Editorial Reviews

Canadian rockers Finger Eleven are set to release their seventh studio album, and first in five years. The writing took place over a two and a half year period that saw the band experimenting with a variety of musical styles. Once the songs were ready the Juno-Award winning band headed south to Nashville to work with producer Dave Cobb (Rival Sons, Sturgill Simpson). Immediate, urgent and unfiltered, Five Crooked Lines expresses the exultant spirit of rock and roll.

Finger Eleven is back with their first album in five years, Five Crooked Lines. The album sounds fresh [for the most part], and feels as though Finger Eleven has rediscovered something in themselves. For those that may have given up on the band, you might want to give them another chance.

Admittedly, I was pretty skeptical about this album. After the garbage that they released on Life Turns Electric and not being too impressed with my first couple times hearing the lead single, I didn’t have very high expectations for Five Crooked Lines.

To tell you the truth, I’m not really sure what I am expecting from Finger Eleven these days. They’ve proven that they can produce great music whether it is heavy or light, fast or slow. I guess the main things that I look for are for their songs to sound unique and good. Despite gaining popularity and being lumped in with the late 90’s/early 2000’s nü-metal scene, there was always something in Finger Eleven’s music that set them apart from their peers in that scene. Finger Eleven’s music was always a little more complex and thought-provoking than many of the other bands out there with similar sounds. They also managed to alter their sound on every album so that each album sounded unique and different from the last. They would always come close enough to a mainstream sound to garner some hits, but be far enough away to still sound different. I thought they lost this on Life Turns Electric, which to me sounded like a phoned in attempt at radio friendly hits. What I wanted from Finger Eleven was a return to form – not necessarily in the heaviness that they displayed on their early albums, but in the uniqueness that they had in all of their previous albums.

That said, Five Crooked Lines, for the most part, delivers.

Finger Eleven remains an ever-evolving band, continuing to take every album as a chance to change their sound. As they have evolved their music has generally grown more mainstream rock away from their hard rock roots. It happens. But now we are faced with Five Crooked Lines, a possible reversal of the trend since Greyest of Blue Skies. Now personally I love most of their music. I loved Greyest of Blue Skies, their self titled F11, and even most of the radio friendly Life Turns Electric. That kind of range is easily found here.

While the album is a good mix of styles, they ramp up the distortion and crank out the tunes with the usual kind of edge that F11 is known for. The lead off single is catchy and easily the best song on the album. Personally, though, the sound of distortion throughout made the album feel like a one-note idea spread out over a whole album. Each song kind of has that same vibrating sound that becomes grating and annoying by track 5-6. Thankfully the sound has somewhat returned to a harder sound of 10 years ago F11 that we all loved.

Had to give the album a couple listens before I decided to post a review. With every album release since the early days of Tip, Finger Eleven has been evolving their sound. With the recent releases they strayed a little too far away from what most fans expected, but with this album they showed signs of returning to their amazing sound. I think the new drummer has really helped to bring back that edge you expect to hear. The big standouts are Gods of Speed, Criminal, Save Your Breath, Come on Oblivion (probably my favorite), and Five Crooked Lines. I'm still on the fence with the single Wolves and Doors, it depends on the day. So back to the close but no cigar part of the album which are songs 8-12, they really feel like leftovers from the Them vs. You vs. Me and Life Turns Electric albums. It just feels like these songs don't fit with the first half of the album and it's not that they are bad songs but it's hard to listen to the album from start to finish because of the immediate change in tone. It's this energetic build up that struggles to keep the fire lit from track 8 onward.

Give it a listen, but do yourself a favor and go back and listen to the early albums for what puts me in line at their shows and keeps me pre-ordering new albums.

This album is a welcome slight reversion to the sound that made me love Finger Eleven. While the lead Single Wolves and Doors is quite similar to Paralyzer in musical styling, it grooves a bit better to me and has more to offer lyrics wise. A few okay songs (Sensory Eraser, Criminal, Blackout Song) bridge the gap between the real pieces that made me buy this album. Gods of Speed and Lost for Words give little flashes of older Finger Eleven and Gods of Speed almost have an Immigrant Song feel to it. Come On, Oblivion is a fantastic song (and makes me sad that it's getting less attention than the single track seeing as Come On, Oblivion blows it out of the water). The end song (which is one of the things I've missed most about Finger 11 since Tip and Greyest of Blue Skies) comes back into form with A New Forever. A solid song with a great fade out vibe. The gem of the album to me, though, is Save Your Breath. While a tinge of their past couple albums exists structure wise, this song entirely brings me back to when I was 17 and picked up Tip. This is especially present during the first breakdown with the dual octave low/high vocals and mellowed out song tone. This was everything I've been looking for from Finger Eleven since it was clear they were departing from their highly underrated sound of Tip and GOBS. If anything, give Save Your Breath, Come On, Oblivion, and A New Forever a go. Hopefully it brings you back to them a bit like it did me.
