Customer Reviews

Very good song with a catchy chorus.
Chris
All of the songs are worth a listen, if you were a fan of even one of the songs on Wonder What's Next, make sure you pick up this album.
DR ADAM
I've loved Chevelle ever since Wonder What's Next, & this cd reaffirms that.

I bought this CD having not heard one song off of it yet, thinking how much I loved Wonder What's Next and Chevelle, and just thought since its Chevelle it should be worth my money. Well it definitely is. I think its ten times better than Wonder What's Next. They have matured so much in their sound. I noticed on WWN that on some songs it was the main riff that carried them. But on This Type of Thinking, its the riffs, the vocals, the drums, everything that makes every song on here great. So I guess I'll do the ol' rate-song-by-song method here, but to me, that's what is effective to reviews I read...

And I'm not going to rate the songs all close to ten, I'm rating them how they really are.

1. The Clincher - 8/10 - Awesome start to the CD. I was hooked from the first ten seconds. I enjoy the beat of the cymbals with the guitars at the beginning and end.

2. Get Some - 9/10 - This song contains one of the best moments on the album, and that is its bridge. It has the quick riffs of the guitar that Chevelle is known for and the vocals and lyrics sound great.

3. Vitamin R - 8.5/10 - Fortunately I hadn't heard this song before I bought the album so I wasn't tired of it when I first listened to the CD. It is comparable to "The Red" because of the short strums of the guitar during the verses. But when the pre-chorus comes, Pete's high vocals are so beautiful, and the chorus' bursting in sounds very good.

4. Still Running - 8.5/10 - This is the hardest song on the album and has the rock-out ability that "Prove to You" and "Wonder What's Next" had. I would love to watch them play this song live.

5. Breach Birth - 7.5/10 - The only reason I rated it lower is that I'm not real big on the lyrics. "Molds"?

This Type of Thinking(Could Do Us In) is Chevelle's third album coming off of Wonder What's Next, which I found very impressive. With this latest effort, sadly, I don't think Chevelle has outdone itself like I'd had hoped they would. That said, they haven't sunk into mediocrity either. I think Chevelle has lot of talent, and instrumentally speaking, I think This Type of Thinking supersedes Wonder What's Next.

The first track on the album is "The Clincher", which is about...well I'll just let them tell you: "It's about claustrophobia. It's cool to get a song out on the radio that everyone can listen to, but it's about such a dark subject." Some mistook it for a religious song, and it does a good job of tricking those who don't study the lyrics very hard. It's one of the stronger tracks on the album, and gives a great first impression for new listeners.

"Get Some", the followup track, matches "The Clincher" and shows off Chevelle's improved instrumentation. Peter sings his lyrics in a very convincing manner, and I found the singing to screaming ratio was well proportioned on this track. It is absolutely fantastic, and Chevelle at their absolute finest. "Vitamin R(Leading Us Along)" is about Ritalin addiction suffered by a friend of the band who was misdiagnosed with ADHD. It's an excellent track. From here, "Still Running"(a lot of screaming on this one), "Breach Birth", and "Panic Prone", are all great tracks. The only songs I didn't particularly care for were "Tug-O-War", "Bend the Bracket"(excruciating) and "Another Know it All".

Technically speaking, I noted in my review of Wonder What's Next that the sound quality isn't as clear as it should have been. This is fixed on This Type of Thinking.

I've been a fan since I first dicovered Point # 1 sitting on the shelf in a record store. I loved it but knew that the potential to be better was in there somewhere. Than they released "Wonder Whats Next" which was so beautifully melodic and yet it maintained so much of the aggressively heavy sound from the first album. It was a beautiful mixture of both worlds and it worked perfectly. The album is almost perfectly divided into melodic and heavy sections. The lyrics felt really focused and they accurately captured certains feelings and concepts (such as closure and forfeit.) The third time around is unfortunately playing it really safe, its not that I mind so much that they stick to what they are good at, but they seemed to have lost alot of the melodic intensity of the second album. Gone are the melodies in favor of super heavy riffs that blend far too easily into eachother. The lyrics are pairs of words that have no connection to one another, and are very hard to decipher. They have lost the focus they once had. The ballads are very standard and don't really break any new ground. Don't get me wrong, there are some very choice tracks on this record and if you want heavy, you got it. Hopefully they will be more willing to take more risks with their sound, because todays music is far too concerned with sounding heavy and much less concered with actually creating melodies you can sing along too. In order to last in the industry you have to be willing to take creative risks and be willing to change your sound. This way of creating music, really could do you in.

Peter's voice is the one aspect that has improved with every record. Some may say he sounds like a certain singer from a band about wrenches and screw drivers.
