Creed burst out of Florida with 1997's My Own Prison, a dark but commercial debut reminiscent of the early-'90s Seattle sound. Creed's moody guitar grunge and ardent lyrics, coupled with singer Scott Stapp's passionate vocals, helped My Own Prison sell millions. Human Clay demonstrates that this likable quartet hasn't messed with success; they turn in a sophomore outing rife with evocative moodiness, soaring guitars, and a dark, roiling, intense vibe. "Beautiful" is but one of the winners on this strong 11-song CD. Haunting and indeed beautiful, the track is more delicate and seductive than most heard here, as is another lilting and mysterious entry, "Never Die," which boasts some Middle Eastern accents. "Higher" is typical Creed--safe, emotive guitar rock for the masses, but with a slight edge. Memorable hooks, Soundgarden-like guitars, and Vedder-like vocals make Human Clay at once compelling and effectively redundant.

This being Creed's best selling album. At 11 million sold. Its a great cd. Features the hit "what if" a headbanger song,hard grunge rock."Higher" one of Creed's biggest hits and shows some great lyrics,like seriously.I think God told Stapp to write that.The other sinlge would be "With Arms Wide Open" Great melody.Written about Stapps son.Big hit,not with me but everyone else thought ti was awesome.
