After the sensational gold certified `Comatose' offered Skillet a mainstream breakthrough album in 2006 the line up of the band changed, with drummer Lori Peters being replaced by Jen Ledger. Whilst the line up has changed and Skillet has been renowned in the past from changing direction from one album to the next, `Awake' remains reassuringly similar to its predecessor. The orchestral seismic riff orientated rock tinged with eighties melody remains intact and although `Comatose' producer Brian Howes has been dropped in favour of Howard Benson, his influence remains, with many of the songs being co written with him; `Awake and Alive', `Don't Wake Me', and `One Day Too Late' being three of note.
`Awake' may lack any progression and critics will no doubt highlight the fact that this remains a safe release, but there's no getting away from the fact that this is an album of the highest quality. In the commercial modern rock genre, this stands on level par with some of the gems released so far this year from the likes of Adelitas Way or Daughtry; yes it's that good.
The monolithic `Hero' and `Monster'- already live concert favourites- typify the Skillet sound; hard-hitting guitar courtesy of the superb yet understated Ben Kasic, the raspy vocals of John Cooper, the resonate melody of the orchestral keyboards and the pay off choruses all show a band at the top of their game. The massive arena lighter waving ballads are still present and correct as they were on `Comatose'. `Don't Wake Me' and `Believe' tick all the right boxes, but Skillet leave the best until last with the spine tingling `Lucy' a song so good that it redefines the term power ballad.

Came across this by chance and am very happy I did. I was a bit put off by the christian rock thing. I can only recommend the album though. It is absolutley beautiful. Please get the Deluxe Version you can't miss out on "Would it matter". Very good indeed.

I have left it a while since this album came out in 2009 until now to get hold of it. But finally hearing the album properly, I am actually more impressed than I was expecting.
I have heard two previous Skillet albums and liked them, and how they often seem to change styles slightly for each next album. The previous one was a bit more bleak, darker, goth metal/rock sounding, and this one comes across much more immediate, faster, tighter songs. The songs are just as big and catchy and inspirational as usual, but this album seems to take a few more chances, it seems better or more modern in production. For fans of Linkin Park, Paramore, Nu Metal and just great modern rock and metal sounds. Great underrated band, great upbeat album.

This is the latest CD from Skillet.
This is a great CD. My favourite tracks include the outstanding Monster,The Heartbreaking Lucy is very moving,and Hero. Dont expect this to sound like previous albums as it has a very different feel because there music has progressed and is more produced.
