This CD isn't as hard-hitting as their previous album, My Own Prison, but has some of the same energy and power as it in many of the tracks in this album. Creed definetly is a sensitive band, as their music is just their lives reflected from what is going on, as their previous album was about finding religion, this one is about trying to find yourself in life-and the beginnings of fatherhood-to trying to survive in the great wildfire we call life. I don't know why so many people insult Creed, they are a great and creative band. The only problem with this CD is that you get tired of it really easily, especially Higher, a song they played on the radio all the time and still do on many radio stations.
Creeds sound does sound a lot like Pearl Jam, but that doesn't make them a Pearl Jam rip-off, it just tells you that a lot of people are like that, and it's hard for people to understand that. This CD could have been a bit longer, each song especially. My favorite aspect of this CD is that their not heavily on religion-no, if you think so you entirely missed the point of their sound-but instead spiritualism, the concenpt of what will be our future, I can garuntee that.
