With the 1991 hit "Sadeness," Enigma brought the new age fascination with Gregorian chants and old-world culture to the clubs; the resulting music was both unique and irresistible.
Nontheless, "Voyageur" was considered to be Enigma's most different album ever created, due to Enigma's drastic changes in sounds as compared to the previous four albums. The project's signature shakuhachi flutes, Gregorian chants and tribal chants found on the earlier albums were all but gone on Voyageur. Instead, most of the songs found on the album were more pop-oriented, such as "Voyageur", "Incognito", "Boum-Boum" and "Look of Today".
Michael Cretu described Voyageur's genre as "sophisticated pop". Only a few samples of previous works are retained; a familiar reversed cymbal rhythm appears in "Look of Today", while "Incognito" contains the chorus of previous hit "Sadeness" buried in the bridge of the song. The "Enigma foghorn" also appears at the opening of the record.
Michael Cretu always says he composes late at night, he describes his songs as a landscape of emotions. And Page of Cups seems to capture the essence of night with powerful emotions. "Very deep emotions are in music" says Michael Cretu. Definitely, this is one of his best songs..

Dites-moi ... retours...Dites-moi ... retours
Pour toute ma vie je suis là, à côté de toi
Je suis ton destin, mon amour, my love
Dans ta vie de tristesse, de chagrin
Si tu es à côté de moi, mon amour, my love...
Say it to me..come back, return...Say it to me ..come back, return
For all my life I will be with you
I'm your destiny, my love, my love
In your life of sadness, of pain
If you're next to me... my love, my love
Come back. Return...
