5.0 out of 5 stars A hidden masterpiece!, 7 Dec 2002

(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: TIP (Audio CD)
I have been looking for a band like Finger Eleven for a long time now. A band with heavy guitars and a singer who does not see the need to shout at the top of his voice to keep up with them. This is no angry teenage rubbish this is real music.
The vocals are meaningfull and the singers voice is fantastic sharing many vocal trats with NINs Trent Reznor. The guitars sit between melodic and heavy distorted very nicely and feature some fantastically addictive riffs that are both heavy and technical. The drums keep the pace of the music perfectly. Finger Eleven use contrast between heavy and soft constantly through the CD and it is a effect that works brillantly, meaning most songs can remain melodic and heavy at the same. Stand out songs include: Tip, a amazing song in which the vocals and guitars riffs are linked perfectly and the effect is fantastic. Shudder, a great technical song which ranges through the melodic to the very heavy bridge and courus. Awake and Dreaming, a very slow and quiet song to begin with with a great tune which bursts into heavy guitars whilst maintaining the melodic vocals, fantastically done and a very powerful song. Above, one of the faster heavier songs, features very addictive riffs and the vocals become aggresive towards the end in a powerful finally to the song, a great display of the bands skill in all regions of the rock/metal genre. Overall this is a fantastic album and simply must be owned if you are a fan or the genre. Unfortunaly none of the bands material has never come out on official release in the UK, but you can get the cd on this site for a very good price, well worth doing. Also check out the bands second album "greyest of blue skies" which is heavier but still fantastic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Album, one of the best I ever heard, 18 Aug 2000

This album is a masterpiece! I can listen to the cd over and over again, and I just can't get enough of it. Even though I had to import it (which is really expensive) it was worth every single penny... I can only recommend this album to everyone, and I hope to see Finger Eleven in the charts soon... look out for their second album "The Greyest of Blue Skies"!

5.0 out of 5 stars excellence, 18 Jun 2000

This review is from: TIP (Audio CD)
This is a brilliant album. You soon reliase that this is a cd that must be listened to LOUD. Every single song expresses emotion and feeling from Thin Spirits to the immense masterpiece of Temporary Arms. The interweaving of loud with soft works well. I'd recommend this album to everyone.
