It was pretty evident on their first album, but people fell in love with the music. I liked Illuminadio a lot, but I couldn't listen to much of their Craig-albums.
Yeah... I honestly didn't like them at first but all my friends did and then my friend lent me the deluxe album and I kind of got used to it. I'm sure if he wasn't so overrated it would be different though but I can't stand people who idolize what he does with his voice. It's really no different than a guitarist idolizing someone from a band who literally just plays chugs and breakdowns. There's always a line drawn between a musician and a regular fan at times and being the former you just typically know better.

Quality is to poor to judge vocals and music imo. Glad it sounds heavy. Hopefully the lyrics are similar to Bone Palace Ballet and not D.R.U.G.S.

Can people on this site stop talking about Illuminadio on every Chiodos post? No one likes that album outside of AP. At least no one I have ever met.
I agree. It has a few good tracks but it is easily my least favorite Chidos album... Drop it already guys, Brandon isn't that great.

Did you ever see Brandon play with them live? He was boring as fuck and butchered old Chioods songs.

its a goddamn shame the dude who sang on Illuminaudio didn't work out.
As much as I like Craig and keeping original lineups of bands (makes for less confusion and bandcest), I wholeheartedly agree with this.

...are you being serious? Because he sounds pretty good there, and I've seen Craig Owens butcher Craig Owens songs on multiple occasions.

Completely serious. Did you ever see him live with Chiodos? It was mind numbingly boring compared to Craig's performances. Agreed that Craig's vocals aren't always spot on.

So yes Jack, I'm being serious. There is a reason his stint with the band was short lived.

Illuminaudio fans have to remind everyone in every Chiodos topic that they never liked Craig and they suck now. That's just how it works.

Just like when Illuminaudio was coming out all the Craig fans would just shit on them.

I saw him live 4 times with Chiodos, and he killed it every time. I was highly impressed with him, on both his own songs and Craig songs.

And the reason he was out of Chiodos so fast was lack of success, combined with internal fighting. Chiodos fans made it clear they're more interested in personality than talent. I'll give you that his stage presence wasn't great, but I'll take an amazing vocalist with no presence over a horrible vocalist with great stage presence.

Maybe I expected too much. I was not impressed at all. To the point of not sticking around for their entire set one of the two times I saw him with them.

Agree to disagree on stage presence vs amazing vocalist. We don't come across a lot of "amazing" vocalists in this genre. Bolmer wasn't the exception. And he wasn't heads above Craig even if I agree he is better. I had seen Chiodos so many times with Craig at the helm that the performance was really boring in comparison. Not what I expected at a Chiodos show.
