No Name Face
Released: Oct 2000
Label: DreamWorks Geffen
The first hit here, "Hanging by a Moment," was the anthem that brought Lifehouse commercial-radio ubiquity, and the rest of the band's debut follows suit with plenty of gruff, mid-tempo ponderings on life's meaning and reverb-soaked atmospheres. To their credit, songs like "Somebody Else's Song" and "Everything" are a sight more sensitive than the grunge brutes next to whom they're too often filed, but when vocalist Jason Wade moans a boiler-plate one-liner like "you're everything," somehow he seems to almost mean it.
