Alternative Rock, 2000
My eldest granddaughter has grown up when it comes to her music tastes. No more pretty boy pop stuff like N’Sync and Backstreet Boys. Nope, she now wants to listen to the “adult” pretty boy alternative wannabe rock groups like Matchbox Twenty, Creed, and this latest Creed clone, Lifehouse, with its pretty boys in the band.
Musically, No Name Face is indistinguishable from the likes of Creed or even Pearl Jam. Grungy guitar riffs where our pretty boy lead singer growls out listenable but forgettable tunes like that single Hanging by a Moment. It’s all bland and lightweight – easy come, easy go, really.
Think of Lifehouse as a “heavy” group for kiddies who have yet to discover the real hardcore stuff.
