Well, since the point of all of this is that I don't think the song sounds like pop-punk or punk (besides two elements), I want you to provide a SPECIFIC example. I own 3 Relient K CDs (well...4 with the Christmas album) and I don't hear the similarities.

I think a better example would be FM Static. Specifically? Hmm...I dunno...Three Days Later, Definitely Maybe, October, those are some songs.

Yeah, thats what I was thinking. "Those nights" does have a FM static feel too it (not just the intro riff and "oh" part). But thats just my opinion.

I was expecting a harder album, however, the way they fill the music with hard guitar riffs and more programming than Collide was perfect. Rebirthing is a great song that shows off the programming and back up vocals. Also other good songs include Comatose, Better Than Drugs, and the final song with spoken word in it, Looking for Angels. This music is very well done and will appeal to a wide assortment of music buffs. This one gets a 9 from me.

I checked out all three of those songs on iTunes. I'm just not hearing it. I'm also having a real hard time understanding how one could hear "Those Nights" and think the song writing sounds more like those three songs than like the other songs on the Skillet CD.

What specifically in "Those Nights" sounds like elements of which specific parts of those songs.

FM Static definitely i hear; In style.You have to listen to their choruses, like check out their purevolume or myspace.

I gave it a 9. Less generic and filler than Collide, and probably the most diverse sounding album they've made (although I only have the last three). Also the first guitar solos and Korey singing again. But I would have preferred more heavy songs, and the chorus of "Better Than Drugs" is somewhat of a cliche.

I definitely heard the pop-punk in "Those Nights", the opening riff, "oh oh"s and piano in the verse all sound like modern Relient K.

When you call anything with harsh vocals "screamo", it makes as much sense as calling anything with distorted guitar "heavy metal".

I gave it a 10. Very good array of different things. The orchestral sounds from Rebirthing and Comatose, the pop rock of Those Nights, the ballads (Older I Get, Yours to Hold, Say Goodbye) are good, but I don't like Say Goodbye that much so if I could take back my vote, I'd probably give it a 9. Whispers, The Last Night, and Falling Inside the Black are also good. I do agree that the Better than Drugs chorus is a cliche, but it's a good song overall.

10 all the way. I agree that the chorus of Better than Drugs is a major cliche, but it's a well-used cliche. Especially if you gave that song to someone who had actually been using drugs and were considering becoming a Christian, it'd be a great way to reach out to them.

I gave this album a 10 becuase nearly every song on that CD touched a part of my life. Especially Those Nights and Say Goodbye. If you combine those two you've got my relationship with my best friend.

i liked Rebirthing( actually played it at my recital )Falling Inside the Black, and Whispers in the Dark( i can play all of these except for the insane solo in Whispers..), and i like Comatose( the song), but not as much as the others. i agree with what basically everyone else has said, its not as gritty or intense as Collide, and Collide and more "Hit" singles IMHO.

My favorite Skillet CD (the oldest I go back is Alien Youth). Top songs are "Whispers In The Dark," "Rebirthing," "Comatose."
