Biography

The new BUSH album, The Sea of Memories, is steeped in the notion that one has to know where they came from to know where they’re going. “We are the sum of everything we’ve done -- right, wrong and in-between,” says singer and guitarist Gavin Rossdale. “We’re all victims, and benefactors, of our past.” And Bush should know. The British-born band has ... Read more in Amazon's Bush Store

Razorblade Suitcase is an all around great album, and a super follw-up to their already popular Sixteen Stone.
Chad Spivak
The remix for "Deconstructed" was completely unnecessary. "Straight No Chaser" is the first truly slow song on the album, and it's pretty good.
"monster365"
While I might not go that far, I will say that this is really a great, thoroughly solid album, and one that should never be judged by first listen.

For their sophomore effort "Razorblade Suitcase," Bush went into the studio with producer Steve Albini to replicate what Nirvana had done with "In Utero"-- strip away the gloss and create a jagged, thorny, live-sounding record. (Not that Bush had that much gloss in the first place. Compared to "Sixteen Stone," "Nevermind" sounds like a Michael Jackson album.) They succeeded, resulting in a(nother) string of huge radio hits and one of my personal all-time favorite albums.

Albini's rough-edged production is a perfect fit for Bush. Drums are impossibly loud, guitars churn and scrape unpredictably, and Gavin Rossdale's voice floats crystal-clear above the rest of the mix. His songs are a blend of straight-ahead rockers and more intricate songs filled with twists and tangents. "Swallowed" and "Greedy Fly" have to be two of the weirdest, least straightforward hit singles in rock. Ballads "Straight No Chaser" and "Bonedriven" are like skewed, dissonant reflections of the bands' earlier signature hit "Glycerine." As the album progesses, the mood darkens, culminating in the austere "Communicator" and the menacing "Synapse," before closing with the more hopeful "Distant Voices" and a short reprise of "History." There's not a bad song to be found, all of the tracks building on "Sixteen Stone"'s strengths while simultaneously branching out into more obscure territory.

Bush took a lot of critical punishment for following in Nirvana's footsteps, and while the kinship is undeniable, it's also nothing new in rock music: Nirvana is indebted to the Pixies, who are indebted to the Jesus and Mary Chain, and so on. Bush's music stands on its own despite its influences, and "Razorblade Suitcase" is their crowning acheivement, an album that perfectly captures its era yet hasn't dulled with age.

I've been reading the reviews for this album, and alot of them disgust me. I have a feeling that alot of these people who rate bush's album with one star go home and listen to Smashmouth or Kid Rock, two of the biggest flunky's I can think of in today's popular music scene. Razorblade Suitcase is by far the best Bush cd. Sixteen Stone was also an awesome cd , but it lacked the rawness that the band displayed on their second album. Their music, especially on tracks such as Bonedriven and Straight No Chaser, has the amazing ability to convey the emotions that Gavin's feeling. I can understand why some people just don't get the music. It's because their shallow and simple minded, who would rather listen to a little ditty that everyones listening to then a song that was practically torn from the heart.

Ok. I've looked @ the other reviews (ah-umm, the bad ones) and I can see how a person might not like this CD. I almost returned it b/c, like one other reviewer said,the music kinda sounds the same (and I was let down by "mouth" @ first). But after listening to each one, I discovered that they're all different in their own ways. "Swallowed" "Greedy Fly" and "Mouth" are probably the most recognizable tracks on here. (Note:The version of "mouth" on this album ISN'T the one you hear on the radio & is on the American Werewolf In Paris SndTrk) "Synapse" "Bonedriven" "Straight No Chaser" are the 3 that are really good, even though they're not well-known.Try it; I wasn't really a hard-core Bush fan before. :)

When I first listened to this album, I was quite ashamed to say, "I wasted my money on this crap?" When I really like a band, I like to finish my collection of all their work. That's the main reason I bought 'Razorblade Suitcase.' The first time I listened to it, I knew I could've done without it. But when I gave it a chance and listened to it another couple of times, I fell in love with it. Bush can't top '6teen Stone' but this album comes pretty close to doing so. In order of greatness, here it is: 'Greedy Fly', 'Mouth', 'Swallowed', 'Communicator', 'Cold Contagious', 'Straight No Chaser', 'Bonedriven', 'Synapse', 'History'...Wish I could go on. The point is, it's all good.

everyone loves sixteen stone and hates everything bush did after it, but i say that razorblade suitcase was their best work and the rest weren't as good. how can anyone hate razorblade suitcase? it appears to be a emotion-filled album about a marriage gone bad. sixteen stone was just corporate, commercial rock for the time it was released. razorblade suitcase is a great, serious album.

Okay, I've read where someone has questioned why people call this the greatest album ever. I'll tell you. The album is so dark, edgy, and emotional, it passes Sixteen Stone in terms of lyrics, music, and passion. In Sixteen Stone (also a great album), Gavin's voice sounded distant and merely content, but on Razorblade, Gavin's been stripped of the vocal enhancer and now sings with passion and intensity. The lyrics are not straight up; they let you decide what emotion to feel while listening to the album. No other album has had the effect on me this one has had, and even though their new album The Science of Things is the best album this year, it's not as good as this one. Pick it up. You won't be disappointed.
