I got this mostly for the single chemicals between us.
It is still growing on me.
The first track on the album is a good grabber.
Some really interesting Titles and Lyrics.
A great follow up to their previous release.

Bush either hits a home run or strikes out. They have some outstanding songs, but too often they miss to be considered one of the best 90's bands. Chemicals between us is the only track worthy to be published on this disc and it's a great song.

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.

Althoug a commercially sucessful band, Bush were never one of the most innovative or creative groups around. Their rock-grunge combination presented some competent, solid songs in wildly uneven records. Their thir release is no exception, just another album that brings nothing new but still has two or three moments that sparkle nonetheless.
This time the band approached a more electronic-oriented direction, going for some experimentation in their sound. Despite this change, most of the songs here still seem like a rehash of previous material, failing to engage and truly surprise. Some atmospheric and laid-back moments like "40 Miles From the Sun" or "Letting the Cables Sleep" are interesting and captivating enough, but for the most part the results are average and not too memmorable. This is a listenable and alright effort, but it gets tiresome fast and there are no big reasons to return to it afterwards.
A decent and somewhat lackluster rock album.

I just picked this one up the other day and its ok. Sixteen stone was obviously there best but this one is still classic Bush. I suggest picking up 2002's Golden State from them. That cd rocks harder! I wish these guys would come to my town of Minneapolis soon!

who cares if they used a little bit of synthesizer effects in this album? i still think its a fantastic solid album and a great follow up to razorblade. i agree that deconstructed was kinda...eh.. but i guess it was just something to keep the real bush fans in their seats as they write more classic bush material. sure, it isnt bushed best work, but it still friggin rocks.

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.
