Chevelle - The Red

Here is a band that has been successfully releasing music for around sixteen years now: Chevelle. Yet, despite the band's age, many would still say they are in the game -- though, not quite hitting as hard as they used to. Their last two albums, while reaching a wide fanbase, did not make waves in the music world like their previous work had.

Speaking of their previous work, I think now is a good time to butt in with today's featured song, The Red. This song was a breakthrough single on their album Wonder What's Next, the album of which was certified Platinum by the RIAA. The Red is an excellent example of Chevelle's potential, as evidenced in the music video below:

Having heard their other songs, though, I would have to say I do not really enjoy them as much as I have enjoyed The Red. The songs are not necessarily bad, but they lack the pop that The Red had, in my opinion; they simply did not intrigue and envelope me in the same way. Sadly, most successful songs come from one-hit wonders, and I am of the opinion that Chevelle is indeed a one-hit wonder.
Check 'em out, nonetheless, and tell us what you think!
