Beautiful World vs Different World

Last year saw two comebacks – one by  Iron Maiden and one by Take That.

Iron Maiden’s comeback was a splash and put across the idea that they were a force to reckon with and that they weren a has-been band. The new sounds have typical iron maiden vocals and guitaring with an anime theme based video for their first video. The album A Different World, is worth listening to if u r a rock music lover. For once their lyrics aren bout abstract themes, but is quite vague in its theme as is wit most Iron Maiden songs. Their music seems to have toned down from a heavy metal sound to a hard rock sound.

Take That without Robbie Williams? Are you kiddin me? Thats wat i thot at first. But you have to agree that Gary Barlowe seems to be doing a good job running the show. The original line-up minus Robbie williams hav launched their latest album Beautiful World, with their first single Patience. It isn as good as a typical Take That song, but is quite listenable due its lyrics:

Cause i, need time,
My heart is numb has no feeling,
So while im still healing,
Just try and have a little patience

Heres Different World (Different world)


Beautiful World (Patience)

  1. Dunno about thine musical proclivities, so forgive mine outburst. But both I think were eminently forgettable. Not that I care about to much about either band or their albums thereof.
    Iron Maiden because they just refuse to go away (they had a release a coupla years back, so dunno if you can call theirs a comeback).
    And Take That because Messrs. Barlow and Owen have finally realised that they can’t swing it on their own, and must be kicking themselves in the teeth for throwing Robbie outta Take That. I’m sure Robbie Williams had a good laugh when he saw that lame duck ‘different world’ video.
    PS: the iron maiden album you refer to was called A Matter of Life and Death (probably in acknowledgement of the fact that this could be their last chance to stay relevant to a newer world) and A Different World was one of da tracks/singles. Cheers.

    hmmm ooops .. i believe VH1 displayed a different world under the album different world…but wen i googled turns out its from the akbum a matter of life and death. All appologies!
    Second, ancientmariner pointed out that it wasnt a comeback of sorts because they had two albums before the present album. But these two albums didn come to India…im still tryin to fig out why…i think they hav had their share of hits too…
    Hmm true but u do realise that robbie never contributed much vocally…and their new album has way different from any of their other songs like Back for good, different in a bad way….

  3. Thanks for sharing this information. Really is pack with new knowledge. Keep them coming.
