4 stars 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.
