I was a fan since I first heard those high pitched, girly vocals from one of my favorite frontmen Craig owens off their first album. All's Well That Ends Well was a classic. No Doubt about that, but then came Bone Pallace Ballet. Melodical, theatrical, heavy, everything I wasn't expecting from their sophomore album. That album came together so perfectly and you could just feel the passion oozing from your speakers.
Now on to Devil. It did not disappoint. Not one bit. There was not a single song I didnt enjoy. The best way I could put it is if you take the absolute best from those two albums, put them together and sprinkle a much more seasoned vocalist, then you have Devil. Don't second guess this album. Hearing the original band, (Im aware of the new guitarist) especially drummer and vocalist, brought a tear to my eye. Chiodos is back and has never been better. Hats off to these men. Now go buy the album!!!

With Craig Owens back at the helm you'd probably expect some of his work from the last few years to rub off on Chiodos and that's certainly true. Devil has much of the familiar Chiodos sound blended with a healthy dose of poppier sensibilities that were prevalent on D.R.U.G.S.' album. Old school fans will be pleased with songs like "Why the Munsters Matter" and "Expensive Conversations in Cheap Motels" that stand in stark contrast with all-clean songs like "3 AM" and "Under Your Halo" that are poppy enough to appear on any alternative rock station. Add tracks like the in-your-face "Behvis Bullock" and moody "Duct Tape" and you've got a wide range of enjoyable songs.

This wide range is my main problem with the album, however. It has a lot of great individual parts, but I struggle to see how they musically form a cohesive unit (lyrically it is very clear). If you don't mind a disjointed listening experience Devil is a tremendous effort, but since it bounces between styles so frequently I can't quite put it up in the echelon of the greatest of albums.

The main positive that stood out to me was how much better Craig Owens' voice has become since Bone Palace Ballet. Some past songs like "We Swam From Albatross" were near-unlistenable for me due to Craig's straining but he's pretty tremendous throughout every song on Devil. They've definitely got a bright future ahead.

This album has all of the best qualities of previous Chiodos albums and is everything I had hoped for. I think Craig Owens made a triumphant return as frontman but it's the music that really does it for me. Afterall, I liked Illuminaudio just fine without Owens. He does add a little extra in terms of classic Chiodos sound so it's probably best that he's on the album. As far as the band members, their personal problems still aren't completely gone but I hope they work it out so it's not a short-lived reunion. I'd hate to have to wait too long for a follow-up album. They do a great job of placing the heavy parts sparingly and just where they have the most impact. Musically, it feels like all the parts were worked out just right to give a rise and fall of emotion and compliment each other. It's easy to get lost in the melody and then get slammed with aggression in a way that goes beyond previous Chiodos albums. Many parts surprised me at how strong and impacting they were. It's a great mix of range and styles and a truly grand return for both Owens and the rest of the band. The album also features the production of David Bottrill and a new guitar player, ex-Fall of Troy.

Ok... I'm biased. Craig Owens could fart America the Beautiful and I would consider it perfection. But in all seriousness, this band deserves to be heard and recognized by the masses. The songwriting on this album is amazing. Musically and lyrically, they have reached new heights and have released a CD that I cannot stop listening to. The diversity and emotion displayed throughout is something to be admired. The only problem with this release is that I already want more.

As a Chiodos fan since the band's beginning, I was really looking forward to this album and their tour. This album is pretty good but I don't know how long it will take until I go back to listening to All's Well That Ends Well and Bone Palace Ballet. I expected the band to progress more on their sound since the addition of the guitarist from The Fall of Troy and the absence of Jason Hale, but I'm not sure how I feel about it yet. I also can't help but feel that this is just a combination of their past work so they can please their fans with the same type of material. When Craig wrote songs, he lived the lyrics and emotions. I'm not feeling it come across as much on this record as much as the last ones. This is a good album and you should buy it, but buy their earlier work too!

This album is very good, they added a few too many weird radio/soft songs that dont really fit chiodos but the rest of the album is great, Saw them live as well and the songs off this album were great live.

Ive been a serious fan of Chiodos since the first time I heard theres no penguins in alaska. With the release of Illuminaudio I all but accepted the fact that the Chiodos brand of music was over. I gave D.R.U.G.S. a shot and they just didnt do it for me. Craig Owens' acoustic stuff was good but just too soft. Then I got word the boys were getting back together.

I bought every single as soon as it was released, falling in love with each. The Chiodos sound is not only back, its refined, its matured. The pain of the separation is prevalent. Craig's spiritual struggle is as well. But theses tracks are utterly amazing. The things these guys do are brilliant. Only Chiodos could produce a score of this magnitude.

Every sound that you hear is the result of an instrument being played. Every word bleeds emotion. From the bottom of my heart, thank you once again Chiodos.
