The Best of Classic, Pop, and Modern Rock

Like bands similar to Nickelback and bands similar to Maroon 5, Aldo has developed from his early musical influences into an artist who is both a unique voice and connected to the past.

In his debut album, Aldo’s songs occasionally make use of power pop and new wave elements. Synth sound introduces some of these songs, and the music has the same bounce that made pop an unstoppable force in the 1980s. The quality and complexity of the songwriting and the aggressive tone of some of the songs connect to Aldo’s classic rock influences.

However, Aldo’s second release, Villains & Heroes, pushes this sound further. It mixes rock and alternative along with more adult subject matter. By Aldo’s own words, we learn that these stories have been pulled from his own life experience. The songs focus on finding the right person and the challenges of losing her, proving that love isn’t simple.

In many ways, listening to this progression is similar to experiencing Nickelback, Maroon 5, or even Bon Jovi. These are bands that launched with undeniable energy and sound and that drew heavily on the influences of their time. As they grew, they retained these influences in some way, whether it was vocal phrasing or a certain guitar rhythm.

Bands similar to Nickelback and Bon Jovi have something else in common with Aldo Leopardi. As they continue to perform and record, they establish their own identity. It’s like they are excavating some hidden sound out of a mountain of influences, where underneath the material they find their true form.

We can’t wait to see what they’ll discover next.
