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

Alongside Foo Fighters and the youthful Irish four-piece Ash, Bush are now grunge's standard-bearers. And, although the U.K. quartet may be critically derided, they didn't get to sell more than 15 million copies of their previous records 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

like another reviewer has said, this album is not nearly as bad as some people are saying. the intensity of gavin rossdale's songwriting and singing as well as the rest of the band in playing, is incredible.
the only objections i have to this entire cd are 'dead meat' and 'mindchanger', both which i skip rather than play through.
the diversity on this record are incredible, 'letting the cables sleep' showing an amazing lull in guitars, 'the chemicals between us' blaring out loudly in every way, 'disease of the dancing cats' showing the band's membership in peta is not just lip service, and 'spacetravel' showing us a very different version of gavin's girlfriend, lead singer of no doubt gwen steffani.
i think that the best song on this cd is 'jesus online' because of the way it starts out sounding very hollow and boring, but eventually gains the momentum and guitars that bush is famous for. i also like 'prizefighter' (because 'the best is yet to come'!) and '40 miles from the sun' (another song that is slow with less noise).
something must really be wrong here, because this is one of my favorite cds of all time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! Bush shine like never before! November 21, 1999
Format:Audio CD
"The Science of Things" is not an instant Bush classic. It doesn't have any megahits like "Comedown" or "Swallowed". But it is the best Bush album to date. It just might not seem that way on a single glance. It grows on you. After 1, 2, or even 3 listenings you still might not like it as much as their previous albums. But listen to it at least 4 times before you make an educated judgement. "Sixteen Stone" was awesome (despite it's few weak factors) and "Razorblade Suitcase" was really good (despite it's weak factors). I'm not even going to mention "Deconstructed" because I hated that album so much. But "The Science of Things" takes the cake. Gavin had a great idea to get away from the city and take a vacation in the countryside to write these songs. If he hadn't of, the songs probably wouldn't be as relaxed and refreshing as they are now. That's the thing I love about it. It's relaxed and renewed feeling. "Sixteen Stone" and "Razorblade Suitcase" to me felt like the songs were written on the edge of Gavin's seat. Some of them seemed a bit forced. On "The Science of Things", Gavin seems more relaxed and not pressured to write good songs. He wrote good songs by just letting them flow out. Even though it's not quite flawless, "The Science of Things" rocks!

4.0 out of 5 stars Bush Finally Stands on Their Own Merits February 28, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Don't get me wrong here people, this isn't an earth-shattering album, but it's Bush's best. It also makes clear that Bush can make some original music on their own. The two slower ballads ("40 Miles from the Sun" and "Letting the Cables Sleep") are the milestones of this LP. Despite the techno influences that Gavin Rossdale embraces on The Science of Things, they never dominate the songs, they only enhance them. He also tries (too hard at times) to be political. He takes on political themes on "Disease of the Dancing Cats," "Spacetravel," and "English Fire." He also seems disgusted with humankind's ever-increasing reliance on technology on tracks like "Jesus Online." Bush's trademark crunch and hooks are still intact on this album, most notably on "Prizefighter" and "Warm Machine." Bush also explores new creative territory. The new electronic elements give Bush a fuller, more realized sound. "Altered States" makes the best use of the electronics. Gwen Stefani of No Doubt guests on "Spacetravel." "The Disease of the Dancing Cats" is probably the hardest song they've ever recorded. At times. Rossdale's political rants are a little hard to swallow, and there is a slight feeling of familarity, but overall, Bush has a tightly solid album here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bush Develops and Amazes... Again November 29, 1999
By Abbey
Format:Audio CD
What can i say? Yet another fantastic album from Bush! Even ill-intentioned critics from publicatins that pride themselves on "despising" the band have reluctantly admitted what a developed, original, mature, and talented rock band Bush have proved (once again) that they are in this new release, The Science of Things. Gavin Rossdale's songwriting has blossomed more than one would imagine it could from album to album, providing not only love/relationship songs, but political commentaries, technological quirks, and communication issues to name a few. Aside from lyrics, Bush has also shown much development in instrumental and song-structural abilities. The hookiest of all guitar hooks being "Warm Machine", the ballsy excursion into experimental formats and the less commonly accepted formula for pop/rock hits in "English Fire", a chorus that makes you long for rock-stardom so that you can join in on "Prizefighter" and verses that do the same on "Disease of the Dancing Cats." But of course, what Bush album would be complete without contradiction and contrast and the massive dynamics of humanity: love and hate, loud and soft, romantic yet angry, helpful yet vengeful, powerful yet bruised. These dynamics are prominent in songs like "Dead Meat", "Mindchanger", and "Jesus Online." Beautiful ballads grace the album in the form of "40 Miles from the Sun" and the moving "Letting the Cables Sleep. Read more ›

Bush still retains much of their old sound with this album. But I feel it is overshadowed by their previous two albums.
