Benjamin: We Are Not Alone
By: Traci Curtis
Benjamin would have to try hard to make a CD I don't like. Fortunately,
they made another phenomenal CD. Their follow up to Saturate
shows they have matured lyrically and musically, yet kept the same
passion from the past.
With So Cold going
strong on radio stations all over and the video channel FUSE, they
are hitting the road with Evanescence,
While frontman Ben Burnley
needs no help writing songs, the band made a wise choice recruiting
Billy Corgin of Smashing
Pumpkins to pen three tracks. Forget It, Follow
and Rain really sound like Corgin tunes, but sound even better
with Burnley's voice. Those songs are a bit more laid back but Breaking
Benjamin makes up for it with the energy in Breakdown and
I have seen the band
play since "back in the old days" and I am incredibly impressed
and proud with how far they have come. They continue to put out
amazing tracks and perform with every ounce of energy possible.
All of their songs are
available for sampling on their web site.
