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.
Great variety and some song I really love to listen to, for example Falling Inside The Black and especially the kind of sequel, Whispers In The Dark. But the album is just too plain, and soft, and nothing special in Christian music industry.
