Editors’ Notes

After a decade in the limelight, Lifehouse remains defiantly untrendy on Smoke & Mirrors. Singer Jason Wade’s nervous charisma is once again applied to songs that capture anxious emotional states and fleeting glimpses of transcendence. Many of Smoke & Mirrors’ songs sketch dead-end moods and dysfunctional relationships, with the hope of release hovering just beyond the horizon. If tracks like “Halfway Gone”, “Had Enough” and “It Is What it Is” are colored with melancholy, their choruses provide enough bursts of energy to dispel the gloom. The album’s high points include “Nerve Damage” (a slinky number with a dreamy guitar interlude) and “By Your Side” (a piano-based number with an empathetic message). Lifehouse’s post-grunge roots are exposed here and there, especially in the edgy “All In” and the angry “Here Tomorrow Gone Today”. For the most part, though, the band prefers to insinuate and emote rather than flex their rock muscles. Lifehouse stays true to its trademark sound, keeping its words ambiguous and its music hook-laden and consistently accessible.

Amazing album

In case you happen to be reading this.. I think you should do a UK tour. The weathers not that bad, honest! =)

Seriously good album, release date couldn't have come quick enough.

Amazing Album :)

My friend introduced me to Lifehouse and I cannot thank her enough! This album portrays the band's amazing talent. Having been featured on hit-shows such as Smallville shows how awesome these guys are. My favourite song is undoubtedly 'Everything' and I can listen to it on replay for hours! Just one listen will have you wanting more!
Lifehouse should be proud of every single track :)


Stunning album. Two tracks especially "from where you are" and "Everthing" moved me to tears. I really hope they get the credit they deserve and also tour the UK sometime soon. Thank you guys for a fantastic selection of songs

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...
