Hey, hey! I don't know if anybody posted this yet, but you can hear 20something second clips of 'Comatose', HERE (http://jesusfreakhideout.com/cdreviews/Comatose.asp).

Wicked awesome does NOT even begin to describe it. But that is as good as I can get so.....the album is WICKED AWESOME!!! *blasts of to Jupiter, circles it a few times, flys back to get some water, does it a billion more times*. Yeah. That is how hyped I am. They even have a little pic of the album cover. I love the font!! Wicked awesome!

08-16-2006, 02:55 PM
i dont see much AY in it, its definitly more alternative and less hardcore. which will sell more albums, i see some definit christian CHR hits, and possible alternative rock, and AC mainstream potential. i think Whispers has a shot on Rock radio too!

and CJ nothing would be better than that, unless it was a song on thier acoustic EP calle, Looking for Angels Feat. Alexandra Cooper.

Wow. Thanks for finding this. I definately hear potential in some of these songs, some I'm dissapointed with. I was expected a harder sound.

"Those Nights" sounds a whole lot like Hawk Nelson, who I never expected I would compare Skillet to.

Not sure if I like the talking on "Looking for Angels" either.

I have to say that my favorite song so far is Say Goodbye.

Some of the songs took a little time to adjust to. When I first heard Angels, I was a bit put off by it, but I think it works pretty well. I'm very happy that every song doesn't sound exactly the same. That seems to be a growing trend in the music industry lately.

What's this TWELFTH song called?! lol, and i thought it was already like done and ready to go, they're aloud to do another song? and when can we hear full versions of these songs?! lol I am a lil disappointed, i was expecting something more like "Collide" but i will still get it the day it comes out, I can't believe they didn't do anything besides that for the cover, looks a lil plain to me, but w/e floats your boat!

I really like the cover, actually. And 10 bucks says the 12th song is Locked in a Cage.

terrasin
08-16-2006, 03:28 PM
It was only last weekend they were told to go back into the studio and do the 12th song, so it was pretty on the fly. John knows what song he is going to record so he had to this week to finish writing it and record it. You will probably hear the full versions when the album comes out, like always.

As for the cover... lets just say it was Atlantic's idea and leave it at that.

Ah darn, missed the clips of the rest... oh well whispers sounds good... totally sounds Tooth and Nail-ish now though (even the cover looks like the latest off the T&N assembly line) :( But its Skillet and the music wasn't really the main reason I really dug the band in the first place. Plus that seems to be what most people want when it comes to Christian rock so I have no doubt this one will be their biggest album yet so I'm happy for them.

Edit: Lol, apparently the links are removed but the actual sound files are not ;)

The cover looks ok. For some reason it really reminds me of Green Day which I don't like. I really like Rebirthing and the clip of Whispers that I heard but I'm a little disappointed that they didn't go as hardcore for this album as Collide. I was really enjoying the screaming and stuff that they were getting into. Regardless, I've been a Skillet fan since Invincible came out and they've gone through a few different sounds so I'm sure I'll love this album too.

I don't mind this new direction. It's different. In fact, I would be more disappointed if Comatose was exactly like Collide. Skillet changes, and without it, they lose that uniqueness. However, I don't like the Hawk Nelson comparison one bit. But I won't be complaining over low-quality 20sec clips.

mmm, i happened to snatch a listen to all the clips before they took um down :-X and i must say, im freakin stoked

from the tiny bit i heard sounds like theve got enough of the collidish sound left to still get some rock your face off, plus i think the softer and, if you will, 'poppyer' side of the album is really cool too, skillet puts a unique edge on it and i think it works really well with the strings and john vocals. but ya know, you cant relly know till the full album is out!!!!

timmyrotter
08-23-2006, 03:45 PM
yeah i didnt see skillet going in this direction... i was hoping it would be more like Orchastrated nu-metal. like Evanescence... Rebirthing and Whispers is like that. but the rest are like Sting or something... :)

terrasin
08-23-2006, 04:48 PM
This album has a good mainstream sound that will appeal more to the masses than it would have if they went harder. Plus, it kept their origionality than just duplicating what another band is doing. I'm actaully really thrilled with the results. And now they have a slow song as well that has the opportunity to become a "couples song" which is really something to be stoked about.

CJ

timmyrotter
08-23-2006, 04:55 PM
i agree with going more mainstream to gain publicity, but not the the pop genre. Evanescence's first album went like 9x platinum. they arent exactly mainstream... i jsut think if you have something good keep it. like collide, if they kept that sound and improved, it would have been incredible. if they keep switching genre's they can never improve on thier same sound. i still love em, and i'll listen to it. its just not what i expected.

Maugrim
08-23-2006, 06:59 PM
But, at least for me, I expect Skillet to morph into something a little different after each album. That's just what they do. I'm happy they aren't staying with one sound, experimenting is good.

Invincible/Alien Youth are similar but still not the same. HYILYS sounds way differnt from either of those two... Anyway, Invincible is more.. um.. techno/dance type music and Alien Youth is much more industrial. HYILYS is more electronica/synthpop or whatever...

Gryphenix
08-26-2006, 06:35 PM
As far as instruments and arrangement, the three cd's listed have very little in common. I will say that Skillet does have a certain way they arrange notes in all their cd's that, too me at least, is easily recognizable. Seriously, though, if John was not singing, I doubt you could tell HYILYS, Invincible, and AY were done by the same artist.
