The Smithereens - 11 download album

11 is the third full-length album by The Smithereens, released on October 18, 1989 (see 1989 in music). It includes the Billboard Top 40 single "A Girl Like You". The album was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America in June 1990. The album title was inspired by the film Ocean's 11, "with a little push from Spinal Tap's famous line, "This one goes to 11", according to guitarist Jim Babjak.

A delicate balancing act is what The Smithereens do, not just on this album 11, but in general with all of their albums. The Smithereens have the genuine ability to rock out to the maximum and they do, but there is a certain amount of reserve and restraint that they bring to their music, a holding back, a sophistication if you will for the music, because they are not just guitar players in a band, they are all first rate musicians from beginning to end.

Infobox Album Name 11 Type Album Artist The Smithereens. 11" is the third official album by the Smithereens. The Smithereens switched producers for the album, going from Don Dixon, who had produced their first two albums, to Ed Stasium, who had produced albums by The Ramones and Living Colour. I’m not sure what we were looking fo. aybe a heavier guitar sound, like in "A Girl Like You"

While their previous sets boasted strong material from front to back, 11 is dotted with filler. And while "A Girl Like You," "Blue Period," and "William Wilson" are all great songs, many of the others sound like by-the-numbers pop tunes cranked out to pad the set to full length. Producer Don Dixon made the most of the dark and mysterious undercurrents of Pat DiNizio's songs and Jim Babjak's guitar, but Ed Stasium gives the band a solid, professional sound that is sadly lacking in personality; there's nothing wrong with the way the album sounds, but.
