Breaking Benjamin: Dear Agony

2009

Dear Agony was the follow-up to 2006’s Phobia which was a big step forward for the band. This album works really well as a follow-up and sounds like a natural progression of Phobia. One thing I really appreciate about this band is that they seem to always stay true to their established sound and style of rock. This album has the fines’ of a band that has been around for a while but looks back at its origins for bits of influence here and there. Dear Agony is an enjoyable listen that sits well with the rest of the bands catalog.
