I really liked Illuminaudio. I don't understand the hate for the album. At some point I think people heard a new voice and went "Not Craig so its not Chiodos". Why are people so taken by one member of a band? There are other people in the band ya know? The album was well written, well orchestrated, and well produced. Its a great album and after the band treated the drummer and singer like a one night stand where they stopped talking to them until they finally had to leave because of the BS. Its a shame, really. Its like a bunch of kids. I like Craig and all, don't get me wrong but the fanboy atmosphere really does make going to these shows and saying "I'm a fan of Chiodos" really hard to do.
Because people are dipshits and are incapable of giving anything new a chance.
Like, if you gave it a chance and you simply don't enjoy it, that's perfectly understandable. But the whole "i'm never going to listen to <band> because <singer> is not the singer anymore" or "it's not <band> without <singer>" attitude is seriously childish.
