ODR Review from Rolling Stone Magazine

Rolling Stone: September 16, 2004

Alter Bridge: One Day Remains
Album Review: 2 Stars

Three-quarters of Creed soldier 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 lead 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 Robnert 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.
--Kirk Miller

On the last page of the magazine, under Top 40 Albums, they have ODR as #5 and marked as "new," and has the caption "Stapp-less Success. The band formerly known as Creed is doing fine without frontman Scott Stapp (new recruit Myles Kennedy), moving 95,373 copies the first week."


Today I'm gonna try a little harder
Gonna make every minute last longer
Gonna learn to forgive and forget
'Cause we don't have long
Gonna make the most of it

Today I'm gonna love my enemies
Reach out to somebody who needs me
Make a change, make the world a better place
'Cause tomorrow could be one day too late

--lyrics from "One Day Too Late" by Skillet
from their new album "Awake"
