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)

I agree. What I mostly think is that this was their showing of being stuck in the middle of pop and metal. It is sad yet cool at the same time. A definitely interesting song for an F11 fan like me.

I agree that this was the start of their decline. It's probably the only song off of the album that I can kind of enjoy.
