Skillet is one of Christian Music's most recognizable bands today, with a catchy and intense sound that has garnered them a large and loyal fan base and large record sales, but even the greats like them had to start somewhere, and this Digital release is a look back at that very beginning.
The Early Years (1996–2001) is a compilation album by Christian rock band Skillet. It includes songs from Skillet's first five studio albums, excluding Ardent Worship. Two music videos, "Best Kept Secret" and "Gasoline" are also included in the compilation.

I would say this is a pretty good representation of Skillet's earlier albums. It included most of my ealry favorites including "Best Kept Secret," "Alien Youth," and "Locked in a cage." My only complaint is it does not have "Kill me,Heal me" or "Angels Fall Down." This is a good starting place if you want to see if you like Skillet's older CDs. If you like this, you should consider buying more if their old CDs.
