UK/Japan Deluxe Edition Is the Best Buy 4 This Album
on December 22, 2008
I bought this album from an independent seller, and my copy is the UK deluxe edition. For CD, the UK release has three more tracks than the US release: "Lady Marmalade", "Nobody Wants to Be Lonely" and "The Voice Within".
To me, "Lady Marmalade" is the only thing that makes the UK release special, as I would never buy a CD single, this is the only Christina album in which I can have that song. As for "Nobody Wants to Be Lonely", I'm also a Ricky Martin fan, that song is also included in the US release of his latest greatest hits album. But if you're not a Ricky Martin fan, and you don't like buying CD single either, this is also the only Christina album that contains that song.
About the 4 new recordings, I love 3 of them: "Keeps Gettin' Better", "Dynamite" and "Genie 2.0", but as they are all available in the standard US release, so they're not that special for this particular version.
the big flaw of this album is the missing singles like "Reflection" and "Can't Hold Us Down". I even think they should have removed "Nobody Wants to Be Lonely", for it's actually a Ricky Martin song, to include those two classics.
As for the DVD, it's same with the DVD from the US deluxe edition that is exclusively available at Target.
So just consider before your purchase, see if you really want it. For me, UK/Japan Deluxe Edition is the best buy.
