The abiding mystery surrounding Lifehouse is - how can a band that has been making music of an incredibly high standard for over ten years, be virtually unknown in this country? Five albums in and they continue to produce songs of such emotive, profound and resonant quality that it seems an injustice that they remain unheralded. The song writing is never less than thought provoking and Jason Wade's voice is full of soulful yearning and introspective lament, that perfectly conveys the urgency of the lyric. The arrangements as always are tight - but when you have such a powerful vocalist as Wade, instrumentation can be quite sparse as the vocal is frequently compelling as on songs like "Is that what it is" and the sublime "From where you are."

Else where, there is the radio friendly "Halfway gone" and the extremely catchy title track "Smoke and mirrors", which contribute to a more even effort than the band's previous release "Who we are". I would recommend the special edition with the four bonus tracks including the transcendent "Everything" and three other new tracks. This album, without question - is Adult/Alternative rock at its very best from a band who create superb music deserving of a much wider audience.

In anticipation of Lifehouse's impending return to the UK in October I thought I would write a review for their new release Smoke and Mirrors. Having been a fan since their first release, No Name Face, it has been interesting to see them progress as a band and I thought it would be very difficult for the band to surpass their previous outing Who We Are. The album begins with a song that will get you hooked instantly. All In, their current single in the States, is a fantastic, knee-stomping song which you will struggle not to sing along to when you know the lyrics, it is superb. The other main stand out track for me is It Is What It Is, a stunning song which I would argue isn't really in the LIfehouse mould but it is delivered perfectly with Jason Wade's vocals sounding incredible on this heart-rending number. Some would probably disagree about my other favourite songs, Wrecking Ball, sung by Bryce Soderberg is a refreshing song which adds something a bit different to the album which we haven't seen before. It's, by no means, a groundbreaking song but it is a solid effort. The same can also be said for In Your Skin which possesses fantastic lyrics.
On the negative side, there are a number of songs on the album which don't sit well with me. Nerve Damage is a strange one which can get a little annoying. Had Enough is bland and doesn't really go anywhere. Smoke and Mirrors is also unfortunately quite a dull song.

On the whole I would definitely recommend buying the album if you are a hardcore fan or if you are not sure, buy individual songs.

"Smoke & Mirrors," Lifehouse's fifth studio album offers more of the same guitar based pop rock that the group are known for.
Lead singer Jason Wade moves us through the melodies on here well enough, it'll gain Lifehouse no new fans but existing ones will find themselves singing along very nicely.
To be fair to Lifehouse what they do they do pretty well, opening track "All In" pumps through in a similar fashion to "Disarray" from their previous album, acoustic ballad "From Where You Are" is the saddest song the band have written before flirting with an electronic sound on "Here Tomorrow Gone Today."
It's in between times though that you will find this albums strongest moments, for me they are title track "Smoke & Mirrors," "Had Enough" and "Falling In," the latter providing the albums catchiest melody, a sure fire radio hit.
Nothing on "Smoke & Mirrors" will set your pulses racing, in truth it's all music you've heard a million times before and you'll either love it or hate it.
Excusing the pun, (see track five title) take it for what it is and you may just find "Smoke & Mirrors" to be a rather pleasing listen.

Bonus Tracks:

Once again depending on how or where you purchased this CD you will have certain bonus tracks, in this case none of the four on here offer anything really special, same old trusted pop rock formula, the best of which is "All That I'm Asking For."
The live studio version of "Everything" is an interesting addition, (the song is very popular with Christian churches due to its lyrical content) the original can be found on their debut CD from 2000's "No Name Face."
