" Different Worlds " is the second album of these Americans.
Michael Dearing leaved the group after the first album, so in this second
long play, Salem Hill turned into a trio.
In this second work, the band leaves aside the neo-prog sound that
characterized part of his first disc, and goes clearly into the sound of the
Americans King's X, one of the influences confessed by the components of
Salem Hill, as we can estimate in the tracks "Here and Now", "Same Planet
Different Worlds", "There's Always Canada", and "Invisible" with these
unmistakable vocal harmonies and these guitar riffs typical of King's X.
In other tracks, we can at last, noticing the influence of Kansas clearly,
so typical of the band in the later works, as are "Brave New World",
"Question of Honor" and the 8 minutes track "Listen to me". Maybe the best
thing was the rockish song "Can't Let Go", besides the mentioned ones
"There's Always Canada", "Invisible", and "Listen to me".
In general, a record based on rather short songs, better than the first one,
thought more hard rockish one. Acceptable.
