We Are Not Alone is a solid effort from Breaking Benjamin. As an album, it's sturdy and consistently paced; featuring themes that pop a spark in your imagination. The band's best offering thus far in their career.
IMO and excellent endeavor for the band after their debut entitled "saturate" which featured a decent alt metal/post grunge sound but with ultimatley poor lyrics.
This album steps up lyrical writing a fair bit as well as with much more memorable songs on this album. They sport a powerful sound and I like Burnley's voice which is deep melodic filled with desperation.
I enjoy this album
this is the one album i HAVE to get, the songs on this CD are amazing, Break My Fall gets an 11 out of 10 for me, along with Breakdown and So Cold...the great thing about this album is that they show how heavy they can go (Breakdown, So Cold, Away) but Ben really shows how well he can actually sing (Forget It, Rain) so by far, i might have to call this my favorite album O:
Breaking benjamin is a good band. Although some times they seem a little repetative. This album shows some of that. Although they show talent and do a very good job especially on so cold, sooner of later, and firefly. The point is Breaking benjamin is a good band with some good songs and this is a good album.
You should buy this album strictly for 'Firefly' and 'Rain'. The first is a great, simple rocker with a brilliant chorus and some intense drumming. The latter is a brilliant acoustic track you would not expect after hearing the rest of the album. They are two really different songs but make this album worth buying. Other songs like 'So Cold' and 'Sooner Or Later' are very good as well.
