Well, an augmented chord certainly has a haunting sound to it, but not
necessarily concentrated and packed like a diminished 7th. But it all
depends on context, I suppose. When used in certain contexts, both chords
can sound completely innocuous. E.g. C -> C# dim -> G/D, or C -> C aug ->
F. For that matter, a simple major triad can sound extremely haunting when
"You are a very disagreeable person." "NO."
