Album Review

Three albums in and Lifehouse sound comfortable — comfortable in their skin, comfortable working within the constraints of adult alternative radio, comfortable enough to deaden any possible lingering Creed or Stone Temple Pilots comparisons that might have plagued them after their first two records. Here, on their eponymous third album, Lifehouse is a rock band that doesn't rock. They strum acoustic guitars and sing earnest mid-tempo anthems and ballads, all given a slick shine by producer John Alagia, who has previously worked on records by the Dave Matthews Band, John Mayer, and Jason Mraz — a collaborator whose very presence indicates how far the group has shifted from its early Brendan O'Brien productions. While some longtime fans will miss the band's harder side, Lifehouse sound, well, more comfortable in this setting, and they've made an album that's smooth, mellow, pleasant, and tuneful, a record that's designed to ease onto the AAA radio waves, where it will politely sit next to songs by Matthews, Mayer, and Mraz.

Customer Reviews

brilliant

i love lifehouse. they kind of have a john mayer-ish feel to them, which is good. i just love their sound and the different vibe they bring. it's a nice change from our usual mainstream crap :)

Great

I am sort of disappointed. I was hoping it would be like their last album "Stanley Climbfall" and have a bit more emotion. I still like this album nonetheless, but I was hoping for something better. Overall though, this is an awesome album. You can tell by the songs, Lifehouse takes time and pride into bringing these songs to life. Jason Wade just completes this whole album. The lyrics are phenomenal. I love the song "You and Me". Give it a try.

Rewarding listening experience

I've purchased all 4 of Lifehouse's albums (5 including the live); although each is great, this is by far my favourite. What I like most would be the emotional rawness and honesty that had gone into crafting the lyrics and having their poetic meters so skillfully woven with the melodies and expressiveness of lead singer's Jason Wade's rich vocal variety and the band's talent. Although at least 2 of the songs would have been written based on Wade's strained relationship with his father ("Blind" and "Walking Away," as a listener, it would be difficult not to feel the anguish and resentment (especially in the song "Blind" with the wailing guitars in the background to the full range of Jason's vocal pitches). Equally, I find it difficult not to experience the feelings of infatuation/love towards someone who doesn't know it, and you're afraid both they'd find out and not find out. "You got my head spinning," is the line that sums it up the best for me. I'm quite disappointed this album wasn't more successful than it was. Other songs that have to get special mention would be "Chapter One" and "Come Back Down." I've been listening repeatedly to this album since getting it 3 months ago. Buy this album!

Led by singer/songwriter Jason Wade, Lifehouse emerged in the early 2000s with a commercial blend of pop/rock melody and throaty, post-grunge vocals. Wade, who originally tagged the band Blyss upon its inception in 1996, was raised by missionary parents in a variety of locales. He eventually settled in Los Angeles with his mother and took a keen interest in songwriting. Bassist Sergio Andrade lived next door, and the two spent hours in Wade's garage, fine-tuning their original compositions and laying...
