I was extremely happy when I saw that Beautiful Eyes had been re released. Before that I had seriously considered paying up to US$60 for this on eBay, just because I love Taylor so much and wanted to have this so bad lol.
And about the set itself:
In three words, I love it. The CD is a little too short, 19 minutes, but it does have great material. The title track, Beautiful Eyes, is amazing, it's so much like the music from her debut album (which came 2 years before this one was originally released); I think country fans will be pleased to hear this. "I Heart ?" is also a previously unreleased track, and though it's not as good as "Beautiful...", it's still very nice to hear, Taylor's sweet voice really stands out in this one. And as for the rest of the tracks, the radio edit of "Picture To Burn" has the original lyrics "...that's fine I'll tell mine you're gay" replaced by "...that's fine you won't mind if I say", and that's pretty much the only difference. But it's still cool to have both versions officially released.
And the DVD is just awesome. Stand outs are the "On The Set with Taylor Swift" special of the making of the "Picture To Burn" video and the 14-minute long "GAC New Artist Interview", in which Taylor talks about being nominated for three ACM Awards (or CMA, those two confuse me, sorry, I'm not from the US so I'm not really familiar with those awards :]), and friendship, her relationship with her fans, her hopes, and some random questions about her favorite stuff and what she'd be doing if she weren't a performer. Taylor was 18 at the time of this interview, it's beautiful to see how much she's accomplished since :)
Also, there isn't a booklet. It's a fold-out poster but the lyrics to all the songs on the CD are printed on the back :)
The only thing I'm not a big fan of is the DVD menus. Just like the DVD from the "Taylor Swift (Deluxe Limited Edition)" album, it's a little too simple :) but still, it's not an issue, but if it was a little more interactive or visually appealing, it would have been even more amazing.
At US$7 at Walmart, I think anyone SHOULD buy it. Since I had to order it from the US and had it shipped to Chile (where I live) I ended up paying US$26, and it definitely was money well spent. Any country fan will appreciate this music, as it is from before Taylor started sounding a little more "pop", which some people didn't like.
Sooo go and get a copy, you definitely won't regret it. Who knows, maybe in a month or two it will go out of print again and it'll be even harder to find it!
