|1. Everything Zen|
|4. Little Things|
If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, Nirvana should've been quite flattered by Sixteen Stone. The English quartet perfectly mimics the early '90s grunge sound with this '94 release. As for Kurt Cobain comparisons, singer Gavin Rossdale has a captivating voice, but lyrics are not his forte, as the splintered ramblings of "Everything Zen" indicates. (Gotta do better than "There's no sex in your violence.") The players meanwhile produce a perfectly competent approximation of their Northwestern heroes. "Little Things" is a successful rewrite of "Smells Like Teen Spirit" while "Machinehead" crunches like Pearl Jam and Soundgarden. In fact, the whole album feels like a throwback to 1992. Sixteen Stone may be derivative, but it's catchy as hell, too. --Rob O'Connor
I love the album, (songs wise) but it come with just a thin jacket cover, feels pretty cheap, not even 180 gPublished 22 months ago by Evan S.
I'll cut right to the chase. This sounds like someone simply took a 16bit CD off the shelf and ripped a vinyl copy. Read morePublished on June 4 2013 by Aero9k
one of the best alternative bands from the UK... they inspire some current artistes... the coarse voice of gavin rossdale just fits in that genre!Published on Dec 16 2010 by Tang T. Yu
Sixteen Stone is generally regarded as one of the rock albums in the 90s and for the most part, this album remains under-appreciated. Read morePublished on March 23 2007 by Jason Hutton
Why did a band with so any decent singles yet so many pathetic non-singles have to name itself after such an incompetent president? Read morePublished on July 10 2004
