Lifehouse is a quality band, perhaps underrated by those who view them only as another mainstream rock act because of their two massive hits this decade. Unsurprisingly, their debut, "No Name Face," remains their strongest effort to date. Their next two records were solid and did not disappoint, but they did not wow anybody either. This album, "Who We Are," is a step up from the last two, but still does not approach their debut.

"Disarray" gets the music off to a rocking start the way "Spin" did for "Stanley Climbfall." It's a good sign when the first single, "First Time," is not the best song on the album even though it is already a hit. Again, this song is more rock-oriented, a contrast to their softer self-titled album.

"Whatever It Takes," would be a decent choice as a third single. Lifehouse has a knack for sounding fresh without necessarily breaking down any musical barriers. None of their songs sound like a rehash of previous works, which is a feat for a band this successful. This track, as well as several others, proves that Jason Wade is one of the better songwriters in music today.

The title track is a great song with a driving force behind it. The next song, "Broken," is the best song on the album and likely to be a huge hit both on mainstream and Christian music radio stations. An emotional, powerful ballad written about one of Wade's friends, this song is an example of how Wade's lyrics can appeal to both the spiritual and secular crowd.

"The Joke" is upbeat and different, likely to be hit or miss with fans. The second half of the album is filled with tracks that are good but do not match up to the first few songs. The exception is the sublime "Storm," an official version of the song Jason Wade wrote early in his songwriting career. Wade's deep vocals are strong enough to carry the first minute of this song without any instrumental accompaniment, and the rest of this song finishes the album on a strong note.

Its amazing how Lifehouse keeps coming out with songs that just seem to hit me right where they need to. I felt something with each and every song on Who We Are. The only song i didnt really enjoy was The Joke and maybe. If i give that a few more listens i will start to enjoy that a bit more.

I cant even pick a song out of here that is my favorite because i enjoy them all particularily:

Who We Are
First Time

I could list the whole album tracklist, but you get the picture. Mr. Wade has a way with not only bringing the songs to life but singing them in such a way that. You cant help feel a part of them and the band as a whole seem to be clicking on all cylinders in every other aspect on this cd. I love me some Lifehouse and as long as they keep bringing out new music. I will be there in line buying it on day one.

I loved "Who We Are" from the first note of the first song the "First Time"

Reeling from the huge success of their multi-format hit "You And Me," Lifehouse is back to prove that they are in fact a rock group that can turn up the volume whenever they choose with a good deal of success. With "Hanging By A Moment," released in 2000 and popularized in 2001 as the most played song on radio for the year, Lifehouse began on alternative formats and spread their wings from there. Since then, the band has stuck to more Mainstream Pop and Adult Contemporary formats, with popular songs like "Spin" and "Take Me Away" from their sophomore effort Stanley Climbfall. With their third release, self-titled, Lifehouse added bassist Bryce Soderberg and came up with yet another huge hit, "You And Me," leaving no doubt that these boys could never be considered one hit wonders. With Who We Are, Lifehouse goes back to a mixture of uptempo rockers and the usual ballads. The result is a solid album with many hits and very few misses.

The first single "First Time" has been doing well on radio and is poised to be a summer smash. This uptempo rock song is extremely catchy and will have you tapping your feet to it in no time as it builds up to the searing chorus.

The sure fire next single is the ballad "Broken." This song, unbelievably well written, came out of a trip Wade took to Nashville to visit a dear friend waiting on a kidney transplant, but it can be related to many different situations because of Wade's universal lyrics. The emotional grip of this song is deep, and in my opinion, this song alone is enough of a reason to buy the album.

Another hidden gem for the Lifehouse faithful is the last song "Storm.

Once again Lifehouse's great sound is defined in their 4th album. This new album addresses their maturity as a band, and connects the dots from their past to the present.

1. Disarray-This song definitely opens the album in a great rockin' intro.
2. First Time-The single for this album; greatly put together and makes for some good on-the-go music.
3. Whatever it Takes-This is one of my favorites on the album. This song contains an emotional breakdown of rock and soul.
4. Who We Are-Nicely written lyrics, kind of a filler-song for the album.
5. Broken-This would make a good ending for a sad movie. Lyrics are great!
6. The Joke-If you had fallen asleep to the rest of the album, this song will wake you up. Jason tests the waters of his vocals, wakes the audience
7. Easier To Be-This is another one of my favorite songs. It will bring you back to your childhood with the lyrics, and draw tears with the music.
8. Make Me Over-This song sets the mood for the rest of the album. There's a hint of sadness and melancholy to it, but another one of my favorites.
9. Mesmerized-One of the more sappier songs, but emotionally appealing.
10. Bridges-This upbeat performance is one of the last harder songs on the album.
11. Learn You Inside Out-The lyrics to this song are powerful, and anyone can take it and use it as they like. Great song!
12. One of Jason's rare solo efforts come alive in "Storm." A remake from "Diff's Lucky Day", this song is powerful, and finishes the album in awe.

"Who We Are" moves in a different direction for Lifehouse. The band is changing, and Jason Wade is becoming more spiritually connected to his music. Definitely worth every cent!
