Just the font reminds me of their old stuff. It looks 'alienish'.

No way, Xavier is only around 2 years old.

Xavier is almost one. The kid is just some kid. He's supposed to look like the typical American.

Is it even a font? I don't think fonts can merge like that unless they are built in as a single image.

cha, for the album cover its obviosly a specially crafted image in place of a font. it could probably be emulated to a certain extent tho.

mmm, ok, i still want to know who that little boy is.

not that it matters at all, but reading this thread made me curious!

The boy is just a kid from a modeling agency most likely, as the cover was designed by Atlantic, not Skillet.

I really like the logo, but I feel like the artwork could've been better. The kid's not bad, but no one cares.

Collide was my favorite album cover. Hey You was kind of cool... The rest were blah, and this one is blah too IMO... but I like the new logo =D

no wonder I'm not crazy about it. :P oh well, I'll be buying it for the music anyway.

Never judge a CD by its cover I guess.

I like the CD cover too. I don't see how anything is really wrong with it. It's not very arty or anything but it's cool.

Its boring IMO... get something original and eye catching... I've seen a gagillion covers that look almost just like that.

And what does it mean anyway? A kid holding a plug... Collide had the whole "symbolism" stuff going on... and it looked cool :D

I still don't see the theme really Skillet is going for this time. The promo picture suggests one direction, the album cover suggests another and the music doesn't fit either... With Alien Youth the music was all industrial futuristic stuff with a futuristic "look" and digital cover art or whatever... Collides gritty cover matched their look and the hard rock style music. All their past albums have a cover that maches the look that matches the music. This one doesn't... its kind of like they're taking tabs from differnt creative groups telling them what to do and its not meshing very well... (I dunno if that all made sense but do you kinda get what I'm trying to say?)

DustinRocks

The cd is called comatose. While being in a coma you are on life support. So maybe the cover has a symbolence to growing up and pulling the plug. I see how it relates.

lamb_servant72
09-05-2006, 12:37 PM
I like that, Dustin. You're pulling the plug on your "life support"...all of the things you have trusted in, and you are fully dependant on Jesus.

It goes with Rebirthing.

JohnnyRocker

Just wait til you see what the album cover folds out to and then it will make more sense.

Way more eloquent that I could have put it. Exactly what I wanted to say.

I think that comatose/it's cover, means that we christians, as a whole, have been living like we are in a coma.

We have been going to church on Sundays, but that often times is as far as it goes. Sure we say we are christians, but we deny Him by our lifestyles. I know I have.

God, through Skillet and Comatose, is calling us to pull the plug, do something radical for Jesus. If we as christians aren't changing the world, then we aren't doing what he has called us to do.

I think the lead singer from Dizmas said something like this...
"Jesus died for us on the cross, its about time we start living like it."

Thats how I have looked at it, and I'm still in the process of changing from a "comatose" christian to radical one that doesn't care what the world thinks of me.

God Bless!
