CREED picture
Creed is an American hard rock/post-grunge band formed in 1995 in Tallahassee, Florida. They released three albums between 1997 and 2001, before disbanding in 2004. Singer Scott Stapp started a solo career while guitarist Mark Tremonti and drummer Scott Phillips recruited former bassist Brian Marshall (who had left the band in 2000 and was replaced with Brett Hestla) to form the hard rock/alternative metal band Alter Bridge.

Creed reformed in 2009 and released their fourth album, Full Circle. Upon their reformation Brian Marshall became their bassist again. Creed had plans to release a fifth album in 2012 but it was eventually cancelled due to personal issues between Stapp and Tremonti. They are on indefinite hiatus as of 2012.

Now this is the period of Creed where I took interest. Mainly cause from this album they released 3 sucussfel singles, which had frequent radio play and had great music videos.

Now Creed's big major sucess came before this album, when they release their most radio freindly song "With Arms Wide Open", a cheesy Christian rock ballad thingy. Now this album seems to have some of that sucess rub of them, with more ballad like songs, but their hard rock roots have not been abandoned, because their is some really rocking moments on this album (in fact their heaviest song is on this album).

Now compared to Full Circle, this album is a breath of fresh air, and prooves that these guys actually mattered for a while.

One of the most striking things I found, which after listening to Full Circle, was that I didn't feel like turning it off at any point, Ok, every song isn't perfect, but they were still listenable (unlike the stuff on that abomination of a new release of theirs).

The album is a bit of a change from their earlier stuff, and looking back at their discography, this seems to be their most experimental album. I mean this album isn't as straightforward as the rest of their stuff. Their really is a bit of everything on this, but its still listenable enough throughout. The band line up had changed, and their was some turbulence, so some of that anger and emotion was reflected. Scott's voice at times can be a bit too "Scott Stapp", but at other times, he does some great vocal work. And his lyrics are quite good at times too.

1. Bullets - This is their heaviest song. I was really suprised when I heard this song, cause it actually made like Creed. The song does have some Metallica like moments, but it's still pretty unique for the band. Great music video too. 10/10

2. Freedom Fighter - Another quite rocking song on the album. Maybe these guys haven't completely lost touch with their roots. 7/10

3. Who's Got My Back - This is a pretty interesting moment on the album. Quite atmospheirc and proggy at times. But to be honest, it doesn't really lead to much at times. But at times it does gratify itself to be pretty enjoyable. 7/10

4. Signs - A quite bluesy riff, with some nice grooves. Vocals are a bit chesssy, but hey, its Creed, what did you expect. 7/10

5. One Last Breath - Ok, this is a bit of a cheesy moment, but to be honest, I really like this song. I think out of all of their ballads this is their best one. And Scott's vocals are pretty cool in this song, and he hits some really interesting notes and tones. 10/10

6 My Sacrifice - Ok, this song is more cheesy, but to be honest, even then, its a good enough song. Ok it's funny, but its still enjoyable. 7/10

7. Stand Here With Me - Probabbly one of the best songs on the album. Great chorus, and interesting arrangement throughout. I secretly really like this song. 10/10

8. Weathered - This song is pretty cool and pretty impressive for Creed.. It has a pretty cool chorus, and some the lyrics are pretty cool. Their is an odd vocal riff I like in this song. 9/10

9. Hide - Maybe a bit too Christian rock at times, but to be honest, it is realy catchy and has some nice lovely moments, and then moments with some nice distorted guitars. 9/10

10. Don't Stop Dancing - This song is a bit silly I guess, but its nice enough. Not filler exactly, just not my thing. 6/10

11. Lullaby - An odd way to end the album. I don't completely get it, but its pretty, I guess. 6/10

CONCLUSION: I really wasn't expecting much from this album...mainly cause...its Creed. But this suprised me. As a Creed album, this is great...and as an album in general, its pretty great.

6.9/10

This review is going to be a little different. Usually when I review albums I give the good ones really good scores, and the bad ones not so good ones, and sometimes I'm even generous. But then something like this comes your way...and you have to make changes.

Now Creed are a bit of a joke to me. Their just so silly and funny to me, but they take themselves very serious...which only makes it funnier. Now don't get me wrong, even behind the funny side, good songs and good albums come now and then (the Weathered album review I'll do soon will proove that). So when I heard Creed we're getting back together, I laughed. When I heard they were making a new album, I laughed, whenever I bought it, I laughed, whenever I listened to it, I laughed, but not in the way I was expecting.

As you can see from the score I gave this album...it's bad. It's beyond bad actually, it's just ewwww. It's funny though, but its still bad. To be honest I wasn't expecting much from this album, but I was expecting more than this.

The album starts off ok. The first song is listenable and quite enjoyable. The second one is okay. And then after that it just gets boring...and more boring...AND MORE BORING...until its not funny anymore. Seriously, I at least could have a laugh with Creed, but even now this is just wrong.

I think Creed have seen their time on this planet. Seriously, whilst listening to this I was just thinking "and these are the guys who are in Alter Bridge...Jesus Christ, how can changing your lead singer make a band suck so much"

I'm not even gonna go into the detail of the songs, cause the only good ones are the first 2, and even then, their not the best.

CONCLUSION: Is this the worst album I've ever heard...no...is it one of them. Oh yes it is! Seriously, buy Weathered and pretend that these guys have broke up. (Even Scott Stapps solo stuff was better) I was gonna give this half a star, but cause the first 2 songs aren't the worse...i'm being generous)

CHRISTIAN ROCK SUCKS!
