Product Description

Product Description

Japanese Version featuring a Bonus Track: Homebody.

Amazon.ca

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

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.

In Bush's third release (fourth if you count Deconstucted as an album), it seems that they tried to do something a bit different than in their last two releases, Sixteen Stone and Razorblade Suitcase. The Science Of Things has a more experimental tone to it, several of the tracks have a more electronic influence to them as well as a bit more high speed and frentic pace than we usually see from Bush. While there is still plenty of good old fashioned rock, loud guitars and pounding drumbeats, there is no denying that this album just sounds different than 16 Stone, and Razor. Suitcase. That's not nessecarily a bad thing though, some of the tracks are quite good and of the quality that we've come to expect from the band over the years. The Chemicals Between Us, Warm Machine and Letting The Cables Sleep are all quality tracks as are the slightly more hard tracks of Spacetravel and Mindchanger. All in all, The Science Of Things is not quite up the standars set by Bush's previous two releases, but it comes pretty close. In the band's desire to break the mold and experiment a little, they've lost some of the grunge rock edge that made them so great in the first place, and show that they're probably better sticking to their roots a little more. Still Bush's latest has it's moments and shows that even when experimenting the band still manages to turn out a pretty decent product.

...that their lyrics are not meaningful, for the most part. I know that the Nirvava-tribute band thing has something to do with that, undoubtedly. Still, their music is unique, and their guitarist is one of the more talented out there. The best song I think is "Warm Machine". The other good songs are "Jesus Online", "The Disease of the Dancing Cats", and "Altered States". The Dancing Cats thing is cool because it is psychedelic in some ways, and I like the part when the drums speed up. "Letting the Cables Sleep" was a song I didn't originally like, but it is a good song that will grow on you. "The Chemicals Between Us" is a song I also like, but is more techno and almost an overuse of sonics. The other songs I either don't like, or I tuned out because the lyrics did not compute in my mind. Although I don't have Razorblade Suitcase, they use effects more on this CD than any other, and it tones it down somewhat. Good effort.

Bushes '94 album Sixteen Stone was simpely amazing. In The Science of Things, Bush attempts to branch out without losing sight of what made their earlier music brilliant. In some cases, they succeeded, but as a whole the album doesn't have what made Sixteen stone so good. The tracks "warm machine," "the chemicals between us," and "letting the cables sleep," are all wonderful tracks, retaining the "old bush" flavor while showing the evolution that their music has gone through. Unfortunately, just about all the rest of the tracks are pure vanilla. They might be pretty good the first couple of times listening to them, but they get old and predictable very, very quickly. Should you buy the CD? It's hard to say. If it's worth your money to buy a CD for three good songs, go for it. Otherwise, your money is better spent elsewhere (get sixteen stone if you don't already have it).

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.
