Life Must Go On is embarrassing...and so is Away in Silence... And Rain. Extremely cheesy pop songs.

I agree Mark's tone in FC is horrible.

The only songs I don't skip on FC are A Thousand Faces and Fear. I don't care for the others... I actually only listen to it if my iPhone is on shuffle.

Thought the bridge to Away in Silence is pretty good when Mark jumps in.

I appreciate music and I thought Full Circle had some unique qualities to it. Song you Sing was a different side of Mark that we rarely see. Riffs in Suddenly,Fear,Overcome are pretty good. Thousand faces was the first song that we heard Mark's vocal range.

I try not to judge music to much because of what music means to people and I respect that. Full Circle was a good album. Not their greatest but a good album

I've already posted it, but it doesn't matter.
Remember when FC was released, there were itunes charts.
Away in silence was a big seller on day one, and if I remember correctly, one of the band members saying they had noticed and that it would probably be a single then.

Who knows, this song may have been a chart topper for them.

I remember a radio station played Away In Silence during an interview with the band. The radio station was pushing to have it be a single. Too bad Windup records sucks at being a record label.

apparently the guys chose the singles and Stapp was in minority with Full Circle and Bread of Shame.

Bread of Shame would've been a terrible choice for single especially when you take Creed's history into account. I like Full Circle but a lot of people I know didn't so it probably was a good thing it wasn't used.

I really think the heavier side of Creed will be much more appreciated than the pop radio single stuff.

^I think that is the catch. Heavier singles will be more appreciated critically but the pop singles will be more successful commercially.

I think Mark wants the heavier side of Creed to shine through. But I do agree that Away in Silence would have been a great single after a thousand faces

Apparently Mark wanted Rain to be released as a single, and it happened. Rain definitely is one of the weakest songs on the album

I don't agree about Rain.
It's catchy, and it's one of the rare FC songs where Stapp actually sounds like his old self.
I still don't understand why it didn't get bigger.
IMHO, Creed could write the best song of their career, and 95% of radio DJ's wouldn't play it because the band has such a bad reputation. I'm pretty sure Stapp's solo record will be a flop because of this.

I like "Full Circle" a lot more than most people here do, apparently. In my opinion it's better than Weathered but not as good as MOP and Human Clay.

This may get me flamed, but I like it more than Weathered. They had become so commercial by Weathered, that it all seemed like superficial ballad-y pop-stuff to me. One the other hand, I really liked Time, A Thousand Faces, Rain and a couple others.

Honestly if this album came out in like 2003 and Scott's voice was still in top form, I think a lot of people would say this is better than Weathered. Full Circle is more of a rock record where Weathered goes through phases. Starts out heavy and progressively gets softer.

Listening to it right now after probably 3 years and it sounds great. Mark just rips on this...man what riffs ! Flip's drumming is super and Scott's singing and lyrics stand out. Brian is a little low in the mix but his basslines sound great.

Funny how you can appreciate and hear new things in a record even after years.

I still enjoy it. Vocals? Not so much but the lyrics are really what stand out & that's where Stapp always shines even if you don't like his voice.
