Biography

Skillet recently made headlines when their last album, Awake, became one of just three rock albums to be certified platinum in 2012, forming an improbable triumvirate with the Black Keys’ El Camino and Mumford & Sons’ Babel. The news that Skillet had sold more than a million albums in the U.S. came as a shock to all but the band’s wildly diverse horde of fans, male and ... Read more in Amazon's Skillet Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Anything but Comatose October 3, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Ever since their self-titled debut album, Skillet has been known for great music and mind-blinding lyrics. Things like "I'm going to drown you in maddening forgiveness..." (from "Hey, You, I love your Soul" of the album with the same name) and "Soak my heart in Gasoline/Light a match and consume me..." (from "Gasoline", self-titled debut) truly made this critic anxious to see what their seventh full-length production would bring -- both lyrically and musically. After six albums, one would think that there's not much life left.

And one would be wrong.

"Comatose" opens up with their first single: "Rebirthing," a beautiful mix of power and emotion, which sets the pace for the rest of the album. Filled with piano, strings and the angelic voice of Korey Cooper, the emotion is not lacking throughout the length of the album. However, it is filled with enough guitar riffs and catchy beats that maintain the "Skillet" hard-rock flavor we've all come to know and love. The orchestral elements prove the musical genius that Skillet was capable of. Versatile, beautiful and powerful -- Skillet has, once again, raised the bar for themselves and their contemporaries.

Skillet's sound in "Comatose" is much more complete and mature. Now, it's about much more than the crunchy music. It's a complete experience.

If you like exceptionally-made hard-rock music with elements of piano and stings, or if you're a "Pan-Head" (like me!) this is a must buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Soundtrack to My Life July 25, 2008
By Ruthie
Format:Audio CD
There are not enough words available to contain the genius that is Skillet. I truly think that when the dust settles from the rock movement, eventually Skillet will be one of the bands remembered for their lyricism and musical ingenuity. Many bands have attempted to put a hard spin on classical refrains, but Skillet has largely succeeded, and it will give them longevity beyond many other more well-known bands.

Skillet also manages to be relevant in a scarily intimate way--I cried the first time I heard "The Last Night," and I don't cry to music. They've tapped into a generational Zeitgeist; you can see them laid open in their music and follow them through it. They acknowledge the messy, sticky, depressing ugliness of humanity, and then offer a way out. They are brave enough to confront inner demons that we all face, and then brave enough to stand up and say, "I know it doesn't have to be this way." Their devastating and honest spirituality is an affirmation of Faith and a total obliteration of excuses. I pray for this band, because I don't want to ever see them lose that total transparency that comes from a genuine relationship with Christ.

While each of their albums has some real gems, this one is nothing but one big hit. Once again, in an apropos theme, it's entitled "Comatose," with a trash heap of TVs in a drab field on the cover. Just staring at the artwork gives one chills, and completely sets the stage for the first song. I know that artwork is supposed to complement the album, but for it to be a part of the experience is new to me.

The journey opens with the adrenaline rush that is "Rebirthing." The tune is catchy--maybe I shouldn't do this, but I've played this album enough that my two-year-old can sing along with the chorus.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding hard rock October 10, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've been a Skillet fan for years, and they just keep impressing me more with each album. "Comatose" is a great blend of driving, hard rock with quick (though constant) infusions of synth rhythms.

What's most amazing about this album, however, is the lyrical intimacy the band achieves in the midst of such hard rock. Songs like "The Last Night" and "Yours to Hold" contain some beautiful lyrics of love, but they're couched in the midst of the screaming guitars and driving rhythms.

"Rebirthing" and "Whispers in the Dark" show off the band's hard rock edge, while "Say Goodbye" and "Looking for Angels" are excellent ballads. Overall, another winner from this incredible band.

5.0 out of 5 stars Out of the Skillet and into the Frying Pan! February 2, 2007
Format:Audio CD
This CD is fantastic. I heard Rebirthing on the Gospel Channel and owned the CD within a week. Naturally, I listened to Rebirthing until I couldn't take it anymore (which was quite a while). Once I did, I realized, every track on this CD is worthy of the same airtime as Rebirthing. I don't say that lightly. I'm very stingy with my cash on CD's having grown up when they cost over $20 and all you got were 3 great songs. Now I usually buy the download song for .88 cents rather than splurge on the entire CD. Rebirthing made me buy the entire CD and I'm glad I did. This music rocks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Their best yet!!! January 22, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Even though I do enjoy most of the music Skillet puts out, I wouldn't exactly call myself a 'panhead'. However, with the release of "Comatose" I am one step closer to becoming a 'pan-head'. This album is a true work of art. I admire the way they sing with so much passion. Their lyrics are thought-provoking and strike right at the listener's heart. The music (guitar riffs included) keep you drawn in.

Some of my favorite songs from the album are: Rebirthing, Comatose, The Last Night, Yours to Hold, The Older I Get, Those Nights, Say Goodbye and Whispers in the Dark.

I highly recommend this album if you want to listen to some down to earth Christian rock!!!
