  1. So even when he's writing winning pop anthems, Page One, ultimately becomes a mirror to his personal life: brilliant, impassioned and articulate, yet undeniably hinged to hiccups, pitfalls and moments of sheer idiocy.

    He may have lost the plot for a bit, but Page is back and his pop sensibility remains sarcastically, unsparingly intact.

    The album is stylistically restless, jumping from power pop to 60s-inspired ballads, with dashes of disco, 80s dance music and klezmer squeezed in.

    Page shows that he still has the ability to write a great pop song here and there on this album, and most of the tracks are at least decent. But his collaborators here, longtime friend Steven Duffy and Craig Northey of The Odds, seem all too willing to go along with Page's indulgences.
