Skillet – Awake
Skillet’s studio follow up to its breakthrough Comatose album will likely please a broader range of listeners while leaving longtime fans wondering what happened to the edgier sound from previous releases. From all appearances, the new Skillet is produced for radio play and should do well in that arena. The band’s lyrics, as always, remain solid to the core. One note: many are discussing how the song “Lucy” seems to address the grief of losing a child, possibly to abortion. Lead singer John Cooper says the song was written to address all times of loss.
