Dovetail Joint released their one and only album 001 in 1999 with radio-ready singles but failed to make a dent, we try to figure out why

This week we’re revisiting the 1999 album 001 by Dovetail Joint. With radio-friendly singles and sharp songwriting, Dovetail Joint were a Chicago band that could have had Smashing Pumpkins or Veruca Salt level success a few years earlier in the decade, but the shifting radio and label landscape worked against them as guitar-centric rock bands took a back seat to third-generation grunge knock-offs, mall-punk and manufactured pop. We dissect the album track-by-track to figure out what makes (spolier alert) 001 a worthy album.
