So I have a very good friend who's going to be graduating from High School in a few weeks, and as a graduation gift, I was planning on getting him Phobia, by Breaking Benjamin. I don't really have a lot of experience with BB, all I really know from them is what I heard in concert. So I'm hoping that someone is a fan here.

So, what I'm asking is
1)would this be a good choice, or do they have any better works?
2)are there any other bands that sound like BB that he might like? (as some side notes, he introduced me to Disturbed, Three Days Grace, and Nickelback )

I hope someone can help me, this guy really means a lot to me and I want to get him a gift that will really fit him.
