It's hard to put into words the emotions you feel when listening to a Chevelle album. My immediate thoughts are along the lines of WOW...this exactly what I would write/create if I was as talented as this trio. Its like they know what I want to hear. Lyrically brilliant, evolving guitar lines and the band overall doesn't rest on past "clones" as many reviewers seem to be reaching for. The thing that you can count on every 2 years is that Chevelle will release an epic album, and that it won't be the same as the last, which for me is why they are on top of their game at this point in their career.

Honestly, Chevelle isn't straying far from the successful formula in which they made their name (you can still workout or drive excessively fast to these songs w/ the except of maybe Prima Donnas which is the ballad on this cd) but for me...they upped the anti overall with this album with their creativity and mature sound. To me, Peter shines the most. His vocal ability has come a very long-way from Point#1 and even WWN ... Sci-Fi Crimes was explosive and fast, you knew what you were going to get from the moment Sleep Apnea started. Where that album
was powerful and head-spinning, Hats off is creative, dark and lyrically sarcastic. I'm not going to talk about every song, because the beauty of each is the in the ear of the beholder. Upon first listen I thought "THE MEDDLER" was surely going to be the best track ....which btw might be Peter's best work yet....AND THEN a few minutes later "ENVY" played (my favorite Track on the album) This song was simply brillant, very dark, sexy and hostile. It had perfect balance...LOVED IT ...

With Chevelle, you'll instantly have to accept a great singing voice that can go gritty and heavy or soft and melodic. If you can handle that with your musical preferences:

Chevelle has an incredible talent for creating very melodic songs that are almost always a pleasure to listen to, whether the song is hard and heavy with grinding riffs like tracks 1. Face to the Floor, (5/5), 7. Hats off to the Bull and track (5/5)11. Clones (5/5) with their aggressive, crushing guitar riffs and soaring vocals with just enough grit in the voice. At the same time, they tap into a softer tone, relying on solid, pleasant melodies to ease back with to really take in the lyrics, on songs like 6. Envy (4/5), 8. Arise (4/5), or 9. Revenge 4/5), which require the listener to have an open mind and relax. Bottomline, the Loeffler's have amazing vocals reminiscent of Tool and Remy Zero IMO.

If you value these traits Chevelle is well known for, then there is little to be disappointed with here, unless you closed your mind off with certain pre-expectations when you first listened to this album.

Keep in mind, if a track doesn't appeal to you right away, ask yourself if you find a quality in it that you DO like. Those are the tracks that tend to grow on you over time. Track 2 and 3 are good examples for me. They sound better with each listen. And that's why I changed my initial 4/5 stars for the album to a 5/5. If you're a CHEVELLE fan, do not miss this excellent, high quality album. Chevelle consistently delivers the goods.

Tracks: All my 2nd listen opinions on the ratings:
1. Face to the Floor 5/5 Heavier
2. Same Old Trip 4/5 Heavier
3. Ruse 4/5 Heavier
4. Meddler 5/5 Melodic focus and some Heaviness
5. Pinata 4/5 Heavy Melodic

Pre-ordered this album, and it arrived today. I have been listening to it front to back, I have yet to hear a mediocre track. These guys always put forth solid albums, and as usual this does not disappoint! Vena Sera was my favorite, but I think it might have just been replaced. This album as one reviewer said, is very melodic, but still hard rocking. Track 6, Envy, sounds kind of Tool inspired. 5 stars from me.

I am a longtime Chevelle fan. I have watched them grow from a premature band (Point #1) into a mainstream success (Wonder What's Next. I strapped myself in for the explosive album, This Type of Thinking Could Do Us In. When Vena Sera came out I was disappointed, but after several listens I accepted and loved the evolution of the Chicago-based trio. These guys completely redeemed themselves and then some with the utterly amazing Sci-Fi Crimes (my personal favorite, with This Type of Thinking in an extremely close 2nd). I have witnessed the energy that is Chevelle live and came out dripping sweat and radiating joy. That being said it is easy to see why I counted the days until the release of Hats Off. After several listens I find this to be an album I just can't get into. Like Vena Sera, when I first heard it, nothing really stands out as an instant classic. Okay, Face to the Floor is a decent rock song, for a single. And there are a couple stand out tracks for the audiophile in me (Arise, Clones). Yes, the music is great technically, and the lyrics brilliant as always. However, there is something missing... A spark perhaps. Something to grab you by the shirt and pound you in the face. Remember the opening bars to The Clincher, you knew immediately that album was gonna knock your socks off. Or how Family System started off melodic then *Wham* gut punch of crunching guitars and gooseflesh from what the first few seconds of WWN did to your brain. I know they are capable of so much more and while technically this album is good I feel overall it lacks the same passion of earlier albums. I still bought the album of course! But if you're a new Chevelle fan or plan on introducing someone to this amazing trio, I would suggest starting with WWN or This Type of Thinking. And that folks, is my two cents.

Hats Off To The Bull Expectations??? ( New Chevelle Album)
Creativity and being unique compared to the majority of general rock bands today. Joe Barresi did a killer job with album. It's going to be great. Sci Fi crimes, was a bit bland compared to what this album will sound like.

Chevelle is incredible live
Eh, I just saw them on Saturday at Buzzfest in Houston and they were off a bit. The pacing of the harder/faster songs were slowed down and Pete didn't get all of his screams in. I am still a huge Chevelle fan but I think they would benefit from adding a touring guitarist and having Pete... Read More
