Album Description
As soon as fans hear "COLLIDE", the Lava Records debut from SKILLET, they will know that singer and bassist John Cooper is true to his word. From the scorching hard rock songs like "Forsaken", "Savior", "My Obsession" and "Cycle Down", to the soaring ballad "A Little More", Skillet is ready to bring their awesome energy to a whole new audience. The four-piece rock band, led by Cooper, has toured relentlessly since they formed in the late 90s. Fueled by a love of hard rock and pop melodies, Skillet released several albums independently, and driven by their faith in the music, began to make an impact drawing huge crowds across America.

"Skillet's cd Collide is so massive, so edgy, so kinetic, that some may think I am gloating over it. Well, I am.

In the history of my life I have owned hundreds of cd's, and listened to hundreds of thousands of songs (no exaggeration) and after it all, I place Collide in the top 10. It is a grinding effort in the category of Rock, and is riddled with powerhouse vocals and Strong riffs. Over all, what sets it apart is its up-lifting uniqueness. I own every Skillet album ever made, and slowly over the years, it seemed they were lost in a tech-no'd oblivian. That may appeal to some, but Skillets debut album, though far from perfect, was pure rock. Then with each passing album, their sound changed until they sank into Alien Youth. Many incredible tracks came from these discs, such as "Kill me Heal me" "Locked in a cage" and "Scarecrow." But, as a whole, the albums seemed short of potential.

Now, rising from the ashes, comes Collide: Enhanced edition. Loosing half the band and taking on a female guitarist and drummer (his wife is one) seemed to some a tragedy, but in the end it was an awesome move. Their sound has evolved into a shattering, pounding, beautiful, motivational epic. It drenches the senses and gives clear messages on spirituality, abuse, pain, need, and most importantly, how to heal.

I could honestly be one of those hotheads that write a six mile long review, especially about something I am so passionate about, but I have said my peace. For fans of inspirational, grinding rock, buy Collide: enhanced edition. Skillet has been re-born. {- S.A.O.S.-}"
A Light in the Darkness!

"This album is the Christian answer to Linkin Park (who I also like btw)! Skillet has really reached a new level with this great album. There are several songs in this CD that could stand with the best of them out there. They put out that wonderful "alternative" sound that so many of us enjoy, with its drama and edginess; a bit of that "soul in torment grappling with life" sound that Linkin Park, and Limp Bizkit are so great at. But Skillet has the added dimension of a Christian optimism. Where the others are fatalistic and without light, Skillet's Christianity comes across in a blaze of light, cutting through the darker issues of life. They don't hide from the darker issues, they blast them out of the water!"
Ow, Baby, this CD is Awesome!

"I am a hard rock lover and my thirst for head banging metal has finally been quenched. Aaaaaaah!
This CD is one of the best. Lyrically and musically.
FORSAKEN: great sound. Love the guitars. But I hate to say that I can't understand its meaning. 4/5
SAVIOUR: Terrific song. I love the screams and lyrics. (I am the eyes inside of you, stare back at you.) 5/5
COLLIDE: Awesome! Such a deep meaning! I can really relate to this song. Just a hair of unneeded screaming. But what the hey, screaming's cool. 5/5
A LITTLE MORE: A nice break from the hardcore. But this isn't one of those dull ballads. This is actually one of my top favorites!
OBSESSION: Don't get me started talking about this one. This is just one extroadinary song that talks about our obsession with Christ. Message is similar to JESUS FREAK. 10/5 (Yes, it goes over the top.)
MY FINGERNAILS: Cool song. Without Jesus we can't do anything.4/5
IMPERFECTION: This song gives me a strange case of the chills. Good chills, mind you. 5/5
UNDER MY SKIN: I don't really care for this song. Its my least favorite song on the CD. 3/5
ENERGY: This is my number one favorite. 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,/5
CYCLE DOWN: Really good! Catchy! 5/5

My point: Get the Cd. If your a rock craver, you will not be let down. I guantaree it!"
