Great sound, great vocals, great lyrics, great message.
Andre Jimmo
A lot of cd's sound like the same song from beginning to end, Skillet is getting good at breaking up their sound to add variety throughout the album.

Rise" is Skillet's magnum opus. It's perhaps the best album that they will ever create. Musically it incorporates Skillet's entire body of work from the early electronic influences to the harder edge of "Collide" to the symphonic rock found on the most recent albums, yet all these elements work together to relentlessly push "Rise" into new places. The effect of everything hitting at once is visceral--tangible.

Thankfully, I'm no longer the painfully strange middle schooler who latched onto the crying angst and loneliness found in Skillet albums like "Collide;" however, I believe I'm always going be asking questions like "How can evil like that exist in this world", or "What is my place" to "How on earth am I going to get through this day." These questions and answers have always been the core of John Cooper's writing; however "Rise" puts these messages into a logical progression and flow that makes them even more powerful.

"Rise" is not a rock opera or concept album in the way many people are probably used to---probably because most of types of albums always seem so forced. However, it is in fact a concept album divided into three separate chapters. It's not so much a story as an emotional journey as seen through the perspective of a young teenager. The first act is about a kind of naive brashness and optimism ("Rise" to "Not Gonna Die"). The second act is really a horror and growing awareness of the world ("Circus for a Psycho" to "Madness in Me"), and the third act is about redemption and hope (everything after "MiM").

Skillet's "Rise" is an album of almost epic proportions - here is why:

1. The album stands out from their other work. This is not Awake 2.0, but a whole new level of music and song writing.
2. Complex feel of the music. Not only is this a solid rock record, but there is theme to this album. When I listen to it, it sounds like two things are happening at once - you are listing to a great song, but there is underlying theme that pulls you into the next song, and the next, and the next.
3. This album also unfolds like a musical/rock opera! Mamma Mia meets Phantom of the Opera meets ROCK!
4. EVERYONE SHOULD BUY THE DELUXE VERSION. The bonus tacks actually round off the album perfectly with the incredible "Freakshow" closer. I'm a bit disappointed the standard version didn't include this track - it feels like an essential part for the overall record.
5. The songs "Good To Be Alive" and "American Noise" gave me goosebumps. They are extremely positive without being preachy or cheesy. Plus, they sound amazing! This is kind of stuff every artist should have on a record - A POSITIVE UPLIFTING MESSAGE.

Stand out "single" tracks are: "Sick of It", "Good to be Alive", "American Noise", "What I Believe", and "Freakshow".

I have been counting the days for this album to come out and was very pleased with the result. The first 5 songs are my favorites and sick of it is so catchy that it is hard to get out of my head. My favorite album is Comatose and this goes a different direction than that album. I was unsure if I would like this new approach at first, but was very pleased once I heard all of the songs. Great job on another great album Skillet!

Skillet's new long anticipated album "Rise" is all about hope in a broken world. It's easy to think of this album as the third part of a trilogy that began with the perfect album of 2006's "Comatose." Although Skillet has dabbled in many different genres in their almost 20 year career (grunge and industrial and a praise album), Skillet found the style that fit best with "Comatose," an album that connected with fans both lyrically and musically. While not straying too far from the formula that worked perfectly in "Comatose" and worked in places in "Awake," Skillet adds a few elements to "Rise" to make it one of their best albums. Skillet is at their best when mixing in hard hitting rock anthems and slower reflective ballads that build to a brilliant crescendo, all the while adding in symphonic rock elements and electronic nuances. "Awake" might have disappointed many fans, including myself, but not because of a lack of great tracks ("Hero," Monster," "Awake And Alive," and "Lucy" were all solid tracks); the issue with "Awake" was that it was like listening to a less effective "Comatose." "Rise," however adds enough variety to make it work very well including more vocals from drummer Jen Ledger.

1. Rise (10/10): the title track starts the album off perfectly. Skillet never disappoints on an opening track ("Rebirthing" and "Hero" are some of their best) and this one has rock stadium anthem written all over it. It has the Skillet signature throughout from the opening symphonic notes to John Cooper's unique scream-sing which has not lost any of its juice over all these years. With lyrics like these, it's easy to hear a crowd sing along to: "Sound it off, this is a call, rise in revolution. It's our time to change it all, rise in revolution. Unite and fight to make a better life.
