Breaking Benjamin ist eine sehr eigene Band.
Benjamin Burnley hat zwar eine großartige Stimme und die Band hat talentierte Musiker, aber sie schaffen es nicht ein Album herauszubringen, das zur Gänze toll ist.
Auch hier werden sehr guten Songs wie "Rain", "Breakdown", "Away" oder "Simple Design" schwache, langweilige Songs entgegengestellt. Die eine Hälfte des Albums ist gut, die andere nicht, simpel gesagt.
Das Album hat noch dazu kaum Konzept und lyric-technisch auch nur Mittelmaß. Über das seh' ich mal hinweg und drück' ein Auge zu und runde auf 4* auf.
***
As a side-note, I am surprised that Breaking Benjamin have never cracked the top 50 in Australia with any of their albums. In any case, this doesn't feel cohesive enough for me to enjoy it all the way through. At times they're able to really hit home a strong riff but so often this was let down by rather poor vocals. The result is that many of the tracks fall over, and even the few efforts they made in toning things down for a ballad seemed to come across as disingenuous. They're not a very versatile band but it's hard to pin down why I like parts of this regardless. The standout was 'Simple Design'. 3.5
***
I used to not mind Breaking Benjamin so much when this album came out. The singles were all over music TV and my friends used to like it so naturally I did too. But the album just doesn't work very well sadly. I enjoyed So Cold and Sooner or Later but Rain is so cringeworthy and really brings the album down for me. I also didn't like the excessive screaming. Still an alright effort, although I haven't heard much else from them tbh. 3.4/6.
