Aiden, 'Conviction' (Victory)

Critical Mass
Label: Victory

by Trevor Kelley

Beginning with 2004's Our Gangs Dark Oath, these flamboyant Seattle goth punks have spent more time fretting about onstage makeup than actual songs, churning out two albums that borrowed heavily from early My Chemical Romance. Here, though, they pull from a weightier set of influences -- the shimmering guitars of U2 ("She Will Love You") and the somber balladeering of Nick Cave ("The Opening Departure"). Aiden still don't sound very original, but at least they've grown ambitious about something more than their image.
