I had the opportunity to listen to Scott Stapp's new solo album titled Proof of Life. The song titles from the album are Slow Suicide, Who I Am, Proof of Life, New Day Coming, Only One, Break Out, Hit Me More, Jesus was a Rock Star, What Would Love Do, Crash, and Dying to Live.
It was interesting to see how the lyrics of some of the songs follow along with some of the experiences he talked about in his book. For example, he talks about living a lie and falling down 10 floors, which expressed some of his feelings and his experience of falling from the hotel balcony. I enjoyed reading the lyrics of the songs and thinking about how they relate to stories from the book.
Some of the songs were a lot harder rock than I usually listen to, but there were a couple that I just love! Only One and What Would Love Do are great songs! Of course, Only One is like a power ballad, and What Would Love Do is a beautiful ballad. I also have to say that while I was listening to the CD, I talked to my teenager about it and she was surprised it was from a Christian artist. She noted that it is different from what is normally on the radio station we listen to, and she liked it very much. So I want to note that the album gets a gold star from the younger crowd!
Finally, Stapp still has the beautiful voice I remember from Creed. If you enjoyed his work from the past, you will enjoy this album. If you are young enough that you did not know him as front man of Creed, you might really enjoy this solo album as well.
I received a copy of this CD from Tyndale House Publishers in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.

I remember his first album and I liked a couple of the songs on it. I listened to a portion of a couple of songs and went ahead and bought the album. I have been listening to it all day. A major step up from his last one. The songs rock, and they will reach inside of you and expose parts of pain and allow you to relive great moments of joy. Highly recommend this anyone that enjoys great works of art. Way to go Scott Stapp.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
