Random Review: Awake, by Skillet


Skillet’s new CD Awake follows in the success of their 2006 release Comatose. Musically, the band continues in the footsteps of Comatose’s more mainstream rock sound. Which is a shame, because it seems the days of Skillet’s more adventurous and electronic oriented endeavors such as Invincible and Alien Youth seem to be over for now. Still, the band’s craftsmanship shows up throughout the twelve song collection, and John L. Cooper’s songwriting skills still pack a thoughtful punch. Tracks like “Hero” and “Monster” show the band at there best. And songs like “One Day Too Late” carry on the tradition of thoughtful and impactfull lyrics. Very recommended.
