Michael Bubl: Come Fly With Me No stars How we rate: our writers tend to review music they like within their preferred genres.

If ever one CD was worth a little extra money, this one’s it. Of course, fans of the Canadian old-style crooner trapped in a young body, whose style is a mix of Frank Sinatra and Bobby Darin, will have snatched this off the shelves the first day it arrived. There are eight songs on the recording—“Nice ‘n Easy” and “Can’t Help Falling in Love” were recorded in the studio and the rest were recorded live.

What fans will really love, though, is the DVD that comes with the package, featuring twelve songs (including many of the eight on the CD) and interviews with Bublé. Also, you can see Bublé and his band recording three songs in the studio: “They Way You Look Tonight,” “For Once in My Life” and “Kissing a Fool.” Most of these tracks were part of Bublé’s self-titled first release, so the hook for fans are the two new studio songs and the chance to hear Bublé live.

Bublé’s got a great, traditional-sounding voice that sounds so fresh because he’s so young. And he’s shown he’s got a way with the classics, which don’t get that distinction because the songs suck. With so many great old songs out there, it’ll be interesting to see if Bublé decides to tackle the new canon of today’s singer-songwriters. John Mayer, anyone?
