About this album

My Own Prison is the debut album by American rock band Creed, released on August 26, 1997. It has been certified six times platinum and is one of the top 200 selling albums of all time in the United States. The person kneeling on the album’s cover is Justin Brown, a friend of the band. The picture was taken by guitarist Mark Tremonti’s brother, Daniel, for a photography class. It has spent over 150 weeks on the catalog albums chart and over 110 weeks on the billboard top 200 chart.

For the band’s debut release manager Jeff Hanson matched them up with John Kurzweg, a producer friend who, with his unobtrusive production style and talents as a songsmith and multi-instrumentalist, he felt was a great fit. Together the album was recorded for $6,000, which was funded by Hanson. My Own Prison was released independently in 1997 on their own Blue Collar Records. The album was distributed to Florida radio stations, and their enthusiasm for the record helped it sell 6,000 copies in the first two months in Florida alone.

    This is by far the best Creed album! I wish they had continued making stuff with this much soul but they never did! Human Clay and Weathered just seem so phoned in compared to this.

    This album is actually very, VERY good. Which makes me wonder, what the hell happened to Creed between this and Human Clay? They could have been a respected veteran alternative rock band by now, and instead they're the laughing stock of the music industry. It baffles me.
