Chevelle make their most Chevelle-sounding Chevelle album that's full of Chevelle-sounding
Chevelle songs but lacks the typical Chevelle-sounding Chevelle highlight or two amongst the
rest of the typical Chevelle-sounding Chevelle filler. So Chevelle-loving Chevelle fans need
to wonder why Chevelle even bothered releasing Chevelle-upset Hats off to the Bull
Out of their six albums, Hats Off To The Bull is perhaps the only album I can listen to without skipping or deleting a track. So would that make this their best album? Maybe not to some, but that certainly makes it the one most quality controlled.
Chevelle have released their most mature and most cohesive album yet. Despite one or two tracks that blend together, the album is solid from start to finish. Envy is the best song the band has ever written.
Nothing too important to say - never considered this guys amazing. The whole of this album ends up being pleasent, melodic and solid, sounding as good as they can, but with a poorer light, a slow-death sign: a probable indication that from now on things will get worse.
Surprisingly not as inept as I had initially expected. Chevelle have created a catchy mainstream album, that despite lacking ambition and interesting instrumental parts, rises head and shoulders above its predecessors.
Hats Off to the Bull is an improvement from Sci-Fi Crimes. But in slight tragedy this is Chevelle firing all of their cylinders, and 6 albums in the band is starting to tire them out since they've been riding on the same formula since their debut.
