Editorial Reviews

2010 album from the Alt-Rock outfit. Following the success of consecutive Gold-certified releases (the self titled Finger Eleven and Them vs. You vs. Me) Finger Eleven returns with Life Turns Electric, featuring the hit single 'Living In A Dream'.

Customer Reviews

Instant hit, if given the chance, and is highly recommended for fans of "One Thing".
Kyle
From that point on, they transformed their style into something that is completely different and much worse than their old sound.
Me
The tunes are not copy-copies like so many songs on other albums, a good variety of music on this one.

Let me put the disclaimer out there before anything else: I'm one of the self-proclaimed "old fans". I first heard Finger Eleven when I saw them live in 1998 opening for *cough* Creed *cough*(hey, I was 16 and nobody ever played shows in my town). James Black came on stage wearing a gas mask, Scott Anderson jumped around like a maniac, and they completely rocked my face off. I was in love with their sound from the first song.

By 2003 I was still a huge fan and supporting them all I could. I had enormous visions of where this band could go, and their technique of experimenting with sounds and textures within relatively simple pop-rock structures put some ideas in my head of more progressive albums coming from them in the future. The self-titled album of that same year proved to be something else altogether; it almost felt like a sidestep. It was apparent that a lot of experimentation was going on within what the band was familiar with, mostly with song structure and putting more emphasis on the rhythm section. This wasn't necessarily a bad thing, and it spawned a handful of pretty good songs. It looked like things might be interesting for their next album...

Then came 2007's Them vs. You vs. Me, arguably the most polarizing of any albums Finger Eleven has released. "Old fans", for the most part, went ballistic over the change in direction of the music. I gave it a chance, but it really only got a couple of spins in my player before it was shelved. I just couldn't get past how generic everything sounded. It reminded me of every other Top-40 radio band out there. I honestly could not find a single song that connected with me, and I felt let down.

It's hard not to think of Finger Eleven without thinking of the band they started as. MuchMusic darlings, decked out in baggy jeans and prototypical late `90s/early `00s haircuts, with a unique sound falling somewhere between Our Lady Peace and Korn. But times change, and so to have Finger Eleven, much to the chagrin of their core fanbase. Their fifth album, "Life Turns Electric" finds the band striving to follow up a string of radio-hits that started in 2003 with "One Thing" and continued with 2007's undeniably catchy and unavoidable "Paralyzer". What this means is that they are straying even farther away from where they started, heading down an undoubtedly mainstream path, and it doesn't appear as if they are ever going to look back. Hey, a band's gotta eat, right?

Sure, Finger Eleven cannibalize themselves a bit on "Life Turns Electric" -- most noticeably with "Living in a Dream" which attempts to redress "Paralyzer" in hopes of a quick hit -- but as a direct follow-up to "Them Vs. You Vs. Me" you might be surprised by how strong and consistent it actually is. The album was self-produced by the band's two guitarists, James Black and Rick Jackett, so it should come as no surprise that this is a very guitar-driven record. The album's two opening numbers, "Any Moment Now" and "Pieces Fit" are bursting with energy and tasty licks from the twosome and get things started on a strong note. "Whatever Doesn't Kill Me" and "Good Intentions" find the band mired in middle-of-the-road material, yet singer Scott Anderson comes through with a passionate performance to save the day as he always has.

So, Finger Eleven has been my favorite band since their self titled album, and "Therapy" remains my favorite song of all time (which is saying something; I have 2,000 songs and counting.)Tip and GOBS were great, and I could see how they fine tuned their hard rock sound till they got songs like "Stay in Shadow". When Them vs You vs Me came out and I heard "Paralyzer" i thought, "AMAZING song, if it wasn't Finger Eleven..." Their sound was not the same anymore. The whole album was mediocre, and didn't seem focused. You went from "Lost My Way" to "Window Song", and didn't flow smooth.
Cue Life Turns Electric.
While it sounds more mainstream than their first 3 albums (die-hard fans, you've been warned), it is MUCH better than the last album. WAY more focused (guitars chug much more, just like the old days...)has amazingly catchy riffs (could identify every song within days of owning it)and has a potential radio hit with "Stone Soul". All in all, it was a strong album from a band trying to find a niche that is true to their style while still putting bread on their table. Here's my humble opinion on each song (rating based on other songs in album):

-Any Moment Now (3/5)-Strong opening, catchy riff. Doesn't scream "hit" to me though. I don't know why...
-Pieces Fit (4/5)-Good ol' grit and guitars. Recommended for fans of GOBS who don't think today's F11 has balls.
-Whatever Doesn't Kill Me (5/5)-How you say, epic. Beautiful. As majestic as you can be with electric guitars and fast beat. Here's the formula: Snow Patrol - keyboards + whiskey.
-Living In A Dream (4/5)-"Paralyzer" Part 2. It's not paralyzer, and it knows it, but it can strive to be like its big brother. How, you ask?
