I LOVE this album by the way. I consider Breaking Benjamin one of my favorite bands, but I don't really re-listen to them that much just because there has been a lot of "same-y" sound from them after four albums. "Dark Before Dawn" was great originally because we got NEW stuff by them, and it was awesome to get stuff from them after all these years. But three years later and all I really come back to that album is "Hollow" and "Ashes of Eden" because they feel unique.
With the addition of the new members, their songs feel three-dimensional now. Or at least way more so than before. Everything has layers to it. I love the addition of way more screams in this album, and it just feels like they've developed a new sound, at least for this album. I wish they would experiment with a different tempo in their music from time-to-time, but if this is the direction they are going, I can't wait for future records to come.
