Not only is "No Name Face" Lifehouse's best album, it's also one of the best albums I've ever heard. It's almost impossible to compare anything to it; it's just in a league of its own. That said, "Who We Are" does do its best to catch up to its excellent predecessor.
There's not one track on this album that I dislike. The argued-over "The Joke" is the strongest, most original song on here, and the most musically interesting track I've heard in a while. It's fusion of a rock chorus and jazz-like verses give it an exotic feel, and its lyrics are, at the same time, heart-breaking and angering. They took a gamble with this song, and it pays off.
The ballads, which I've missed in the last two CDs, are strong and meaningful, especially with Wade's gorgeous, "The Storm." While many others say that the last songs on the cd seem to be indistinguishable, I think they're unique and catchy in their own way, and very lyrically different. Wade's songwriting skills never cease to amaze me.
