Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

The first single to be taken from Whatever Gets You Through The Day, the Lighthouse Family's third album, is a cover of Nina Simone's "(I Wish I Knew How it Would Be To Be) Free"--crossed, bootleg stylee, with U2's "One". The refrain has got the outfit's signature feel-good pop written into its very heart and soul, and confirms that the Family have remained true to the sound that made them one of the biggest pop acts of the late 1990s. Although Whatever... is less schmaltzy than their last two offerings, songs of hope, light and humanity are at the core of its message. "Life's a Dream" is pure Caribbean beach cabana stuff, all lilting guitar riffs down on the sand; "Happy", a tribute to the filtered disco loops of the French house sound and, while the title track is perhaps not catchy enough to take it to number one, it's simple approach and harmonic builds defines the Lighthouse Family as we know them. --Ruby Tuesday

By "doa83"
Format:Audio CD
So Lighthouse Family return after about three years since their previous release "Postcards from Heaven" with such teriffic pop-tunes as "Raincloud" and "High". On "Whatever gets you through the day" the duo is back, and although the style is still catchy pop, with a tip of soul and gospel, the songs are somewhat more gloomy and melancholy. Tunde Baiyewu's voice is still penetrating and charismatic, but the music and the lyrics have taken a darker turn. A product of their new style is heard on the opening track, "Run", a jazzy song giving you a quiet flow. And continuing that way, the CD produces great ballads, good pop-song and melancholic tracks, making fans love the new style. "Whatever get you through the day" hasn't reallu got any weak spots, but listeners must be equiped with patience. The title track is top notch, and on their third album, Lighthouse Family are more experimenting and fresh as ever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the wait! 21 Nov 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
At last! After what has seemed like an eternity, the Lighthouse Family are back, and the new album doesn't disappoint.It's instantly recognisable as
their work, and a couple of the tracks sound vaguely familiar, but the whole album is more subdued than 'Ocean Drive' and 'Postcards from Heaven'. The new single 'I wish I knew how it would feel to be free' is catchy, but after a few playings of the CD, I feel it's eclipsed by the melodic tracks 'You're a star' and 'You always want what you haven't got'. It's well worth the wait!

5.0 out of 5 stars This album is near perfect - do NOT miss it. 24 Feb 2002
By Fossil
Format:Audio CD
How good is this album? Well if we could award 6 stars..! Every track has a catchy tune, while the lyrics are outstanding in their simplicity. I defy anyone who buys this album to be disappointed. If you've heard the singles or know the Lighthouse Family from their previous releases you should try this. And if you've not tried them before then START NOW!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Album by the Lighthouse Family 12 Jan 2002
Format:Audio CD
This ranks alongside the best albums this year. It is the most consistent album I have listened to this year, every song is great and I was not surprised to find that 'Run' is going to be the next song to be released from it as it is first class. Other potential classics include 'Happy', 'You always want what you haven't got' and 'wish' as they are the most catchy of all of the songs. If you buy this album you will not be disappointed at all! Well done Lighthouse Family, Top Class album!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lighthouse Family Back With A Bang! 19 Nov 2001
Format:Audio CD
I have waited three years for this album. In that time Paul and Tunde have developed their sound - this is such a relaxing album. The first single (I Wish I Knew How It Feels To Be) Free/One is a fine, fine song.
Buy this album, listen and chill with a bottle of a wine. LHF fans will NOT be dissapointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant return by Lighthouse Family. 12 Dec 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This cd is as good as the last one and I have a feeling it will turn out to be the best ever by the Lighthouse family. I feel the single release is one of the weaker tracks on the cd, which shows the strength of the content.
I like Run, Happy, End of the Sky. Best tracks though are Wish closely followed by Whatever Gets You Through The Day.
Very impressive stuff, I will be listening to this for a long time.
