weird how much sput loves this band, i mean they have a pretty mainstream (albeit good) sound, not that i dislike them, at all, it just seems a bit odd.

They have a pretty winning formula and for some reason know how to play it just tweaked enough each
time that it doesn't get old. They can also play heavy and soft music equally as well (despite 90% of
the songs being heavy, when they go soft it can also be epic). This was the first time in pretty much
forever though where one could listen to the album and think "they might be losing ideas".

Sorry if I offend people but this honestly sounds like slightly better Nickelback to me.

Dude just play the first song on this then play anything from Nickelback. This is still better but I get a Nickelback vibe from it.

Nah sorry. Not a huge fan of Chevelle's last few albums but they're definitely not Nickelback

Yeah there are. The guitar tone, many of the riffs, structure. Vocals are different but could be compared. From what I listened to in high school Three Days Grace might be a better band to compare to though.

This is kind of a cool flow to it, but it is the structure that gets me. I've just heard enough of the same basic radio verse/chorus repeat. I want to hear the new album but it's not on Spotify.

The basic structure with no deviations and similar length per section that has been used forever in hard rock and never changes.

You mean it's been done forever in everything?

And does anyone else think the guitar tone on this album and on the new album is a step down from old
Chevelle albums?

Oh so I have to listen to all of their music and review it before I can state a first impression without getting the overused "lol your 5s" card pulled on me? You are an idiot.
