Shallow Bay - The Best of Breaking Benjamin (Deluxe Edition)
Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download music.
It only makes sense for Breaking Benjamin to bequeath a best-of album — they’ve been at it for over a decade and with four albums in the can (and some stellar B-sides and rarities peppering the deluxe edition), Shallow Bay: The Best of Breaking Benjamin is an apt celebration of their journey thus far. The first half chronologically sequences all their singles starting with their first recorded song, the post-grunge hit "Polyamorous" which landed the band a deal with Hollywood Records. The catchy “Skin” follows — since Breaking Benjamin hardly ever play the tune live, this one has become a coveted fan favorite. The brooding “Medicate” shifts gears with the kinds of pensive lyrics and detuned guitars that never would have happened without Nirvana and a big anthemic stadium chorus that owes a lot to Stone Temple Pilots. A remixed version of “Blow Me Away” turns up with the honey-voiced Valora contributing some guest vocals. From the 11 tracks that make up the deluxe edition it’s hard not to fall for a heavy cover of Depeche Mode’s “Enjoy the Silence.”
This band is the band that introduced me to rock and they are my favorite band of all time! I've been hearing dumped and media talk over the possible end of breaking Benjamin, and of course this was devastating news to me. The dispute of the remix of blow me away being done without bens permission made him fire Aron and mark. Hopefully they can work this out or somehow settle the dispute because these guys are too dang talented to let this end them for good. The rock genre can't afford to lose a band like this, and neither can all of their fans. My fingers are crossed this best of album isn't the last.
I own all there music and to be honest everything this band plays is great. Ive seen them in concert just all around great guys!!!
Love love love this band!!!!!
