Christmas is vocalist Michael Bublé's first full-length holiday-themed album since his 2003 EP Let It Snow. As with that album, Christmas features Bublé backed by small ensembles as well as his big band and orchestra, and includes a handful of classic Christmas songs. In that sense, the album is a rather old-school affair, with Bublé in prime Bing Crosby-meets-Dean Martin vocal style tackling such chestnuts as "It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas," "Silent Night," and "I'll Be Home for Christmas." There are also some fine, contemporary, if still retro-sounding, pop moments here including Bublé's duet with the British female pop trio the Puppini Sisters on "Jingle Bells," and his inspired, slightly melancholy reworking of Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas Is You." Ultimately, Christmas is a warm and inviting album that showcases Bublé's impeccable vocal chops. ~ Matt Collar

On the surface, the title of Michael Bublé's tenth studio album, 2018's Love, announces a swinging collection of standards and originals all thematically centered on themes of romance, fidelity, and desire. That said, it could also speak to two heart-wrenching years leading up to Love, during which time the singer's then three-year-old son was diagnosed with liver cancer and underwent chemotherapy and radiation treatments. Prior to the release of Love, Bublé even intimated in an interview that, in light of his son's illness, he might be ready to retire. All these notions of love and the stakes that drive our passionate emotions are redolent on the album, whose brightly swinging and upbeat production via longtime mentor David Foster belies the personal turmoil of Bublé's private life. Which isn't to say that Love is a sad album. These are lush arrangements (split between big band, small group, and orchestra) via Foster and pianist Alan Broadbent that showcase Bublé's warm vocals. Much of it evokes the classic '40s and '50s pop Bublé so clearly admires. His supple voice is backed throughout by his snappy ensemble, featuring pros like Weather Report drummer Peter Erskine, noted Diana Krall bassist Ben Wolfe, longtime Bublé associate pianist Alang Chang, and others. There are also two gorgeous duets, including a charming take on "La Vie en Rose" with acclaimed vocalist Cécile McLorin Salvant and a heartfelt rendition of "Help Me Make It Through the Night" with Loren Allred. As with past albums, there are also nods to contemporary pop music, represented here by the catchy, boy band-esque Charlie Puth co-write "Love You Anymore." Similarly, Bublé draws upon his experience as a parent with the heartfelt adult contemporary ballad "Forever Now," in which he sings "You know as well as anybody how tough this life can be/But you've got so much strength inside you/A strength I pray you'll never need." Primarily, Love builds upon Bublé's own strengths, as he dives into the Louis Prima-style jump blues of "Such a Night," evokes Frank Sinatra's of-the-cuff élan with the Deluxe Edition bonus track "I Get a Kick Out of You," and even manages to sidestep comparisons to Nat King Cole as he conjures his own brand of vocal magic on "Unforgettable." In many ways, Love is the epitome of the kind of traditional big-band pop album that Bublé has been honing for over a decade. The difference here is that the heart of the album lies not only in his immense vocal skill, but in his moving devotion to his son, his family, and his fans. ~ Matt Collar

Michael Bublé Meets Madison Square Garden finds Canadian crooner Bublé making a highly anticipated appearance at the storied New York City concert venue. Often seen as a symbolic moment for a performer having achieved a high level of populist success, Madison Square Garden performances have led to a few well-known live albums, including one from Bublé's own most notable influence, Frank Sinatra. Interestingly, while Sinatra's 1974 album The Main Event came toward the latter half of his career, Bublé's appeared right as some critics and even his contemporaries like smooth jazz trumpeter Chris Botti were proclaiming his ascension to Sinatra's throne as the best traditional pop vocalist of his generation. Setting such grandiose summations aside, Bublé is at the very least an incredibly talented vocalist who grew from a nice kid singer in the early part of the decade to a truly swinging interpreter of the Great American Songbook canon by the end of the decade. Furthermore, Bublé found the right modern pop/soul songs -- often co-written by himself ("Lost," "Home") -- which has worked to fully contemporize his likable and swaggering stage persona, all of which is readily apparent on Meets Madison Square Garden. Backed here by his de rigueur big band, Bublé has a joyful and abundantly devilish rapport with the audience and is clearly as in love with them as they are with him. Not surprisingly, there was some buzz surrounding Bublé's Madison Square Garden concert, which marked not only his first appearance at the Garden, but also his return visit to the famous Blue Note jazz club where he made his original N.Y.C. debut. Included with the CD of Michael Bublé Meets Madison Square Garden is a DVD documentary detailing this return visit as well as the behind-the-scenes buildup and performance of his Madison Square Garden concert. ~ Matt Collar

Michael Bublé's six-song Special Delivery features a handful of ballads and two uptempo numbers that make the most of his supple crooner vocals and winning charm. Included here are such standards as "These Foolish Things (Remind Me of You)," "Dream a Little Dream of Me," and "Mack the Knife." Longtime listeners of Bublé's will be pleased with the big band and symphonic ensemble arrangements that have become the singer's stock in trade. Although this is a short release, likely intended as a pleasant side-car to Bublé's 2009 full-length Crazy Love, Special Delivery is nonetheless a must hear for fans. ~ Matt Collar

