Finger Eleven, Them vs. You vs. Me

Finger Eleven return to the spotlight after a four-year hiatus and while other bands would crumble from such an extensive break, Finger Eleven have always manage to adapt to popular rock trends – and that's really a testament to the band's massive success with the radio-rock format. Still, that's not necessarily always a good thing as their fourth release Them vs. You vs. Me demonstrates. First single and opening track "Paralyzer" is as good as it gets here, and is clearly made for the iPod generation. It's a quick, dance-rock track and a complete sonic departure for the band, but that will also surely become a FM radio staple for 2007. "I'll Keep Your Memory Vague" is another standout, as its acoustic sentiment recalls their massive hit "One Thing" from their previous self-titled release. Other than those two tracks, Them vs. You vs. Me is standard rock that's not inherently bad, but on a whole it's completely forgettable. (Wind-Up Records)
