Cause Kevin said the album had no official title yet, but he thought it was going to me MOTM.

It's a horrible name for an album. It should be I'm Older Now or something more fitting. I like the song Man On A Mountain but as album name it doesn't work

Yeah I'm not a fan of the album name either. If she was going to choose a song title, Love & Light would work better.

I'd call it Humanity myself if it had to be an album track.

I do like Love and Light aswell.

I would love to see another solo spice album given an original name like Schizophonic though.

I'm Older Now is much better, more fitting title. Man On The Mountain isn't bad, though.

I'd go with love and light and then categorize the songs the same way she did with her first two amazing albums!

I think it kind of works considering the style of the record and it seems to me the song (and much of the album) is about her relationship with Christian so him being her 'Man on the Mountain' and her calling the album that is quite nice really.

I don't like it that much too but the song is actually one of my favourite.
Love&Light could have been a very ncie title (and 1st single)

Not going to lie, all of the song titles are a bit cheesy for an album title.

That's how I see it.

I think "Man on the Mountain" is an excellent title. It has a nice ring to it, and it fits the style of the majority of the songs - which are more singer/songwriter than pop.

If it is the title she wanted I see this too. She would think it is a bit quirky.

The "Man on the Mountain" is God. Look at it this way, and it totally makes sense as the album title...

Perhaps. Or someone she sees as a God-like figure?

I think its about a wiseman, someone who rised and learnt that you dont need objects to be happy, he realised that with no posessions he is free. So the mountain is just an obstacle.

Didn't she say in an interview she actually climbed a mountain? Was it in Austria or somewhere? then spoke about how she wrote a song about it. Maybe up there she actually met actually genuine man who lives a simple life. Maybe he said those words or maybe she just wrote that for the song. I think she's actually writing about something that happened, not something made up

I love the title, it's so different. Apart from Passion she has always had quirky album titles.

The second verse of the song gives it a whole religious overtone, I think. Some of my favorite lyrics on the album; they actually brought tears to my eyes the first time.

But I am a Christian, so might just be identifying with the lyrics in my own way.

I love this album, guys. This song especially.
