iTunes Editors’ Notes

Ten years into their recording career, Skillet makes its most ambitious bid for mainstream success with 2006’s Comatose. The veteran Contemporary Christian group has long shown an ability to assimilate diverse elements – including grunge and industrial – into its work, and John Cooper’s aggressive lead vocals and versatile songwriting skills have displayed both sincere faith and a keen pop culture sense. With Comatose, Skillet turns up the audio heat considerably, fashioning a fine-polished modern sound, long on meaty guitar hooks and insistent bass lines, displaying a sonic heft exemplified by “Rebirthing” and “Those Nights." As before, the music is the vehicle for messages of hope and salvation — this time, though, the lyrics draw to a greater degree upon Cooper’s personal struggles. “Looking For Angels” and the title track crystallize the album’s theme of striving against spiritual complacency and doubt. Like Chevelle and Switchfoot before them, Skillet aims to make 21st Century Christian rock that beckons to the uncommitted as well as the believer, and Comatose takes a bracing and convincing step towards that goal.

Customer Reviews

Their best work. Period.

Rebirthing - Awesome blending of classical and rock, reminiscent of Evanescence. One of the strongest tracks on the record. The Last Night - A song of encouragement. "This is the last night you'll spend alone/I'll wrap you in my arms and I won't let go/I'm everything you need me to be". Awesome guitar work.. this one's a keeper. Yours to Hold - Slowing the pace down, this is a song about that special someone you'd do anything to be with, but they just never knew it. You'll find yourself singing this one in the shower. Better than Drugs - Proclaming that God is "better than drugs/Your love is like wine", the guitar work in this song sounds so much like Breaking Benjamin i had to double-check my playlist to make sure it wasn't. a solid track. Comatose - Piano and orchestral work that would make Evanescence green with envy, guitars that would make Three Days Grace jealous, and lyrics that get stuck in your head while saying something meaningful make for arguably the best song here. It's an anthem of our emptiness without a Savior to fill the void. "Comatose/I'll never wake up without an overdose/of You" The Older I Get - A song about the pain of growing apart from someone you love. Quality sound, with lyrics that are guaranteed to stay in your head for a long time to come. Those Nights - "Remember when we'd/Stay up late and we'd talk all night/In a dark room lit by the TV light/Through all the hard times in my life/Those nights kept me alive" An anthem of memories. If not so heavy, it would be made for Radio Disney. Simply a fun song. Falling Inside the Black - Following that is a rather dark song about losing control, slipping away, screaming for someone to save you. Sounds like a song Disturbed would write. Great music. Say Goodbye - The slowest song here, this song gives you a break from the past 45 minutes of crunching guitars. A song of regret, in some ways.. Someone you love is leaving, and just can't bring yourself to say goodbye. "Do you remember, in December/How we swore we'd never change/Even though you're leaving/Our feelings would always stay the same/Do we have to end this now?/Can we make it last somehow?" Whispers in the Dark - A love song from God to man, this song has some of the catchiest hooks on the album. Fans of Breaking Benjamin should definitely take notice. Guaranteed to be running through your head until you scream, it reminds us that God's love is "a burning, consuming fire". Looking for Angels - The lyrics here are mostly spoken, reminiscent of Linkin Park's "Nobody's Listening". Not my favorite track on the record, but it does make some good points. It's a somewhat jarring deviation from the rest of the album. Overall, this may be the best rock album I have ever heard. Variation and quality, both lyrically and musically make for possibly the best $9.90 you'll ever spend. Enjoy the masterpiece. Download: "The Last Night", "Comatose", "Yours to Hold", "Rebirthing".

WOW

could music get any better? seriously God uses this band like nothing before. prasie God for his grace

Skillet is Amazing

Best album yet. Lots of diversity. Rebirthing - Good song; one of the harder songs on the album; if you arn't going to get the rest of the album definently get this song The Last Night - Encouraging; This is the last night you'll stand alone/ look me in the eyes so i know you know/im everywhere you want me to be Yours to Hold - Slowing things down; good song if you can relate to it, but if you're looking for rock its probably not your thing Better Than Drugs - One of the best songs on the album; Stating that God is better than drugs, and really better than anything; one of the more rock songs too Comatose - Good lyrics; good rock; great song; The Older I Get - Slowing things down again; this song almost sounds like oldies, but for some reason i like it; it's definently something different Those Nights - Sort of sounds like punk or pop; reminds me of hawk nelson, so if you like relient k and hawk nelson and stuff like that you'll probably like this Falling Inside The Black - A song about slipping away from your faith, but asking for help from God to get you back on track; one of the harder songs again; its good but not one of best Say Goodbye - This is similar to Yours to Hold, and The Older I Get; slow, kind of boring Whispers in the Dark - This song saves the end of the album; it's saying how God is always there; best song on the album in my opinion; it's one of the harder songs, and has great lyrics No, you'll never be alone/ when darkness comes/ i'll light the night with stars/ hear my whispers in the dark; if you buy no other song from this album buy this. Looking for Angels - Probably the most different song in the album; it's a song of hope, a song of how we can help the world, and spread the news; it's just a different style; i wouldnt say it's the best way to end the album, but it is good Overall - This album is awesome, whenever you get too much rock, it slows down the pace; when things get too slow, it picks it back up again. Great job skillet Download - Rebirthing, Better Than Drugs, Comatose, Whispers in the Dark
