REVIEW

Michael Buble puts the power of positive thinking to work on his sixth studio album, "To Be Loved" (Reprise), with great results. It's not just the peppy breakup song "It's a Beautiful Day," where Buble's happiness shines through to make its mark, though it's certainly the most clever example. What makes "To Be Loved" so impressive is the way his own songs sound so right next to his reworking of the Bee Gees' "To Love Somebody" into an R&B ballad, or where he shows off some surprising soul on the Jackson Five's "Who's Lovin' You." The result is Buble's best album yet -- confident, stylish and, yes, upbeat.
