7. Almeria (2012)

“I cannot really choose a favorite because a majority of the songs are outstanding for different reasons and in different ways. The standouts for me are: Nobody Listen, Slow Motion, Only You’re The One, Where I Come From, Barricade, Lady Day, and Pins and Needles. These songs are all so different, but all incredible. One last thing: this album is very mellow and understated, in a way. I kept expecting them to rock out at certain points, like they have in the past, but that element just isn’t present here.”

6. Stanley Climbfall (2002)

“To my listening ears, this one explores the more alternative style of rock than did the first album- it’s softer toned and not quite as melancholy. The overall tone isn’t as hard, and the tracks are varied in their styles and approaches. Track 8- Just Another Name- is by far the catchiest track on the album. Something about it just draws me in and controls my hand to turn up the volume automatically, if you know what I mean”

5. Out Of The Wasteland (2015)

“In “Out of the Wasteland,” the band Lifehouse takes direct aim at contemporary American culture and pathos and delivers a sound that is surprisingly real, current, and can one say gritty without being anachronistic. With titles like “One for the Pain,” “Runaways,” “Firing Squad,” and “Hurt this Way,” the album is not exactly milk and cookies on a Saturday night and yet the overall sound has more to do with honey than vinegar. It is the flavor of a film by Tennessee Williams, poignant, emotional, slightly dysfunctional but always reeling with hope and a free-wheeling desire.”

4. Smoke & Mirrors (2010)

“I’m someone who has casually enjoyed Lifehouse’s singles since the beginning, but the only full-length album that I listened to prior to this was Stanley Climbfall. That record is very good, but it’s sound is extremely loud and abrasive. The guitars are layered and produced to where it’s exhausting to listen to. The great thing about Smoke & Mirrors is that it keeps its edge and its excellent songwriting while being very listenable. My ears love listening to this album all the way through.”

3. Lifehouse (2005)

“The standout single “You and Me” was a good choice. It is a ballad but that is usually what appeals and draws people in yet there are many songs on the album that surpass the single such as “Blind” which is an ode to lead vocalist Jason Wade’s dead father. It is easily one of the most powerful and emotional songs I have had the pleasure of hearing. There are so many standouts on this album “Come Back Down”, “All in All”, “Into the Sun”. This album is a deep and soothing listening experience and gets you away from the world.”

2. Who We Are (2007)

“”Who We Are” is not so much a question here as it is a statement, and much of the material seems to say that Lifehouse is now a solid, coherent, gimmick-free rock band. Most of this stuff is arena rock – powerful choruses, and songs made for you to turn up on the car radio – I mean, listen to the first single “First Time” – there is no way a song like that could sound bad on a loud radio, or while listened to on headphones. These guys know what they’re doing.”

1. No Name Face (2000)

“The music is amazing, and the emotional depth of the album is impressive – especially considering the youth of the band members. At first listen, you may not realize that this is a Christian band, and that the songs are religious. The beauty of the album, and the songwriting, is that you can take each song so many different ways and relate them to your own life – either religiously or otherwise. Hanging by a Moment is a perfect example.”
