Not Re-Mastered: Marketing Gimic

"I give this one star, not because of the music, but because of the way this CD is misleadingly titled on amazon.com and because of Cirque's recently poor marketing gimics. This item is misleadingly titled "re-mastered" edition by amazon.com. A representative told me that this is not re-mastered. Before you buy this item, you should deffinately know that it is a cardboard pocket with the CD loosley placed inside. Just stick with buying the original AlegriA CD. This should be called " Cirque du Soleil, Alegria (eco-friendly, carboard pocket cover edition). Cirque's attempt at being eco-friendly negatively affects the consumer because the CD is not protected by this flimsy, cardboard pocket forcing the consumer to purchase a regular plastic cover to protect hers or his CD in order for it to last a long time. And I'm pretty sure people want their products to last a long time when they spend their hard-earned money on it. A big DUH to Cirque. This is Cirque's way of trying to make the consumer spend $20.00 on a CD with a title that makes the consumer think she or he is getting more for hers or his money when in fact they are getting less!!!"
