"Don't expect a full CD of songs by this new artist, a two-hit wonder. Goodbye, My Lover Part one is all you get, albeit a long version."
Terribly Disappointed and I felt ripped off!~!~!

"Although I enjoyed the full CD of James Blunt's "Back To Bedlam", when I saw another new CD for $3.50+ + $5.00 for shipping I figured a deal was at hand!...until I opened it and there were two versions of "You're Beautiful" (one copied from radio and one James sung with an Acoustic guitar, there was one added song, but by then I wanted to send this $9.00 debacle back to where-ever it came from. I saw no warning that the CD contained only two songs alike and one different one.It reminded me of the old Extended plays 45's that we got 3-4 songs on..and they were rippoffs that did NOT last long either!

"Have you ever lost anyone? A friend, a relative, a partner or spouse? To time, to distance, to...life?
There is nothing as agonizing in life as to lose someone who is a part of you. Regardless of which of the above broad categories it fits, the feeling is that of some miserly sprite cracking open your ribs, tossing out your lungs as if they were carburetors and cutting a jagged edge through your heart, only to thrust a dirty blade in your sternum and riding it down past your navel, letting all that is within to slosh about at your feet as it will.
If you haven't experienced this sort of loss, this song is a fair enough introduction; I have - twice, and to "life" - and the emotion that Blunt pushes out with his music and emotes with his voice captures it majestically. I can't listen to this song without that dirty blade finding its way back up to my heart.
As gruesome and depressing as this may sound, this song was by far my favorite of 2006."
