Here's how I rate each song:
1. Spin - 8.5/10
2. Wash - 8.0/10
3. Sky Is Falling - 9.0/10 - Addictive, you will be humming this one all day.
4. Anchor - 8.5/10
5. Am I Ever Gonna Find Out - 9.5/10
6. Stanley Climbfall - 9.0/10 - Slower, great lyrics.
7. Out of Breath - 9.0/10 - Sure radio hit, awesome beat.
8. Just Another Name - 10.0/10 - This one is so different from anything Lifehouse has done, I think you'll either love it or skip it. The guitar-tamborine combo at the start sets the tone before the drum kicks in. It's the best song I've heard from any band in a long long time.
9. Take Me Away - 8.5/10
10. My Precious - 8.0/10
11. Empty Space - 8.0/10
12. The Beginning - 8.5/10 - Very U2 sounding, adds a new dimension to the band.
13. How Long - 8.0/10
14. Sky Is Falling (acoustic) - 9.0/10 - Excellent acoustic version of track 3. Could have been released either way, good decision to release as a bonus track.
If you are a fan of 'No Name Face', you cannot go wrong with 'Stanley Climbfall'.
The album opens up with the smash radio single, Spin, a driving alterna-pop tune which eases up on the momentum for a tedious bridge before diving back into the electric guitar hooks that lend this song its edge. This is followed by Wash, a melodically monotonous song heavy on repeating some of the most uncreative lyrics of this record: "you wash over me, you wash over me like rain. you wash over me, you wash over me like sunshine." Luckily for all Lifehouse fans, the album quickly improves.
Wade leads us into Sky is Falling with understated, well-crafted opening lines, and all is well with the world. Anchor turns up the intensity with an electric introduction, easing the listener between melodic channels and an athemic chorus, while the verses of Am I Ever Gonna Find Out stand out as an album highlight. Title track Stanley Climbfall abandons the usual Lifehouse formula to experiment in gently flowing, melancholy leads, a dreamy chorus, and the playful tweaking of "stand, climb, and fall" to bring us the record's protagonist, oddly-named everyman Stanley. Fans in a subdued mood will be hard-pressed to avoid singing along on the "da da das" before Out of Breath returns them to more familiar Lifehouse territory.
Just Another Name is a personal favorite, starting with a kicky rhythm guitar before bringing in the rest of the band on this tribute to the artificiality of the social games of popularity and fame. "Which mask will you wear today?" Wade inquires.Read more ›
Stanley Climbfall has 12 new songs from Lifehouse that I instantly began to favor. Although some more than others, I am sure to come around to the songs I've yet to listen to a lot. My favorites right now are Spin, Out of Breath, Just Another Name, Take Me Away, Precious, and Am I Ever Gonna Find Out.
Just like No Name Face, Stanley Climbfall has soft, meaningful ballads; songs that make you happy with life; and power songs that speak meaningful truth. Lifehouse has now proven they're here to stay with this great, great cd.
Spin-This is one of the most up-beat and fast paced songs on the album. It turns a bad mood into a good one. 10/10
Wash-The drum-work in this song seems to show itself a little more than the rest of the album. 10/10
Sky Is Falling-One of the most haunting but beautiful tracks on the cd.
Anchor-Anchor gets my adrenaline pumping with its harmoneous, non-stop alternative rock. 10/10
Am I Ever Going To Find Out-This song makes me think about what it is that I am looking for in life and if I ever going to find what it is that i'm looking for. 9/10
Stanley Climbfall-In life, we all stand, climb, fall and get back up again. This song explains it all. 9/10
Out of Breath-This song is one of their harder songs but in the same, it is very emotional and gives me chills when I hear it. 10/10
Just Another Name-This song is kind of hard to follow. Nevertheless, it has a great beat and good lyrics. 8/10
Take Me Away-This is one of their best rock songs on the CD. It gives hope to all of us wanting to get away and leave our past lives behind. 10/10
The rest of the music on the album are all 10/10s.Read more ›
