iTunes Review

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.

Customer Reviews

missing track from Deluxe Edition

Did anyone notice the track Had Enough isn't on the Deluxe Edition? Thats kinda bull. Also, they didn't break up over this album. The lead singer has serious health issues so they're taking a break. Lets hope he gets better and they return!


If you're truly a Breaking Benjamin fan, you'll boycott this album due to the fact that Ben Burnley didn't authorize the creation of this mix.

Breakup album

This album is why the band broke up. Aaron Finke and Mark James, lead guitar and bass, signed over the rights to Blow Me Away without Ben's permission. Seeing as he has possession of all the rights to the bands music and the name itself they had no right to authorize a remix. Ben has a disease that was brought about by alcoholism as he himself has admitted that he is a recovering alcoholic. That is the reason the band cancelled the remaining shows of their last tour and went on hiatus. Do your research people. The band will be back and they will continue to produce amazing music. As for this album, Ben has disowned it saying that it is a collection of good Breaking Benjamin songs and not the best. And if Ben has disowned it, I refuse to buy it.

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Pennsylvania natives Breaking Benjamin, named after founder and lead singer Ben Burnley, play a brand of metal-tinged alternative rock that came to define the sound of mainstream rock in the early 2000s. Indebted equally to the minor-chord dirges of first-wave grunge rockers like Alice in Chains and the pyrotechnic bombast of vintage arena rock, Breaking Benjamin became one of the most popular rock bands in the United States, scoring a number one with the single "Breath" in 2007. Two of their albums,...
