Giveaway: Michael Bolton's "One World, One Love" CD

When I hear the name Michael Bolton, I automatically think of the movie Office Space. I can't help it. Poor Michael Bolton is the butt of a lot of jokes in that movie.. but it's a good flick. So when I was asked to review a complimentary copy of Bolton's latest CD, One World, One Love, I didn't know what to expect. (The CD was provided to me by Universal because I am a member of Music Moms).
Michael Bolton has definitely made an effort to change with the times. Gone is the hair. The cover of his new CD shows a pretty attractive guy... I don't remember him looking like that. His music, in my opinion, is changing, too. Sure, he still sings of love and heartbreak, but it's not all power ballads. It's a fairly upbeat play list.
I was most excited to hear his collaboration with Lady Gaga. Michael Bolton and Lady Gaga? Not exactly two artists I would think of pairing together. They co-wrote "Murder My Heart" and Gaga provides back up on the track, too. I like it. It's a love song, but a different spin on romance than you would expect Bolton to take.
Most of the songs on the disc are co-written by Bolton. I have to admit, though, it's two covers that I really enjoy. Bolton tackles Terence Trent D'Arby's hit "Sign Your Name." When I heard the beginning of the song, I knew that I knew the song, but I couldn't put my finger on it until the chorus. He definitely gives it his own flavor. Bolton also covers Van Morrison's "Crazy Love," one of my favorite songs ever, and I wasn't disappointed.
I'm not a fan of the entire disc. Some of the songs seem interchangeable. Overall, though, it's quite enjoyable.

It's an oldie, but a goodie...our favorite love song is "Wonderful Tonight" by Eric Clapton. :)
