As a big Creed fan I was both excited and apprehensive about the release of Full Circle. It was great news that they were back together and making music, but the speed with which the album was made left me wondering if it was going to be a cash in.

However, while not exactly a perfect album it is far better than I could have hoped for. Very few songs miss their mark. Scott Stapp still writes the same introspective lyrics, and delivers them with his customary Eddie Vedderesque growl. And Mark Tremonti still exhibits a great mix of melodic and muscular guitar work, backed up more than satisfactorily by the bass work of Brian Marhsall and the drumming of Scott Philips.

The album starts with 'Overcome', a rousing stadium rock number and their first single. It's a decent slice of heavy rock and roll and sets up the tone well for the album. It continues onto Bread of Shame, which is in my opinion the worst song on the album, and possible candidate for worst Creed song ever. It just seems like an assault of sound that never really progresses anywhere, with possibly one of the most obnoxious choruses I have ever heard.

From this low point however, the album picks up and never really lets go. 'A Thousand Faces' 'Fear' 'On My sleeve' 'Full Circle' 'Good Fight' and 'The Song you sing' are all hard hitting yet tuneful songs with great hooks that never let up. 'Rain' and 'Away in Silence' are both hugely uplifting slices of hit ready radio rock, which you won't be able to not foot tap or nod your head to.

The albums best song though is the superb Time. Stapp alternates brillantly between soft emotional croon, and anguished growl. It is very emotionally stirring, backed up fantasticly by a mix of mid tempo electric and acoustic guitar work from Tremonti.

Back in 2004 when Creed broke up, rock had lost one it's most shining glories. Stapp went solo, Tremonti, Phillips & Marshall formed Alter Bridge with Myles Kennedy. With success varied, a creed reunion was always likely, fast forward to Autumn 2009 and "Full Circle," Creed's fourth album showcases some of the band's heaviest material, twindled with some crisp ballads.
Stapp is on top vocal form, Tremonti's riff's and pounding solo's set the tone, opening rocker "Overcome" with its uptempo melody and infectious chorus ticks every hard rock cliche going, welcome back Creed indeed.
Creed maintains their hard rock approach on tracks "Bread Of Shame," "Suddenly," and "Fear," the latter being the best track, it sounds very similar to the music that Alter Bridge have made.
It's when "Full Circle" begins to mellow that Creed's music becomes more mainstream, radio friendly rocker and second single "Rain" has radio hit written all over it, as does moody ballad "Away In Silence."
Elsewhere, Creed sing about their own musical journey on the title track, beautifully followed by the albums most somber moment, "Time." "This time I have nothing left to lose, I'm stuck the second hand won't move, it's about time that I speak my mind." Maybe a reference to Stapp's own wishes for Creed to get back together way before they actually did.
Overall, "Full Circle" is an immense album. Creed have already confirmed a full world tour in 2010 in support of "Full Circle," I for one will be first in the queue for any UK dates they announce.
Best Tracks: "Overcome" "Rain" "Away In Silence" "Time"

While I do not disagree with most other reviewers, Full Circle is not awesome but is not at all rubbish.

Firstly, if you don't like Creed this is not going to change your mind. It is generic and wholly unthoughtful (like most Creed albums) and it does not deviate from the normal stadium pleasing, rousing grungesmithery of earlier albums. If you want experimental or edgy - Creed aint your band (the closest they've come is the first few tracks of Weathered - experimental for them). If you like Staind, Shinedown, possibly Alice in Chains, Daughtry et al and you haven't already stumbled upon Creed then... enjoy.

Secondly, the above may sound like I have no time for this type of music. I am aware of its failings musicly, but that doesn't mean that I do not appreciate it. Experimental has its place but there's nothing better than a huge blast of emotional post-grunge to raise the spirits and sooth the soul!

Lastly - Full Circle is a very passable album indeed. It is on a par with their last 2 albums, however there are no instant classics, like My Sacrifice or Higher. The opener, Overcome, is almost a contender and it even takes a few listens to really get it, but it'll stay with you for a while once the chorus wraps itself around your ears. Possibly the most brutal and energetic track on the album and a fiercely excellent opener.10/10

I agree with one of the reviewers here concerning Bread of Shame - it's not that it's bad exactly, it's just that there was no reason for it to be on the album. No - it's bad. 3/10

A Thousand Faces is middleing Creed fare but you can feel them picking up the pace a bit after the dire Bread...6.5/10

Suddenly, I have to disagree with one reviewer here, is one of the best tracks on the album.
