Album Review

Fans of the depressingly bleak emo genre should take note of a band like Benton Falls, because they carry that introspective and heartfelt banner with no shame whatsoever. With songs about heroes on heroin and the facade of pleasantries at high school reunions as well as the usual, yet tender romantic songs, Fighting Starlight hits upon those poignant, definitive moments in life. With Benton Falls the music is lazy and dark, so one might be able to slip past the edgy lyrics if they so dared, but they'd be making a big mistake in doing so.
