy listening.”
It’s true that Bublé rarely deviates from his highly successful formula of renovating older hits and adding one or two new ones, but why mess with success? Chances are that if listeners loved his previous albums, this one will not disappoint.
