LFO's self-titled 1999 debut introduced a boy group with smarts and imagination a cut or two above those of the Backstreet Boys and 'N Sync acolytes who might otherwise have been their peer group. Casually pop-culture-savvy singles like "Summer Girls" and "Girl on TV" were partly the product of member Rich Cronin's skills. On Life Is Good, Cronin's name appears as a co-writer of every song; again, allusions from "Jack and Diane" to early-'90s rappers Black Sheep fill the likes of "28 Days" (both in that song, in fact). The music ranges from surprisingly guitar-driven pop-rock to hip-hop-wise beats, sometimes melding on tracks such as "Every Other Time." Almost as impressively, guest shots from De La Soul and M.O.P. don't embarrass the host trio. Two versions of "Dandelion" are included, no doubt to facilitate maximum radio exposure; one features neo-soul diva Kelis. They also demonstrate that the Cronin crew's ambitions are as much musical as careerist. --Rickey Wright

"I think LFO is a great Boy Band. Their new single, title track to this CD "Life Is Good", is excellent and extremely catchy! The first single off this album, "Every Other Time" is still a great summer song but kind of overplayed a little by now. My new favorite track off this album is definitely "Life Is Good". But other favorite tracks from LIFE IS GOOD are "28 Days", "6 Minutes", "Alayna", "Gravity", "Where You Are", "What If", and "If I Had A Dollar". The lyrics are creative and original, which shows LFO member, Rich Cronian, has a lot of songwriting talent (he wrote the majority of the songs on this disc). Most of the songs on this CD are catchy and funky tunes with some ballads here and there. LFO's vocals combine great together, and they try to do a mix of Rap and Pop, as being mature, instead of the R&B/Pop most teen Pop artists are doing right now. This is a happy and have-a-good-time album; not some sappy, depressed album. That's probably why they titled this CD, LIFE IS GOOD. If you enjoy Boy Bands or looking for some great Pop music, then pick up your own copy of LIFE IS GOOD by LFO. It's great!"

"This is LFO's second CD and it's somewhat better that their first. When I first heard "every other time" on the radio I knew it was them. I still really like their debut album so I knew I was probably going to like this one. Well I did. LIFE IS GOOD is a bit different than their debut. It's got more of a rock/hip-hop edge. Not so "boy band" sounding. This time around Rich took over on most of the writing and producing. You hardly hear Devin on any tracks (except two). Rich sounds like his tongue's planted firmly in his cheek though out this album. He still throws out stupid lines like "I thought I might bust when she licked her lips" on "6 minutes." Like whatever Rich! LIFE IS GOOD shows LFO branching out into their own style & sound. Rich's silly raps, Devin's sultry vocals and Brads back-up vocals all blend well. Devin gets to shine on "If I had a dollar" and "the sun still shines." Those are two of the best tracks. LIFE IS GOOD indeed."
