Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
It's been clear for quite some time that Scott Stapp and company believe that you've gotta say yes to every excess -- at least on record -- and this third album certainly follows in that tradition. Naysayers will find it windy and overblown, but to the ever-growing mass of true believers, the unapologetic grandiosity of Weathered should prove both uplifting and propulsive. For the most part, Stapp and company remain true to the themes they explored on their first two multi-platinum efforts.

It's been clear for quite some time that Scott Stapp and company believe that you've gotta say yes to every excess -- at least on record -- and this third album certainly follows in that tradition. Naysayers will find it windy and overblown, but to the ever-growing mass of true believers, the unapologetic grandiosity of Weathered should prove both uplifting and propulsive. For the most part, Stapp and company remain true to the themes they explored on their first two multi-platinum efforts. The singer retains his knack for conveying, then assuaging, spiritual doubts (on anthemic numbers like "Torn" and "One"), while turning on just enough full-on rock mojo to get bodies moving to the beat of "Stand" and "One Last Breath." Weathered does find Creed exploring some new ground. On the surprisingly flinty "Bullets," there's more than a hint of nu-metal dynamic, while the extended "Who's Got My Back?" lists rather improbably into raga-rock territory. Love him or hate him, there's no denying Stapp's charisma -- or his willingness to sing every note as if it were his last. For those who think bigger is better, Creed is as good as it gets.
All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
The week Creed released their fourth album, Weathered, lead vocalist Scott Stapp mentioned in an interview that they didn't really care about the widespread critical disdain for his group, since Led Zeppelin wasn't appreciated either -- not until they released their fourth album in 1971, that is. Stapp's assessment is a little off; Zeppelin never really enjoyed good reviews by most of the rock-crit establishment -- at least until 1988 when Zep-mania gripped the nation and even prompted Rolling Stone to put Robert Plant on the cover -- but his sentiment is right on target since he's saying Creed isn't a band for the critics, they simply do what they do and the proof that they're right is in the millions of fans. Well, Creed certainly isn't a critic's band, but not because critics hate heavy rock -- grunge sorta blew that bugaboo out of the water when it became mandatory to take anybody with heavy guitars seriously -- but because Creed simply works very earnestly within a tradition without ever expanding it, without ever adding humor or even cracking a smile. R.E.M. and U2 may have had the weight of the world on their shoulders during the first Bush era, but they lightened up occasionally. Creed never does. They are a very serious band, realizing that the world is very serious, so music is a serious business, a way of expressing their faith, passion, yearning, and love -- all things that are quite serious so they should be treated seriously. Their hearts are in the right place -- let it never be said that they're only in this for the money or the fame; they even advertise Stapp's With Arms Wide Open Foundation charity in the liner notes -- but the earnestness in their approach is magnified by their resolutely unimaginative neo-grunge. Try as they may -- and they do, bringing in the Tallahasee Boys' Choir for "Don't' Stop Dancing," incorporating a Cherokee Indian prayer on "Who's Got My Back," sprinkling the album with some keyboards, and stretching out to near-epic lengths occasionally -- they don't break from that template, and to all but the hardcore, this is simply another Creed record, one that has the same faults or virtues, depending on your viewpoint. And that's why Creed isn't Led Zeppelin, even though both were slagged by critics, say what you may, Zeppelin changed on each of those first four records, where Creed has stayed the same. (This does get the honorary Fred Durst's Chocolate Starfish award for worst album cover of the year, however.)

    Scott Stapp and the tag-team track stars!

    Do you know the muffin man? Well, he plays in a little band some know as CREED, and has super-sexy leather pants! And Mark Tremendous shows that monitor who's the boss! Anyway, they play rock music with some serious edge, but they're really sensitive at the same time, kind of like the mother wolverine. This is the best album of the year, if not of all antiquity and future generations! Have you ever heard a guitar being shredded by a rock GOD, while Zeus wails his voice so hard that Hercules is struck down by a killer bolt of freakin' lightning? Not unless you've heard this album, you haven't! Simply put: it rocks. Rocks so, so hard.

    Weak.

    This is the worst Creed album so far. But don't misquote me, there are some good songs but it's an album with the weakest ending in the history of music. Pat Boone could have written a better album closer.

    Creed kicks butt

    This cd kicks butt. i havent gotten a cd in 4ever that i could listen to over and over again like this one. bullets is kind of a hard intro but a overall good song. stand here with me just gives u a clue to what life is all about. #5 is a really good song and has pretty instrumental (guitar) in it and opens you up. Weathered the hit song is very emotional. when ur listening to and tryin to fall asleep 'Lullaby' puts u to bed.