For Michael Bublé, 2003 was a whirlwind year that included the release of his successful debut album, an international tour, a Christmas EP, and tons of promotional appearances and press interviews. Therefore, it is not surprising that, in lieu of a proper follow-up, Bublé has elected to keep his fan base happy with Come Fly with Me, a CD/DVD combo package that features live performances from several of his tour dates along with two new studio tracks. The DVD is the more interesting of the two discs, as it gives a glimpse into the fast-paced world of a rising star, combining musical numbers and candid footage shot during the tour. Bublé is seen vivaciously performing with his band while snippets of behind-the-scenes interviews act as interludes between the songs. The brief moments provide a little background history and make him out to be an average guy who was blessed with talent and enjoys what he is doing. Although it is nice to get a feel for the person, what is most important is the music, and he more than proves that he is both an excellent vocalist and entertainer. He sounds great, the band is hot, and Bublé appears to genuinely love performing for an audience. However, the editing of the musical footage is a major distraction. Although the audio track sounds as if it came from one uncut song performance, the visuals are made up of several filmed concerts and are spliced together in a rather jarring fashion. Every two to three seconds a different shot of Bublé singing a song is edited in (often in layers), but the specific shot onscreen may not be from the same performance as the recorded concert audio. Therefore, there are times when the visuals don't match the audio track (much like a foreign film dub). While this technique may be interesting and thematic for the opening title track, it quickly becomes annoying when done for over an hour. The CD includes live versions of six songs featured on the DVD along with two new studio tracks produced by David Foster. "Nice 'n Easy" is just like its title, as Bublé sings with a relaxed swagger that charms the listener, but "Can't Help Falling in Love" suffers from a schmaltzy Foster arrangement that Bublé tries his best to overcome. The song sounds even worse when followed by a brilliant live rendition of "My Funny Valentine." Although the DVD may be more enjoyable if played with the television off, Come Fly with Me has enough excellent musical moments to keep fans tuned in to Bublé's one-man revival of standards. ~ Aaron Latham

Featured as a PBS "Great Performances," Caught in the Act finds modern-day crooner Michael Bublé performing live at the Wiltern Theatre in Los Angeles. Bublé has a warm, naturally pure voice perfectly suited to the swinging standards and heartfelt contemporary ballads he's made his name with since his debut in 2003. It doesn't hurt either that here he is backed by a full big band including a string section. Bublé's between-song banter is also charming and adds to the loose and fun feel of the album. Included are such classic songs as "Summer Wind" and "The More I See You," as well as the hit "Home." Also featured here is a full DVD of the rest of the live show as well as some other bonus material. ~ Matt Collar

More than any of his contemporaries, vocalist Michael Bublé has bridged the gap between standards-oriented vocal pop and more contemporary pop vocals. Having perfected the mix on his superb 2003 effort, It's Time, which found the Frank Sinatra-influenced singer covering both "I've Got You Under My Skin" and Leon Russell's R&B ballad "A Song for You," Bublé wisely doesn't mess with a good thing on 2007's Call Me Irresponsible. Once again delving into a mix of swinging big-band numbers and classic pop hits such as the wickedly hip '60s standard "Comin' Home Baby" (featuring backing vocals from Boyz II Men), the album is a breezy, stylish good time. And while such cuts as "The Best Is Yet to Come" and the laid-back title track comfortably cast Bublé as a modern-day crooner consistent with his billing, the unexpected reworkings of contemporary pop songs often make the biggest impact. To these ends, his bossa nova duet with vocalist Ivan Lins on Eric Clapton's "Wonderful Tonight" and the reharmonized Willie Nelson perennial "Always on My Mind" work particularly well here, not as cheeky cabaret but as artfully crafted and devastatingly moving ballads. And it's not just the cover tunes that drive the album; on the contrary, much like the Bublé co-written ballad "Home" defined the mood of It's Time, his sparkling melodic pop original "Everything" helps make Call Me Irresponsible a truly welcome pop album by any standard. This CD was nominated for a Grammy award in 2007 as Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album, and "Everything" was nominated for Best Male Pop Performance. ~ Matt Collar

Singer Michael Bublé's 2010 bonus material offering Hollywood: The Deluxe EP follows his 2009 full-length effort Crazy Love and features four new studio songs and four live performance tracks. Hollywood offers much to tide longtime Bublé fans over until his next studio album, not the least of which is the gleeful title cut co-written by Bublé himself. Similarly, the David Foster/Jeremy Lubbock/Richard Marx ballad "Best of Me" showcases Bublé's talent for contemporary pop crooning, as does his cover of Billy Vera's '80s hit "At This Moment." The rest of the EP is rounded out with a studio take on the classic soul tune "Some Kind of Wonderful," the melancholy orchestral ballad "End of May," and four live tracks including a performance of the Crazy Love single "Haven't Met You Yet" and swaggering take on the Philly soul classic "Me and Mrs. Jones" featuring a spirited crowd singalong on the chorus. ~ Matt Collar
