The Great Divide is the first solo album by Scott Stapp, the former vocalist for Creed. It was released on November 22, 2005. The album came about after the original breakup of Creed and Stapp's collaboration on the original songs inspired by Mel Gibson's 2004 film The Passion of the Christ. There is a common conception that the lyrics seem to make references to the original breakup of Creed in 2004. The Great Divide was certified platinum on December 14, 2005.[2] John Kurzweg, who produced all three of Creed's prior albums, also produced The Great Divide. The album received mixed reviews from critics.
