Featuring tracks from 1996's 'Skillet', 1998's 'Hey You, I Love Your Soul', 2000's 'Invincible', 2001's Alien Youth' and 2004's 'Collide', this has all the power and passion of the best rock music while there are plenty of excellent lyrics dealing with everything from the dysfunctional nature of modern youth ("Alien Youth") to the majesty of the Godhead ("Savior").
