Call Me Irresponsibleby Michael Bublé
Riding a wave of multi-platinum chart-toppers, Michael Bublé presents his third studio album, Call Me Irresponsible, featuring a David Foster-produced set of classic and contemporary songs, from "The Best Is Yet to Come" and "I've Got the World on a String" to a pair of Bublé originals. With the swinging Clayton-Hamilton Orchestra at his back, Bublé launches into such classic jazz fare as the finger-snapping title track while also taking in songs from Leonard Cohen ("I'm Your Man"), Henry Mancini (the Latin-flavored "It Had Better Be Tonight"), and Mel Tormé ("I'm Coming Home Baby") -- in a funky, cool-cat rendition assisted by the vocals of Boyz II Men. Bublé's own songs, co-written with Amy Foster-Gillis and Alan Chang, veer from the touching ballad "Lost" to the feel-good single "Everything," the album's catchiest track by a mile. Altogether, the suave, self-assured results more than ever reveal this heartthrob crooner to be a new-model Frank Sinatra. More like call him irresistible. [Note: The special edition includes the bonus cut "Love."]

What a great album! He's even better in concert if you get a chance to catch him! There's a lot of great tunes!
I have every CD by Michael and love everyone of them. This one is no different. And I can't wait for his next CD.
From the sounds that are coming from his samples....this is going to be Michael's biggest and best c.d. yet. From his new song "Everything" to Me and Mrs. Jones this is going to win every heart and award out there in this coming year!!! Congrats Michael...you shoot and scored again.
Buble hits it out of the park. I love his voice and his take on every song - in particular the 2 songs that buble penned are amazing. Simply put - this is an amazing amazing testament to buble's ability to sing - and to write songs that are sure to become major hits which certainly will follow the international success and appeal of the smash hit 'home' from his last cd.
What else can you say about this guy that hasn't already been said? I'm so glad he is out there trying to continue the legacy of wonderful and talented American singers and songwriters who preceded him. Hopefully his younger audiences will continue to appreciate that "standards" will never go out of style.
Buble....Sinatra lives again. Great CD....especially great to listen to [when] in traffic--keeps that blood pressure, road rage and all that bumper to bumper frustration in check. Like a long, cool drink of water from a bubbling mountain stream. Nice.........
This is the best c.d. that Michael has ever made...each song better than the next!!! If you do not pick up this disc you will have missed hearing a once in a life time perfect choice of songs and voice. He hit the ball right out of the park with this jewel!!!! Love it!!!
I loved "It's Time" and 'Caught in the Act" but unfortunately this one just falls short. Everything is a good song and also The Way You Look Tonight but the rest is generally disappointing.
Once again....Michael Buble has not disappointed us with this CD. I knew by about the 3rd song that I was going to love it and by the end....sure enough, I did! I'm going to have a hard time deciding which song is my favorite. He's done an exceptional remake of Mrs. Jones. It's so smooth it just makes feel good down to your toes. Makes you just want to kick back with a glass of wine, put your feet up, close your eyes and let him take you away with his music. I love it!
Michael Buble has unbelievably quality sound. His slow themes will draw you in and his up tempo stuff will keep you listening for hours. He truly has earned the right to be compared to the likes of Martin and Sinatra.
I heard the song "Everything" on the radio and it is soooo amazing! I love it!!! Love Michael Buble!!
This is a great album!! It has a wonderful mix of tunes and of course, Michael is wonderful, too!!
If all music was like this I would start listening to the radio again. Brilliant.
im mostly into metal, hardcore and stuff like but you cant listen to it all the time gets kinda boring, but mr. buble has got a voice on him and the music is poppin mos def good on the ears wouldnt mind seein him in concert be pretty intersting.
I have 3 of his albums and they can't come out fast enough---he's the greatest since Bennett and Sinatra!
Michael. oh, Michael. He's such an amazing performer. He has an amazing voice. Great looking as well. I love him, and will buy every single album he makes.
Michael can clearly do standards. What i love is his versatility. "Everything" and "Home" are beautifully written and expressed. I am hoping he does more new songs and a full Christmas Album. Full Michael, not just a small sample!
Without question, this record changed my life. I used to be hearing impared. Just listening to it has changed the way that hear and interpret sound. Everyday things that I once called "noise" I now process as auditory magic. Birds sing brighter, voices sound harmonious, and even traffic sounds orchestral. I am forever in debt to Mr.Buble for this incredible gift. God bless Micheal Buble!!!
Listening to Michael makes me as giddy as a school girl. A smile is practically frozen on my face during every song. His music always puts me in a better mood.
This CD has a mixed variety of music from Henry Mancini, Eric Clapton, Leon Huff, Harold Arlen, and of course Michael Buble'. Variety is the spice of life, and this is spicey! Enjoy!
