I gave it a 9. It's really great, except for the last song.

I love this CD.
I gave it a 10.
I like every song on it, although the last one isn't as good as the others... still it's ok if you listen to it through..

My top two favorites are (in no order): The Red & Dont Fake this. I also love Comfortable Liar and Closure.

Talking

I was so impressed with this whole CD. Chevelle is a really gnarly band, all of the songs on this album are all awesome and the lyrics even more powerful. When you know a band is good..is when you can relate to the lyrics and I have with Chevelle. So keep up the good work boys! Come to Oregon to all of Medford can see you guys play!

5 reviews for this album and zero for point number one, FOR SHAME!!!!


I miss the Steve Albini production of Point #1. That record really felt different. The songs and music weren't that different from this album, but the production makes all the difference. Point #1 sounded unique. It sounded very raw and heartfelt. This record sounds like every other band out there. Point #1 screwed with you a bit. The quiets were real quiet and the louds were real loud. The new record keeps a constant volume like every other radio band out there. The idea of dynamics is kind of lost when the distortion is the same volume as the quiet. Dont' get me wrong. For a radio rock/metal/whatever record this is pretty good. I just miss the good ole days.

Thumbs down Sorry about this

I really want to like this band. They just don't grab me though. I tried. They just sound too much like lots of other bands.

They're OK, I suppose. Not bad. A lot of their songs sound the same, though. I like The Red and Comfortable Liar, but it's not very original.

lyrics even more powerful.
I fail to see how they are powerful? Most of them(songs) are a meaningless mess... they remind me of Project 86 in that sense.

Granted I really like the cd.. very good... and yes it sounds similar to other bands. .but its still very unique sounding. Kinda like a dark person who thinks all white people look the same.. or vice verson a white person who thinks all dark people look the same.. once you start hanging around them though.. you can see the diff.. Just like Chevelle.. if you listen to a lot of heavy stuff you can hear how unique they are in comparison to other stuff.

I think Chevelle rocks. I heard on MTV that Chevelle didn't like the way this cd was being produced. O well. They still rock. I think their lyrics have deep meaning to to the lead singer Pete. You have to search. I think their lyrics make you think, just like Project 86. Anywayz I think they rock! Great cd

How can you say this sounds like every other band out there? Let me tell you sonny, it doesn't. This CD is really good, very professional sounding. I like point number one for the fact that some of it sounds like it was recorded in a garage or something, and I like this because it's just so loud, and there. And if you've seen them play live, you know that they play everything ten times harder live.

For those of you saying that this is like another linkin park band, or whatever, I say this to you: Get a life. Listen, really listen. Listen to the intricacies of everything.

This is one CD I can listen to over and over, and still NEVER get tired of it.

10/10

Just a question, could you guys tell me what "evening with el Diablo" is about?

Chevelle caught may attention on a sample cd I received from a Miss Angie-Bleach concert.
They really have come far.
As a drummer, I find the drummer's licks,"Sam's" similar to mine.
I have tried to get the last two bands I have been in to cover some of these tunes.
To my dismay they refuse.
Its a pride thing, you see these groups are all about doing own music.
But sooner or later I will find the right mix of musicians that will consider the audience needs over their "inflated EGOS".
Thanks..Chris
