Sixteen Stone is without a doubt Bush's best work, and was a deservedly huge sucess in America, and criminally overlooked in the UK. It also was compared by critics rather unfavorably with Nirvana, many critics went as far as to dub them "Nirvana Lite". This is more than a little unfair - they do sound like Nirvana (but then so do a lot of bands), but more polished, but to call them rip-offs is way of the mark (did you ever hear a Nirvana record with slide guitar on it?), and to call them "lite" is being churlish - this band rocks, and rocks hard. If you're a fan of grunge, or any of the post-grunge music that followed, you really should forget the critics and check this out. The highlights of this album include "Everything Zen", "Machinehead", "Little Things", "Comedown" and the beautiful "Glycerine".
