Chiodos' new album, Devil, is streaming on YouTube. What do you think of Craig Owens' highly-anticipated return to the band?

Really enjoy this album, sounds like a continuation of BPB and is super fun and high energy. Glad Craig came back, unquestionably better than DRUGS and Illuminaudio

It's hit and miss for me - I'd say about half of the songs sound exactly like what I wanted from this band. The other half are either lackluster or sound like they don't belong.

A lot of the better songs on this album feel a lot more like a continuation from All's Well That Ends Well - a lot more raw and less polished, which is a good thing.

I dunno, I guess all things considered it's pretty good. Better than D.R.U.G.S, not quite as good as AWTEW or BPB.

I'm in love with 3/4 of this album so I guess I should be happy. It's strange to skip tracks on a Chiodos album for me though.

Disappointing, bi-polar, nothing really grabbed me. Plus Craig's little whine/yell at the end of every other line is highly obnoxious. All's Well is still the only thing I can listen to with his voice on it.

I wish Craig and Brandon could both be lead singers. Trading off IaG style

UG Introduction led me directly into an ad for Devil playing the chorus of 3 AM.

The quality of the listen is seriously impacted by how disjointed the flow of this album is. I'm really having a hard time listening through it, without skipping around.

It really doesnt matter who is doing the singing when the music behind it is bad

Illuminaudio and Devil are both bad

The songs are all at different volumes and qualities. It's hard to tell if the album actually sounds this muddy and terrible or if they just don't give a flying fuck about the listener's first impression.

Phew, was getting sick of streaming the entire album by hopping between Youtube, Purevolume, and all the other spots they officially released the entire album in pieces.

Underwhelmed by this. Production is all over the place, this doesn't sound like a coherent album at all to me.
