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

1.0 out of 5 stars If you're a loyal Bush fan like myself.... 18 Nov 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
...please don't make my mistake and search for a review of this item before you buy it. I am a long-standing Bush fan and bought all their albums before cautiously turning my attention to Deconstructed. Being a fan of other dance/rock hashes, I was hopeful that this might work.
It didn't/doesn't.
I can understand how hardcore dance fans might like it, but to anyone who can call themselves a Bush fan, its sacrilage of decent British rock. Its a basic case of letting a bunch of DJs (whom one might call dance experts) loose on a rock band. It just doesn't work. They'ev just put loads of beats and synthesised sounds on an album and then justified it by having Gavin's voice singing: 'Swallowed....swallowed....' over the top. I can't believe I found it in the Rock section of my local HMV!. I had it promptly returned to the store and subjected the poor, innocent till operator to a lecture on how it definitely wasn't rock. OK, I might have seen it coming with a list of DJs on the back of the case, but I've seen other dance/rock dos that really do sound good. But this really is just 99% sub-standard dance with 1% husky voice that with a little imagination might just be Gavin's.
So, I've you're a hard dance fan, you might go out on a limb and try this. However, if you're a Bush fan, stay away unless you become twisted with resentment like myself.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not for me... 2 April 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I like Bush. They've done some really good stuff. This isn't included in that though.

This is dancified tripe. And I know dancified isn't a real word but then Deconstructed isn't a real Bush album either.

4.0 out of 5 stars Remix albums can work! 11 Aug 2002
By Ben Saunders VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Bush, not to be confused with Kate Bush (though often confused by music searches!) must be Britain's biggest export no one's ever heard of. In the late-to-post grunge years their re-hash of Nirvana saw them conquer America, their debut 'Sixteen Stone' becoming one of the twenty top selling British albums of the 1990s and follow up 'Razorblade Suitcase' topping the US chart (and notching up a top 5 over here I believe).
One leading criticism was always that they were pretty much the same, unoriginal and unexciting. Third album, 'The Science of Things', though not their best, possibly put that right - incorporating a surprising variety of styles and electronic influences (most notable on first single, 'The chemicals Between Us'). The approach has already been hinted out, however, by the 1997 stop-gap release of 'Deconstructed', a remix album of songs from Bush's first two albums (plus one cover).
Not everything works, and 'Swallowed', while not bad, doesn't live up to the original. At times, this sounds rather like just putting Gavin's vocal samples over fast and dirty dance beats and loops. A rather 'by numbers dance remix' that demonstrates what so many people dislike about remix albums (and I know a few that don't like this).
To my mind, however, that's more than made up for by the hits that do work. 'Bonedriven' is one of the highlights - Mekon's beats really great and transforming the song significantly, with Gavin's 'b-b-b-bonedriven' over the top. I've already admitted difficulty in writing about dance music (an understatement), but this song gets the mix just right trust me. Closer 'In A Lonely Place' (a New Order cover) is also notable for being a darkly menacing track, as you might expect with Tricky at the controls.

5.0 out of 5 stars A drum and bass x-travaganza 8 Jun 2000
By A Customer
This is the amazing bassed up version of an already great set of tracks. Swallow, Mouth and Insect kin, are probably the most ear beating tracks, with a great d+b section in Insect Kin. This is a must buy for all Bush loverz

5.0 out of 5 stars Bush's Third Release: Electronica Remixes 10 Oct 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I think I'm probably in the minority of Bush fans that actually liked this remix album; but then, I like both alternative/grunge rock and electronica. Most of the songs on "Deconstructed" are taken from their sophomore CD, "Razorblade Suitcase," except tracks #1, 9, 10 (all from "Sixteen Stone"), and #11 (which can be heard elsewhere on "The Crow: City of Angels" soundtrack). The remixes are all energetic, save for the moody last track, "In A Lonely Place (Tricky Mix)," which is a nice wrap-up song.
Some of the remixes don't include all the lyrics, just samples, as heard in #10: "Everything Zen (Derek DeLarge Mix)." There's a second shorter version of this song on track #1 (The Lhasa Fever Mix), which I prefer over #10.
The songs I particularly enjoyed were the creepy drum and bass remix of #3: "Swallowed (Goldie/Toasted Both Sides Please Mix)," #8: "Insect Kin (Jack Dangers/Drum and Bees Mix)"--which is almost unrecognizable from the original--plus #2: "Mouth (The Stingray Mix)," which is the best remix on here, hands down, and can also be heard on the "An American Werewolf in Paris" soundtrack.
I liked the majority of songs on here, but if I had to choose, my least favorite would probably have to be #9: "Comedown (Lunatic Calm Mix)." The original version is my all-time favorite Bush song, and this remix doesn't really do it justice, in my opinion.
While I loved "Deconstructed" (it's one of my faves by Bush), the more diehard alt. rock/Bush fan may want to borrow this CD first before purchasing it. It's not for everybody.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome, some serious techno-talent here 13 Sep 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
HELLO PEOPLE! Ok, all of these people who are critizing bush for there sudden change of style, SHOULD READ THE CD. Bush did NOT write these songs for heaven sakes! Havent you ever heard of remixes before? These various techno artists were asked to remix bush songs so they did. And it's some damn good techno if I do say so myself. So, in refference to the comment below, OF COURSE NOT ALL THE LYRICS ARE USED! That's what a techno remix is! If you don't like techo, fine, I won't get mad if you don't get this CD, but if you do, DEFINITELY. Most importantly, DON'T BLAME BUSH! (geez, where these people born yesterday?)

5.0 out of 5 stars Bush Deconstructed 19 July 2006
By A. K. Blazejowska - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If you like BUSH and ambient/techno sounds then you will like this cd becaue it is a combination of the two. It's very well put together and you won't be able to put this cd away.[Also] There is also a known song in this cd: 'MOUTH'; which some may recognize from the movie American Werewolf in Paris.

5.0 out of 5 stars some helpful hints for this recording 19 Jan 2002
By cystic delusion - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
here are some things to know:
if you like bush only moderately, don't buy this CD.
if you are a traditionalist and are expecting this to be like sixteen stone, don't buy this CD.
if you don't have a cultivated appreciation for electronic music and the essence of taking a work and creating your own expression out of the parts of it, don't buy this CD.
if you're open minded enough though, this is an excellent addition to your music collection. especially good is the Philip Steir mix of "Synapse" by taking the basic guitar line and making it the electronic basis, while mixing up the rhythm structure, he has taken something that is unmistakably bush and made into something totally other and yet wonderful. the much-touted "stingray" mix of "Mouth" is actually Bush's own work, under a pseudonym, which explains why many people feel it is the one song that stays most true to bush's style.
if you find this album intruiging, i suggest you listen to other mixes of bush songs, such as the remix of "letting the cables sleep" by the illuminati.

5.0 out of 5 stars conglomeration ... 4 Dec 2002
By "richlatta" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
or electronic music. But if you can get into trippy electro-sounds, this album is surprisingly good (ignore the typically weak Bush cover art). I like techno versions of good rock music because they often incorporate techno beats with good songwriting and melody that are often lacking in run-of-the-mill techno. Some tracks are better than others, but the good ones elevate the disk. And really, most are great.
As might be expected, most of these versions hardly resemble their original form. This CD is great for the usual occasions you might listen to techno, like working out. Except for the last track which is worth noting: a Joy Division cover produced by none other than Tricky. It's gloomy and mysterious and pretty close to being worth the price of admission alone.
