Billboard - Album Review
February 07, 2008

Vans Warped tour darlings Chiodos are back in a big way. Never mind the ridiculously massive pre-order campaign surrounding the Equal Vision act's latest effort, Bone Palace Ballet—the beefed-up production harnesses the raw, unrestrained energy of the group's breakout release, 2005's All's Well That Ends Well, into a grander, more substantive affair. The album still packs the hardcore punch of the band's previous work, with plenty of heavy, blistering guitar riffs and frontman Craig Owens' rough growls and shrieks. But there's a newfound orchestral and melodic touch, with livelier, piano-driven jaunts that nod to Queen—see "Lexington (Joey Pea-Pot With a Monkey Face)"—and stripped-down, string-backed ballads ("Intensity in Ten Cities"). A mature step up for a band on the rise.
