Two years after Leona Lewis first auditioned for X Factor, she's still going strong - proving that the TV show, for her at least, is more than just a mindless talent contest whose winners drop off the face of the Earth when the following year's show comes around...

The Deluxe Edition of her debut album Spirit includes quite a lot of additional content for fans to get excited about. This 2-disc collection includes the original album with three bonus tracks ('Forgive Me', 'Misses Glass' and her new single 'Run') as well as a bonus DVD that includes six of her music videos. PC users can also stay up to date with the latest news on Lewis by subscribing (for free) to the Opendisc on-screen forum.

To be honest unless you really want the DVD material, it's not really worth purchasing this CD again if you already own it. The bonus tracks are not great (which is probably why they were left off the first release. Although 'Run' is her new single, I found it a little dry.

The DVD content is pretty impressive. You get DVD videos for 'Bleeding Love' (UK and American versions), 'Better in Time', 'Footprints in the Sand', 'Forgive Me' and 'A Moment Like This'.

Lewis's fans will no doubt purchase this even if they own the original release of the album. If you don't already own this album then it's well worth picking up in this revamped edition.
