WOW!-the first thing that popped into my head when I first heard the album. Truly an incredible piece of workmanship, The Benjamin Gate’s 2002 release Contact is something most involving and fantastical! This album will definitely satisfy the hunger for more TBG.
"Of Benjamin he [Moses] said: 'The beloved of the Lord shall... dwell between His shoulders,'" reads Deuteronomy 33:12. Final words from an Old Testament patriarch are an odd source for understanding a 21st century rock band. But Moses's words speak all too directly of South Africa-born The Benjamin Gate, who cling to their Father's knees like children, always wanting to be held. Not to dismiss the "attitude" present here.
