It was produced by Howard Benson. He co-wrote all of the songs on the CD.
His new albums opens with the lead single "Slow Suicide" and "Who I Am," both of which are heavier tracks.
The title cut "Proof of Life" is melodically and lyrically stunning and "New Day Coming" is optimistic.
"Only One" is noteworthy and Stapp soars on the mid-tempo "Break Out."
"Hit Me More" is a catchy tune and "Jesus was a Rockstar" is a powerful track that should not be skipped.
My personal favorite song is the power-ballad "What Would Love Do." Vocally, it is equal in excellence to his Grammy-winning hit "With Arms Wide Open."
It closes on an emotional note with "Dying to Live," where he reflects on his mistakes in the past and how he is looking forward to a new beginning. This is a truly powerful song with captivating lyrics that is worthy of the price of the album alone.
The Verdict
Overall, Scott Stapp's new album Proof of Life is well-done and fans of Creed and rock music should check it out. It garners 4.5 out of 5 stars. There is something in it for everybody and it is truly inspiring. He allows his audience to hear his heart on this album, thus showcasing his vulnerability as an artist.
