If you’ve listened to any rock music in the last sixteen years, chances are you’ve heard Finger Eleven. They topped the charts many times with their songs, ‘Paralyzer’, ‘One Thing’ and ‘Living In A Dream’.
Now, five years since their last release, Finger Eleven is back with their album “Five Crooked Lines”. It is definitely a way to come back for these guys, and an album you don’t want to miss out on.
The album has a rawer and true sound, which was a goal for the band. The songs go from softer rock to full on sound. It was definitely worth the five year wait.
I really enjoy how you can hear the evolution of Finger Eleven but yet through songs like ‘Criminal’, ‘Not Going To Be Afraid’, and ‘A New Forever’. ‘Criminal’ happens to be my favourite song off the album.
If you love rock music, or have missed Finger Eleven, pick up this album. It is probably my favourite from the genre of the summer.
I’m an aspiring entertainment journalist from Fredericton, New Brunswick, and a 2017 graduate from St. Thomas University with majors in Journalism and Psychology.
Aside from psychology, my passion has always been for music and storytelling. It is my dream to be in the industry, and music journalism seems to be the perfect fit. Along with a bit of photography dabbling, I think I’m pretty well on on my way.
When I’m not working, I’m listening to music, finding new artists to love, playing Dungeons and Dragons, or playing with my cats.
