Best Skillet Albums


The Top Ten

1 Comatose

While the softer songs dilute it, Whispers in the Dark instantly made this an all-time favorite with most of the people I knew (and with me as well). Some of the songs on here, outside of Collide, I think is the only album that flirted with metal (instead of the radio or "pop culture") and did an awesome job at it!

Comatose and Collide are the best Skillet albums because they don't lack that creative spark that Awake and Rise was missing dearly. In fact, I don't feel bad to say I do not like either album anymore.

Definitely the best with Whispers in the Dark and Comatose, Even though it was a little soft due to mainstreamness you gotta give awake some credit though

This is skillet best album it has amazing songs like rebirthing comatose falling inside the black and whispers in the dark and this album has awesome bass I can't listen to this album when out busting my speakers almost

2 Awake

Channeling the voraciously symphonic, progressively-tinged rock-metal of Comatose into a far more melodic and bombastic framework, the passionately energetic record is streamlined by nature yet ambitious in practice. Ultimately, it is their pinnacle critically and commercially, with no other effort by the band quite achieving the soaring heights of 'Awake', whether it be the subdued introspective-melancholy of "Lucy" or the fiery inferno of "Hero" or the technically-inclined "Dead Inside"; and, of course, it is their strongest selling and charting album to date. - JR302


With Awake and Alive, Dead Inside, Monster, It's Not Me It's You, Hero, Don't Wake Me Up, One Day Too Late this has to be the best album.

First album to feature the gorgeous Jen Ledger on drums as well as having 3 of their mega hits: Hero, Awake and Alive and Monster. While the tone is generally soft the songs have such meaningful lyrics and are sung with such passion that you'd have to be cold hearted to hate.

3 Collide

Collide is my favorite album, Invincible is a close second

By far Skillet's heaviest and most aggressive album so far, this album has a lot of power, and Collide and Savior are so awesome.
I honestly love Collide, Comatose and Awake equally, all three are amazing albums. - EvilAngel

Skillet's heaviest album. Comatose was my favourite Skillet album until I heard this.

Collide's lyrics are just so much more powerful than any other album of theirs. Like open wounds, savior, collide, forsaken, and my obsession better than Rise and and Awake but not better than Comatose

4 Rise

Rise and not gonna die are my favourites so.

It has some awesome songs including rise, not gonna die, and sick of it. - jakebot04

The lyrics are a lot more passionate, which has always been the thing I like about skillet. Also, there is more of Jen Ledger than Awake, which makes this special.

Alive is their latest album. John Cooper tries out completely new sounds and really does a great job of mixing the old Skillet with some techno sounds.

5 Alien Youth

Get this above Unleashed NOW!
Unleashed is good, but Alien Youth is EPIC - courier28

Best album ever songs like alien youth, vapor, earth invasion, kill me heal me
It's just a great album
I know it sounds alieny and all but I gotta say I'm impressed
I know it's not as gd as awake or comatose but it's definitely a great album you gotta get it

6 Unleashed

For me is the best a lbum of skillet srry for others but I'm prefer this album

From my standpoint, this is definitely their best album followed by Awake and Comatose...I downloaded it with the intent to receive at least a couple of Bad Ass songs...but boy I was so overwhelmed that I couldn't delete a song...almost 95% of the album was brilliant...with each song had some special distinctive quality that appealed to my senses...

This is ' bold and ultimately addictive! I get it that people do not tolerate the new sound in the album, but they can't keep recycle "Comatose" or "Awake" over and over or "Collide" for that matter. They have once again show us why are they Skillet.

This album is alright in my opinion. Although I'm not a huge fan of the pop vibe to it, I'm glad skillet actually changed their style a little bit instead of repeating comatose on their previous records. - Metalmaniakkk

7 Comatose Comes Alive

This album acts as a greatest hits compilation, and also exhibits just how amazing they sound live, as well as their fantastic stage presence. I don't normally like live albums, but this album is simply phenomenal.

Just listen to the song live free or let me die... You will be amazed it's an awesome song from this album!

8 Invincible

This album is awesome. The melody and all are superb. I'm in love with it right now. Just listen to rest, invincible, each other and best kept secret.

A good Christian album

Ranking this one last destroys the ranker's credibility in my eyes. This is my absolute favorite Skillet album. So raw and exciting.

Extremely underrated 1st album. Been a Panhead since.

10 Hey You, I Love Your Soul

Who says this is skillet's worst album, I know it isn't the best but its awesome. Songs like hey you I love your soul, whirlwind, scarecrow are even more awesome. You must give it a listen.

Great Album!

The Contenders

11 Ardent Worship

This album, while it's not really a Skillet album per se, is a fantastic worship album that is spiritual and really makes me want to raise my hands up to God. How can this possibly be labeled as the worst? It's better than Hey You, I Love Your Soul by A LOT.

Solid worship album.

12 Awake and Remixed (EP)

This remix album is just the thing for remixed lovers like me. In this album, awake and alive is more awesome than the real track and in monster, jen ledger's female part was awesome.
