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.
