I credit this album (and this band) to introducing me to music. I've never been a fan of the genre, but this album resonated with me. I memorized the words to every song and played it more times than I can count. Although unfortunately weighed down with some unnecessary cheesy moments (see: Say Goodbye), overall Comatose is a fantastic album and one of the best modern rock albums of the last decade.
I learned about Skillet the same way everyone seem to find out about them, and by that I mean a random girl told me about them. Upon first listen of Comatose I thought it had a really great sound to it, maybe a few to many slow songs but all in all it was a very solid hard rock record. "Rebirthing" and "Whispers In The Dark" are my favorite on the record but there aren't any really bad songs on here. I appreciate the fact that while this is a Christian rock record it refrains from being to preachy and delivers some great hard rocking songs.
