It amazes me how Chevelle manage to maintain such a consistent output. They never sound boring, always tweaking the overall sound in small amounts, so that you’ll be constantly surprised. Dig it!

The North Corridor is expertly executed, rocking hard and satisfying that aggressive urge with dramatic, melodic sonic attacks.

This album really shows a lot of the fatigue the band members feel after putting out albums with such short breaks. While the ten track catalog is impressive in many tracks, there are tunes in here that feel very stale and are meant just to fill space. It's no surprise Chevelle took a massive break after this album.

Chevelle deliver a sound here that seems to be missing in rock now-a-days: Tool. They sound almost exactly like Tool here. Like, shockingly like Tool. And I don't mind Tool, in fact I quite like Tool. And Tool is a band that I (among others) would love to hear from again. But for now, Chevelle are quite the stand-in.

Chevelle has done it again with there latest release "The North Corridor" Those heavy guitar sounds and hard hitting drums that only those two brothers Loeffler's can do. I'd have to say this album is one of top favorites since 2004's This Type of Thinking (Could Do Us In). The North Corridor is expertly executed, rocking hard and satisfying that aggressive urge with dramatic, melodic sonic attacks.

Chevelle has a formula, and it's a formula that often at times works very well. The Chicago alt-metal trio takes grungy, distorted riffs adds schitzophrenic vocals on top it and as a layered, but vague message about different shades of frustration. There's nothing wrong with a few tracks from here and there that can talk about some worthwhile topics; however, at the end of the day, this is an album that achingly reveals the limitations to Chevelle's sound.
