Import edition of their 2001 studio album includes the bonus track, 'Japanese Freight Train'. 13 tracks in all including the first single, 'Speed Kills'.
, Bush's fourth album, is their strongest to date. This record gleams with power and purpose, as well it should. Bush have been slogging their way around the toilets, arenas and stadia of the world for a decade now: they may be orthodox, but they wield a thrilling control over rock's tensions and dynamics. In "Solutions", "Superman", "Fugitive" and "Reasons", Golden State
boasts four exemplary alternative rock anthems that any band would be proud to own. There are no weak tracks, no fillers. Gavin Rossdale sounds anguished and driven, and his band is a fantastic, febrile unit. So, did the early, embryonic Bush begin their career copying Nirvana
? Who cares? Golden State
is a rich, resourceful record from a band near their peak. --Ian Gittins
