We gave it a C

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.
