Diamond in the rough
on 25 December 2003
Ever since your 10 year old kid brother got the first Linkin Park album its been an up hill battle for genuine music fans. With so much corporate, money grabbing music around these days, true music fans are having to dig a little deeper in order to get their hands on truly challenging and original music.
A handful of bands still manage to make music that maintains integrity and is true to the roots. Finger Eleven are one such band. After developing a dedicated fan base through sheer hard work and bloody mindedness, all their efforts are finally paying off.
This album, their third full length effort, sees the band veer between angst filled heavy rock and emotion filled slower songs. There is never a dull moment on the album. The roller-coaster ride that is 'Good times' and the lively 'The last scene of struggling' show the band at there most adventurous while slower numbers such as 'Thousand mile wish' and 'One thing' show the versitilty of the band whilst giving the album a very balanced sound.
When all is said and done, this album is a very good album. With no clear super hits, its the consistancy that the band maintain that is unique. Trust me when I say that this will be in your cd for a long time to come.
