Massive rock riffs, swirling drums, monstrous hooks and undeniably catchy choruses. Hints of progressive rock mixed in with modern alternative flourishes and touches of classical influence as swelling strings intersect with sonic adrenaline rushes. It's indeed a fusion unlike any other, marking the latest chapter in the continuous evolution of Skillet, whose moniker couldn't be more fitting come its explosive release Comatose.

Amazing| Posted February 20, 2008
I can officaly say that Comatose is my favorite album ever, and i don't say that lightly. This album is amazing and i love their rock sound/lyrics. I have always been a fan of skillet but this is by far their best album to date. The strings/guitar rifts/drums/vocals/lyrics all collide into one amazing album. Rebirthing, comatose, older i get, and whispers in the dark are just a few songs that leave the listeners wanting more. the deluxe edition is great for any fan, because of the music videos, bonus song live free or let me die, and accustic songs of of some of their hits. i can't wait until their next project comes.

Comatose is the best cd I own- so to add extras on is even better! The accoustic versions and the new song ARE worth buying it again, like I did. Wonderful rock and worship songs by my favorite band are worth the price!
Rebirthing| Posted December 30, 2007
I have personally just started getting into rock music. I have always been a pop fan. After I really started to like rock, I read through reviews of some Christian rock bands I might like. I read the constantly positive reviews of "comatose", so I decided I wanted to get it. However, this was just a few months before the Deluxe Edition, so I decided to wait until it came out. I am not disappointed that I did! The album has its share of "rock-out" songs, power ballads, and mellow tracks. The "rock-out" songs are what Skillet does best, and are obviously my favorite songs on the album. These are songs like the incredibly catchy "Rebirthing," "Falling In The Black," "Better Than Drugs," and "Comatose", the haunting "Whispers In The Dark", and the new track, "Live Free Or Let Die." "Looking For Angels" is one of my favorites and is very unique: while the song is a rocker, the verses are in spoken word, which is very haunting and just plain cool. The rock ballads are "Yours To Hold" and "Say Goodbye". These are good songs, but not the best. There are also some more mellow tracks. That means that while they are rockers, they have a slower pace. These are the songs, "Last Night," "Those Nights," & "Older I Get."
Favorites: Rebirthing, Comatose, Whispers In The Dark, Looking For Angels
Good: The Last Night, Yours To Hold, The Older I Get, Those Nights, Better Than Drugs, Say Goodbye, Live Free Or Let Me Die, Falling Inside The Black.
The so-called "acoustic" tracks are not what we usually label "acoustic" or "unplugged" new recordings. Instead they are acoustic MIXES of the tracks. That means that they take the original song and take out certain instruments---no re-recordings. "Rebirthing" and "Whispers In The Dark" sound cool in the acoustic format, but the others are already ballads and dont sound that different. The DVD has 3 official music videos and a video montage. The videos for "Rebirthing" and "Whispers" are kind of boring and pointless. They just show shots of the band playing, interweaved with some random stuff. It's hard to tell what's going on in them because the camera is so choppy. "Looking For Angels" is the best of them because it actually has a meaning. It shows the band playing in some kind of city alley mixed with video of foreign children. It is very sweet! The video labeled as "Behind-The-Scenes" is nothing more than a video montage set to "The Older I Get", with clips of the and in the studio. This is the same video released a few months ago on iTunes. Even though the videos aren't that great, it's nice for a Skillet fan to have them on DVD together. The CD also comes with a free ringtone for "Falling Inside The Black" and cell wallpaper, but since I don't have a cell phone, I can't use those nifty little extras.
