The first single is especially important with these guys. Some bands can redeem themselves from a weak single but Chevelle is not one of them. They're always so telling of how the album will play out.

I agree they've always taken the best parts of Tool. But with the first five albums you still got the sense that they were slowly trying to dissociate themselves with that and then ever since the sixth album came out, it's like they just said "Fuck it...let's just sound like them again".

Tool are the best band in the world. Chevelle are shitty imitators. I did like Wonder What's Next as a CD album though.

Being up there doesn't make you the best. I like plenty of Tool songs but there's a lot of pretentious bullshit with the band and their fanbase, not to mention some songs that don't appeal to me at all. I'd say they're good, but also overrated.

Honestly if you swapped out the vocals with Chad Kroeger's and made the production a bit more beefy, this could pass for a Nickelback song. I can see huge radio appeal for this song.

Generic doesn't necessarily mean radio. The cowbell is the only part of the song that stands out from any other Chevelle song.

Wow, not really. It would be one of the 'back songs that wouldn't chart. This track is just too slow and deliberate for radio appeal and it distinctly lacks major swells. Sure, it has a hook, but it not particularly hooky.

The singer of Chevelle honestly has a pretty whiny voice though. He's never sounded this whiny before. A lot of bands with whiny male vocalists have been charting quite well (fun. for example), so all of that leads me to believe that this song has massive radio potential.
