    AMAZING!!

    The Awake cd by Skillet definitely keeps you awake. If you are looking for a christian cd that is original and sounds awesome then look no more. This cd has some amazing songs on it. It's the kind of cd that you can let play all the way through without getting bored of a song. This cd is one that you can play over and over again.
