Chevelle's debut, Point #1, finds them collaborating with producer Steve Albini to create forceful, mercurial indie rock. Dynamic rhythms and melodies predominate on the album, and songs like "Open," "Dos," and "Blank Earth" combine delicate interludes with blasts of noise. In line with Chicago's ambitious music scene, Chevelle's challenging take on rock is also a rewarding one.
