This review is from: To Be Loved (Audio CD)
Before I got the chance to listen to this album, my friend, who got me into Mr Buble in the first place, texted me to say that the new album was terrible. I texted back saying it was probably just different to his other stuff and that it would probably grow on her and I was certain that I would love it. How wrong I was! Mr Buble has got lazy. In the past his cover versions have had a twist on the originals e.g. I'm Your Man, which is brilliant and nothing like the original; its far better :) but the cover versions on this album are boring. The songs he has written are not too bad but Its a Beautiful Day sounds exactly like I Just Haven't Met You Yet. When I listened to After All, it just didn't sound right until Bryan Adams started singing and then it made perfect sense, as it sounds like an Adams song not a Buble song. All I can say to Michael is, if you were too busy getting married and getting your wife pregnant, you should have waited until you had time to work on a decent album because I'm afraid this is pretty dire. I just hope that you intend to play a lot of your old stuff at the London shows in July or I am going to be disappointed then as well and think you might be losing a couple of fans. Sorry!

Have to say I agree with all the comments here. I am a buble fan and am hoping he doesn't sing much from this album at the O2. I find the way he sings "mebbe" on "Nevertheless I'm in love with you" really grating.
