Them vs. You vs. Me (2007)

EW's GRADE
C

Details Release Date: Mar 06, 2007; Lead Performance: Finger Eleven; Genre: Rock

Together for a dozen years, Finger Eleven finally landed a U.S. pop hit (''One Thing'') with their last CD, which may explain why they're now further damping down their former Disturbed-style hard rock. The identity crisis is most evident in their first single on Them vs. You vs. Me, ''Paralyzer,'' which blatantly cops from as unlikely a source as Franz Ferdinand's ''Take Me Out.'' Mostly, though, their newfound malleability results in cravenly radio-baiting ballads like ''I'll Keep Your Memory Vague'' — a title that may also describe listeners' reaction to this forgettable fare.