    Great but Not as Great

    I was quite dissapointed when I heard Weathered . I was expecting more when I heard the first single My Sacrifice . It sounded more radio friendly instead of agressive and in your face rock . Some songs are still like the Creed we knew in Human Clay and My Own Prison : Bullets , Freedom Fighter , Who's Got My Back , One Last Breath and My Sacrifice . Weathered is still a good album .

    Beautiful, emotional, honest

    This album is definitely worth listening to. The songs are easy to relate to and brutally honest, showing a progression of emotions from beginning to end. My favorites are "One last Breath," "Don't stop dancing," "Stand here with me," and "Hide."

    Weathered, A Creed Album

    Weathered is Creed's third album since their first, My Own Prison. The songs, including My Sacrifice, are beautifully written and well played. Many of the songs on this album are hard like Bullets and Freedom Fighter. Others, such as Lullaby and Don't Stop Dancing are soft. While My Sacrifice is a very well-known Creed song off this album, you may like other songs if you listen long enough.

    ROCK ON CREED!!!

    This album rocks!!! What else is there to say? The riffs, the lyrics, all of it is simply amazing! "Bullets" kicks azz and "Lullaby" is perfect to relax to. "Who's Got My Back?" is a great, epic rock song. Every song on this album rocks on CD and live! Rock on!!!

    Creed reigns supreme!

    Once you hear the opening track "bullets",you know that your in for an exiting journey through the minds of creed.Weathered explores territory somewhat different from creed's other two albums,however never fails to satisfy the listener.With it's share of crafty metal,classic rock vibes and power ballads,weathered is definitly an instant classic.Congragulations creed,you did it again.

    And the hits just keep on coming...

    "Weathered" is Creed's best album to date. In this album they continue their almost signature style of integrating serious overtones and thoughts with modern rock, which is what got them so famous to begin with. Some argue what this album is 'more of the same', but I found that Creed does explore some new ground and get in a good amount of variety in this latest release. Creed manages to throw in a few new twists like including an Indian prayer in "Who's Got My Back?" and a choir in "Don't Stop Dancing". This album will please those who demand volume and intensity in their music, as proven by the sheer power in "Bullets", or "Stand Here With Me." "My Sacrifice" and "Weathered" (the song) won't disappoint those who prefer the style of deep lyrics that made Creed legendary. "Weathered" does more than live up to Creed's tradition of 'rock with a purpose'--- it expands on it.

    The Good Stuff

    I think that this is the best album that creed has put out. The songs on the CD are the kind that really make you listen, just to get the deeper meaning of the lyrics. The songs are mostly about real life experiences. The songs have hit home for me and most likely alot of other people like me. This CD would make a really good present to any person that tends to take things very literal, and likes to evaluate what people are saying. This CD is a good choice to settle down to and just relax, it's calming.

    40 Year Old Corporate Type LOVES Creed!

    This closet rocker loves Creed's music for its depth, diversity and ability to move you like no other band. Seeing Scott on VH1 didn't hurt matters either, can't wait for their concert in Northern Cal. in October. You can tell he is a rare and extremely gifted old soul. If you like LZ, Stone Temple Pilots, 9 Inch Nails, SoundGarden and Smashing Pumkins like I do, you will LOVE Creed. Must listen song: Who's Got My Back Now.

    Creed is the greatest. They are once again multi-platinum and have an album of songs that will surley be classics. Creed will be known as the greates band of all time several years from now because they know what excellent music is about.

    Creed will define the way music is

    I Started to listen to Creed before they became popular. Although I am in middle school, I still will like Creed when I get older. My friends and I have fights over what they mean to say in their songs. So, If anybody knows what he means in My Sacrifice, please E-mail me! No matter where I go or how I'll change, I will always like Creed.

    How can you give this five stars? Bullets was the only decent song on this Cd. This cd was not worth buying.

    I Love Creed, But I Hate Weathered

    The highlights of the album are My Sacrifice, Bullets, and One Last Breath. The rest, I can do without. Creed has been my favorite band since I first heard them in Florida all those years ago, and their early shows displayed a charisma I have rarely found in any other group of musicians. I loved My Own Prison, and Human Clay was adequate, but Weathered is poorly arranged, and it all sounds the same. If you had to spend $18.00 on a CD, your money is better spent buying the Red Hot Chili Pepper's By The Way, or anyone of Nickelback's three albums- Curb, The State, and Silver Side Up.

    Creed Remains On Top

    I love this new Creed cd. I listen to it while I read, while I drive, even while trying to get some rest. This is the best Creed cd yet! My favorite song was Hide, but there's no underrating the rest of this wonderful cd.
