When it comes to male voices I love, I have a type...

I knew Seth MacFarlane was a fairly good singer, because I used to watch and not hate Family Guy back in the day. I didn't quite realise how much I'd love an album from him, until taurenova mentioned him being at the Proms the other day.

Enter Music is Better Than Words.

It is so fucking mellow, it's melting me down. His voice is like a warm blanket I never want to let go of, because it's deliciously comforting and fluffy. And then he busts out these huge notes and I am enraptured anew.

The songs are charming choices; standards that haven't been sung to death. It's all played straight, in the awesome way. Wow. I really enjoy it for what it is, even though I spent the first listen half expecting a bonus track of more MacFarlane typical fare. If you're like me and unabashedly adore Bublé, you might like this too.
