Let's get it out of the way first; without Nirvana, Bush wouldn't have existed. There. I said it. Now you can enjoy this album for all it should be. See, those comparisons to Kurt Cobain & co absolutely dogged Bush throughout the early part of their career and the truth is this band actually released some top rock material in their own right. This, their debut album, is an absolutely great post grunge rock LP.

Think "In Utero", then replace Kurt Cobain's loathing for fame with Gavin Rossdale's semi wanting fame but semi not wanting to deal with everything he knows will (and did) come with it, and you'll be on the right track.

Standout tracks on this lp include Everything Zen (with a cracking verse and chorus), the sublime Comedown (and acoustic version is even better) as well as the awe-inspiring Glycerine, which the band really turned into a centerpiece during live shows. Glycerine is among the best songs of the nineties and Bush at their best.

Then we get two unexpected highlights. Machinehead, which features arguably the catchiest chorus this side of Nevermind, and the incredible Little Things. Not incredible for it's riffs (Everything Zen is undoubtedly superior here) but rather incredible for it's lyrics. That's right, pretty boy Gaving Rossdale can actually write fantastic lyrics.

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".

Sixteen Stone is unlike any work of any other artists and contains some of the bands' best material, eg. Glycerine, Little Things, Everything Zen. This debut album is a real "ice-breaker", introducing Gavin's harsh, rough, but precise voice. In my opinion, this album is far more fulfilling to listen to than the later albums "Razorblade Suitcase" and "The Science of Things". These two albums carried the band forward to the recent release of "Golden State" which equals the quality of Sixteen Stone. However, it doesn't capture the 'Grunge' sound that influenced the first album.

One of my most played CDs. Many of the songs sound a lot like what you would expect Nirvana to be churning out now if they were still about. In this their first UK released CD, Gavin has a lot to say and a great voice to say it with. Personal favourites are Little Things, Everthing Zen and Comedown (accoustic version of this is worth a listen too!) Listen out for Winston, Gavin Rossdale's dog at the beginning of Bone Driven!
One of the 90's best bands and albums.

A generally unsung band who have delivered a solid album here for fans of the Grunge era.
Unfortunately Sixteen Stone was generally unheralded in its time but stacks up well compared to other similar bands such as Reef, Silverchair and even Nirvana.
For £4 you can't go wrong and the songs grow on you after a few listens.
It is a good 'earther' to tune into once you get sick of listening to the more cheese fed pop rock around at the moment.

This to me is a classic, it has class start to finish. enters with the powerful 'everything zen', which is a great intro to the feel of the cd. other favourites include 'little things', 'comedown', 'machinehead' and the soulful 'glycerine'. this is a seriously additive cd and one that matures; the more u listen the more u like. ive had it for over 2 years, and its stil growing on me.

Bush came along towards the end of the 'Grunge' era and perhaps this was to their benefit. If they had been around towards the start of this fictitious era then maybe they wouldn't have had the success that they did have. Of course, thats not to say that they are a bad band, certainly not, Sixteen Stone is a very good debut album. From the opener 'Everything Zen' with it's screaching guitar intro to the more reflective sounding 'Glycerine', this album is full of guitar riffage and a strangely intense vocal style from Rossdale. Saying that, it's not a revolutionary album either, it's quite one-dimensional and the song writing itself isn't particularly great. Still, it serves its purpose, to keep you tapping your foot for an hour or so. I'd give this 3.5 stars if I could, but I can't.
