With Who We Are, their fourth album in seven years, Lifehouse are really starting to enjoy the fruits of their success and have some fun. Their multi-platinum 2000 debut, No Name Face, produced Hanging by a Moment, a #1 alternative hit which crossed over to become Top 40’s Most Played Song and won a Billboard Music Award for Hot 100 Single of the Year. 2005’s self-titled platinum effort yielded You and Me, a giant hit ballad that set a record by spending more than 60 weeks on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, Lifehouse are not just the sum of their considerable accomplishments.
On Who We Are, singer-songwriter Jason Wade — along with drummer Rick Woolstenhulme and bassist Bryce Soderberg — gets back to the basics of what made him first form the band while still a teenager in suburban California. Producing themselves for the first time with Jude Cole, who also co-wrote several of the new songs, that joy comes across unfettered on the rocking twang of the lead single, First Time, already climbing the Hot A/C and Top 40 charts, a fond look back at the butterflies and excitement of the initial rush of romance. Songs off the new album include: The Joke, Broken, Make Me Over, Disarray & Storm. With all their radio airplay, multi-platinum sales and awards, Lifehouse are still intent on raising the bar, which makes Who We Are a revelation both musically and lyrically.
