Aiden: Nightmare Anatomy

Sound — 3
Ouch, that's one way to describe it. I bought this CD after hearing and being impressed by the first two video's released off the record. Sadly, the rest of the album was pretty dull and boring. Songs start to tie together, lyrics become dull. The guitar parts are simple and have nothing interesting about them. It's the perfect scene album. Also, these guys should stop playing dress up and start focusing more on the music, maybe then they'll release a quality album.

Lyrics — 1
I sort of enjoyed the lyrics. I like the themes, with all that horror kind of stuff. When you strip away the metaphors, it's just angsty, depressing, and weak. Wil ties hard to sound like some punk rocker, always attempting to make his voice raspy. He just can't get rid of the poppiness he has. The screaming was awful, weak, pitiful, just pathetic. A lame excuse at trying to be hardcore. And it follows the same formula, sing a little, scream a little.

Overall Impression — 2
It was a mistake buying this. They put no thought into their music and it looks like they're just trying to sell their image. Here's a thought, don't buy it. Don't illegally download it. Don't use iTunes to get it. Just ignore it. I was dumb enough to buy it and I regret it. Would I buy it again, no, imnfact, if I ever find it, I would break it to try and forget the awful experience of listening to it. The scenesters can have this for all I care, it will fade out by 2010 anyway.

    Aiden is not an emo band. Their image is emo. And for the guy who gave the shitty review you must not know much. I know Jake W. and he puts his friggen heart and soul into the music. I agree they do need to calm down with their image. all in all buy the C.D. Hell i listen to cannibal corpse and i like aiden.

    You cant say that aiden is not a emo band.if they portray the image thart they are emo, then they are emo. get the through your F***ing head. Aiden suck and any other emo band sucks in my opinion. The only cool thing about Aiden is that they have a good scream (which they barely use). For all of you thinking about buyiny this CD...DONT!!!! Get a cd from a band that dont cut there wrists. And get a cd from a band that actually has some meaning behind their lyrics.

    This isnt their first album, Our gangs dark oath was. And their lyrics are good, they have had thought put into them. I love "Life I Left Behind".

    This is, by far, the lamest attempt at an album on Earth. Wil is an awful vocalist whose lyrics match his vocal abilities. I do not want to hear about burning or razorblades or anything to do with suicide or emo in just about every song they release. I particulary take great offence to the fact that they try to imitate the sound and image of the Misfits, as going as far as to incorprate the Misfits logo onto their guitars and clothing. This band is nothing on music which they use to try and sell through their rubbish dark image. They are so irritating that they could almost make your ears bleed. Stay well away from the boring lyrics and morbid sound of this album

    your so retarded..just cause you look a certin way doesnt mean thats how you are. Aiden is more of a Goth band if anything. they dont even look emo He wears his make-up and everything to heavy and all that to be emo he doesnt sing about "she broke up with me cut my wrist" he talks about his past and nightmares and who cares if you dont understand what hes talking about? When you make music your suppose to write how you feel, and it dont matter if people understand or not, as long as it means something to you(the band) that really matters stupid stereotypes

    yeah right... The Misfits arent that good. they are way over hyped! Aiden has their own sound. Get over it
