Aiden - Disguises

Seattle rockers begin to waver...

Some will be surprised to find that ‘Disguises’ is Aiden’s fifth studio album. There’s been a noticeable progression in sound over the years, but whether it’s for the better is debatable. You see, ‘Disguises’ is neither brilliant or dreadful. Aiden’s trademark frantic hooks have been swapped for a heavier sound musically, while sirens and spoken word quotes (including one from The Shining) segue the songs together. Frustratingly only ‘A Portrait Of The Artist’ and ‘Walk Among The Dead’ really stick in your head. It’s never a good sign when side-projects are creating better music than the main band.

Nothing much matters in August other than Reading & Leeds Festivals, right? This year we really were spoilt for choice as Blink-182, You Me At Six, A Day To Remember, Sleeping With Sirens and so many more GREAT rock bands brought the festival back to its roots. Plus there was the small matter of a couple of VERY special warm-up shows from Sleeping With Sirens and Gerard Way...
