Florida's Creed plays classic-grunge. No hip-hop syncopations. No Korny goth-rock theatrics. Just straight-ahead, testosterone-stoked sludge-rock performed by true believers who think Seattle is mecca. And more power to 'em! HUMAN CLAY, the follow-up to the four-million-selling MY OWN PRISON, is not only quaint in its religiously intense pursuit of the chalice of rock righteousness, it's also pretty gosh-darn triumphant. Vocalist Scott Stapp is as talented a yowler as grunge has produced, flinging spiritualist maxims like "in searching for substance/we're clouded by struggle's haze" heavenward as his mates lay down tracks with crunch and punch that almost seem like taunts to such contemporaries as the Deftones and Days of the New. The single "Higher" is the obvious sure shot here. Stapp sets dreams of a world where "love replaces all our hate" against a backdrop of chunky riffs, slingshot mini-solos, and pummeling drumbeats. Other noteworthy cuts are the monstrous "Are You Ready?" and the dark, mysterious "Wrong Way." The sound of 1991 is alive and well.
