The debut recording from Finger Eleven, Tip blends alternative grooves with a heavy rock edge. The catchy hooks and reflective lyrics provide a rich and layered presentation, giving songs like "Above" and "Awake and Dreaming" remarkable levels of emotion. By experimenting with timing and tempo in their compositions, Finger Eleven displays a flair for musical detail and craftsmanship, setting them apart from the sonically similar Stone Temple Pilots and fellow Canadians Our Lady Peace. This collection of powerful and deeply felt songs moves through rock soundscapes with impressive results.
