Overview

Lifehouse

There's no shortage of angry young men in the realm of rock, but when it comes to articulate and mature 20-somethings, the field is fairly open -- which makes Lifehouse frontman Jason Wade all the more compelling. There's a dreamy aspect to a number of the disc's dozen tunes, as evidenced by the opening "Come Back Down," which pits airy harmonies against a backdrop focused on a spare, chiming guitar line. Wade still has issues in the realm of romance -- a trait that might wreak havoc in his personal life but one that enables him to compose compellingly angsty missives like the stormy "You and Me" and the wounded "We'll Never Know" (which has a streak of Goo Goo Dolls balladry running through it). For "Walking Away," on the other hand, Wade takes a slightly more detached approach, one that's underscored by the deliberate pace and soft-focus guitars reminiscent of psychedelic-era Beatles album tracks. There's nothing particularly groundbreaking in the grooves of Lifehouse, but Wade pours so much of himself into them, those familiar sounds take on a newly minted sheen.

WOW, they are really rocking!!!! I find their songs so inspirational, especially after a hard day. Then I just pop in their cd and sit back and relax and listen to their lyrics. Thanx, Lifehouse, for making all my bad days good! And for all you other Lifehouse fans, you guys rock!! Keep supporting them!!

Lifehouse's newest cd is truly amazing. They definitely are one of those bands that will be around for along time. It seems that with every cd they get better and better, and that no matter how many times you might listen to any of their cds, you can't get sick of them. They also are a great band to see live which makes them even more wonderful. I'd highly recommend if you haven't already purchased this cd to go and get it, because it is a worthy purchase.

I've listened to this album about ten times already. It's a really good CD. I highly recommend it. If you love U2, the Goo Goo Dolls or Matchbox Twenty, you'll enjoy this album. Besides,"You and Me," I like the song "Into the Sun," and "All and All." Their is no bad songs on this album. This album rules.

Lifehouse has reinvented their sound every time they have released an album, so it's no wonder that they sound different on this CD than they have on all the rest. If you listen to all 3 records, you’ll find that none of them sound 100% alike – The second record is more intense and edgier than the first, and the third is a lot more laid back than the second. That being said, the album contains an awesome network of songs (albeit a little repetitive at times towards the latter tracks), and it is just as good as their previous two. The first 6 songs of the CD are absolutely amazing, and in an age where music is so mass-produced to the point where everything basically sounds the same, this CD is definitely a good buy.

I just bought the new Lifehouse CD a couple of days ago and I can't stop listening to it! It's so great. The music is very mellow. My two favorite songs on the CD are 'Come Back Down' and 'You and Me'. I would definitely recommend it everyone!

A week after buying this album, it's still in my CD player. Although I do think it takes a few listens to really grow on you, once you become familiar with the songs, this CD is exceptional. The first three songs, "Come Back Down," "You and Me," and "Blind" are some of the best on the CD in my opinion, and, with their catchy hooks and radio appeal, are natural choices for singles. Two more songs that I have grown to love are "All in All" and "Chapter One," both with a slightly different feel to them, but surprisingly appealing. They are both fun, light, and have similar positive messages. One of my favorite songs on the album is "Better Luck Next Time," such a powerful song with really incredible vocals. "Days Go By," "Undone," and "We'll Never Know" are also potential singles with upbeat, catchy choruses. Some of the more mellow songs on the album, like "Into the Sun" or "Walking Away," aren't my type of song, but are still amazingly done. The last song on the CD is "The End Has Only Begun," and, while not one of my favorites, it's a good song to end the album with. To anyone considering buying this CD, I would definitely recommend it. Even if you don't like every single song, chances are you will love most of it, and many of the songs will begin to grow on you after two or three listens. This CD is not quite as amazing as "No Name Face," the band's first album, but it contains some of their best songs yet. "Lifehouse" is a fantastic follow-up from an incredible band.

This CD is genuine revelation. Excellent melodies with incredible vocal. On this CD is potential hits a lot, like Blind, Come Back Down or We'll Never Know. Sometimes people want the better album then the latest. Maby this CD wasn't better then NNF or SC, but Lifehouse is the greatest too. I think guys have done the best work in order to alleviate us - fans. Whatever they do it's great. Like this album. So I recommend it very much. This CD is for everyone - old fans, new fans or ordinary people, who loves great music :). I listening it all the time and I can't stop. I assure, nobody will convented by new CD. So people, buy new album of Lifehouse! Peace. Kaina Kowbel (aka nanishi) from Poland. P.S. Sorry for my enlish, but I study english for 2 years. I writhe this review with translator, so forgive me my errors. :)

Lifehouse's new self titled album is great! After their first hit, "Hanging By A Moment", Lifhuose hasn't stopped writing great music. This new CD is great! You'll be jamming and singing along to these awesome new tunes in no time!

the album is great. it has many potential hits on it. there wasn't a break in the whole cd where the song that you really don't like plays, and you have to skip it to find the one song that you like. they are all great. all of the songs are easy to relate to.

I feel this is great new material from Lifehouse. It's been a while since we've heard anything new, and the band has added a new bassist, but haven't missed a beat. The new songs are just as gripping with Jason's amazing voice, and the emotion tied up in the songs oozes out as you listen. I can't get enough of this CD right now, and I'm sure it'll take it's place as one of my favorites.

