Same difference? I think not. Entombed have understandably strayed from their death metal roots to the point where only Entombed clones Dismember still sound like them. Which is not to say that Entombed went all bad, it's just that they became, well, a rock'n'roll band.

With "Same Difference" they don't even rock a lot any more. There's the lazy pulse of "Clauses" and a few up-tempo rockers the likes of "What You Need" and "Smart Aleck", but other than that it's a rather inconspicuous album I'm afraid. I think I'll pass on Entombed in the future, and I'd suggest you already give a pass on "Same Difference". Or at least listen to it before you buy.
