The only thing that really differences this album from her previous stuff is the folk/western production of some songs and the fact that the ballads are more stripped down. The rest sounds just like regular Geri Halliwell (quality) songs. This album sounds exactly like a progression from 'Passion'.
If this was the "direction-changing" sound Geri talked about, then I guess the rejected Absolute songs must have been on the same vibe as Ride It, Bag It Up, It's Raining Men and such, or maybe that album was a real change indeed with more electro pop stuff and when Geri thought she was changing direction she was actually going back to her roots.
