Unleashed - Skillet

Has anyone else got this yet? I've listened to the whole album two and a half times now and I love it! It's my favourite album by them so far!

I gave it a listen the other day. I wouldn't say it was great, but it could've been the fact that I was listening while driving and having a conversation.

Probably didn't help. But it is a bit different from their previous stuff.

I haven't heard it yet. It has been interesting to watch John Cooper morph into super modern rock god over the last twenty years. The first album is still one of my favorites even though the Skillet of 2016 is nothing like it.

I'm four songs in and it doesn't sound much different from their last couple of albums. It's catchy, melodic hard rock. I do like the addition of female vocals on recent albums.

At my age, I take it for what it is. If I was fifteen (like my son Chris) I could see Skillet (or Red) being my favorite band.

You can use that sentence to describe each new album they put out. ...except minus the word "bit." They love to change sounds with the times.

I honestly don't hear much change between Collide (2003) and Unleashed. They did add female vocals along the way but there hasn't been a huge style shift.

That's true.

I feel Collide was consistently hard rock, and the albums since have been hard rock + (fill in the blank) pop. So Comatose had, John Cooper's words, "80's ballads" style pop songs. The others have had their own version.

But no they haven't had the dramatic shifts album to album that they had their first 10 years.



I've had a strange history with the band in my mind. I really liked their first two albums, and I was young and dumb enough that I didn't notice the drastic change in style between the two albums. Then I hated their third album when it came out for being too pop and electronic. So I stopped listening to them entirely until Collide came out. In my brain that was a huge gap of time, but in reality it was only like 3 years.

More recently I haven't been into their last couple of albums. So I haven't listened to them much in like SEVEN years, but it feels like just a year or two ago that Collide came out.

Collide is probably my favorite Skillet album in the recent era.

I also have a soft spot for Ardent Worship.

I really need to give this new album another listen.

I really like Hey You, I Love Your Soul. I thought the songwriting was a step up from the first album. I can find something on every one of their albums that I like.

Disciple is another band that has changed quite a bit since their first album, which also came out in 1996. I also believe that like Skillet, the vocalist is the only original member.

FWIW...I was 26 when both of them released their debut albums.

Shoup and I saw Disciple at a church in like 1999. There was only like 30 people in the room and it was great. The lead singer did like 30 minute long sermon too.

I have Hey You, I Love Your Soul and like some of the songs on it, but in general it's not really my thing. I haven't really listened to anything pre-Collide.

Robin and I saw them in Knoxville, Tennessee in 1996. Their first album had just come out and they were playing on the local band stage. It was the opening night of the Newsboys Take Me To Your Leader tour.

I think Kevin preached for about twenty minutes that afternoon. I bought the album (on cassette) but don't know whatever happened to it. Three of the guys in the current line up of Disciple have only been in the band since 2012. I believe they have a new album coming out this year as well.
