Maybe Lifehouse lead singer and former church rocker Jason Wade buries subliminal Christian messages in his lyrics, but on Stanley Climbfall, the tuneful follow-up to 2000’s ”No Name Face,” he sounds less like a messenger from Christ than a messenger from Seattle, circa 1995.

Standouts like ”Spin,” ”Take Me Away,” and ”Out of Breath” are pure grunge lite; guitars crunch in the verses and soar through the choruses while Wade uses his Vedderesque baritone to dress the usual word salad of sadness, alienation, and overcoming sadness and alienation. Charming harmlessness.
