Bands To Watch #66 – Finger Eleven

By on Thursday, 8th January 2009 at 12:31 pm

Finger ElevenFinger Eleven are no newcomers to the music industry having been around since 1989 but the group have struggled to break through and establish themselves as another Canadian rock titan, but now it seems they are finally getting what they deserve having recently made headlines with their “Maroon 5 meets Foo Fighters” sound.  The track “Paralyzer” has been the subject of recent success and like a lost treasure, it was written years ago but has suddenly become a top download on itunes.

The band are capable of producing a great album, although none of their tunes seem to be chart topping hits, their consistent high quality and variety of talent makes them a great addition to anyones music collection. Over the years there has been plenty of material from the band to listen to and whilst you can rock out to tracks like “Paralyzer” and “Talking to the Walls” there are more steady melodic, acoustic tracks like “I’ll keep your memory vague” and “One Thing” that, for me, highlights the bands sheer quality.

If you buy an album by Finger Eleven you may not be looking at the shelves by the entrance of your local CD shop but whilst you may have to look slightly harder for a disk, you can be assured that with that purchase you’re going to be satisfied. Catchy, fast paced tracks will explode from the start while simple and soft songs will bring all the melody and ear pleasure you need.
