Extremely limited International Tour Edition features exclusive artwork, a bonus track ('Somebody To Love') and a bonus CD featuring eight rarities and live tracks: 'Let My Hair Down', 'Undercover Runaway', 'Te Busque' (Spanish Version featuring Juanes), 'No Hay Igual' (featuring Calle 13), 'All Good Things (Come To An End)' (featuring Reamonn's Rea Garver) and live versions of 'Crazy', 'Maneater' and 'Promiscuous'. The Canadian singer-songwriter marks a stark change in direction away from the Folk-inflected Pop of her first two outings. On this release, she collaborates with Hip Hop/R&B producer Timbaland, and the result is a set of raw Electro-Funk, with Furtado laying down some of her most risqu and explicit lyrics to date. Featuring guest vocals from Coldplay's Chris Martin, Latin American megastar Juanes and Timbaland himself. . Universal. 2007.

Second off I did not pay 33.99 for this cd, I got it for 13.99 at zellers.
Yes, the special edition at zellers for 13.99.
And the cd is not in a blue case, the cd is in a slip in case, which is the blue one. But when you slip the cd out of the cover its the normal red one.
Ok well heres my review.
I was never to fond of Nelly until I heard Maneater. Even though I own both of her past disks. I never really liked her first cd 2 much, and I really disliked the 2nd. But then something happend to our Nelly. She came back with this never before heard sound. I bought Loose the same day I heard Maneater. I loved the cd alot.
Anyways I was walking through the cd section at Zellers when I saw this disk. I looked at the price. 13.99. I really didn't even think about it for a second. I tokk 1 look at the back, and next thing I knew I was at the checkout. This re-made version of Loose contains 4 new songs.
-Let my hair donw
-Somebody to love
And 2 remixes
-All good things
-No Hay Igual
And 3 live songs.
-Crazy (a slower version, but does it better then Knarles Barkley)
Overall Im very glad to have bought this disk. I wouldn't pay 33 bucks for it, but if you ever come across it in a store for cheaper. Pick it up. Cause its Limited Edition.
Anyways, I love the disk, Love the bonus songs and remixes.
Live songs are great. So my review is 4.5/5.
And it deserves it!
I do have the original loose album that came with the extra CD which is the video for MANEATER!!!! But when i saw she came out with a couple if different versions of the CD i flipped out!!!!! I just recently purchased the international version that has awesome remixes on it and extra songs, and then i found out that there was a summer edition that came out in 2007 with extra songs....and songs in SPANISH. Which is a language that i understand so im soooooo happy that she is so versitile! Ok time to start with the track listing. As of 9-16-08 Loose has sold globally a whopping 9.5 million world wide and has gone gold and platinum in 29 countries which is awesome. #1 afraid---good song 8.5-10
#2 Maneater -10outof10...1st #1This song is awesome...dance to, get ready to go out.just all around a perfect song...and is the FASTEST SELLING SINGLE from Loose Nelly went on to win BIGGEST POP/ROCK SONG FOR MANEATER.

#10 IN GODS HANDS-9.5 great song. but too slow to be released in summer 08....made it to 15 on billboard.
#11 Wait for you...10.00 needs to be the next single!
#12 ALL GOOD THINGS...10.00 which was the 5th US Single for her to HIT #1 and she went on to win awards for album of the year....song of the year, most addictive track for ALL GOOD THINGS... 2 SINGLES LEFT...LETS GET THEM OUT!
Afraid - 7/10 Well, there was SOME depth...
Maneater - 8/10 (The Remix is much better)
Promiscuous (Feat. Timbaland) - 10/10 THE summer jam of 2006; it was EVERYWHERE, and for good reason! It was also the first single from the album.
Glow - 6.5/10 Bouncy, but not totally necessary.
Showtime - 8.5/10 Big improvement from Glow. Nice production, and quite interesting.
No Hay Igual - 2/10 Err...First off, I'm not Spanish/Canadian. This is one of the worst worst WORST songs EVER! Boo, Nelly. Boo!!
Te Busque - 7.75/10 Nice beat. I like the lyrics, but not the Spanish ones; I don't understand them. :(
Say It Right - 8/10 This song doesn't make much sense. Seriously! But the beat is very awesome. Timbaland produced yet another hit. I believe this was Nelly's second single and it did well.
Do It - 9/10 Lovely. This is the 4th, and probably the last single from Loose. It's catchy and I like the fun, but true lyrics. Nelly is awesome. But I heard this beat was "stolen". If it's true, then shame on ya, Timbo. But I still love him as a producer!!
In God's Hands - 7.5/10 Beautiful vibe to this song, the production. It feels kinda like "The Grass Is Green Part. 2" but with a different message.
Wait For You - 10/10 Yet again, a great, GREAT beat. Surprisingly surpasses Do It. Not in lyrics, but the beat. Dangerously catchy!! It has a vibe of someone else - some other artist. Maybe Keyshia Cole. I dunno. Anyway it's upbeat and in your face like we have currently come to expect with the Nelly as of late. Like Ashanti would say, "This beat is BANANAS!"
All Good Things (Come To An End) - 8.5/10 Am I tired of all the crazy beats by now? Nope. And this song continues that trend. The beat here is catchy. 3rd single. Don't know how it did. Reasonably well, I suppose.
Te Busque (Spanish Version) 7/10 - You all know that I can't stand a song in all Spanish, but I'll rated this on the sounds. Decent lyrics, but this song as well as the original don't necessarily fit with the other upbeat tracks.
The only track I didn't enjoy at all was No Hay Igual. It's one of the most annoying tracks ever. All she says is, "No Hay Igual", really fast. It'll make you puke. But that was the only setback here.
105.269230769231/13 = 93.2884615= 4.6 stars.
I can't wait for the next album!!
