After Collide, I was hoping Skillet’d stay in a hard rocking direction, but they immediately veered toward poppy, with a few solid heavy songs sprinkled throughout each album. Hope he gets an entire album out of this.

Collide is still my favorite of theirs for the same reason. I do like their last couple pretty well but Collide just really clicked for me.

I did dig Rise, as it felt like they did a good job of melding all their sounds, and the flow of the album felt very organic. The dancey singles for Unleashed turned me off, and I never checked the rest of it out. Is it worth listening to?

It is really worth it! It is a different kind of skillet, but still amazing. There are songs in it for everyone. But I’d prefer harder rock… All the time… XD

Hey, you were right! I checked out Unleashed, and while I don’t like it like I like Collide (YES! to harder rock all the time!), it’s a very enjoyable album. Even though it has some more modern pop touches I could do without, it has this constant momentum and positive, inspiring vibe that I really dug. It feels like the truest expression of John Cooper’s spirit, to be honest.
