As much as I like it, most of the album is very been there done that.


Love & Light - Feel The Fear
Humanity - Original
Man On The Mountain - Original with Strength Of A Woman influences
Beautiful Life - Loving Me Back To Life
Deep Down - New Religion
If You Love Someone - True Love Never Dies
Miracles - Don't Call Me Baby
Phenomenal Woman - So I Give Up On Love
Without Love - Original
Sheriff - Let Me Love You
I've Got A Name - Cover
I'm Older Now - I Was Made That Way
Get Involved - Mi Chico Latino

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.

Oh, I meant that...

I know lyrics, themes may make it similar to previous. But I meant the produciton. It's quite different so it truly gives u a feeling that you're listening to something different.

For me, I heard it and was like: WOW, this doesn't sound like a Geri album (I do like it, though)

I don't see how Phenomenal Woman is anything like the awful So I Give Up on Love. If anything it's more like Bag It Up.

I'm actually very glad this leaked... The only 2 songs I like, I actually really LOVE are Humanity and one the best songs of Geri's is "Man on the Mountain" thus far to date. I was hoping for some tracks to be a little more up-tempo. Man on the Mountain steals the show on this album in my opinion. Geri's vocals have greatly improved as well, I was so HAPPY over the moon and when logging on yesterday and reading that this leaked. I don't always come on this forum on a daily basis is why but I really am glad it finally did leak! I was just a few days late in hearing the news...

omg nooo! :o


Lol just me then! I still cant get over how fantastic this album is. I've listened to it a few times today all the way through and every single song is great (IMO). I'm so happy to have it.


I actually agree, I think the Man on the Mountain is Geri's voice digitally pitched down. Considering both the song and the album are named after this mysterious guru-like experience, why would she just use some random guest male vocal as the voice of the guru that she finds enlightenment from? The album also has roots in folk music and country, parts of it remind me of old Dolly Parton albums. Dolly had a storytelling song called "Me & Little Andy" and in the same way as Geri's Man on the Mountain, Dolly pitched her voice up when she spoke as the little girl in the song.

Geri did post some vids while she was in the mountain for her Instagram, she wrote the song there last year :)

I'm not a fan at all of this album except for 2 or 3 songs, I feel Geri can do much better though but it's safe to say she was going for the folk/pop vibe for this album.

She could rip-off 'The Real Slim Shady' and it would still be original when comparing with her own music catalogue. I don't know what's there not to get.

I kinda like MOTM but I'm not too hooked on the chorus. It reminds me so much of "Stregth Of A Woman"...whether that was intentional or not, dunno

What's so hard to understand about "ORIGINAL" in my post meaning "something SHE hadn't done on an album before"? Use your F brain, it's up there for something. :Dizzy:

Stop it, already. I'm over your inability to read and understand something inside its context. Take care.

Hey you started this don't go crying now cause I am right.
The context is she stole parts of a song, there's nothing original about it no matter how you slice it, if the co writers of Breakfast at Tiffany's helped Geri write it that's one thing, but they did not, so she stole the song.

Ie KISS stole the chorus of "The Hunter" For their song "Love Gun", the bass the guitar the drums the words everything. They even did the same with "Mama Mia" they stole the riff from ABBA and made it into "King Of Hearts". How is that original?

The album to me wasn't anything groundbreaking, I'm glad it just leaked. This folk/pop sound for me didn't suit her that well. Some of the songs sounded very similar to some of her older work as well. She could do so much better than this! I'm shocked it took years to just make this... She should stick to contemporary mainstream Pop. I don't believe that this album would hit on any charts.
