Mel is certainly making her money out of her fans this time around. When you think most hardcore fans will buy the album, deluxe and both CD singles, they will only have 12 original songs to show for it for about £40 when you include postage.

I preordered the limited edition, but this standart edition will have to wait a few months. I'll buy it cheap, 20€ for a regular cd is too much.

BI at least had a bonus DVD with the videos.

I expected the first disc to be the same and a second disc with at least five new songs and remixes.

Makes me wish I hadn't bought the cd to buy this version of her, because it's by far the best looking spice related release (makes the GH packaging look like a cheap magazine release) but for one new song, I'm not gonna buy. Sorry.


Nope, that was the Portuguesse re-edition, also the one sold in Singapour. The German edition only featured FDOML as new content. Well, the cover art also changed.

Plus, while we celebrated the several editions of Beautiful Intentions, now we complain? We're getting a deluxe packaging, guys!

And, by the mockups, it looks better than any of the Beautiful Intentions editions.


I did miss that. I take back my disappointed comment.

You guys seem to forget that this deluxe edition, so far, is a GSA exclusive. Which (as lame as the content might look to us) means those in those territories purchasing this record haven't had the chance to own those remixes and the b-side yet (legally). Unless, of course, they're hard die fans that bought the physical singles from her store. But for the casual fans and non-fans, the whole thing is brand new content.

Seeing it from that perspective, what bothers me is 'One Minute' being all alone at the end of the 2nd disc. They should've made it a regular track on the standard edition.

Now, as a regular fan, it bothers me a lot that 'One Minute' seems to be, still, a physical or digital GSA exclusive. Same as 'Hold On' seems to be a GSA exclusive so far too. It's a very 2006-like move when nowadays, everything is made available digitally worldwide, even if it's not at the same time.

^ Ideally I'd have liked One Minute to be included as a main album track too, it looks rather random after live tracks & remixes on the second disc. That's just a minor quibble anyway; when it comes to how I organise it on iTunes I'll probably retain One Minute within the 'Dear Life - Single' section anyway. :cool:

The deluxe looks very nice, I do like a digipak format :D. The polaroids are a nice little bonus. Of course I wish there was more than one new song, but never mind. *Pre-orders* :p

Ordered it via Amazon.de :D Expected delivery date... my 29th birthday (Feb 23rd). :angel:

Have any of you heard of Alex Francis? I wonder whether he could end up being a support artist for her shows.

I'm not a fan of 'mixed' bonus discs at all.

I'd personally have done the following:

Disc One:
1 Dear Life
2 Escalator
3 Anymore
4 Something for the Fire
5 Version of Me
6 Numb (Sons of Sonix Extended Mix)
7 Room for Love
8 Unravelling
9 Loving You Better
10 Our History
11 Blame
12 Hold On (feat. Alex Francis)
13 One Minute
14 *another new track*
15 Dear Life (Acoustic)


Disc Two: Under The Bridge
1 Anymore
2 Room For Love
3 Think About It
4 Something For The Fire
5 Dear Life
6 Loving You Better
7 Never Be The Same Again
8. Version Of Me
9 Next Best Superstar
10 I Turn To You

I didn't say it was the German version mate.

Beautiful Intentions was released in Portugal one whole year after it was released in the UK, and it still did better there, despite the big time gap. If she does promotion and gets airplay then anything is possible.

Let's see what happens next month. ;)

Confused:

I'm not a collector or anything, so is there any benefit to me attempting to buy this deluxe release? I own VOM and the released singles already, and I don't care much about remixes. Is there anything else included - special/different pictures, videos, or anything??

Also, just to clarify - this is technically released only in Germany?
