We gave it a B

Creed have unequivocally not returned with an album that will make you reconsider their merits as a band. Instead, they’ve set the time machine for 2000 with Full Circle, a standard collection of self-serious crunching-about, complete with Mark Tremonti’s rarely dull (if sometimes overbearing) guitars and Scott Stapp’s good ol’ Vedder-derivative vocals. With exceptions like jangly grower ”Rain,” it’s heavier than the radio riffs of Creed’s early days, and for messianic modern rock with a woe-is-me lyrical bent, it’s not bad. Not sure who was asking for more of it, though. B
