    So I have been a fan of Breaking Benjamin since they began, but sadly as for Dear agony goes I am not digging it as much as past albums. Also I may of not gave it enough time as some song are good but others are nothing special to me.

    Any other Breaking Benjamin fans have any thought on the new album, likes or dislikes
    I think music in itself is healing. It's an explosive expression of humanity. It's something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we're from, everyone loves music

    I think they sound similar to Disturbed, sometimes.
    The guitar and the way the guy sings in "Diary of Jane" is an example.
