It doesn't take a genius to hear why Steve Taylor took only a few moments to sign Chevelle, after hearing them at an early gig by the Squint artist The Insyderz. Chevelle play a unique brand of rock music that offers a true alternative to the mainstream. Steve Albini (Bush/Page & Plant) has been drafted in to not only record Chevelle's debut album, but also to produce and mi it. 'Point no.1' has a commendable raw yet disciplined live feel throughout, adding a compelling element to Chevelle's already intriguingly dynamic brand of hard edged music; where simple tunes are exceptionally well executed in a professional and competent manner. Though sonically dark and rather sombre in places 'Point no.1' is far from being void of hope. Chevelle present gospel truths intelligently, expressing them in such a way as to capture and engage the listener's imagination; resulting in a fine set of thought provoking compositions not to be missed.
