Spirit - U.S. Version

Leona Lewis' debut album, Spirit, gets its U.S. release next week, hot on the heels of her recent #1 hit, "Bleeding Love." The U.S. version is a little different than the original: there are only 13 tracks instead of 14. Gone are Leona's first #1 hit, the remake of Kelly Clarkson's "A Moment Llike This." This is an expected omission. Also missing are "The Best You Never Had" (relegated to an iTunes exclusive) and "Homeless," (just gone) the latter of which is particularly a surprise, since it's a good song. Instead there's the more upbeat and swinging "Forgive Me," which isn't bad, and "Misses Glass," which is also more uptempo than what it replaces, but not as good.
