Awesome cd,Not all the songs are about the Lord and I don't like that but it was well worth the money.My case was cracked when I got the cd it didn't bother me too much I know Christianbook would have been happy to replace it I just kept it instead.
Love this CD. Kids love it too.It's nice to have positive rock music out there without worrying about the content. Some people say Skillet is getting too mainstream, I don;t agree. By putting positive messages out there and having decent music to listen too that doesn't need to have a parent warning on I think is great.
I just got finally got Comatose, after hesitating so long because so many people had mixed feelings about Skillet's sound and lyrics. I am SOOO Glad I got this CD! God is written all over these songs and my relationship whith Him has gotten stronger listening to this CD. I really like their hard rock sound, it is one of the best I've ever heard, even in the mainstream world. Better Than Drugs does NOT have lyric problems whatsoever, instead it is a modern Psalm that anyone coming from that background can find hope and healing in. Rebirthing is a parable of being born again. The song Comatose is a song of dying out to the old man and rising up, to use more traditional Christian vocabulary. Falling Inside the Black really connected with me, but Looking For Angels is really quite possibly the most evangelistically minded song on the CD, it makes me want to talk about God openly, rather than shy away from spiritual conversations with some of my friends. The Older I Get is a song about John Cooper's own relationship with his father before God's grace healed their relationship. Say Goodbye is one of the most poignant love songs I have ever heard with gorgeous piano in the background. I LOVE this album. Don't waste anymore time before getting it like I did!
i have mixed fellings about this cd they defanently have a good sound! but when i here the lyrics to falling inside the black,bettar then drugs, and comatose i really wonder were this band is at with there relathionship with God!
This cd is the best! Skillet's sound is hard, gritty and powerful, and their lyrics speak to the soul about God, faith, and love through hard times, as well as the tremendous power and hope we possess through Christ. I definately recommend!
