FINGER ELEVEN are an alternative metal and hard rock band formed in 1989 under the name RAINBOW BUTT MONKEYS.

(Alternative Metal Period: 1989-2003)

In 1995, RAINBOW BUTT MONKEYS released their debut album, Letters from Chutney, which achieved moderately great success in Canada upon its release. It also gave birth to 3 different singles from it as well during the 90s.

In 1997, the band changed their name to FINGER ELEVEN and released their second debut album, Tip to the public. Instead of having their original funk-metal sound, they came out with a heavy alternative metal type of sound instead. It released 4 singles, and two of the four were featured on the Mainstream Top Rock Hits (Above & Quicksand).

FINGER ELEVEN released a follow-up alternative metal album called Greyest of Blue Skies in 2000. It put out another 3 singles, and was certified Gold by the RIAA in Canada. Songs from the album

Finger Eleven - Five Crooked Lines

'Five Crooked Lines' is the sixth studio album, seventh if counting Rainbow Butt Monkeys, by hard rock/metal band Finger Eleven. Finger Eleven's alternative metal masterpiece 'Tip', remains one of my favorite albums of all time, but after 'The Greyest of Blue Skies' they started to mellow out a bit switching to hard rock on their self-titled. Unfortunately, after the success of songs like 'One Thing', they went to a bland funky pop-rock sound on the following releases. However, this album ditches the style of the previous albums for the most part.

Instead of a modern hard rock sound, Finger Eleven takes influences from classic hard rock for the most part. The influences that creep in the most to me are classic bands like Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Black Sabbath, and stoner rock/metal bands like Queens of the Stone Age and Clutch. Immediately we are given the appropriately titled 'Gods of Speed', which begins with fast fuzzy distorted guitar work with some great complementary drum work. I especially love the chorus, which keeps the same fast guitar playing under the atmospheric vocals from Scott Anderson. I think this song is a perfect example of a band playing with intense speed yet managing to be melodic and atmospheric at the same time. The fuzzy guitar sound also shows up in the next song 'Criminal', except the song is much slower then the previous. During the bridge of the song, there's some Black Sabbath-esque riffs. It ends with some really nice fast drum work.

The song 'Save Your Breath' just screams Clutch, with it's distorted guitar sound and Anderson's vocals having that gutsy tone of Clutch vocalist Neil Fallon. However, like most of the album, there are the more mellow passages. Also featured on the album is Finger Eleven's longest song to date, 'Come on, Oblivion' clocking in at 7:17. This song beings with guitar harmonics and great atmospheric bass work that reminds me of Pink Floyd, Anderson's great vocals soon come in. It picks up with heavy guitar riffing, while keeping the Floydian atmosphere. Another Floyd-influenced song is 'Lost for Words', which begins with menacingly beautiful guitar harmonies playing over crashing guitar. During some parts of the song, Anderson's vocals almost remind me of David Gilmour when combined with the plodding acoustics and serene guitar harmonies.

So as I've stated, the album has a perfect mix of heavy rockers and atmospheric tracks. Especially the title track has a catchy blues-y beat. However, while the majority of the album is amazing, there are a couple really mediocre songs that are reminiscent of the bland funk rock of the previous two albums. Those unfortunate two are 'Wolves and Doors' and 'Blackout Song', which both basically sound like they're trying to be hit singles. However, these don't hinder my enjoyment of the album much, the other songs more then make up for the two lame tracks.

Overall, I find this to be Finger Eleven's best album since 'The Greyest of Blue Skies', and my personal second favorite of theirs after 'Tip'. It's true, Finger Eleven may be finished with their melancholic metal past, but I think they're also finished with their funk-y pop rock. I can tell they're a band that wants to evolve and just enjoys making music, and if this classic rock/hard rock style is going to be what they're going to making for a bit, I'm in full support. I can't wait for more. Hope you found this review helpful.

With the release of Them Vs. You Vs. Me in 2007, Canadian rockers Finger Eleven had diverged into two paths. One being what was explored in the aforementioned; blatant and unforgiving commercial alt. rock, or in the case of the prior self titled a more realistic yet undoubtedly watered down version of their early metal aesthetic. The latter I preferred mostly due to pretty obvious reasons, largest of which being the fact that it sounded simply more creative and like they were actually trying. 2010 broke the monotony with Life Turns Electric, giving new light towards following music, yet still yielding a view that was shrouded in the uncertainty of their future. Five Crooked lines was eventually announced on the bands Facebook page to much trepidation from me.

