Wasn't well received? People went as far as saying it was the best Chiodos album. When they toured with Brandon, the outcome surpassed my expectation. I went to one of those shows not expecting to hear a lot of old material (i was actually hoping they'd play more from Illuminaudio) I think its more of a ego thing for Craig. I don't think he wants to give credit where its due to Brandon for helping Chiodos make a stellar album
I miswrote that. I meant wasn't as popular. But ya, I do agree that it is a ego thing with Craig. He kind of trashed it a little in the interview lol. But performance wise, I think Brandon fell a little short in comparison to Craig but his vocals were spot on.
