TO BE HONEST, I HAVE YET TO BUY THEIR EP ALBUM, WHICH IS A SHOCK EVEN TO MYSELF BECAUSE I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS BAND. I HAVE BEEN A HUGE FAN SINCE I FIRST HEARD THEIR MUSIC OVER 2 YEARS AGO…BEFORE THEY WERE BIG ON THE MUSIC SCENE. (AT LEAST IN KANSAS WHERE IM FROM). I SAW THEM WHEN THEY OPENED FOR EVANESCENSE AND I WAS ALREADY HOOKED. THEN I RECENTLY SAW THEM WHEN THEY HEADLINED WITH THEORY OF A DEADMAN AND THE EXIES. THERE IS JUST NO NEGATIVITE VIBE AND THATS RARE FROM THE HARD ROCK SCENE. THEIR MUSIC GETS YOU IN A GREAT MOOD AND MAKES YOU WANNA JUST SCREAM AT THE TOP OF YOUR LUNGS. ITS GREAT. IF YOU DON’T HAVE ANY OF THEIR ALBUMS, YOU NEED TO CHECK ‘EM OUT. FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT DONT LIKE HARD ROCK, YOU WONT LIKE THEM BUT, THEN AGAIN, THERES A FIRST TIME FOR EVERYTHING.

a great debut for an amazing band. These guys do not fail to impress!
fav track: ALL OF THEM
like the band? check out saturate, We are not alone, and their new cd coming this summer, you’ll enjoy every minute of it
This is probably better then the normal CDs because of what songs it has. So Cold (Acoustic) is a good song, but may sound close to normal version (don’t have normal version). Blow Me Away is main reason I got this CD, it is in my opinion their best song. The only way to get it is the Halo 2 Soundtrack or this CD (if you get from sellers this cd costs a lot less). Lady Bug is a cool song and is one I love to hear. The live songs are good, but not as good as rest. If you like the band you will probably want to get this CD.
Breaking Benjamin is one of my favorite bands in the world! So when i heard about this cd, i just had to get it. Here’s my review:
1. So Cold Aucoustic-10/10-i liked it on WANA, I still like it now.
2. Blow Me Away-5/5-On the Halo 2 video game, it’s better than “ladybug”
3. Ladybug-1/5-A PUNK SONG ATEMT!!!!!!!!!!!!? Avril tried that, and thank god her fans (for some bizzare reason) like her.
4. Away (Live)-10/5-MY FAVE.!!! (On WANA + SC EP)
5. Breakdown (Live)-5/5-WICKED
The acoustic version of “SO COLD” is, in my opinion really beautiful. it really shows the bare bones beauty of this song and how great it is and how great this band is. THIS IS A BAND YOU NEED TO KEEP AN EYE OUT. great things are coming down the pike from BB. also on this EP is a song BB did for Halo 2 called, ironically enough, BLOW ME AWAY. this is one really great song. from the start to the end it is both something new while still retaining established BB sound. I love it. Now the third song on this ep is called LADY BUG but it did not really grab me but thats me. i just was not thrilled about this song.
the last two songs are AWAY & BREAKDOWN both of which are live and both of which are AWESOME and make up for any shortcomings. i will say here and now that if you ever get the chance, you should make an effort to see them live because they are one of the best bands i have seen when it comes to live shows. they completely own the crowd. i have seen them twice and both times they were TFGL (total f- godhead live) which is saying alot because the first time i saw them was opening for monster magnet @ the stone pony in NJ. I lover MM but BB blew them away. they were completly awesome. the second time i saw them headlining the starland ballroom and they were, again, amazing.
with that said, i leave you with the suggestion that if you like what you have heard from this band through radio or mtv etc..then you have not heard anything. their is much better stuff on album and i reccomend you check it out and like the title says, this ep has live stuff, one acoustic song and two studio songs so you get the total package and out of the 5 songs id say 4 are great. thats pretty good odds.
