This album is okay by Stapp's standards, but i'm sorry folks, it just proves that Creed were right to disband and reform as Alter Bridge. Their album One Day Remains kicks this latest Scott Stapp offering into a cocked hat.

The Hard Way is a blandish rock track, and tracks like You Will Soar reek of age, boredom and same-old same-old naffness. There's even a Michael Bolton soundalike track featuring a sort of gospel backing, which is Stapps attempt at a modern day version of With Arms Wide Open, but to me its vomit inducing.

It misses Mark Tremonti on guitars, it misses the rest of Creed all over it - and the only fitting thing on the album is Stapp singing "I Found Out The Hard Way". Yes Scott, you certainly did. You found out that while Creed were a top band, Alter Bridge are far better and you're left alone in the rock wasteland concocting wishy-washy stuff like this.

The fact its got drums and guitars warrants 3 stars for me - but other than that i'm not impressed at all. The tracks are all to similar, too short and there are only 10 songs, but given the standard of them, 10 is too many anyway.

the more i go through life i can relate to scott stapps lyrics more and more. following on from his creed days, although not that much like creed, this is still an amazing record and a joy to witness, even if it is on the short side in my opinion, being about 40 mins, but still some quality music, when theres so much rubbish out there at the moment. my advice is that if you think you might like this album but aren't too sure go to his official website where you can listen to pretty sizeable chunks of the songs, then if you like it get it from amazon-cheapest on the net- you surely wont be dissapointed. in places this albums got balls, feeling, and a lot of quality. Also ive noticed that compared to creed in this album stapp seems to get a bit more worked up in terms of his voice, which albeit strange at first, is quite cool! top quality album from one of todays top quality singers.

evolved from creed fantastically, will always miss the rest of the group they played some amazing stuff but this album just oozes pure class.

The first solo release by Scott Stapp is a terrific CD! His writing has only gotten better over the years. The songs here are diverse, uplifting, and heart-felt. There is certainly at least one song on this CD that everyone can identify with and relate to - at LEAST one. This CD is proof that Stapp is back and better than ever, there are no bad songs on it, the only wanting his fans will have is wanting for more of his songs. The people who thought Stapp could not succeed without Creed should take back their words, this CD is proof that not only will he succeed; he will soar higher than ever. It was a long wait for this CD, hopefully the wait won't be as long for the next one.

I don't normally write these reviews, but after reading other reviews slagging Scott in favour of Alter Bridge, I just had to jump in. Although I love Mark Tremonti and the rest of Creed's playing, it was Stapps voice that made Creed. Okay, it's perhaps not as technically perfect as Alter Bridge's Myles Kennedy but it has a hell of a lot more character and feeling and most of the songs on Alter Bridges CD are quite forgettable in comparrison to this album. Very memorable songs sung with a lot of feeling by one of the most distinctive rock voices ever. Can't wait for the next one Scott.

The first solo foray from the ex Creed singer with a hint at bitternes over the brek up (Fight Song,Hard Way). He certainly lets you know it's a solo project by putting the vocals way up in the mix and if you see the video for The Great Divide he's the only person you actually see! That said it's ok for a first album though Alter Bridge is much better and Myles Kennedy is a far superior singer. A real downside is that he really pushes his religious beliefs in the lyrics which obviously mean alot to him but should be left out of music. All in all not not bad.
