Bush used to be a respectable band. IT even looked like they would break free of that pretty boy image with Razorblade Suitcase, an amazing album that boasted awesome tracks. Then came The Science of Things, not great, but still listenable. IF there was any doubt that bush is over, this album will erase it. You might think I'm wrong by listening to the first three tracks. They're pretty good. "Solutions" is typical Bush but is comforting and Rossdale sounds great. "Handful of Ghosts" will really have you confused about the album. It's one of the best songs they've ever done with a haunting chorus that is unforgettable. Even the radio friendly "People we Love" is good for some air quitar solos. After that, turn off the album. It's downhill and the album is downright awful. Every track opens with the same quitar loops and songs such as "Superman" and "Fugitive" will make you want to pull your hair out. How can a man with such a gifted voice sing so horribly on these tracks? Even the supossedly beautiful "Inflated" is an awful, redundant torture. If I were Gwen, I'd be pretty pissed if someone wrote that song for me. The rest of the album needs no mention. Simply refer to the comments above. Too bad the first songs of the album didn't influence the rest. If no one has told him yet, Gavin, you might be beautiful and have a great voice, but it's time to throw in the towel.
