I've always thought Skillet were kind of average, but I was hoping Awake could be an album to put them on my radar. After hearing "Hero" I couldn't help but be disappointed. This song is nothing but an average rock song. I'm not saying that a band should change it up every time they have a new song, but this song just was not catchy at all to me.
I'm not going to totally slam this song or band. This is a decent rock song, but there are so many songs out there that are much better than this and blow it away lyrically. It's not that "Hero" is bad musically or lyrically. I just think that its lyrics are sadly boring and cliche, and the music isn't much different.
I hate to rate it so badly, but what I'm trying to get across is that if you are a fan of Christian rock, pass this up. Although this is by a big name band, there is a lot better out there.
