5.0 out of 5 stars Check in, check it out! 28 Oct 2005
Format:Audio CD
This album is a sparkly masterpiece of twee pop, set to a backdrop of growly guitars and electronica. The chalets have produced an album of immediate appeal, with punchy melodies and some fantastic hooks. The saccharine sweet combination of male and female vocal invites obvious comparisons with the magic numbers or even belle & sebastien, but with a more upbeat, electro sound. Overall a very impressive debut.

5.0 out of 5 stars We got some fancy guitars 15 Nov 2005
Format:Audio CD
Why do art schools get all the best bands? The Chalet's album 'Check In' comes on like a sugar rush leaving the listener desperate for another hit once the album finishes. Twee meets blissful electronic noises meets fantastic pop music is what you can expect to hear from this fantastic little five piece.
Girl Boy responsive vocals makes the Chalets stand out from the crowd with their kitsch each of their blissful little pop creations you feel as though you're listening in to a conversation. Every song on the album could very easily be a single with the tempo and tone of songs varying throughout, it's hard to find something to not like about this album, in fact it's pretty impossible. From the opening lines of the impossibly catchy single 'Feel The Machine' to the poigniantly atmospheric sound of 'Fight You Kids', from the sound of summer 'No Style' to the darkness 'Love Punch', this debut album is a cut above the rest.

4.0 out of 5 stars Foot Tapping Fun! 22 May 2006
Format:Audio CD
What a great pop album. There's so little acceptable pop music around these days it's nice to hear uplifting guitar pop with a twist of electronica. The back to back male and female vocals really hit the spot especially on 'Checkout' and 'Gogo Don't Go.' This album should not be played in your car however as the constant head bobbing may cause accidents! Get Involved all!

5.0 out of 5 stars Record of the year any year 3 Feb 2006
By Lovblad - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
How come no one has selected this pearl as the record of the year? I do not understand it. This is simply one of the msot refreshing records I have heard in a while. They capture more the new wave spirit than any of the current more known bands. It is performed with great enthusiasm. I Love this record.

5.0 out of 5 stars you might never want to check out. 11 Jun 2006
By Isaac Laughlin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
From the first driving power chord anthem "Theme From Chalets" The Chalets establish that they mean business. From there it's pretty much pedal to the metal all the way. While they occassionally rock very hard, there's no doubt that this is a pop album, and that the whole experience is all about fun. Any track could arguably be a single, although "No Style" and "Two Chord Song" are the most immediately infectious. These are the kind of songs you will find yourself drawn back to on really great days. I don't own a convertible, but if I did I would listen to this album with the top down when it was 75 and sunny.

Musically, the highlight is the vocals; it seems like all 5 members of the bands are capable of competently contributing vocals and/or harmony as needed. This focus on vocal harmony in conjunction with driving pop rock and occassionally quirky arrangements that just manage to avoid irony, gives The Chalets a unique sound that deserves to be heard not just in the US (as some previous commenters have suggested) but the world over.
4.0 out of 5 stars Feel-Good Pop Gem 3 Jun 2013
By James Dawson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Full of upbeat pop songs with great vocals, this is one of those rare albums that actually makes you feel better about life in general as you're listening to it. Can't believe this group didn't receive more acclaim, because this CD is terrific.

I quickly released the album itself isn't as catchy as I thought it would be. -ha- That's okay, though; it was inexpensive. 8^)
