My Own Prison is much more angry and deep than Human Clay ever wanted to be. It's primary focus is the anger that the lead singer Scott went through in his life about religion and life. That message is clearly shown on the cover, which shows a man cowering in a corner.
The greatest songs on this album are 'My Own Prison', 'One', 'What's This Life For?', and 'Torn'. The rest of the songs are good, but not as good as them.
Mark Tremonti is the guitarist behind the recordings, and his style in playing shows in the songs. This album is for those grunge or just plain rock fans, especially the ones in their thirties that have lost their way out of religion and are trying to find their place in life.
