One Day Remains Two Star Ranking

Three-quarters of Creed coldier on without Scott Stapp

You can't kill Creed, even if you try. Anyone hoping that the departure of Scott Stapp would end an era of evangelical grunge would be advised to skip the debut from Alter Bridge a.k.a. three-fourths of Creed with a new singer. New frontman Myles Kennedy is a better singer than his one-note predecessor - his upper-octave voice lands him capably between Chris Cornell and Robert Plant - but he's just as prone to hokey religious imagery. There's already talk of an "angel" and a "crown of thorns" on the opening track, "Find The Real", and it's not an isolated theme here. On the other hand, guitarist Mark Tremonti just shreds. His piercing solos on "One Day Remains" and "Metalingus" are positively Slash-like and a hell of a lot better than anything on the Velvet Revolver record. Maybe there's some hope for being reborn after all.

so myles' vocals are somewhat like cornell and plant and the shredding is better than what slash did on contraband and yet the album only deserves two stars? the only negative the author really states is the religious references.
She never told a lie,
Well, might of told a lie.
But never lived one.
Didnít have a life.
Didnít have a life.
But surely saved one.
Alright, now itís time for us to let you go.
