    One of my favorite bands would have to be Finger Eleven, i think any hardcore fan of LP like me would really like them. They're a canadian hard rock band signed to Sony's "Wind-Up" label and they're truly talented.

    The lyrics are deep, the guitars are heavy and the drumming is fast and furious. They're backing up Ozzy Osbourne on his Canadian tour this summer, as a supporting act. They've made numerous appearances on big rock festivals (edgefest/ozzfest) and they were recently on the soundtrack for Daredevil with a new song called Sad Exchange.

    I strongly advise any heavy rock fans to download their albums "The Greyest of Blue Skies" and "Tip". They just posted a 1:50 clip of their new song, "Good Times", off their self titled album coming out in summer.

    TGOBS by far. I love the heavyness and depth of each and every song. Tip is good, mind you, but I love The Greyest of Blue Skies.

    any idea where i can find the 7 new songs on Kazaa? and their names?Panic Attack....i can't remember anything else.

    which is your favorite?

    Sorry, I haven't heard anything about the new album.

    I only have TGOBS and I don't recall hearing anything from Tip.

    As for songs, my favorites would be "First Time", "Drag You Down", "Sick Of It All", and "Broken Words."

    I checked out some music stores for any of their albums, but couldn't find anything, so I downloaded "The Greyest of Blue Skies" (Album) and it's awesome. Class music.

    Lol, here's somthing I wrote a while back

    "All I want from you my dear friend, I've already got - Finger Eleven

    ~For The Ocean~
    Without it I'm failing
    My heart waits in the wings alone
    The stages I go through
    Keep coming time and time and time again
    Do you wonder how I stay
    So complacent
    It's like waiting for the ocean
    To save you from the waves
    When you're so far under
    Silent
    Never moving
    You've taken your timing
    So flawless executing me
    So fearless and hopeful
    Can you imagine such a scene?

    It's like waiting for the ocean
    To save you from the waves
    When you're so far under
    Silent
    Nevermind
    Waiting for the needle
    to take away the pain
    Until finally we numb our every border.

    This is a beautiful song by Finger Eleven. When I look back on this year, I've been through alot of difficult times. There have been moments where I was crying so hard that I could almost feel my heart grow cold. I would curl up in a blanket shivering, not from any weather change but from my own intense emotions. For my emotional moments I needed intensly emotional music to get me through. That's where the band Finger Eleven comes in. I swear to God, I have never heard more perfectly amazing music in my life. "Stay and Drown" is so emotional, it's haunting. Being one of their softer songs, it is about a feeling of hoplessness without that certain someone.
    Many of their songs are about overcoming seemingly impossible odds. The lead singers voice is amazing. He goes from a soft, pretty voice to a tortured, wandering scream. "Broken Words" is another intense song about losing someone you love.

    "She's the one who saw my words,
    broken, torn at the seems.
    ..and broken words are all she had,
    Now she's walking away from me"

    The entire album "Greyest of Blue Skies" is perfect. This has, since I first heard it almost two years ago, become one of my favorite albums of all time. The only song that doesn't spark strength and emotion inside me is a track entitled "Drag You Down". And this isn't a bad thing. Drag You Down is an in your face song, with a feeling a rage and....ok so there is a little emotion to it. Other amazing songs include "Suffocate" "Famous" "Walking In My Shoes" and well, everything.

    Their old stuff is good too. Songs off of the first album "Tip" such as "Temporary Arms" "Swallowtail" "Above" "Awake and Dreaming" and especially the hauntingly mellow "Thin Spirits" are worth checking out.

    But it's their second album "Greyest of Blue Skies" that truly captured my heart. Finger Eleven is almost my favorite band (The Offspring since age 8). Their melodic, soulful rock is unparelleled in the music industry. Enchanting, beautiful but with a sharp edge.

    If you like music at ALL, check them out. They aren't very big. Although they've had a few singles up in Canada, they have yet to reach anyone here. But god...I love this band so much.

    Sorry, I feel like a ####### infomercial, but I'm sitting here listening to this album, feeling chills all over. I just really wanted to rave about them."
