Product Description

Alongside Foo Fighters and the youthful Irish four-piece Ash, Bush are latter-day grunge's standard-bearers. And, although the quartet may be critically derided, they didn't get to sell more than 15 million copies of their previous records (mostly in the US) by listening to the press--or, indeed, making any sudden musical changes. So Science of Things is basically Razorblade Suitcase part 2, albeit a little more refined, melodic, and polished. And, although there are no instant megahits like "Swallowed" here, Rossdale's throaty Cobain-influenced rasp on songs like the downbeat "The Chemicals Between Us" and "Prizefighter", coupled with Pulsford's meaty, chunky guitar sound, means that there's more than enough here to keep the fans happy. --Everett True

Bush is a great band. I can't stand when people always say they're either Nirvana rip offs or they lost it. I have yet to see, besides Deconstructed, an album that I do not like. Every album I have ever listened to by them has been exceptional. We all know Sixteen Stone, Razorblade, Golden State. But, many consider 'The Science of Things' to be their downfall. Why?
This album has such a change, a variety, a look, that really looks to be the last album that was like that. I mean, I look around now today, and every album looks boring. A lot sound great, but many don't have a look, that original feel, that time and effort when album covers and look was just as important. 'The Science of Things' is an art piece.
I listen to 'Letting the Cables Sleep' all the time. It's such a great song. The feeling I receive every time I listen to it, is just epheral. It's such a moving song. That right there is the pinnacle song on the album. I see so many different images, avid and lucid...all at the same time.
I listen to 'Chemicals Between Us' or 'Warm Machine' and hear the classic Bush, but with a modern touch. These songs are killer, bad ass, and still adrenaline rushed. This is a kick ass alternative rock band.
I listen to '40 Miles from the Sun' and 'Jesus Online' and hear exceptional lyrics. The music is there and to such a damn dismay, it was unnoticed, unrecognized. From here on, Bush was only successful live, so people could see the classic 'hits.' This is a disappointment and one reason I think they dwindled now.
It's a shame because like this, and Golden State which is to be reviewed, I still believe in good music. Nirvana, Bush, STP, Dinosaur Jr, etc, etc...all great alternative. Most of the bands disbanded and I believed Bush could have gone onward, which they did.

I have to say I love this album. The 2nd album is prolly my favorite with Deconstructed being my least fave. This review is more of a statement about the band. I'm so sick of people comparing Gavin's voice to Kurt Cobains. They have completely different voices. If they had similar voices, I wouldn't be a Bush fan cuz I don't care for Kurt's voice at all. I like some of Nirvana's music but to me the two bands don't compare. If I were to compare anything of Bush's music to Nirvana's the only album that even remotely resembles theirs is 16 Stone. then if u listen to songs like GLycerine and Letting the Cables Sleep, you can tell about different their voices are. Cobain has a grittier voice while Gavin has a smoother voice even on the angrier songs it's just a more melodic voice. For Cobain, the grit in his voice worked for his music while Gavin's smoother voice works for his. If they sounded alike I would get them mixed up but the fact us I don't. Each has a very distinctive sound that can't be mistaken for anyone else. Even my mom, who usually thinks every band on the radio is Creed, can tell what Bush and Nirvana sound like. So stop comparing them and just appreciate the music that each band makes.

This album recieved a bad rap when it came out and I feel that it didn't deserve it at all.
First of all, I have never really understood what all the talk is about this being Bush's electronica influenced album. Sure, there are some computerized beeps and blips here and there but beyond that there's really nothing else besides the standard guitar, bass, drums and excellent songwriting. There's nothing here that couldn't be replicated live on stage.
This album opens up with one of Bush's strongest tracks, "Warm Machine". Even people I know that don't like Bush really enjoy this song. It's got a pretty uplifting feel to it and it has one of the best chorus' of any Bush song. It's very-well written. Another great song on here is "40 Miles From The Sun". It's a slow one, but it's hauntingly beautiful. It carries an apocolyptic feel to it and the lyrics have some very interesting imagery. Gavin's vocals have a real ache on this track. I'm sure most people have heard "The Chemicals Between Us" at some point or another but another hard rocking song (perhaps their heaviest ever) is "The Disease of the Dancing Cats". This song just pounds you into submission for four minutes and doesn't let up until it's done. It's a great song and I was definitely surprised Bush had written something this heavy the first time I heard it.
However, what I really enjoy about this album is the experimentation with the songs. "Jesus Online" has more of a skeletal, mysterious feel than any Bush's song previous and "Spacetravel" at first hits you like a straight-ahead rock song but by the end it has dissolved into a mirage of shimmering, interlocking guitar lines and gentle drumming.

I liked Bush's first 2 albums. Sure they had jumped on the grunge bandwagon and were heavily Nirvana influenced, but they still gave enough of themselves to sound good. Then poor Gavin blundered and this band has never recovered and is pretty much dead. What did he try to do you ask? He tried to jump on another band wagon, only he jumped on the wrong one. Let me explain. People were saying techno was the next big trend in music and Gavin must have taken this message to heart. They cranked out this bad album only to see it drop off the charts faster than a Osama Bin Laden Tribute album. Techno rock wasn't the next big trend, Numetal was. Korn & Limp Bizkit shot to the top of the charts while deep sea divers will never be able to reach where this album sank to. I almost feel sorry for Gavin but I don't. Bush is dead but at least Gavin has his royalties & the beautiful Gwen Stefani (plus her even bigger bank accounts). Gee I hope the Bass guitarist is off unemployment. Too bad he didn't get the girl. Bottom line is this album sucks. Stick to the first 2 and even give Golden State a listen. All 3 are much better than this failed effort.
