Breaking BenjaminDark Before Dawn

★☆☆☆ I’m giving this a star for good production. That said, this is one well-polished but tedious album. Once you get past the very slow beginning, and the alleged single “Failure,” the album opens up and reveals a few genuinely fun moments in its second half. But you know you’re in trouble when all you can aspire to is being Sevendust-Lite (especially if you miss the mark more often than you hit it).
