Overview

It's Time [Bonus Tracks]

It’s one thing to become an “overnight success”; it’s quite another to keep evolving as a recording artist. Canadian vocal sensation Michael Bublé indeed hit it big with his first album, resulting in wide media coverage, film appearances, and impressive international sales. We’ve seen it happen before, though: huge opening, then the quick nosedive into obscurity as a flash-in-the-pan performer’s vocal limitations quickly reveal themselves. With his second full-length album, It’s Time, Bublé looks to be beating the odds. He’s matured as a singer, growing in leaps and bounds from the overly mannered Sinatra wannabe of his earlier recordings to a confident balladeer and assured, swinging crooner. And for all Bublé’s respect for the tradition, he’s no retro clone. It’s Time bursts with an in-the-moment verve, exemplified by the winning mix of snappy vintage tunes of all casts, from such timeless standards as “I’ve Got You Under My Skin” and “Try a Little Tenderness” to the Beatles’ “Can’t Buy Me Love,” Leon Russell’s “A Song for You,” and the Motown classic “How Sweet It Is.” (There’s even a Ray Charles tribute in the form of Bublé’s heartfelt “You Don’t Know Me.”) When it comes to young singers picking up Harry Connick Jr.'s mantle, new competition seems to sprout like wildflowers. Bublé has that extra-special something -- call it authentic charm -- that’s going to keep him in the game. (The special-edition album of It’s Time features two additional tracks: “Mack the Knife” and “Dream a Little Dream of Me.”)
