This album is pretty good. I think it would be much stronger if Skillet hadn't released "Collide" before this album. "Comatose" lacks the rawness and intensity of "Collide". This is still a great album, but it falls way short of "Collide". 7.

I completely ditto what Pat has said...my thoughts exactly. Collide was more passionate. Comatose takes out the passionate and ends up at mainstream. 6.5. Well, I'll round up to 7.

I gave it an 8 because I expected a bit more harder stuff, but it's still amazing and pretty intense.

On Comatose the vocals are a lot better than Collide (as relating to clarity)
Even though some of the rough edges still show on some songs.(Although that's one of the things I like about Skillet).
But Skillet and punk rock?("Those Nights") That's just not them. It's not a bad punk song but Skillet is not a punk band. I hope it's just an experiment and nothing they think about seriously. Pretty much its an awesome album by the awesomest band ever.

Hmm, "Those Nights" was actually pulled off quite nicely in my opinion. Not something I want to hear a lot of, but it wasn't terrible. Really, the only 2 tracks I really enjoyed were "Rebirthing" and "Whispers in the Dark". And about the vocals, meh, they're not exactly better. Less gritty I think. I loved the dirty, gritty sound Collide had.

I didn't say "Those Nights" was a bad punk song, but it's just not Skillet.

And the rough edges (the gritty sound) is not found as much in Comatose but I said thats one of the things I like most about Skillet.

But if you know Skillet well enough you know they're not punk. It just doesn't suit them. I'm glad they kept it to 1 song.

My thoughts exactly. I voted a 10. I'm still amazed every time I listen to this CD. I've come to the conclusion that Collide and Comatose cannot be compared because of the complete difference of music style. They tie.
