Their 2000 debut, No Name Face, went double-platinum, partly on the strength of the giant radio single "Hanging by a Moment." Now hear Jason Wade and Co.'s follow-up, featuring the new single "Spin" and produced by No Name knob-twiddler Ron Aniello. The disc's title, Stanley Climbfall, arose from a pun on a new song called "Stand, Climb, Fall."

Overview

Their 2000 debut, No Name Face, went double-platinum, partly on the strength of the giant radio single "Hanging by a Moment." Now hear Jason Wade and Co.'s follow-up, featuring the new single "Spin" and produced by No Name knob-twiddler Ron Aniello. The disc's title, Stanley Climbfall, arose from a pun on a new song called "Stand, Climb, Fall." "Everyone has their ups and downs," Wade told Billboard. "So after a lot of wordplay...'Stand, Climb, Fall' was transformed into an everyday character named 'Stanley Climbfall,' who goes through those kinds of changes." The limited-edition version includes two bonus tracks: "How Long" and "Sky Is Falling."

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Dean Carlson
In lieu of 2002's skate-metal and earnest AOR grunge, on follow-up album Stanley Climbfall Lifehouse are more at ease than most with Scott Weiland's swampmonster vocals and power-crunched guitar riffs. The band also knows how to dig a big chorus out of its thick dynamics when called for, a useful tactic reminiscent of Silverchair's first album and the big-gestured rock of Creed and John Cougar Mellencamp. Ron Aniello and Brendan O'Brien bring their recognizable hair metal production to the effort.

This album proves that success has not spoiled Lifehouse. Their rich, textured lyrics and their guitar driven sound remains as does the genuine humility that has made this band stand out amongst a pack of inflated ego-driven maniacs which surround them. This album is right on par with No Name Face and Diff's Lucky Day (under the original name of Blyss Bliss)

Lifehouse's sophomore effort, oddly-titled Stanley Climbfall, proves this band goes far beyond the realm of one-hit wonders. After the double platinum success of their debut album No Name Face, mostly due to the sensational popularity of the first single "Hanging By A Moment," which became the Most Spun Song of 2001, many critics speculated that the band's 15 minutes of fame were over. After a listen to Stanley, every hasty critic will be eating his/her words! This album's clear evolution from its predecessor makes evident the lack of anxiety Lifehouse felt about creating another "Hanging." Lead singer/songwriter Jason Wade, along with bassist Sergio Andrade and drummer Rick Woolstenhulme, kept the focus off the past and on the future during the album's creation, concentrating less on another radio-friendly hit and more on staying true to the music. This is obvious in tracks like "Wash," a complete masterpiece of ingenuity. The album's title track is a melodic winding road of soothing harmony and vocal prowess. Admittedly influenced by such brit-rockers as U2, Coldplay, and Radiohead, Lifehouse has carved out their own sound in a genre of copycats. Songs like "My Precious" showcase this new European influence, while tracks like "Take Me Away" and the first single "Spin" incorporate driving guitar rhythm with soul-searching lyrics. Wade's spiritual influences produce epics like "Empty Space," "Anchor," and "The Beginning" - quite probably the best ending for a record in years.

"Hold my hand while i am sinking in the sand no one could understand you are my anchor",that is just one of the many great chorus's in this great album.The 1st song "spin" is a touch of Hanging by a moment" but from there onwards the new album has songs that are more uplifting and are very easy to listen to aswell.The lyrics by Jason Wade are very well written and you can tell they come from his life experiences,i highly recommend this album.Every song is a little different and it works leaving it with its own identity that you can easily pick out from the rest of the tracks,i have to say that the song"anchor" is my favourite but songs like "sky is falling",Wash",My Precious" and the titled track Stanely Climbfall" are very strong tracks and like i said have a different sound that will make you think of a particular part in the song and it will be in your head all day untill you go home and play it and then.....you sing to it and you like it even more,Lifehouse have that effect that was shown on their debut album, if you liked No Name Face you will LOVE this one.By the way when i wrote this i had only had the album for a week and it has not left the cd player so as you can see the cd has that impact,go on ......buy it,it is the best 30 dollars you will spend of late

Their long awaited Album titled ¿Stanley Climbfall¿ is soon to be a hit. Some of the songs such as the first single of the cd "Spin" Is a great song. Other favorites included on the cd are ¿Wash¿, ¿Anchor¿ and ¿Out Of Breath¿. The cd also includes the tour hit ¿Take Me Away¿ the band played for the fans on the ¿No Name Face¿ tour. This cd is great and anyone who likes good music should check out ¿Stanley Climbfall¿ Sept. 17th.

I am very impressed with this band, however the Stanley Climbfall album does not quite reach the heights of No Name Face. Whilst they have come out with two great songs off the album - Spin and Take Me Away the rest of the album lacks in that it never really gets going. There are also no ballads that are worth mentioning if you are a fan of this genre of music. Still whilst the album does lack a little there are a few brief moments of Lifehouse class.

I have listened to all of the songs on Lifehouse's new CD "Stanley Climbfall" and I have to say it's ten times better than "No Name No Face". Seriously i didn't think that was even possible because it was soooo great but this cd kicks major rear I advise everyone to GO OUT AND GET IT asap you won't regret it.

Lifehouse has got to be one of the best bands ever and I cannot wait to hear Stanley Climbfall, follow-up to their double platinum album No Name Face. Although I haven't heard it yet, I'm giving it 5 stars because Lifehouse is simply amazing and they create nothing but beautiful work!

I love the reviewer who is so hypocritical to say that Lifehouse copied Coldplay and Metallica. If this were even the slightest bit true, I could say the same for Slayer or Metallica or any one of the bands this reviewer has claimed is so great and "original". The all copied Elvis. Ha! Metallica are posers for copying elvis. They yell too much. Metallica is the reason for 9/11. Blah blah blah. Not to mention, Lifehouse is great in concert. If the reviewer truly hated Lifehouse from the get go like they claimed too I doubt they would have seen them in concert.

Okay, I'm not saying Lifehouse sucks because they don't. But I've gotta be honest here when I say "Stanley Climbfall" is a major disappointment, considering that this is the same band that released "No Name Face". Nothing on the new album stands out, the whole thing kind of drones and I'm sorry- I have to say it: Jason Wade's vocals are SO ANNOYING! I liked 'em on the first album but on the second... uh, his mumbling gets so tired. Don't get me wrong, I'm not bashing Lifehouse as a band. Ever see 'em live? SO good. So good, in fact, that I actually like the tracks on "Stanley Climbfall" when they're being performed, but still... I just expected more from these guys. Hm. Maybe next time, huh?
