Skillet's Rebirth Makes For An Epic Release

Skillet took the Christian rock scene by storm in 2006 with their landmark release, Comatose. Forget any adjectives you had used to describe them previously, they blew them all away from the first notes of the amazing album.
Collide had gotten them some well-deserved attention, but Comatose built on that base and launch Skillet higher still.
From the opening orchestrated notes of "Rebirthing," the listener knows that this is something special and that feeling continues throughout every song. As you listen, you wonder when the 'bad' or 'filler' tracks are coming. Cause when one great track ends, another begins. It's like a Greatest Hits collection, only it isn't.
"The Last Night," the title track, "Those Nights, "Whispers in the Dark," all of these and more create splendid musical variety. These tunes will be stuck in your head for a long time.
The orchestrated stringed music mixes well with the crunching and intense riffs of hard rock music. Skillet has bypassed good rock music and landed well in the Unforgettable Musical Experience(yes I said experience) territory.
So if you like hard rock and haven't picked this one up yet(it's been years now, what are you waiting for?), DO IT! This isn't just something to pass the time, this here is MUSIC! Amazing, unbelievable, epic, MUSIC!
