Editorial Reviews

Steven Page will tell you that the themes explored in Page One are those of love, loss, and new beginnings. These are universally felt, and no less so for Page. Page One marks his first solo release since leaving the highly successful band he co-founded, wrote and performed with for more than 20 years, Barenaked Ladies. Page's distinctive voice is instantly recognizable and the new songs feel immediately familiar, but undeniably fresh, as he captains the ship through tracks such as "Indecision" and "A New Shore." To navigate this sea, Page assembled a first-rate crew, including co-producer John Fields (Jimmy Eat World, Paul Westerberg), Pete Thomas (Elvis Costello), Glen Phillips (Toad the Wet Sprocket), and even Prince's horn section.

When Page left Barenaked Ladies, the internet world exploded with fears. "BNL will never be the same." "Was it drugs?" and arguments over who was right and wrong continue to this day. The fact of the matter is Steven Page was the essence of BNL. His songs provided the depth and sincerity that made the band great, the depth that "All In Good Time" lacks. That tradition of excellent songwriting continues on into Page's solo career with his fresh start "Page One."

Old fans will immediately fall for Page's incredible and distinct voice, for it will remind them of the glorious days of old that BNL once had. Every BNL album had that song, the incredible climax where Steve would belt out a high note that would make your heart melt. That song is Over Joy. The bridge "I know it's hard, I know it's not fair, but things get easier when I'm not there." is the "Just stop wasting my time!" or "It's way more trouble than some suicide is worth!" of Page One. It really brings the listener close to the artist, it helps you to feel the songwriter's emotion.

The reason this album deserves your attention is truly because of its diversity. Steve dabbles with genres all over the board here, but yet every song sounds like Page. Nothing is forced. She's Trying To Save Me has hints of Beatles influence all over it. Indecision sounds like it came straight out of BNL's back catalog. Clifton Springs and All The Young Monogamists are two beautiful folk songs with tender and honest lyrics. If You Love Me has 80's Genesis written all over it (except Steven Page has a much better voice than Phil Collins... yes I'm a Gabriel fan). Leave Her Alone has the big band swing sound that Steven Page was born to sing. Queen of America sounds somewhat like a song that could fit in right near the end of Maroon and The Chorus Girl is a beautiful song-a-long that is sure to please.

Give this album a shot, I promise you that the magic that BNL once had lingers on in Page One.

Looking back, Steven Page's first solo album, "Vanity Project" (2005), might be viewed as a sort of rebellion. He reached far out into experimental territory simply because he'd never really been able to do it. Now knowing what we know about Steve's unhappiness with his role in Barenaked Ladies, "Vanity Project" is a project better understood. Nonetheless, "Vanity Project" had fantastic songs from front-to-back, such as "Thank You for Sharing" and "Everything's the Same."

What I seem to discern in his new album, "Page One," is that Steve feels more secure with who he is and what he can do. He no longer plays the outcast. He no longer has to worry about fitting in the Barenaked mold, and this really shines through in his new album. He is no longer a "vanity project." He is Steven Page.

Page's long-time friend and songwriting partner, Stephen Duffy, co-wrote seven of the album's twelve songs. Duffy's presence is certainly felt in Page's catchy pop songs such as "She's Trying to Save Me" and "If You Love Me." Without the restraint of Barenaked Ladies, Page successfully ventures into new territory with "Entourage" and "Leave Her Alone," a song co-written by Craig Northy of the Odds and backed by Prince's horn section. The songs solely written by Page reflect his long-time attraction to simple folk tunes with thoughtful, clever lyrics--something that fans expect from Page.

The album's strongest piece, "Over Joy," may be one of the best Page/Duffy songs ever recorded. The refreshing and upbeat "A New Shore," along with "Over Joy" and "If You Love Me," alone make the album worth the $13 price tag. Simply put, Steven Page is back and is successfully moving forward.

This album is very well done.
Steven Page has always been an excellent singer, lyricist, and he comes up with some interesting melodies, that usually break the listeners expectations of what is going to happen.
This albums has all of Steven Page's good qualities, but it is missing an element that was provided by the rest of the Ladies - commercial viability. While this album is still great, I'm not hearing hits.

This only serves to back up the relationship between Ed's work and Steven's work. Ed's songs were immediately more likable. But they got boring. Steven's songs took a little longer to get used to, but they were exceptionally well done, and didn't get boring.
If you look back at an album like Maybe You Should Drive, or Maroon, where more of the work was Steven's, they have aged very well.

I can't say if Page will release any real hits, but I know that this album is well-written, the arrangements are very interesting, and that it will age very well. I'd be happy if he kept making albums as experimental as this.

(Below is an addendum to my review, written well after absorbing the album much more completely)
I'm upping my review to five stars. I'm still not hearing any hits, or at least radio-friendly songs, but the quality of the album is spectacular. I've become more aware of all of the nuance and clever overdubs (like the awkward flute line in Indecision). The album is just... spectacular. His melodies and lyrics are so well done, and confidently executed. There are two songs that I consider to be weaker. Marry Me is not the worst track on the album, but it seems a little simplistic for Page's work. But it pairs nicely with All The Young Monogamists. The track that I almost always wind up skipping is She's Trying To Save Me.
