Scott Stapp, the former lead singer of Creed, is back from career exile with an album titled "The Great Divide." It's a fitting name -- there may be no more polarizing figure in recent rock history, and the gulf between his fans and his detractors is wide and ugly. Stapp may have been the most mocked man in rock in the 1990s, but Creed also sold a staggering 25 million albums in the United States alone.

A Chicago judge has dismissed a lawsuit brought by two couples who'd sought a court-ordered refund because they were displeased with a concert by the rock band Creed. The couples claimed in a lawsuit filed in April that singer Scott Stapp "was so intoxicated and/or medicated ... he was unable to sing the lyrics of a single Creed song" during a Dec. 29 performance at the Allstate Arena in suburban Rosemont.

Scott Stapp The Great Divide (Wind-up) * * When someone declares, "I do not have to justify the way I live my life," one thing is certain: That person does feel a need to justify his or her life. There's no other reason for making that statement.

Creed is big. Creed is loud. The crowds are huge. The sales are massive. But the music. . . . It's small. It booms and it rattles, but that's not nearly enough. At the Hollywood Palladium on Wednesday, Creed demonstrated that for all its high-decibel thunder, there was little of substance to take home once it was over. Not that this quartet out of Tallahassee, Fla., wasn't trying.

** Creed, "Human Clay," Wind-Up. Creed is the biggest-selling band you've never heard of. The Florida quartet was one of 1998's unlikeliest grass-roots success stories, a band that legitimized that old saw about achievement being 90% perspiration and 10% inspiration.

Prophecy isn't easy. Behold the music of Creed, an earnest four-piece rock band from Tallahassee, Fla., whose desperate reach for profundity a la Vedder, Morrison and Bono is matched only by the monumentally pedestrian sound of its music. For all the loud guitar and vocal melodrama, Creed was more routine than transcendent at the Palace on Friday night.
