Product Description

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

This is an absolutely awesome CD by an awesome band. Probably one of the best bands to come out of England in the past 10 years. It's very hard to understand why this album wasn't an instant hit when it came out. I remember it became a huge success when the Machinehead video started to get airplay on MTV in 1996.
1. Everything Zen: Very good song, one of my favorites, and a good way to start off the CD. Very contagious chorus. It also has a very cool guitar intro. (5/5)

2. Swim: A much darker song, it maintains a slow pace throughout the whole song. Similar in some ways to Greedy Fly. It blows up at the ending. (4.5/5)

3. Bomb: It begins pretty much like a Nirvana song, I see some resemblance to Something in the Way in the slow parts. (4/5)
4. Little Things: Very good and very catchy song. Probably my favorite song on this CD. Can't get tired of listening to it. There is some strong resemblance to Smells Like Teen Spirit. A homage perhaps. You can notice it more in the beginning (just when he starts to sing) and at the chorus. (5/5)
5. Comedown: A very, very good song. It's slow but it rocks. It's one of the best songs on the CD. (5/5)
6. Body: Another great song. The guitar intro is very cool. The chorus is really cool as well. Another one of my favorites.
7. Machinehead: Everybody knows this one, so I don't think I need to say anything. Kick ass song. (5/5)
8. Testosterone: Probably not a bad song, but after listening to Machinehead, it sends it to a lower level. "Got a big old gun" (4/5)
9. Monkey: Another one of those Bush songs that starts slow and gains pace as the song develops. (4/5)
10. Glycerine: Another one of the singles and big hits. I absolutely love this one for it's simplicity.

When I first heard of Bush, I thought they were another poser grunge band. I picked up Sixteen Stone and was immediatly hooked on their music. To this day, they still take a spin in my CD player alot. Actually right now they are tied for my favorite band with Red Hot Chili Peppers. Anyways on to the review.
I know many of you think that this band is a Nirvana rip off but I think that Gavin's voice sounds nothing like Kurt's from Nirvana. Little things may copy some of the aspects of Smells Like Teen Spirit but its still a good song. The rest of the songs on here are pretty much original.
I only dislike a few songs. The rest are very good with excellent vocals. The only problem I have with this band is that their lyrics are as hard as hell to figure out. I mean, the album title, Sixteen Stone, what does that supposed to mean? Everything Zen is hard to understand and I'm still trying to figure out what it means. Anyways, the songs I like on here are.......wait a minute. I just looked at the CD cover and I don't really dislike any of the songs. It's just that some of the songs, like Body and Swim and Bomb aren't GREAT great. The rest of the songs on here are awesome. Bush is a band where either you do like their work or you don't.
I was pretty impressed with the running time of this CD. 52 minutes of pure great music with awesome riffs. Just think, 12 tracks, 52 min. That's over 4 min per song! At first I liked Razorblade Suitcase better because it had slower songs and some better hard ones. But now that I listen to this more, I think I finally like Sixteen Stone better!
All in all, if you are a true Bush fan, you MUST have this in your collection. It's their best work so far.

The European version of Nirvana cranks out a pseudo-grunge album which, unfortunately, has only a few good tracks on it, all of which you've probably heard on the radio a million and one times. For an early effort this isn't exactly a complete failure or a sorry attempt considering how successful the Seattle scene was at the time this was recorded, but Bush really could've put more effort into their songwriting and into getting some originality, not to mention made Gavin Rossdale work on his lyrics, which seem to have no direction a lot of the time and no meaning whatsoever, even if it may be subliminal, the connection to the listener still just isn't there. This album was really saved only by the singles, for the rest of the songs are nothing to brag about or anything the least bit memorable with the exception of "Body", which at least has some melody, and "Alien", which starts out decent but descends gradually throughout the track.
The singles themselves only shine because of their pure catchiness, not due to original songwriting or extreme creativity. "Little Things" insultingly rips off Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" with blatant obviousness thats really quite sad if any experienced listener misses the connection. As for "Everything Zen", "Comedown", "Machinehead", and the best of the singles, "Glycerine" go, they save the record from utter failure. None of the band members are all that talented, as the drums and bass usually only lay out primitive attempts and only the basic rock song patterns, seeming to try very little experimentation with their instruments, including Gavin and Nigel's guitar parts, the latter of which becomes extremely irritating numerous times across the album.
