Breaking Benjamin is an excellent band. I have both of their studio albums and their EP. I don't think there is a bad song on any of the CD's.

Breaking Benjamin is a very impressive band. They have excellent songs and their lead singer has a unique, distinguishable voice. I have both of their CD's and will DEFINITELY be the first one to get their new CD when it comes out in August.

They sound pretty generic to me.

Does anybody notice how short their songs are becoming now? Compare to Saturate, We Are Not Alone is pretty short. And so is their new single, Dairy of Jane. Kind of bug me a little.

Still, a very tight band.

Just played Medicate and Polyamorous. Very easy to play, but very good, and very fun.

I always have liked them. They have a real distinct sound. Some of their music sounds reqal cool, too. Most notably Breakdown and Blow Me Away. The guitar lines are strong and Ben's vocals are intoxicating.

I know. We Are Not Alone is only 39 minutes compared to Saturate being 49 minutes.

#17
OMG i just pulled out the Saturate CD again and i refell in love with it. I forgot how good that Cd was. I'm putting We Are Not Alone on the back burner for now, cuz im getting a little tired of it and rockin out with my **** out to Saturate. I can't wait to get Phobia. I bet it'll be bitchin.

Yeah I have and what was Benjamin's orange-brown colored one in the first podcast?


The one i think you are talking about is a PRS (the one hes playing in the last part of the first podcast. On episode 2 i think hes playing a Gibson and Aaron is playing like an Ibanez or something?? Anyone else know?. The songs tuned in Drop A# so they are most likely playing baritone guitars. I wonder why they dropped the tuning so much. Saturate was Drop C# and alot of We Are Not Alone was C or C# i think...
#20
I heard their single So Cold, And I thought it sounded really neat and different, Godd enough to get me to buy the CD, but I thought that the rest of the CD was quite sameish, which is a shame because I thought So Cold was so original, and I think they could've had a better CD if they made more songs like that.
#21
I work at a record store and just found out that they'll be doing an in-store with us on Aug 12th or 13th, signing ****, I guess.

I almost agree completly for you except there is one song by them that I cannot stands, which is Forget It off of We Are Not Alone. Seems too repeatitve and tooo slow.
Quote by Pan-Tallica
I'd sig that, but I don't sig things. Therefore, this entire post was unnecessary.
