Crazy Love is the sixth studio album released by Canadian vocalist Michael Bublé, released on October 9, 2009.[4] After only three days of sales, the album opened atop the Billboard 200 chart with 132,000 copies, making the album Bublé's second number one album. Spending the first full week at the top, the album increased in sales to 203,000 copies, staying again at the number one spot on its second week. In Australia, the album debuted at number one on the ARIA Albums Chart and spent six non-consecutive weeks number one. It has since been certified five times platinum.[5] In the United Kingdom, Crazy Love topped the album charts.

As of December 2013, the album has sold 3 million copies in the UK.[6] The album won the award for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album at the 53rd Grammy Awards.[7]

Album information[edit]

The album was recorded over a period of six months in Los Angeles, New York, and Vancouver, Michael Bublé's hometown. Produced by David Foster, Bob Rock and Humberto Gatica, Bublé describes Crazy Love as the "ultimate record about the inevitable roller coaster ride of relationships." The album was named after Van Morrison's 1970 song, "Crazy Love", with a cover version included.[2] Bublé commented on the recording process for the album: "I started this record knowing I was going to record it differently than my previous ones. I dug way deeper and was more introspective on this one. Basically, I sang the truth - made each song autobiographical - and you can definitely hear the difference. I went back to the way my idols made their records. I wanted an organic feel - so people could feel like they were in the studio with me. The musicians and I all sat in the room, recorded it right from the floor and we let the sounds all come together and bleed into one another. It's not contrived. Not too perfect. It just feels really good."[8]

Bublé co-wrote the album's two singles, "Haven't Met You Yet" and "Hold On" with longtime collaborators Alan Chang and Amy Foster. The first single, "Haven't Met You Yet", was released on August 31, 2009.[9] Weeks prior to this single, Bublé offered his audience an early glimpse at Crazy Love with a "playful" remix of "Baby (You've Got What It Takes)". The opening part for the single "Cry Me a River" was written by Bublé in a Bond-like theme because he wanted the song to sound "really cinematic, really over the top and bombastic".[10] "Cry Me a River" was used in the BBC's advertising for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. The track "Stardust" was recorded in one take.[11] On 18 April 2010, Bublé took home four Juno Awards for Juno Fan Choice Award, Single of the Year – "Haven't Met You Yet", Album of the Year – Crazy Love, and Pop Album of the Year – Crazy Love, and two Juno nominations for Artist of the Year and Songwriter of the Year. Crazy Love producers David Foster and Bob Rock both received two separate nominations of their own for the Jack Richardson Producer of the Year Award, with Bob Rock winning the award.[12][13]

Release[edit]

The album was initially planned for release on October 13, 2009; however, it was released four days early, in order to coincide with Bublé's appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show,[14] where Bublé performed the album's first single "Haven't Met You Yet".[15] On August 23, 2010, it was confirmed that a special edition of Crazy Love would be released in the fall.[16] On October 10, 2010, the re-release was confirmed to become available on October 18, 2010 in Europe, and on October 25, 2010 in the U.S.[17] The re-release contains three new tracks, including a further single, "Hollywood", which was co-written by Bublé and Canadian songwriter Robert G. Scott. The album also includes live versions of songs from the album's previous release.[16] In Europe, the re-release comes in the form of a bonus disc included with the original version of the album, whereas in America, the special edition was released in the form of an EP, entitled Hollywood: The Deluxe EP.[18] A special edition of the album, including a bonus remix CD, making-of DVD and 32 page photo album, was made available only through Bublé's official online store.

Crazy Love received generally positive reviews from music critics upon its release. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 given to reviews from mainstream critics, the album received an average score of 75, which indicates "generally favorable reviews".[19] Matt Collar of Allmusic gave the album four out of five stars and commended the album for being Bublé's "most stylistically wide-ranging album", adding that it is also "his brightest, poppiest, and most fun [album]".[21] Gary Graff of Billboard commended the album's "curveballs", noting that they gave "the album some additional cheek".[23] Graff concluded the review, writing "Crazy Love is another step in Bublé's creation of his own kind of songbook, and there's nothing necessarily crazy about that."[23] Stephen Holden of The New York Times complimented Bublé for being "appreciative of the past but not reverential" and also noted that "he juxtaposes pre-rock, rock and soul classics without favoring one style over another."[27] Holden concluded the review with "What the creators imparted with an edge of warning, Mr. Bublé turns into a whoop-it-up celebration of nightlife and the mating game, in which the thrill and excitement are worth the risks."[27]

Mikael Wood of Entertainment Weekly gave Crazy Love a B, saying that "the neo-Rat Pack crooner makes a few too many soft-rock concessions on his new studio disc."[26] Despite this, Wood also stated that "there's no denying the sexy-jerk swagger Bublé brings".[26] Sarah Rodman of The Boston Globe claimed that the album's strength came from "Bublé's swagger, since the arrangements tend to favor the predictable, from swinging orchestras to cocktail piano fizz."[25] However, Rodman also noted that "the Canadian singer knows his way around the retro-soul movement as well as the Rat Pack era".[25] Music critic Adrian Edwards of BBC gave a positive review of the album, claiming that "each song on this flamboyant new CD thrills the ear as though it were a live performance" and further noted that "This wonderful album would surely have been voted 'ring-a-ding-ding' by Frank and Dean!"[22] Chris Barton of the Los Angeles Times gave the album two out of four stars, stating that "its mix of brassy standards and tastefully done originals from the world of jazz and pop surely will give those familiar with Bublé's work pretty much exactly what they want."[28] He went on to say that "The album's polished, middle-of-the-road approach isn't exactly for everyone, but its agreeable heart doesn't hit any sour notes, either."[28] Kit O'Toole of Blogcritics gave a favorable review of the album, noting that "Crazy Love also marks Bublé's welcome attempt to expand his range, mostly to positive effect" and further noted that the album "contains both standards and modern songs, proving that Bublé can handle both with ease."[24] Charlie Christenson of About.com gave the album two out of five stars, noting that "Bublé stomps all over the fine line between jazz and pop, with mixed results."[20] Despite this, Christenson complimented Bublé for having "good timing, a sense of the lyric, and spot-on intonation."[20] Greg Brian of Yahoo! Voices gave a positive review of the album, stating that "Bublé's nonpareil pop vocal ability and natural styling helps sell every song he sings", and also concluded that his musical formula will "successfully please enough people to keep anticipation of his ensuing albums at the forefront of many minds for the next 50 years."[29]

Apart from its critical and commercial success, Crazy Love received a number of awards and nominations. In 2010, the album won a Juno Award for Album of the Year and Pop Album of the Year, while "Haven't Met You Yet" won an award for Single of the Year.[30] Bob Rock, one of the album producers, won the Jack Richardson Producer of the Year Award for producing "Haven't Met You Yet" and "Baby (You've Got What It Takes)",[30] beating David Foster who produced "Cry Me a River" and "All of Me".[31] At the 53rd Grammy Awards, the album won a Grammy Award for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album.[32] "Haven't Met You Yet" was also nominated for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance,[33] but lost to "Just the Way You Are" by Bruno Mars.[32]
