I've heard this album about few hours after uploading into web..I have to say, I was expecting sth in retro style and I love it!

What's more, this is the only "LP" of Geri I listen at all everytime (now it's 10th or 11th time) :) I really enjoy it, it's hard to define which track is my favourite :)
"Humanity" is great, "Deep Down" is so 'New Religion' soundind what I love, "Without love" also beautfilul (her voice is touching and melody is very patient - sounds like music for stretching after aerobics). "Phenomenal Woman" in studio version is such a surprise. "Miracles" makes me full of hope, "I'm older now".... well any of the tracks is bad in my opinion

Very glad of the album. After more than 20 listens:

Love and Light - 10/10 - It's a grower and powerful song. It should have been of the singles chosen.

Humanity - 8.5/10 - Good song but I find the melody is too childish (the part just after the chorus)

Man On The Mountain - 9/10 - I do not know why but there is something in the song that brings my attention. I like the whole story and how the song develops.

Beautiful Life - 9/10 - Great ballad. I am in love with the bridge part. Potential single.

Deep Down - 9/10 - "Happy" vibe. The song suits her voice totally. I must confess it was one of my favorites at first listen. Potential last album's single.

If You Love Someone - 8/10 - Great ballad again but too deep to be a single.

Miracles - 10/10 - One of my favorites songs. The rythm and the melody cheers me up. IMO it's a potential single.

Phenomenal Woman - 7/10 - I like the message but it is not my cup of tea.

Without Love - 10/10 - Wow the first time I listen the song I couldn't believe how Geri has improved. It first remind me Abba, I wonder why. It should definitely be one of the album's single.

Sheriff - 9.5/10 - Very ginger's song :) I love how she finishes the bridge.

I've Got a Name - 7/10 - Great voice but it is the only song in the album that bores me sometimes.

I am Older Now - 9.5/10 - Wonderful mature song. I feel this is one of the most personal songs of the album.

Get Involved - 9.5/10 - Reminds me a little bit to a Lady Gaga's song. I like a lot the chorus, specially the spanish part (thanks Geri for that wink). However the last spanish part sounds like a bad paste and she should have tried to pronounce it better. Single.

Half Of Me - 8/10 - I know this song has a lot of haters but I like it.

Thank God! I don´t have to scrobble the song 13 times with the right title now :D

+ I checked last.fm and 55 people have scrobbled it as that. Only 9 people have scrobbled it as "I Am Older Now".
And "I´m Older Now" is what she sings in the song. :)

I think that 'Man On The Mountain' is a fun name for the album and certainly suits the record, although that song is my least favorite.
I don't mean that to sound negative as I genuinely love this album.

It was nice of her to fix the vocals in If You Love Someone before the leak though :)

'If You Love Someone' went from the worst preview of all to one of my favorites from the album. Not only the better voice, but also its production changed for the better.

Some of the 2/10's are dated, generic Duffy-esque "New Religion"/"Getting Better" hybrids. No one wants to hear that.

The 2/10 ballads are just cringe-worthy and is the main reason why her credibility as an artist is the way it is. She can do better.


I disagree! Beautiful Life is absolutely brilliant, and Geri sounds like an angel on it.

Let's not get carried away, they're songs, not a miracle.

Ha, I didn't even realise it was that song. I remember that clip and thinking "thank God it didn't make the album".

Yeah I agree. The album has a handful of fabulous songs, the rest are all a bit samey.

I wondered this. Do we think it could be Christian?

I think it's Eliot Kennedy.


I was even beginning to think it's Geri's voice, just pitched, but I could be wrong...

Found it and listened. I'm sorry but this is not good music,. That one song Love is Light or whatever is very good, I agree with that. The rest is unevolved. She sounds the same she did 2 albums ago 1 album ago. No movement ahead in my option. I give up Geri. It's not even enjoyable to listen to. I think she's right to have not released it and the leak will die away.

I don't know what Geri is meant to do. She has such great energy when it works but alas I do not think music is her forte though I loved Schizophonic and a handful of songs on other albums. Sorry.

A lot of people think that to move ahead is something that all singers/artist must do. I don't think so.
This is just a pop album. As simple as that. There is no need for complicated lyrics or deep meaning in the songs. It is just music to enjoy.
I understand that while growing we all change and our tastes also vary so it is ok if you liked Schizo but don't like MITM, but from all solo spices Geri is the one that has sticked the most to her initial outcome (I'd even say that to the original Spice Girls sound) so if it was ok to release something like Shizo in 1999 it is also ok to do it now.
would that mean that she will aproach to a smaller audience because this kind of music is not current? at this point, who cares?

I also think the same about Song For Her. At first it might sound old, dated or with a less worked production, but actually the song is what a spice girls song has to be. The same goes to Headlines, you can listen to it now and it fits perfectly in the Greatest Hits.

By the way do not take this as an attack. I'm just showing my point of view that it is the complete opposite to yours

I do think MOTM sounds like a totally different record. Not something she's done before...
