Sound — 10
Breaking Benjamin's 2004 release We Are Not Alone is their best album out of the 3 they've recorded. So Cold is easily the best track on there. Rain gives you a different feel for the band, as it's acoustic guitar throws their rock sound off a little bit. But, of course, that was their first song ever recorded.

Saturate, Breaking Benjamin's first album, was not exactly what you'd call "radio-friendly". He cussed a little bit too much in about every song. They've toned it down a bit in this album, which has great lyrics. Ben Burnley still gives the band a great sound, as he will for their next few albums. Sometimes he sings great, but at times he just screams into the microphone, and it gets on my nerves. Especially on track 11, Believe, he yells into the microphone in every chorus, kind of drowning out the guitar. If you've never heard Breaking Benjamin, buy this or their 2006 release Phobia, which includes the Diary of Jane and Until The End.
Overall Impression — 9
We Are Not Alone is definitely a step above Saturate. All of the songs are great, except for Break My Fall, which I just plain don't like. It has bad singing and bad guitar music in general but that's just me. I recommend this album to everyone who's interested!
