Scott Stapp, the man everyone seems to love to hate. From Creed to his solo work, he gets no respect which is an utter shame as I think people miss the beauty in his songs and his voice. The man has been at the top of the world when Creed was at its heights and he has been at rock bottom with his public battles with bi-polar disorder and addiction. This album is reminder of what he has been through and badge of how far he has come.
His 2013 album, ‘Proof of Life’, is one of my favorite albums and my favorite of his so when I heard about his third solo album, I was really excited. And did the album live up to expectations, well, lets check it out and see.
The vinyl is a single LP which has all the 12 songs you can get in Apple Music or iTunes. The last 2 being listed as bonus tracks. Being that many songs on one piece of vinyl, the sound is still fantastic, crisp and clear.
The album jacket is a gatefold and inside the gatefold you get all the lyrics to each song, his thank you list and all the credits on the album. It is nice to be actually able to read the lyrics because sometimes they get jammed on one side of the album sleeve and they are too hard to read.
