Who We Are

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Questions of identity seem to loom large in Lifehouse's mind. On their third album, they titled it after themselves, and now on the 2007 follow-up, they state Who We Are -- a declaration that could easily be a question depending on the punctuation and emphasis. Does this fourth album add up to a statement or question? It's the former, but that doesn't necessarily provide a fulfilling answer for doubters. The curious thing about Who We Are is that the trio still parties like we've just left Y2K: there's no garage punk, no emo, no spacy precious pop, no electronic flourishes -- it's post-alternative guitar rock preserved in amber.

Guitarist/singer/songwriter Jason Wade contends that he's battling inner demons by wresting angels on the opening "Disarray," but Lifehouse don't hit as hard as they used to, since the bandmembers are starting to see the twilight of their twenties. Although there is little melody here, they're starting to mellow in characteristic fashion: with sincerity.

    Best Lifehouse Album yet!

    Each song on this album was great! This was the album to get me to become a Lifehouse fan, because of their new sound. Each song is deep and meaniful in its own way. A def. must buy for any music lovers out there!

    Amazing, As Usual

    Lifehouse has always been amazing. And this CD is through the roof. I was impressed with them...again. Wonderful, well planned lyrics. Lifehouse is a very "classy" band. I never get tired of their songs. Buy this CD. It is beautiful. Although, I have to say, who thought up the un-imaginative title "Who We Are"? Everybody uses that phrase. Oh, well. When it's Jason Wade's voice coming through...who cares!!!

    Best CD Ever!

    After hearing them live for the first time, I was hooked!!!. This cd is great from the 1st song to the last. I cannot stop listening to this and I turn this on the minute I roll out of bed. I love Jason's voice, after a hard day of work, all I have to do is listen to this, and my day is all good....
