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
6.

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.

As a longtime fan, every album has grabbed me from the beginning (with the exception of Vena Sera, which eventually grew on me). HOTTB reigns as their best since "This type...". It seems a return to form and a great combo of their stronger work. Almost like a re-energizing. On first listen, I was immediately hooked. I keep listening to it, move away to other music, and then find myself craving another listen. Longtime fans will be highly pleased. If you have never listened to a Chevelle album, WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN? For the newly curious, this album is great place to start. For those fans who have felt the slightest disappointment in their recent work, a new spark ignites. Hats Off to Chevelle. Thanx for making amends!!!!

I really really like Chevelle! I've purchased every single one of their CDs because they are THAT GOOD! But this CD is just OKAY. I only like about 3 songs from this album, and I played it at-least 40 times trying to force myself to like it. It's just not happening for me this time, and that is very RARE for Chevelle not to completely WOW me.

Chevelle usually has only ONE "iffy" song on their albums. But this album had about 7 "iffy" songs, so I dunno. I still like them, so its cool. I really like the CD cover with the bull.
