This new album with Chevelle will either be ranked as their best effort or their weakest. And why this? With a more straight forward style compared to their previous releases “This Type Of Thinking Could Do Us In (2004)” and “Wonder what’s next (2002)” Chevelle has speeded up their normally slow alt metal tunes a bit. Some might think that they now sounds like any other band now, which is a little true since they’ve lost a little of their unique trademark. But I think its ok, or should say awesome since I think that this is their best album so far with a little cleaner and more varied sound. It feels like they have taken the best from their previous efforts and developed it in a new and very interesting way. But like I said, the more melodic side of the fans will love this like I do, but I think the alternative metal side will have hard time with it.

Chevelle has made their best album with "vena sera". It´s melodic, dynamic, powerfull, great produced, and i realy like those vocal harmonies.
Killer album that will end up on my top list of 2007.
This album is totally awesome...the first time i heard i thot nah not as good as the last, but now man holy hell it is so frikkin amazing...if u loved their other albums believe me u´ll love this one....
Probably the best album yet. I don´t think there is a bad song on it. I could listen to it from start to finish.
About half as good as their first album. Still listenable, but quite a drop in quality from their last two releases. Wonder what´s next is still their best effort by far.
