Overview

Avalon's first studio release in three years features two new voices -- soulful power-belter Greg Long has chucked a moderately successful solo career to join his wife, Janna Long, in this Christian pop supergroup, while Melissa Greene, who joined in 2002, gets her first shot at recording a full Avalon studio project. With founding member Jody McBrayer rounding out the lineup, Avalon seem poised to resume their place at the top of the Christian pop heap, as any listen to The Creed makes clear. The shot of new blood makes Avalon vocally stronger than ever, the four deftly blending into soaring harmonies while each voice remains distinctive enough to carry a lead, too. Greg Long adds a soulful rock edge to Avalon's slick pop sound, most notably on the lush, feel-good track "I Wanna Be with You." Meanwhile, The Creed is deep with powerful testimonies of faith, wrapped in a variety of musical dressing: There's the anthemic title track, a spine-tingler if there ever was one; the playful, funky dance number "Overjoyed"; and the moving ballad "Renew Me." As the first project featuring a new lineup, The Creed bodes well for Avalon's stellar future.

If you like Christian pop music, this is deffinately for you, no doubt. This is one of those groups where every single member is amazingly talented , unlike other groups where they ave one lead singer and you never notice the others. Just wonderful. Especially Jody McBrayer's "You Were There"
