When Leona Lewis released her debut album Spirit in the U.S. in April 2008, she and her mentors Simon Cowell and Clive Davis took the world by storm and set off an unstoppable chain of record-breaking events that culminated in the newcomer becoming 2008’s best-selling new artist of the year worldwide.

Spirit was already a phenomenon in Lewis’ native U.K. (having entered the ... Read more in Amazon's Leona Lewis Store

Customer Reviews

It's a great deluxe edition which includes a DVD.
Susan Walter
No other performer does it quite this way, which is one of the things I like about Leona - she transforms the song to make it uniquely hers.
Michael
Have loved Leona from the first time I saw her perform.

I don't know why a lot of CDs of British artists are always released later in the United States, but obviously this deluxe edition of Leona Lewis' Spirit is released late for a reason.

For the DVD, the US version contains one more music video "Run" and a live performance of "I Will Be" that are not included in the international version, for the release of the international version is earlier than that of the "Run" video. Nevertheless, "The Making of the Video Forgive Me" is not available in the US version, but as this is a music product, I guess more music videos are better.

For the CD, they used the original revised US track list for the standard part, but they changed "Better in Time" and "Footprints in the Sand" into single mixes. Both of the single mixes are quite different from the album versions. For example, in "Better in Time", the piano intro was extended, and the main melody only came in for the chorus, while in the album version, the main melody came in as soon as Lewis started to sing. The difference of the versions of "Footprints in the Sand" is even more evident. Among the four bonus tracks, three of them are unique compared with the international version. "Myself", which is a duet between Lewis and Novel, is exclusive in this US release; "Run", which is an album version in the international release, is also a single mix in the US release; "Bleeding Love (Remix)", which is originally an iTune bonus track for the first US edition, is finally available as a shorter version on physical CDs.

Deluxe Editions of CDs are always about making money, but this CD has six different tracks compared with the original US release, besides it came with a DVD. In addition, as I'm a buyer from China, who's now studying in the US, my copy of the first edition is the international version, which means it does not even have "Misses Glass" and the single "Forgive Me". Therefore, if you like Leona Lewis, buying this new edition is not so bad a choice.

I don't think there's anything new I can add to this review that people don't already know. It is an amazing album filled with TONS of amazingly written songs. Usually a CD album these days have about 20-30% hit songs in them, but "Spirit", in my personal opinion, has about 70%+ hit songs that I can just listen to over and over again. All of the songs are very unique and are like a treasure on their own. THAT with Leona's incredible vocal - just blows my mind. She is really good on expressing emotions through her voice and I believe she will definitely touch your heart.

The additional "Run" is a very beautiful song. I love the original Snow Patrol version, but Leona definitely makes it her own. It is a very emotional song with a message that will surely "light" you up. I think it's worth the money to buy the Deluxe version JUST for this song alone.

I don't think words can explain how amazing Leona Lewis is. You HAVE to listen to her to understand. If you haven't bought her original "Spirit" already, BUY THIS ONE! The bonus track "Run" will be worth it! If you don't believe me, go to YouTube and watch her live performance singing "Run" at the X Factor and I assure you, you will fall in love with her. But if you've already bought the original "Spirit", then maybe you want to just get "Run" separately somewhere else. Unless you're a Leona FAN, then you might also want the bonus videos & photos in the Deluxe Version.

My personal favorite tracks: Bleeding Love, I Will Be, Here I Am, Footprints in the Sand, A Moment Like This, Run

If you want my opinions about Leona Lewis's vocals or songs from her first album you can find them on my review for her originally released Spirit CD, this review is just for the additional tracks and the DVD from her deluxe edition of Spirit.

I'm a Leona Lewis fan, that's for sure, so that may be why her deluxe edition for her first album Spirit is getting a flat out five star rating. But I do have some reasons for the given rating. But before I discuss the three new songs on this CD, I'd like to talk about the changes for her two songs "Better in Time" and "Footprints in the Sand." For the deluxe edition the two original recordings of these songs have been replaced with the single mixes. To my surprise, I actually liked the single mix for "Better in Time" more than the original, the piano intro is extended and I thought it sounded lovely. In my opinion the single mix could have been even better if it was just a piano ballad, but it is a great mix nonetheless. Also included is a remix created by Jason Nevins for Leona Lewis's hit "Bleeding Love." The two single mixes from her first album are the only changes, besides the "Bleeding Love" remix but that's an additional track, now let's discuss the three new songs on her deluxe edition! The first new song is "Myself" and is a duet with Novel. Novel has a unique voice, and it sounds very nice to say the least. The next song "Run" is probably reason alone to buy this CD. It's a strange enchanting song and I absolutely loved it. The last new song on this CD is "Forgiveness" and I absolutely LOVED this track. I haven't heard a song like this from Leona before, it just makes me smile.
