It is a good album but I don't think anyone has realized that it's here.

Another Good Album by Chevelle

But with the addition of three studio covers, two of which were released on the Japanease import of the cd, this album is even better! "(High) Visibility" is a Helmet cover that ends up being one of the coolest songs on the album. Same thing with "It's No Good", only this song is a Depesch Mode cover. And finally, "Black Boys On Mopeds" was originally written by Sinnead O' Connor and Chevelle's singer did an amazing job of covering a female's voice.
Now, for the original tracks. The covers weren't the only tracks they added to this album. "Until You're Reformed" from The Punisher soundtrack is also here, which is actually one of Chevelle's most clever songs to date. The singles "The Red" and "Send the Pain Below" are ideal starters, but here are the standouts in my opinion: "Family System", "Comfortable Liar", "Closure", "Until You're Reformed", and "An Evening With el Diablo". Oh, and "Grab Thy Hand" is an excellant song to rock out to.

About Chevelle

Inspired by the lurching riffs of Helmet and the soft-loud vocal dynamics of Tool, Chicago-based trio Chevelle formed in 1995 with an aggressive, heavy sound. Comprising brothers Sam (drums), Pete (vocals, guitar), and Joe Loeffler (bass), the band began playing parties and outdoor events, which quickly led to bookings at Chicago clubs when youngest member Joe was just 14 years old. In 1999, Chevelle released their Steve Albini-produced debut album, Point #1, on Squint Entertainment. Three years later -- and following tours with bands like Filter, Sevendust, Powerman 5000, and Machine Head -- the band had inked a deal with Epic and issued Wonder What's Next, released in August 2002. The album went platinum by the following summer, propelled in part by its second single, "Send the Pain Below," which became a number one hit on modern rock and mainstream radio. Main stage dates with the annual Ozzfest tour followed that summer, and 2003 brought a concert album, Live from the Road.

Chevelle returned in the fall of 2004 with their third full-length effort, This Type of Thinking (Could Do Us In), and with it came another hit song, "Vitamin R (Leading Us Along)." Joe parted ways with his brothers in July 2005, and though he was replaced on bass a month later by Dean Bernardini, Chevelle remained a family affair, since Bernardini was the siblings' brother-in-law. With the new member came a newfound energy and optimism that replaced the internal bickering of the past, and the guys carried that spirit into the recording of their next two albums, 2007's Vena Sera and 2009's Sci-Fi Crimes. The following year, the band celebrated its ten-year anniversary in the music business with a pair of live shows in Chicago, later released on the DVD Any Last Words.

In 2011, Chevelle announced that they were taking a break from touring to head into the studio, eventually releasing their sixth album, Hats Off to the Bull, in the winter of that year. Following the touring cycle for that album, they went back into the studio with Joe Barresi (Kyuss, Tool, Queens of the Stone Age), utilizing the producer's vast collection of percussion instruments to subtly reinvent their sound once again. Arriving in early 2014, their next release was the groovy, aggressive single "Take Out the Gunman," from their seventh album, La Gárgola, which followed in April of that year. Two years later, the band released its eighth album, North Corridor. The heavier direction -- once again produced by Joe Barresi -- was showcased by lead single "Joyride (Omens)." ~ Tracy Frey
