I strongly disagree that the bonus tracks are a strong addition to an album. From my years of experience in buying import CD's from Japan and other countries, I have found that basically 85-90% of the time, the track doesn't lend anything strength-wise to an album. And if the song is generally a good strong track, STYLISTICALLY it might not blend with the rest of the album, so basically I don't bother with imports anymore unless there's at least 2 bonus tracks and I have heard from a reliable source that it is worth the extra cash. Too many times I have been disappointed from this cash-cow trend.
