“Higher Power” by Scott Stapp delivers a captivating narrative of personal growth and reflection, intricately woven throughout its tracks. From the album’s inception to its conclusion, Stapp’s vocals resonate with raw emotion, guiding listeners through a diverse array of rock anthems and poignant ballads.

A defining aspect of the album is its profound lyricism. Stapp fearlessly explores themes of redemption, faith, and resilience, drawing from his own life journey to craft verses that deeply resonate. Each song feels like a chapter in his narrative, seamlessly blending vulnerability with displays of inner strength.

The impactful title track sets the tone with a strong rhythm and melodic backbone. “Deadman’s Trigger” maintains this high-energy sound effectively, with Stapp’s vocals shining alongside the unique and instantly identifiable voice. The collaboration with Dorothy on a ballad adds a refreshing change of pace, their powerful vocals complementing each other perfectly. Don’t miss the just-released video for this track.

While some may find the album slows down towards the end, the more mature songs like “Dancing in the Rain” and “Weight of the World” offer a slower burn that lingers long after repeated listens.

Sonically, “Higher Power” blends classic rock elements with modern production techniques, creating a rich and dynamic musical landscape. Infectious guitar riffs and sweeping orchestral arrangements serve as an ideal backdrop for Stapp’s impassioned vocals.

With the Creed reunion tour generating significant buzz and tickets selling out quickly, it’s satisfying to see Stapp release this album and showcase new material before the Creed frenzy takes over.

 

Score: 7/10
