Simply Amazing & Marvelous

"I am probably one of the biggest Lifehouse fan's that there is. This album is simply amazing and I love listening to it as much as I can. Jason Wade has exceeded with his voice and actions in this sojourn through a softer melodic path in their career as a group. 'You And Me' and 'Into The Sun' are the hits of this beautiful album. This album is for a bona-fide Lifehouse fan and any fan of romantic moody music. There is songs in this album that are for romantic evenings, wedding dance songs, candlelit dinners as well as just sitting back and relaxing.
This is Lifehouse at their best. This album isn't as good as 'No Name Face' but it sure comes close. My two all time favourite Lifehouse songs are 'Simon' and 'Everything' followed by 'Storm' and 'You And Me'. This album continues the great work of the past albums and continues the evolution of this great group. The video of You And Me is beautiful to watch.
I hope Lifehouse brings out a DVD of many of their songs, it would be fitting for this group of talented young men who are well on their ways to achieving some great accolades and fame. Thankyou Lifehouse for your music that is some of the best I have ever heard as well as inspiring, joyful and retrospective."
Lifehouse have done something speical here!

"If you have ever liked any of Lifehouse's previous music you are going to love this! Jason Wade and crew return to provide heartfelt lyrics and really strong hooks that will blow you away. Although this album is comfortable enough for even the casual listener who is into this type of music. Like any good performer they ace the test and make it look all too easy.
After a difficult period losing two members and one founding member, Lifehouse return with a new bassist and an impressive range of tracks. From the excellent upbeat sounding opener "Come Back Down" into the romantic first single "You and me" the album rocks up another sure fire hit with "Blind" which is a clear contender for the second single. As you dig deeper you will find hit after hit as front man Wade romps through a lyric writing masterclass!
With so many top tracks to choose from, it is no surprise that peoples opinions differ greatly on the best track, but for sure you will find one that you love! I suggest you take a moment, close your eyes, breathe in deeply and really appreciate the emotion within this album. It's Lifehouse at there best.
This album finds Lifehouse at the top of their game musically and lyrically. The best album of the year to date and come years end, I know for sure it will still be way up there! You have to buy this album, your missing out if you don't!"
Incredible Album! You'll be hanging on by more than a moment

"After blowing up on the charts with 2001's "Hanging by a Moment" and massive sales on their debut album "No Name Face" Lifehouse seemed destined for success. But after poor label support (Dreamworks) their follow up album "Stanley Climbfall" came and went almost unnoticed. But it's not entirely the labels fault. The album was weak. Only 2 or so songs sounded anywhere near on par with what "No Name Face presented. So the band faded into near oblivion until recently.
The band went through some small lineup changes and replaced some member with good friends and went back at it and have now joined Geffen records. Their Third major label album simply titled "Lifehouse" was released on 3/22/05.
So did it match up to "No Name Face" or fall like "Stanley Climbfall"? Let's put it this way, this album couldn't have come at a better time. With such artists on the radio as John Mayer, this album couldn't have been released at a better time. It is full of the things that made "No Name Face" a success from mellow guitars, easy to listen to vocals, and Powerful material. This album is a much better follow up album and could be the album that propels Lifehouse even further than their debut did. It's amazing. Not one song sounds like another yet they are all really well done and in the style of Lifehouse.
The standout single "You and Me" was a good choice. It is a ballad but that is usually what appeals and draws people in yet there are many songs on the album that surpass the single such as "Blind" which is an ode to lead vocalist Jason Wade's dead father. It is easily one of the most powerful and emotional songs I have had the pleasure of hearing. There are so many standouts on this album "Come Back Down", "All in All", "Into the Sun". This album is a deep and soothing listening experience and gets you away from the world.
"Lifehouse" have definitely outdone themselves on this album. If you were a fan of their first album then you definitely need to get this one and it is impossible for you to be disappointed. They have definitely grown and the lineup changes suited the band. The new label has been behind the album and have given them top notch quality. The album was initially going to be an independant release but jumping in and helping out might be one of the best moves Geffen has ever made. Check it out.
FINAL ANALYSIS: If you are looking for something to get away from the world, chill out, and listen to that is soothing, sometime upbeat, deep and smart lyrically, this is definitely your album