As of today the album has been available via stream and I garnered a listen. Here are my overall thoughts:

My general consensus is that it doesn't take much from TvYvM and more from the self titled. Good thing of course. Classic grunge makes it's way more into the musical rhythm as opposed to the watered down funk that Finger Eleven had attempted in the past.The album also features perhaps their longest song, 'Come On, Oblivion' at 7:17. As expected there are one or two tracks attempting to be the next 'Paralyzer', the bands number one track ever since it was released. The more prominent of these copies is 'Wolves and Doors', and excruciatingly boring downgraded "hard rock" song that was largely advertised in hope that it would indeed succeed the 2007 song, to no avail.

As a whole Five Crooked Lines is something stale, but it does indeed shine where it needs to. The band indeed has assuaged my worries and broken the mold of mediocrity. If you are interested, something to compare the album is as a whole is indeed the self titled, but with less awful tracks.

Finger Eleven-Tip

'Tip' is the first studio album by alternative metal band Finger Eleven. Some may consider 'Tip' to be Finger Eleven's second studio album, seeing as they released the album 'Letters From Chutney' under the name of Rainbow Butt Monkeys. Although it is the same band, they did change their sound from a funk metal style to a more unique alternative metal style.

Many of the songs on this album sound different from the sound of Finger Eleven on later albums. It has an overall much more melancholy sound, and sounds very different from other albums from the time I've heard. The album is able to combine the grunge of 'Letters From Chutney', and a much darker melancholy sound into a very well constructed mix. If I could compare it to any album from around the same time, it would be Tool's 'Undertow'.

The album begins with one of my favorite songs on the album 'Quicksand', which combines a melancholy sound with a heavy chorus. It also combines some grunge elements, making this a pretty unique song. The title track is another one of my favorites, where Scott Anderson gives a very strong vocal performance and the guitar really shines. 'Shudder' may be my favorite on the album where in parts it reminds me a lot of Porcupine Tree, especially the bridge. The bassline sounds great combined with the melancholy feel. The album ends with a surprisingly beautiful melancholy track 'Swallowtail', which again reminds me a lot of the style that Porcupine Tree would develop later. The drum beat combined with slow build-up of the guitar works really well.

Overall, 'Tip' is a very underrated album. It set the standard for a lot of alternative metal to come, and is quite a big accomplishment for a band switching from a funk metal sound to such a unique style. I highly recommend this album for any metal collection.

Hope you found this review helpful.

Oh god, what is this....

After Finger Eleven released their self-titled album, they also launched many successful singles. One of these was the fan-favorite called 'One Thing'. The single was the best selling of the self-titled's releases, and is one of their most liked songs to date. Let me just tell you now, that song is terrible. I don't like the slow, soppy crap those type of songs give me, especially when they are coming from a alt metal/hard rock band. Many people disagree with me on this. Many people also like this sort of junk, which I can't understand.

After 'One Thing' reached massive popularity, the members of F11 decided to take the rejected demos of One Thing and make it into an album. Still having some space, they added what seemed to be failed Rainbow Butt Monkey demos like 'Paralyzer' and 'Easy Life'. The album of course achieved massive success in the Pop community, and the music industry ate this shit up.

Thus reigns the era of constant TvYvM songs being played at any Finger Eleven performances, with the rare instance of a Greyest of Blue Skies or Tip songs. Not to mention 'One Thing' was another constant and popular play, with other songs from F11's self titled, such as 'Good Times', 'Absent Elements', and 'Complicated Questions' being constantly being pushed back on the roster. The album's popularity was mostly extinguished in the light of F11's 2010 album, Life Turns Electric.

Overall, this album is an obvious, money-hungry pop rock album that does not deserve the popularity it deserves. Buy the bonus tracks though; the title track for this album is pretty good.

I do not recommend this album.

1.Paralyzer

When Finger Eleven released their fourth studio album, "Them vs. Me vs. You", they finally reached critical reception when their hit single, Paralyzer was released. People started flocking in to listen to it, and still today, Paralyzer is their most listened - to song. The song starts catchy enough, with a nice but really dimmed down version of their original guitar-work. Anderson comes in with nice nostalgic vocals, however the song stays practically the same throughout. With this constant receptivity, you are greeted with the realization that this song is about 'clubbing'. Clubbing as in where you get so hammer-drunk that you end up passed out in a garbage disposal outside, and honestly, this song makes me sort of feel like that. Finger Eleven being my favorite metal band, with such masterpieces as "Tip" and "Greyest of Blue Skies", this song is a huge disappointment to any great fan of F11. Sadly, people who flock to listen to this song don't listen to anything before "TvYvM", but I can still accept that this song is okay, and shows that F11 hasn't quite lost their touch. (6/10)
