Condition: Used - Very Good No Description Available.Genre: VocalsMedia Format: Compact DiskRating: Release Date: 8-FEB-2005 Michael Bublé's assured debut and the tireless year of globe-trotting touring he spent promoting it elevated the 20-something Vancouver native into the first rank of pop crooner revivalists. His sophomore studio follow-up largely turns on the same formula that helped make his considerable vocal prowess so attractive to mainstream audiences, mixing the nigh flawless, if expected Sinatra-channeling ("I've Got You Under My Skin") with more playful and inviting renditions of pop standards like the Gershwin's "A Foggy Day in London Town," "Feeling Good," "Try A Little Tenderness" and Cole Porter's "I've Got You Under My Skin." But it's the eclectic mix of more contemporary material the singer seasons them with -- apt tribute to Bublé hero Bobby Darin -- that keeps him walking the narrow tightrope between artistic intrigue (a blues-tinged vamp of Holland-Dozier-Holland's "How Sweet It Is," Leon Russell's lovely "Song For You," with a guest turn by Chris Botti) and the kitsch-laden abyss ("Quando, Quando, Quando"'s Euro-centric duet with Nelly Furtado, a ring-a-ding-fling with the Beatles' "Can't Buy Me Love" that echoes fellow Canadian crooner/rival Matt Dusk's more successful flirtation with Lennon-McCartney). Arranger/producer Tommy LiPuma offers Bublé a welcome swinging jazz showcase on "The More I See of You," a bracing respite from the rest of producer David Foster's slick, if typically bloodless MOR production. -- Jerry McCulley Note: Michael Bublé and More
This is a terrific album, probably the singer's best yet. I forsee a big future for this young man, and have bought all of his albums. I would have given "IT'S TIME" five stars except for the problem described below.There is one serious flaw in this album that you might want to know about: due to Warner Brothers' (the parent company of Reprise) heavy-handed anti-piracy programming, "IT'S TIME" will not play on a computer, and therefore cannot be uploaded into iTunes and recorded onto an iPod or other such M..
Pop vocalist of the millennium is Michael Buble, the Vancouver crooner with his latest release "It's Time", arriving near the eve Valentine's Day Buble with new material and some vintage standards...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), Bing Crosby, Bobby Darin, Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra as they were crooning favorite standards of the ..
Oh my this cd is soooooooo hot. My eardrums are smokin' and so will yours. David Foster and Humberto Gatica prove once again that their partnership in sound production has no rival for attention in my ears.Michael Bublé and Nelly Furtado sing a sentimental samba duet that sealed my affection at track four. "Quando, Quando, Quando" is so outstanding. It starts with a gentle guitar by Heitor Pereira and spectacular flute by Dan Higgins. The echo of Nelly Furtado's voice is lovely and her voice is so com..
