This is a very enjoyable CD. There are many songs on here that I like. My personal favorite is In The House of Stone and Light. Keeper of the Flame is also great.

Upbeat pop vocals--very similar to Peter Gabriel/Phil Collins. Good album overall.

The Best Reason to Listen to Music
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Music should be something that touches a part of your brain, grabs onto it fiercely, and refuses to let go until the melody is infused into your psyche. Well, that's exactly what Martin Page does for us with this album. From who I believe is the greatest musician to ever walk this Earth comes what I also believe to be the greatest CD ever fashioned. The opening track, "In the House of Stone and Light," reaches beyond the mainstream easy listening genre to areas previously virgin to musical touch. It grips you with a complicated melody with harmonics that seem to fill every cell in your body and uplift your spirit. Once you hear "Keeper of the Flame," you will never forget it, making it one of the most infectous melodies I've ever heard, and helping to define this album and give it a well deserved position at #1. If there was ever a reason to turn on your CD player, this is it."

"Words really can't describe the pure beauty and honesty Martin Page's music has. I saw him perform on Regis and Kathy Lee when his album first came out, and he mentioned that Phil Collins (my favorite of all-time) played drums on a few tracks. I bought the album and fell in love with it. Martin Page has written some of the 1980s' biggest hits - like "Free Bird/Baby I Love Your Way". All songs on this album are written by Page himself, with the exception of two, in which lyrcist Bernie Taupin, a long-time musical confidant of Elton John's, contributes his lyrical talents. It has upbeat, positive tunes like "In The House of Stone and Light", soft-romantic songs like "Keeper of the Flame" and "Light In Your Heart", as well as some compositions you wouldn't expect to hear on a pop-album. "Shape The Invisible" poetically captures the dark state the world is in. "In My Room" relives the horror of a boy living in a home with a father who phsyically abuses his wife, and "The Door", a song which travels back into the middle of the 1900's when Jews were being taken to the concentration camp Treblinka and tortured and eventually killed. Page's music can be compared to artists like Phil Collins, Peter Gabriel, Sting and Elton John. He, like these three famous artists, is from Britain, with some of the most beautiful music I've ever heard - poetic and pure in the most honest way. It's a shame it wasn't more well heard - then we might see another album by this very talented person."
