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

Editorial Reviews

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic 90's rock February 22, 2005
Format:Audio CD
When this album came out in 1994, you either loved it or hated it. Most of those who hated it did so because they sounded too much like Nirvana (and Nirvana at this time were gods). Regardless of the criticisms, it didn't seem to hurt the album's success. "Everything Zen," "Machinehead", "Little Things," "Comedown," and "Glycerine" were huge hits -- all over the radio. I still hear these songs today on the local modern rock radio station. This is because of one good reason -- the songs are incredible, regardless of their supposed lack of originality. Bush (along with Collective Soul, Live, Foo Fighters, and others) created what would be called post-grunge rock, which is basically a more polished grunge sound with greater pop-sensibility. This sound dominated the rest of the 90's (for example, Third Eye Blind in the late 90's) until the rise of various metal groups (such as Linkin Park) and emo-punk groups (such as Taking Back Sunday) that dominate modern rock radio today.

This debut album from Bush will forever be considered as one of the greatest albums of the 90's (certainly in terms of success). For those of us who grew-up in that decade, it will forever form the soundtrack of our lives at that time and indubitably will bring back fond memories. Bush was a great band for a simple reason -- they had great songs which nearly everybody loved.

Here's my album recommendations for those interested in post-grunge rock of the 90's:

Bush - "Sixteen Stone"

Live - "Throwing Copper"

Collective Soul - "Collective Soul"

Stone Temple Pilots - "Purple"

Candlebox - "Candlebox"

The Offspring - "Smash"

Foo Fighters - "Colour & The Shape"

Everclear - "So Much for the Afterglow"

Our Lady Peace - "Clumsy"

Hum - "You'd Prefer an Astronaut" (includes their one and only hit, "Stars," which is perhaps my favorite song of the 90's)

4.0 out of 5 stars After the dust has settled, I like this CD a lot March 9, 2005
Format:Audio CD
When Bush was really popular, I was not a fan. I let my bias interfere with my enjoyment of their music.

I'll get the negative stuff out of the way.

When I first heard singles on the radio in 1995 from Bush, I really hated them. So I can understand why people do not like this band. I'll state the obvious: they are totally unoriginal. They were/are Nirvana clones and just jumped on the grunge bandwagon. Pretty/pinup boy Gavin Rossdale's poor me/torctured lyrics sound contrived and calculated; just waiting to be eaten up by a nation of high school kids. In short, Bush was the Bon Jovi of the grunge/alternative movement. They were trend-followers. If Bush had come out in 1988, they would have had teased hair and played hair-metal.

Having said that, ten years after the fact, I find myself quite fond of this album. About a year ago, I stopped in at a used CD shop and bought this album out of nostalgia, as I had never owned a copy during Bush's heyday. I put it in my discman and was transported back in time; it was 1995, I was still in High School, Bill Clinton was still the President, and I had never heard of Creed or Limp Bizkit.

When I listen to "Sixteen Stone" now, I find that this is actually a very good album. It's a modern rock classic. Sure it's contrived and unoriginal, but the songs themselves are excellent. From the opener "Everything Zen" to the closing "x-girlfriend" there really aren't any bad songs. This album contains some of the very best radio-singles from 90's rock. "Everything Zen," "Little Things" and "Glycerine" are some of the most memorable songs from that era. The entire album is well crafted and written. Every song has a good hook and grove.

4.0 out of 5 stars The one album wonders.....(4.5 stars) August 5, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This album is such an enigma because of how amazing it is and how horrible everything is that Bush made after it. This band ended really ended up being the "one album wonders" and they had a few decent songs afterward but clearly were never able to recapture the magic.
Pretty much every song here is a winner. From the opening of Everythig Zen you know that this will be a kick [butt] record meant to be played LOUD. Little Things turned out to be a bonified radio hit that became a sing along anthem of high schools preppies not hardcore enough to listen to punk (myself included). The song stil holds up today. Comedown is a telling song about the addictions of drugs and is beautifully written. Machinhead is my favorite song on the record. A fast paced heart stopper that is relentless until the very last note. Glycerine was overplayed on the radio but it is great to come back to 7 years later and is still pretty. Alien is an underatted closer that really was the perfect way to bring you down. I really liked the song order of this album, it does a great job of pulling you in, getting you revved up and then bringing you down.
Consequently I saw the band on thier first headlining tour with No Doubt of opening. It was around 95 and they only had this album. They ended up playing extremely long versions of every song and just blew the roof of the place. They ended the concert with a ten minute version of REM's This One Goes Out To The One I Love and it really kicked!
Bottom Line: People unfamiliar with this album but like newer Bush stuff or bands like Staind, and Incubus should check this out. This was the Ten and Nevermind of the mid 90's.
