Week 29 – Art Rock – Different Stories

Anubis begon in Sydney in 2004 als een samenwerking tussen Robert James Moulding (zang,gitaar & bas) en David Eaton (toetsen). Later werd de band uitgebreid naar een prog rock sextet. Different Stories is een nieuw Anubis album , maar de inhoud is dat niet… Dit is een collectie van hun beste songs die al eerder werden opgenomen, maar nu voorzien van een meer akoestische en zachtere muzikale stijl.

Prog Archives review: “More Anubis is a good thing, and this collection of previously released songs puts some of their best on one album with completely new musical arrangements. Different Stories is indeed different, because these are mellow, more acoustic versions of their songs. Two of my favorite songs, The Doctor and The Collapse from the debut 230503, unfortunately are not on here. Considering those are hard hitting tracks with punch, perhaps that is where the line was drawn.

They have so many good songs with melodies and phrasing that are easy to sing along to, so they really could do not wrong with their choices. I would call Different Stories a more accessible album that anyone can enjoy, and maybe that is the point to it. It is a less progressive sampling. Overall, it is a fine addition to their catalog, but it is not a starting point or a compilation. Someone seeking a compilation should likely go with Behind Our Eyes Live, 2014 since the original arrangements are stellar. It is still best to just buy them in order since their first two albums are the best place to start, but Different Stories should not be missed for fans of their music.”

Naast Anubis met Different Stories hebben we deze week: Airbag (All Rights Removed), Armonite (The Sun is New each Day), Also Eden (Redacted), Anima Mundi (The Way), Abraxas (Centurie) & Aisles (Aisles Compilation).
