What excites me most is that she seems to be summarizing her entire career using her recent lyrics.

Virgin Road was a reflection song to mirror A Song for XX.
Dream ON was a rendition on Heartplace lyrics, and the phrase "1 LOVE" was also inside.
do it again has one line which is almost the exact phrase she used in Naturally.
November has obvious references to Endless sorrow (one wing) and Moments (bird reference).

It may seem like I'm reading too much into things, but I like to think that she's giving tribute to the songs of her past. It's wonderful and exciting, spotting all these little references.

But I guess cynicists can argue that she's running out of creativity and reusing old themes lol!!
