Subject: I have found a CD that I think you would enjoy
Not THAT bad, believe me...
(4 out of 5 stars)
"I really hate it when people make such a big deal about how awful they think this CD is... I mean, if you want to call a Uriah Heep CD bad (and if you're anything like me, you absolutely HATE to have to do that), think of 1985's "Equator" before you set your sights on "Different World". "Different World" has a few mediocre tracks, it's true... but it also has some highly enjoyable ones, like "Which Way Will the Wind Blow", "Cross that Line", and the title track. In fact, "Different World" makes very frequent visits to my CD player... It's an enjoyable CD, trust me! It's certainly no masterpiece... I mean, if you want to hear what this lineup of Uriah Heep can REALLY do, I'd suggest you give their 1995 masterpiece, "Sea of Light" a try... Trust me, you'll be impressed. But Don't think that "Different World" is a total waste of time... it's not.For the record, I don't listen to Aerosmith... I was one of those kids who's mother banned MTV from the house while he was growing up, who was friends with kids who's parents were all the same way. I didn't discover Heep until I was 19, when a (post-childhood) friend let me borrow his copy of 1972's "Demons and Wizards"... I was in love with Heep from that point on, and as buying entire albums of a band is the main way I hear their music (I live in a part of the country that knows only country music stations to inhabit its airwaves. Feel free to extend to me your sympathies), getting exposure to other bands is a very slow process for me. So I can't say this CD sounds like Aerosmith because I don't know what Aerosmith sounds like (I only know "Living on the Edge" because of Weird Al Yankovic's take on it with "Living in the Fridge"). I just happen to think "Different World" is a very enjoyable, though hardly perfect, album."
