Editorial Reviews

Driven by unbridled passions and haunted by ghosts that defy definition, the great rockers keep getting better, stronger, more determined to get it right. Proof of Life is proof that Scott Stapp is among the great rockers. It's also proof that this time he's gotten it right.

"I made up my mind to face myself as a man and an artist. This record is my first no-holds-barred statement of exactly who I am" Stapp says. That statement is simultaneously simple and complex. The simple message is a straight-up confirmation of Stapp's prowess as rock and roller of the first rank. He's alive and kicking, singing with greater grit than ever before. The self-portrait emerging from this extraordinary suite of songs is multi-layered and nuanced, the compelling drama of a man unflinchingly reexamining his past as he fights for his spiritual sanity.

The music hard-edged, explosive, fiercely spontaneous and emotionally super-charged frames the story of Stapp's remarkable journey, beginning with his long relationship with Creed.

It was 1997 when My Own Prison, the debut multi-platinum Creed album, kicked off Scott's musical journey in spectacular style. As the lead vocalist and sole storyteller, Scott sculpted his own aesthetic. From the start, his spiritual conflicts galvanized a worldwide audience. Three other mega-selling records followed Human Clay (1999), Weathered (2002) and Full Circle (2009), in addition to Stapp's successful solo venture, The Great Divide (2005). Awarded a Grammy in 2001 for his number-one hit, "With Arms Wide Open," Scott was celebrated, in the words of one Rolling Stone writer, as "a singer with an enormous emotional range and a composer of startling originality."

With the publication in 2012 of Sinner's Creed, his autobiography, Scott detailed his struggles with drugs, alcohol and depression. It paved the way for Proof of Life.

Customer Reviews

I look forward to many more CD's from him.
Nightdweller
If you like Creed, Scott's previous album, modern rock with substance or contemporary Christian music, give this album a listen.
spidervenom1992
Emotionally powerful lyrics, great production, a balance of heavy tunes and ballads, and the guy's voice sounds great.

I'll just go ahead and say it: neither Scott Stapp's first solo album nor Alter Bridge's first two albums filled the void that the dissolution of Creed in 2004 left in my personal musical experience. Regardless of the hate they received at the height of their popularity, Creed was just the right mix of intelligent lyrics and heavy rock for many, MANY people, myself included. While their 2009 reunion album "Full Circle" was a welcome addition to their catalogue, it didn't sound like classic Creed and despite some on-again off-again touring over the last couple of years, the band hasn't exactly rushed to issue a followup. Enter 2013, in which we have a new Alter Bridge album in "Fortress" and no less than a month later, Scott Stapp's second attempt at going solo, "Proof of Life." While I like Alter Bridge and appreciate the musical skill of everyone involved, their albums haven't had the same effect on me that any of Creed's albums have, regardless of their merits (that said, "Fortress" is excellent, I just don't like AB as much as Creed). And to be completely fair, I wasn't a big fan of Scott's first album, "The Great Divide," either. It had its moments, but it mostly just sounded like Creed with less intricate musicianship. As a result, I had little to no expectations for "Proof of Life"; imagine my surprise when I realized that I loved the album from the first three tracks onward.

Make no mistake: unlike "The Great Divide," "Proof of Life" does not sound like Creed nor is it Creed-lite. This is Scott's attempt to branch out musically and for the most part it works. If anything, this album has a more contemporary Christian sound to it than anything else, and reminded me very much of Casting Crowns.

I'm extremely impressed with Scott's 2nd solo effort. I loved Creed's first album and enjoyed the next 2 but felt they lacked the hard edge of the first. With Scott Stapp's first solo record I was again very impressed with the songwriting and hard edge while still being melodic. Proof of Life is a continuation of sorts from The Great Divide in that it's melodic and does have an edge but this time the edge is more melodic and fine tuned. The first run through left me very impressed and the second listen is so far giving me more of the same with the additional of nuances and lyrics that I missed the first time. Definitely worth the purchase for anyone that's enjoyed his earlier works and/or Creed. On a side note, I recently read his autobiography and after reading that the lyrics in the Great Divide took on a whole new meaning and I can also recognize certain subjects on this album.

Excellent rock album! Very inspirational. As soon as I heard this CD, I knew that it would be a great album to help me get through an extra ten minutes on the bike or to help me pull out an extra ten push ups. This isn't just an excellent CD to workout to; it's also an excellent CD to inspire you to think more positively in your daily life. So, not only will Proof of Life inspire you in the gym, it will also inspire you in your life. For me, there's not much higher praise I can say about this CD, or any CD. Proof of Life is a highly inspirational rock album. What more can you ask for?

This is the album that a lot of Creed fans, and Scott Stapp fans have waited for since Creed's latest offering in 2009. And the difference between this one and that one are easily noticeable, right off the bat. This is not a Creed album at all. The sound here, barely resembles Stapp's last solo offereing, 2005's The Great Divide.
Here we are treated to a rock star with renewed belief in his abilities as a singer and songwriter. His voice is much cleaner, and more polished than we last heard it in '09, and the music is void of any Creed re-treads. The album as a whole is fresh and modern, without losing it's hard rock edge. The production is very polished, but it still allows room for the gritty, raw sound that post-grunge fans will like, and that will keep most of these songs from getting too much tired air-play.
The main focus of the lyrics is challenges faced and overcome, with a generous portion of dark reflection.
Overall, I can see 1 or 2 more of these songs being released as singles, mainly tracks 6 and 7, to go along with the opening track, which was release prior to the album. Aside from those, being mostly mid-upper tempo, radio-friendly songs, there are a couple all out hard rockers. The album is heavily loaded with mid-tempo balads in the second half, but unlike Creed's 2001 album Weathered, and Stapp's previous solo outing, this does not diminish from the recording. It never gets too "soft."
Overall, if I were to compare this to something for you, so you can go out and buy it (or not) without previewing it first, I'd say it's about as "hard" as a later 3 Doors Down album, and about as "pop" as a heavy metal album produced by Mutt Lange (no, it doesn't sound like Def Leppard).

The music combines all emotions, from an adrenaline rush to introspective thought. The heartfelt lyrics are delivered with his powerful, passionate singing. The songs are melodic, gritty, and catchy. thoroughly enjoyed this CD. I think it is better than The Great Divide (which was also very good).
