Great Lyrics, But Rather Bland Overall

"Keep in mind that this is the first Chevelle album that I've ever bothered to purchase. That being said, I found the singles "The Clincher" and "Vitamin R (Leading Us Along" to be quite good lyrically and melodically. Just in case you haven't had access to a radio in the past year, "Vitamin R" is a clever song about Ritalin abuse with some haunting backup vocals that really give this tune a life of us it's own. "The Clincher" is a powerful song in every way about claustrophobia and the fear of being buried alive.
But aside from those radio hit singles, not much else in this album stood out to me. Chevelle writes some great lyrics and can pump out some moody tunes, but I thought that the album became pretty bland about halfway through. After the first three tracks, I honestly couldn't tell one song from another unless I really tried to focus. Peter Chevelle's vocals became much like the drone of one of my professors in a two-hour lecture. Two exceptions were "Tug-O-War" and "Breach Birth", which brought me back into the album for a few minutes.
The DVD portion of this album consists of the album encoded in Dolby Digital 5.1, interviews with the band members, and a remix of "The Clincher" called "(Version 103)". I was disappointed that there were no music videos.

"Not only has this band gotten better with each album, but they were great to begin with. Chevelle is living proof thtat their still exists an audience for traditional rock music. Their is no glitz and glitter, no excessive electronics; just solid rock music. If you like albums like My Own Prison (Creed) and Tip (Finger Eleven) you should consider giving these guys a shot. If you have this album, you may even want to pick up their other 2 ("Point #1" and "Wonder What's Next") as both of these albums have the same great sound. To put it short and sweet, "It's a top 100 album." (This is coming from a guy with over 800 albums.)"
The Extras RULE!!

"Ok, we know that this cd is really extremely well done and deserves the praise for this album sounding so good. What else could make this cd better? Well Chevelle put alot of extra stuff on this cd such as the whole album being preformed in studio and a couple videos one being never before seen make this worth the money for this again. Overall once again its awesome and I know if you like Chevelle you'll like this cd/dvd."
