A quick glance at the fifth Epic album by Chicago-based rock trio Chevelle may give their legions of longtime fans pause. Sci-Fi Crimes song titles like “Roswell” and “Highlands Apparition” have the same guys who delivered 2004’s dynamically crunchy This Type of Thinking (Could Do Us In) and the melodic heaviosity of 2007’s Vena Sera gone conspiracy-theory ...

Editorial Reviews

Chevelle’s haunting, booming, and vitriolic sophomore release opens with a song about three brothers called "Family System" Given that the three Loeffler brothers comprise Chevelle, it's easy to imagine the source of the song. Singer/guitarist Pete, drummer Sam, and bassist Joe have an intuitive gift for melding melody and intense, brutal passion in a manner that recalls at various times Live, Taproot, and Tool. From the brutal plea of the dynamic "Forfeit" to the bombast of "An Evening with El Diablo," Chevelle’s earnest, less then groundbreaking modern rock captures an intensity that almost makes up for a sometimes cookie-cutter musical vibe. --Katherine Turman

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent November 14, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Some people call them boring, uninspired, and overplayed. Overplayed for The Red and Send the Pain Below might be right, but when you get your hands on this CD and hear the rest of what Chevelle offers, your opinion about them being boring and uninspired will change.
Wonder Whats Next is a great rock CD that offers several different tempos, moods, and concepts. Chevelle can play several create several different atmospheres with just 3 members. The pounding opener Family System showcases an pounding riff that will catch fans of the radio tunes slightly off guard. This happens again in the title track, which is definetely the standout track of the album. It has a variety of grooves that make it a really amazing song.
More or less in a nutshell, don't judge them based on the singles...listen to the whole album and you will see just how talented this band really is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Been there...but never quite like this. July 15, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Wonder What's Next? Hopefully several more albums from this very talented group of guys. While being compared to the likes of Taproot and Live, I believe that Chevelle actually surpasses the music of the two aformentioned rock bands, and does so admirably. Many of the songs on this disk mine emotions that rock fans are used to dealing with: Anger, Distrust, Disappointment, Rage, and Loss. However, Chevelle has somehow found a way to make these subjects sound and feel fresh. Comfortable Liar, a bass-thumping riff-heavy ode to betrayal, gets deep in your gut and lingers there. The Red, a critical look at acceptance and disapproval really makes you think about how you may have treated people in your past, and the consequences you may receive for it. Highly recommended.
Standout tracks:
Family System
Send the Pain Below
The Red
Comfortable Liar
An Evening with El Diablo

5.0 out of 5 stars This Album Is a Masterpiece! January 27, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I first got turned on to Chevelle when i was watching MTV late at night (since that's the ONLY time they ever play rock) The single that got me Was of course "The Red" I was digging the vocals and the Grinding Guitar riffs, Then i was Reeled in at the chorus right when the music pauses and the singer Says "So Lay..." and kicks back in with heavy distortion when The singer says "...Down" The harmonies are simply Astounding on the chorus.Not to mention The ending when he repeats "Seeing Red Again!" in an awesome Scream/growling voice, and trust me, I play the Drums and sing,and i have had to Scream that,afterwards i felt like the lyrics should of been "Turning Red Again" cause i definitely was after singing it. I waited anxiously for their CD to release, and when it did i got it,and Was blown away by the first track "Family System" The whole CD is Incredibly heavy but melodic as well. The lyrics are often easily related to.
Here is a track Break Down:
1-Family System:From the dark,Mysterious Intro to the Final "Scream" this song is a great song with Melodic Vocals,Driving Drum beats and "Kick you in your teeth" Guitar riffs-10/10
2-Comfortable Liar:Moody vocals intertwined with growling,awesome Harmonies as well,A little Repetitive, but darn good-8/10
3-Send The Pain Below:Some more Heavy Grindage,and Driving Drum Beat,Moody Vocals,and Deep Lyrics.-9/10
4-Closure: Wow...Wow is all i can say about this song, a slower song on the album,Dark Lyrics and Rhythm,It doesn't stay slow for long though before The singer Rips out this Monstrosity of a Growl/scream towards the end,not to mention the Shattering Glass Sample you hear when it kicks back in for the ending,which is Laced with a "Sub-Woofer" Slam of bass. by far one of the cooler songs on the disc.

5.0 out of 5 stars WHY DON'T WE HEAR ABOUT THIS ARTIST MORE!!?? December 19, 2002
By Grieche
Format:Audio CD
This CD is really amazing! I play it everyday, have done so for a while, and I still don't get tired of it.
The music sounds really heavy and dark at times, yet vulgarity is nonexistant in this album!
1. Family System - Powerful song! It rocks!
2. Comfortable Liar - Probably my 3rd favorite song on the track! At times I feel as if I can personally identify with what he is saying. lol
3. Send the Pain Below - This is the song that brought me to find this artist-- A+++++++
4. Closure - Good song as well, a little different the the first 3 in that it is a little less hevy, although Snd the Pain below is not terribly heavy like Comfortable Liar is.
5. The Red - Very popular song, I heard it in the past but never paid much attention to it even though it was a great song.
6. Wonder Whats Next - Great song, powerful meaning!
7. Dont Fake This - A favorite of mine!
8. Forfeit - 'Strong' song... another song I can identify with at times.... the part "I want to fight...I want to prove I'm right..." My second favorite of the album!
9. Grab Thy Hand - Heavy rock song, but really killer!
10. An Evening With El Diablo - I have to say that this song is my favorite, I am suprised I haven't heard it more around! I've played this song countless times and it only gets better!
11. One Lonely Visitor - The album's only 'quiet' song... not much of a beat, but good for relaxing you after such a strongly rhythmed album.
Aside from "One Lonely Visitor", each song has that 'head-bob' thing going with it. If you like a strong beat, and gutiar...or if you just like rock...don't hesitate at all to get this CD!!
