Format: Audio CD
Following the slightly iffy meanderings of ... Last Chance Saloon, Science & Nature finds the Bluetones back doing what they do best - mixing pop rock listenability with smart lyrics, catchy tunes and just a pinch of heavier guitar strumming to dampen the sweetness of Mark Morris' sugary voice. There's clearly some slick production gone into many of the tunes here, and old and new vibes are fused fairly seamlessly into a competent whole. The result is a varied, splendidly entertaining CD that would benefit even more from having a bit more vigour to stir up some of the calmer tracks. Nevertheless, it's high quality stuff, and deserved to be plugged more than it was at the time of release.

I don't own any other Bluetones albums, and only know a handful of songs which aren't on this album, so I can't compare it to other stuff. All I can do is tell you about this album, and it's pretty damned good.
Two of the singles, Keep The Home Fires Burning and Autophilia, are still my favourite tracks, but throughout the album Mark Morriss' distictive vocals soar out in melody driven music which is generally delightful on the ears. It's hard not to like Last Of The Great Navigators and Tiger Lilly, and the closing Emily's Pine is beautiful.
This is one of those albums you get that you can't really fault. There are no 'bad' tracks on it, only ones that are 'less good' than the best ones. And so I would recommend it to you. It's hard to think of comparable artists, as The Bluetones have a distinctive sound (perhaps mostly due to their singer's voice), and this album sticks in my mind so much as an invdividual record.

What an album! I bought a copy before Xmas from market place for £3!!!!! I haven't stopped listening to it yet!
I had first seen the 'tones live in '97 and they were great! They simply are the most underrated band of our time. For those in any doubt get this album or go see them live!

Far more laid back that last chance saloon and more varied than expecting to fly, science and nature is a little eclectic. The title was meant to reflect the nature of the songs and it is pretty apt too. The iopening song is pretty straight forward pop, not a classic but a decent song none the less. the first single released from the album was keep the home fires burning, which may account for the albums lack of sales, it is an ok song but not a classic. Autophilia is a great pop track as is mudslide. Emilys pine and slack jaw are great closers, while ]tiger lily and last great naigator are just class.

I've owned this CD for a few months now and absolutely love it. It is a very impressive collection of songs - each different but still forming a very distinctive sound. Each has a lovely rolling style, each is very accessible and each is performed by a band seemingly at the top of their game. The vocals are exquisite, the guitar work typically creative of that Bluetones/Charlatans style. Personal favourites: Last of the Great Navigators; Basement Song and the brilliant Emily's Pine. Highly recommended and a great example of classic British indie/pop.

This album is incredible. After the poor response given to the bands Western-Inspired 2nd album 'Return to the Last Chance Saloon', 'Science and Nature' sees the band return to their melodic roots. Lyrically and musically it is exceptional and right from the start of the album, The Bluetones show off their versitility. The opening track, 'Zorrro', is the heaviest (with possibly the exception of the instrumental 'Blood Bubble') and is reminicent of early Manics (only better and more uplifting!). Through the progression of the next ten songs, the Bluetones show that they can Rock, Roll, Swagger and Swing, whilst still retaining their indie credibility. Of the two import only bonus tracks, 'It's A Boy' with its 'Chaz ands Dave'esque piano and harmonies is the most impressive and is well worth paying the extra money for. The singles 'Keep the Homefires Burning', 'Autophilia' amd 'Mudslide' are all included and make 'Science and Nature' a Must-Have for any Bluetones, nay, Indie/Rock/Pop fan. There are songs to make you laugh, songs to make you cry and songs for when you just feel the urge to rock-out. Trust me, you'll be very, very impressed.