I have been a fan of Lifehouse since their first album and there is no other band out there that I would rather listen to over and over again. This album is full of great hits. Come Back Down is a beautiful song and very inspirational. I hope to hear it soon on the radio. Blind is another song that I listen to over and over. Jason's voice on We'll Never Know is refreshing and it has become my favorite song on the album. And, of course, You and Me is the sweetest song. I will enjoy this album, just like the previous two, for many years to come!

This cd is great! The second cd, Stanley Climbfall, seemed to be more mummbling then singing.This new album makes up for all of that though! Stanley Climbfall was very good and so was No Name Face. GREAT BAND!

This album is great! There is not a song on it that I don't like! It is one of the best albums I have ever heard! Jason, the lead singer, has a soothing voice that just makes it a CD you don't want to stop listening to!

With the changes in Lifehouse, I wasn't sure what to expect with this new album. It has a mellower sound to it and is different from their previous albums. I love this new album. Lifehouse is one of those bands that stuck with me since I first heard "Hanging By a Moment" in 2001. This album won't get a 5-star rating from me. I still think No Name Face is the best of their albums. My reviews on the songs: Come Back Down - (9/10) An excellent choice to start off this album. The song has inspirational lyrics and the piano in the background is a great mix with this song. It is a motivational song. You And Me - (9/10) Captivated me the first time I heard it. It is a beautiful love song, great for all the romantics out there. The song is a great tune for everyone and a great choice as a promotional single. Blind - (9/10) Reminds me a lot of the old Lifehouse just with the tone and music. I think this song is great and is a good pick on guitar. This could possibly be the next single. All in All - (8/10) The vocals in this song (in the chorus) really caught my attention because it sounded different in the notes. I like this song a lot and the message that life will continue despite the things you encounter. Better Luck Next Time - (6/10) Sounds okay, but it didn't really catch my attention. I liked the lyrics, but I didn't like the music that went with it. Days Go By - (8/10) I remember this song from the Win A Date With Tad Hamilton soundtrack. I really enjoyed the lyrics to this song and I think it flowed well. Into the Sun - (9/10) I really love mellow songs. A great song, despite it being about a love lost (or however you want to interpret it). I think this is one of the best songs on this album. Undone - (7/10) I liked the lyrics to this song. It sounds good as an upbeat song, and could be a single. I think Jason could have made the high notes a little lower so it could blend in more with the rest of the song. We'll Never Know - (8/10) I think this is also one of the stronger songs on this album. The catchy lyrics could also make this song a potential single. Walking Away - (7/10) I enjoyed the lyrics to this mellow song. There's vivid imagery in these lyrics but it sounds repetitive (the tone of the song). Chapter One - (7/10) This was an okay song, but I didn't like the different music style prominent in this song. To listen to, this song is fine, but I would never consider it a favorite. The End Has Only Begun - (7/10) This song also seemed a bit repetitive to me. The album started out great, but ended mediocre.

This album is a great follow up to both Lifehouse albums. Jason Wade's lyrics speak to many and his soft raspy voice calms the listener. With a more grown up sound Lifehouse is truly starting to develop their own style. Try "Into the Sun".

Lifehouse is back and better than ever! After taking almost 2 years off, Lifehouse has exploded back on to the music scene with more power than ever before! I enjoy listening to each track on this cd. I first started listening to Lifehouse's music because I could relate the songs to my life very easily. This record is no exception!! Every song has an intricate place in the album and it is a wonderful and meaningful mix of songs! Lifehouse is very talented and I think that some of you may consider this album the best album yet!!

When Lifehouse first came out, I fell in love with Jason Wade's voice and the superb songwriting strength he possessed. Sergio and Diff were amazing too, but they have been replaced, and Wade remains the sole remaining member. The first Lifehouse CD remains one of my 4 favorite all-time CDs. If you liked this CD, you shoudl get their first one. The second CD, Stanley Climbfall, wasn't exactly a disappointment, but it was a real shock for me. It was softer, and while Wade's lyrics were just as magical, it was less... loud? It seemed more soft and smoothed over- a jump from the first CD. After Stanley Climbfall, I wondered if I really liked Lifehouse as much. I took a chance and purchased this CD and I have to say.... this is an excellent CD. If you weren't a huge fan of Stanley Climbfall, give Jason Wade another chance. It's worth it. This CD goes back to where No Name Face was- but incorporates the somewhat softness of Stanley Climbfall. Listen to the first three songs, and if you can't feel attached to the lyrics, if not the music, I'll be amazed. This is one of my 4 favorite all-time CDs too- and in closing, all I have to say is that this has to be one of the best CDs I have heard in a long, long time. It's well worth your money, and if you like this CD, try No Name Face if you already haven't. Wade has matured and taken his previous two CDs- one hsi harder side, one his softer side- and put them together to form a jewel.

Every song on this album is beautiful in its own way. You will not be disappointed if you get it. The lyrical poetry and strong melodies of lead singer Jason Wade won't let you down. The deep, meaningful lyrics that Lifehouse has produced in the past are still very much alive and strong. After a short hiatus, it is so great to have Jason and Rick back along with a great new bassist, Bryce Soderburg. It is very much worth your purchase!

Another good Cd from lifehouse. The words are very poetic and it has a smooth, calming, melody throughout that makes you fall in love with the album.
