If there were one CD I
wanted to convince the world to buy, it is Saturate.
How often do you hear
a song and just think, "Wow!." That is what it is like
to listen to Breaking
Benjamin. Their first radio single Polyamorous is getting
airplay all over the country and they just wrapped up their tour
opening up for 3 Doors Down.
Influenced by Tool,
Nirvana and Korn,
the band began in Wilkes-Barre, PA and got attention from record
labels when Freddie (music director and DJ at WBSX) took them on.
He heard their music and knew they had something special. Hollywood
Records and legions of fans agree.
Every song on the CD
has memorable lyrics (even if you don't know what Polyamorous
means). The Wizard of Oz-themed Home is my personal
favorite because you can hear the passion and longing in lead singer
Ben Burnley's voice. There are plenty of other songs on the CD that
are perfect for the airwaves such as Medicate and Water.
Even though I said I
wanted to convince everyone to buy the CD, you can listen to the
songs on their web site for free. The songs will convince you, more
than my little ole review will, that Breaking Benjamin is a band
you need to know.
