I like all their stuff (STILL don't have Collide, but I saw it in the store the other day), but I LOVE the Grunge album they did.....

Even the elitists like Skillet, it seems. I listened to their debut "grunge" album as I showered this morning. Darn good pop tunes.

This an awesome cd. It is by far the best skillet album yet. Not only is it good musically. it is also good lyrically. Everyone needs to check it out.

This cd frickin rocks ya'll!!!!!!!!!!!! It is definitely the best Skillet cd yet and probably the best christian rock cd ever. The guitars are amazing and John's vocals are much more intense. They finally have let go of all that techno junk which really held Alien Youth back. The quality of the recording is much better for this album as well, which is really apparent in the guitars. Something interesting to listen to is the transitions from the verses to the chorus, they do it differently each time. The only thing I dislike about the cd is it only has 10 tracks, but that's not so bad because almost all of the tracks are over 4 minutes long. I highly recommend this cd too any hard rock or grunge fan.

This CD amazed me. I wasn't even planning on buying it myself--I hadn't bought a new Skillet CD since the times of Invincible and Hey You I love your soul....but my mom bought this for me, thinking she knew my taste in music. and...WOW. A completely different sound from their older stuff. It almost makes me want to go ahead and buy Alien Youth, just so I can hear the over all changes in sound. The sound is more rock, and the lyrics are so much more emotional...in a way a bit darker, but still with that uplifting side. I love it. Probably one of my favorite Cds right now, which is awesome, considering I thought I'd given up hope on SKillet.
Defenitely ten out of ten.

Oh yeah this cd rocks my face off!!! I have felt the ones higher presence on a few of their new songs. How do the older people know what is right and wrong. If you can feel his presence it is good for ya. Oh yeah my favorite song on the album is probaly Fingernails just because i can relate to it sorta. I like the violin? solo on the start of Collide . I also love Forsaken and all the other songs. Especially A little more. I really like when heavy bands add in a soft song on any of their albums. Man now i really like christian music. This cd beats all of the secular artists i have heard. The only song i am not a big fan of (but still like) would have to be Energy. Did anyones lyrics for Energy and Cycle Down have the same for Savior and Forsaken. Who cares this album was awesome.

i already said this album was awesome but hey i can say it twice it was. someone said they don't like energy that much but i love it, although in an interview i read john says energy is probably the worst song on the cd, personally i love it cause its just that... energy!! i was at their concert last night which was awesome!!! pillard and 12 stones were there but skillet was by far the best! (although they didn't play energy haha) they're re-releasing their cd again in may... 29th i think or somewhere close to that going under a new label changing from ardent to lava records which is a secular label which means they'll be headed mainstream, and when they re-release the cd its gonna have an additional track! haha i'm stoked! so since i lost this cd i'll just by the new one!

I like "Energy" too... the vocals are really cool. They are sung in a cool rhythm.

I think this is a great CD. It reminds me of Trapt, if you've ever heard them.

Please don't ruin Skillet for me.

They are one of my last remaining ties to CCM.

I liked the techno stuff. It was original.

This album rips off mainstream rock.
