A quick note about Creed
Well, this is just kind of stuff coming off the top of my brain right now, but I just finished watching the Alcatraz videos... simply brilliant despite Scott's vocal condition.
That prompted me to go back and listen to some long-neglected Creed tracks. It just re-confirmed to me how incredible Creed's music really is. Look past the musical talent and originality of the band... there's something more there.... something that can't effectively be put into words.
I'm not angry that other people bash Creed. I feel bad for them! They listen to popular opinion about the band, believe it, and avoid Creed as a rock "boy band" (LOL, who came up with that notion, anyway?).
They only listen to Creed's singles and think that's the depth of the band. Sad. They are really missing out on something unique and special.
Creed fans know what's going on. They were able to surmount the barrier that others have erected around Creed, and have tapped in to something extraordinary.
I can't find the ryhme in all my reason
Lost sense of time and all seasons
Feel I've been beaten down
By the words of men who have no ground
Can't sleep beneath the trees of wisdom
When your axe has cut the roots that feed them
Forked tongues in bitter mouths
Can drive a man to bleed from inside out
- "What If", Creed
