モーニング娘。Sexy 8 Beat regular edition.

The other item I bought today was Momusu's regular edition of their album "Sexy 8 Beat." I already own the limited edition of this album so you may wonder why I bought the regular edition. There's a posting and conversation about these 2 different editions on Tom's site (helloblog.co.uk) and it got me thinking. While I do like the limited edition's cover better than the regular edition's I too was curious about the photos in the booklet and whether a different photo shoot is in there with the colored outfits instead of the black ones. This was a pure impulse buy as I don't really need this edition but it turned out to be well worth it. It was also important that they had the first pressing of the regular edition otherwise I wouldn't have bought it. The regular edition first press comes with 2 photo cards. One features a group shot while the other is a Mitsii card. The photos in the booklet are different from the limited edition's and I think they're actually better than the ones in the limited edition. With the 2 photo cards as extras in a way I actually think that the regular edition is better than the limited edition as the dvd which comes with the limited edition contains a pv version which should have been included with the pv dvd single and the 2 live performances could have easily been included on the concert dvd as an extra there. I hope that H!P goes back to the special packaging and extras when it comes to their album releases as the extra dvd doesn't seem to be as special. I now own both editions and I'm glad that I bought the regular one today. I put the booklet photos in the order of my favorite members below. 🙂

    Thanks, for posting the pictures, I've been wondering about htis for ages. It is truly one of the oddest album releases, it does look like the first press regular edition is better than the limited edition release. The two photo cards look great and the booklet photos look a hell of a lot better as well. You said exactly what I was thinking about the DVD extra, it really asn't that special and it certainly feels that the clips should have been included with other products and not this release. It's a shame but from reading CDJapan it would seem that GAM's album release will be similar to this, it's also got me thinking as to whether I should just by the first press regular edition. The limited release comes with an alternative version of the LuLuLu PV and a making of, whilst the regular one comes with a couple of photo cards. I'm not to sure what the making of footage is going to be, as on looking at the SIngle V release of LuLuLu that to comes with making of footage…perhaps it's footage of the photo shoot for the album shoot?

    Argh!!! I still need to receive my copy of the two ltd versions…- Oew, they look great…I can't choose between the two before actually holding 'm :)And they indeed need to put something more special in the Limited editions, DVD's are cool though it's only a one-time-only-watch kinda thing for me.

  3. Hmmm…Paul, H!P wants you to buy both editions. LOL. That's really rough that they release more than one version of the album. You got me wondering what the making of footage that's included with the limited GAM album will be of since there's also a dvd pv single which also includes making of footage.
