On Skillet's fourth studio set, Alien Youth—its heaviest to date—the Christian industrial rock act fuses the edgy sounds of Orgy and Stabbing Westward with powerful professions of faith.

On Skillet's fourth studio set, Alien Youth—its heaviest to date—the Christian industrial rock act fuses the edgy sounds of Orgy and Stabbing Westward with powerful professions of faith. The result is a mainstream-leaning album packed with integrity and fully capable of being a leader in this era of expanding worship genres. The cuts shake with the energy of a live performance, with a rousing crowd easily imagined behind the anthem-like title track. And many would eagerly seek a shoulder from the shared testimonies in "Will You Be There (Falling Down)."—JKV
