5.0 out of 5 stars You can't get it in England 9 April 2003
By Aaron
Format:Audio CD
I've looked high and low for this album in the shops without actualy knowing YOU CAN'T GET IT HERE. I had to import the damn thing and was taken away by it all. As soon as the album starts you're drawn in!...It's like a mixture of the melodic sound of Iron Maiden, Lyrical content of Green Day, Sense of friendship of [spunge] but packing far more balls than them all put together thrown together in such a way that you really wont be able to stop yourself pressing play again. A must have!

Well, after purchasing Taproot and Godsmack on here, I saw that 'Other customers who brought this item also brought:' and I saw the name Breaking Point. Now... I'm always one for listening to new stuff with an open mind, in the hope of discovering that new, wonderful band that I should start to follow. Here's where I turn into Simon Cowell.
I listened to the album and... yeah. It just seemed very average. There wasn't any real material that made me want to sit up and listen to each song in depth, it just seemed way too manufactured to me.
Yeah, I've read the other reviews, and I can't seem to work out whether these people are calling is great because they genuinely like it (if you do... good on ya, it's just not my cup of tea), or whether 'Oh look, it has a guitar in it, it must be cool'. If you're the latter, shame on you !
I tried to like it - I promise! I listened to the album on repeat hoping that I'd hear something what would change my mind - alas, it didn't happen. The riffs just seemed all too similar throughout, and the lyrics seemed weak and just shoved in because it rhymed. It came to a point where one song merged into another. And yes, I took it off.
As I said, good for you if you like it - although to people who have listened to guitar Gods such as Santana and Via, and had the lyrics of bands such as Incubus and A Perfect Circle grace their ears, this album probably isn't right for you either.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great band with a bright future ahead of them! 14 Nov 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If there is one thing that can be said about Breaking Point, it is the fact that these songs are not empty, vapid fluff, but rock songs that offer the rock and soul of Memphis with lyrics that address real thoughts and emotions. From "Coming of Age" to "27," and "Phoenix" to "Live For Today," Breaking Point have delivered a record full of passionately fueled riffs and truly relevant lyrics that will capture an audience far wider than the success they've found in Memphis.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the best hard/alterna-rock CD's I have ever owned... 31 Dec 2004
By ecb41 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If you listen to mainstream radio today, you know that the number of modern and alternative rock bands out there seems to be growing exponentially. With such a large number of very similar artists, it's quite rare that we find that one sticks out above the rest. This is where Breaking Point comes in, and the sad thing is that you won't even get to hear them on those very radio stations. This also speaks volumes about the current state of radio-America, but that piece shall be saved for another day. This CD is not your derivative, soft verse/hard chorus music that circulates through the airwaves constantly; no, these guys cover all ends of the hard rock spectrum (although I don't believe I heard any solos, but I could be mistaken), from the epic title track, to the softer "Live For Today," all the way to the album's finale, the all out rocker "One of a Kind," which was actually just tacked onto this later pressing of the album (the band hadn't even recorded it at the time of the original of pressing of the album, but included it once it became the theme song for the WWF's Rob Van Dam. And yes, it was WWF, not WWE back in those days). Yes, many of the songs do tend to follow that softer verse/hard chorus formula we all know so well, but it is not driven into the ground and doesn't ever make the album seem stale. Even with this, the band makes the songs catch your attention, as each song has heaviness even when it goes through the softer moments. Let me put it frankly: you will not go from an acoustic, soft sung verse to a screamed hard chorus, the stereotypical routine for bands in the alternative rock genre. If I had to compare these guys to some more well known bands, I guess I would have to go with a more rocking, somewhat darker version of Nickelback, or maybe a less metal/more rock influenced Godsmack. Don't hold those comparisons against these guys though; I was really struggling to come up with something. The standout tracks on this CD would have to be "Coming of Age," with its extremely catchy and memorable chorus, "One of a Kind," because it is just a generally excellent rock song, and "Live For Today," with its acoustic beginning leading into the slightly distorted conclusion-makes for a very good build up. Other noteworthy cuts include "27," featured on "The Scorpion King" soundtrack, and "Brother," which actually features Josey Scott of Saliva. I would have given this CD 5 stars (and it actually should be 4.5 anyway), but the only thing that brought it down was the mere fact that it did have that cliched mainstream rock formula in it every now and then. Other than that, this is a beautifully crafted record, and a must have for anyone who wants (or needs) to see what real rock is all about, and yet can still remain accessible.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome cd, awesome show! 5 Nov 2001
By Nathan S. Vasquez - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I got these guys' album when i found out they were opening for the Fuel concert i was going to at the house of blues in hollywood, their cd is an awesome straight up rock album. something i can totally just put in and listen to anytime. i joined their Street Team and received a grip of singles and stickers to give out. when i went to the concert we got there early and they were just hanging out and we talked and we hung out for awhile and now they're giving me guest passes for their anaheim show at the disneyland house of blues! how awesome is that? these guys rock. support them if you can, their album is not a bad price for the good cd that it is. i totally recommend it if you love rock.

5.0 out of 5 stars Breaking Point rocks!! 10 Dec 2001
By Stephanie Stanley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The first time I listened to this cd, I was very impressed! Breaking Point is definitely one of the best new bands. Every song on this album is unique. From the very first track, Coming of Age, you are drawn into the music by the outstanding vocals and lyrics. The guitars on this album are amazing and range from the hard crunching sounds, to the gorgeous solos and harmonies that compliment the vocals. The rhythm section of this band really stands out. The bass tracks are full of incredible riffs that bring it all together. Every drum beat on this album is perfectly timed and brings a lot of energy and interest to the music. I highly recommend this album to anyone! Give it a try! You will not be disapointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a most have CD!! 13 Jan 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com

The first time I heard Breaking Point was at the Landmark Theatre in Syracuse, New York. Right after the concert, I went and got their cd. I have hundreads of great cd's but this one is at the top. If you buy one cd this year, this has to be it. There is no bad songs on it. The lyrics are awesome. It only has ten tracks but they are kick a**!
3.0 out of 5 stars Average present, very bright future 5 April 2003
By "bob613" - Published on Amazon.com

This is the kind of album I like to hear. Not because of it's own greatness, but after listening to this kind of album, you just know you've stumbled upon a band that will make great albums eventually. Want proof ? Just check out the last song on this album : One of a Kind. The original album didn't have that song. It ended at number 10, Under. One of a Kind was added later when they started playing it as Rob Van Dam's theme in the WWE. You can just hear the difference between that track and the others.
As for the rest of the tracks, they go from ok to pretty good. The main problem I see here is that Breaking Point seems to have a problem with the chorus part of the song. Coming of Age would have been excellent with a better chorus. Same goes with Live For Today. They aren't bad, it's just that they could have been better. There is one song I wouldn't change, and it is Brother. The lyrics are good and the part where Saliva's singer does his thing is just great.
Before my final thought, I'd just like to note that the cover art of the CD is really well done. So good job by the artists there. So, to sum it up, I actually don't recommand buying this album. I just know there's something much bigger just around the corner, waiting...
