I didn't want to wait an extra 7 weeks to buy the album in the UK so I pre-ordered the CD from Amazon.com and paid for expedited postage. I could have bought the MP3 download, but still like to have a CD. It was well worth it. The UK version has 4 extra tracks, but these are from Carrie's previous albums, which I already have, so I'm not missing those by buying the US version. Blown Away has hardly been out of the CD player in the car in the 4 weeks or so that I have had it, and the family love it too. The first three tracks seem to stand out, being a bit more pop/rock and maybe these might get her some more airplay in UK and a bit more notice. At the moment Carrie is only playing one date in UK, in June, but hopefully she'll tour at some point. Best album I've bought in a long while.
