The good, the bad and the ugly,
This review is from: I Am...Sasha Fierce (Audio CD)
The Good: For the person whose been hiding under a rock and doesn't already have "I am Sasha Fierce", congrats. Now you can own a 18 track edition that includes the upbeat Poison (another Sweet Dreams style of a song)plus the remix of Video Phone featuring Lady Gaga.. This cd is Beyonce's best album to date since leaving Destiny's Child and going solo
The Bad: Why another release or re-release. I strongly resent how record companies seem to produce 10 different versions of the same cd in an effort to maximize profits at the expense of hard-working fans. I already owned the previous Deluxe version with the then bonus 4 tracks. So I had to buy this version just for 2 songs.
The UGLY: Here's the bitter rub. This isn't even the best version. In Europe and Asia, Beyonce's Platinum Edition features 20 songs and a bonus cd of all her videos to-date for practically the same price. Missing on this US and Canadian only version are the amazing ballads: Save the Hero, Why Don't You Love me and Honestly.
The Ultimate version could have been a two cd compilation including the 3 songs on the Euro / Asian version plus the 2 featured on the North American version and then some remixes from Above and Beyonce.
And record companies wonder why cd sales are declining?!!

I hear bit-torrent can help you avoid being repeatedly cheated by the record companies.

Just thought I would pipe in here. I'm in the UK and bought this not knowing (at the time) that it included a DVD. When I found out I thought it was great. After finally pulling it out of the case this morning I couldn't believe it...it is in NTSC format rather than PAL! So they marketed this brilliant CD/DVD combo only outside of the US, but then used the US format. Unbelievable. To be fair, I just happen to be able to play it on my computer (it's brilliant), but still...
I was going to buy it from Amazon for my daughter in the US, but I think I'll buy one here and let her have the better deal!

Too many record labels never get tired of screwing the consumer. Will someone please hide the *&$#! Viagara?
