Chevelle - This Type of Thinking (Could Do Us In) (Epic Records) - Back
Not many albums these days have more than a few decent songs and one or 2 really good ones. Chevelle has created an album that every song is at least decent, with a handful of good tracks. “The Clincher,” “Vitamin R (Leading Us Along),” “Another Know It All,” and “Emotional Drought” shows what the band is up to these days. “This Type of Thinking (Could Do Us In)” even has a few more songs that I’m sure are among fan’s favorites. There is no use to list them; I probably would end up with just about the whole track list on the back of the disc. This album picks up where the last album left off, with a few changes mostly for the better. Musically the band as a whole has a more professional sound and has become more creative. The songs seem to change pace, loudness, and heaviness from track to track. It might not be quite as heavy as their last album, but there are many riffs you can get into. That’s probably why I like every song. The CD ends with an all-acoustic track that kind of reminds me of Stained “Outside,” but I like this track much better. “Bend The Bracket” has much more feeling without a whiney tone. If you were wondering what was next after the last album you will be quite please when you find out that this album continues on with Chevelle’s previous success. You will also receive an assurance from their composition that there is much more great music ahead!
