On the first listen it seems a far cry from the raw, heavy guitar based drive of 'Razorblade Suitcase', a generally more synthesised sound. Not that this is a bad thing, rather, progressive and a more polished end result. The album builds up through 'Warm Machine' and 'The Chemicals between us' to one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard, 'Letting the Cables Sleep'. A powerful ballad that perfectly suits Gavin Rossdale's gentle grunge vocals, backed up by a full string section.
A wonderful album, not quite as instant as other Bush offerings, but definitely a good addition to any CD collection.

This 2014 remaster of Bush's 3rd album will litrally blow the cobwebs off anything in the room.

The sound is a 'booming' improvement on the original, and rightly so as audio technology has come a long way since those days. I listened to this LOUDLY through expensive headphones, and it made my veins flow!
Big thumbs up to the boys for getting this remastered, along with the 1st and 2nd studio albums. A real quality job.

Now, for the artwork. This REALLY lets these packages down. They are basically scanned and reprinted documents, but incredibly blurry, and you can see where the original booklets were folded during the scanning process. If you still own the original CD releases, then keep your booklets!

When I think about Bush during my everyday life, I really don't know why I like them. They're hardily innovative and quite frankly, they're totally middle of the road. Still, listening to them there is something about them that appeals to me. I do think Rossdale has a great (even if a little one-dimensional) voice and they do write melodic yet reasonably heavy songs. 'Warm Machine' and 'The Chemicals Between Us' are both very strong tracks, 'Letting The Cables Sleep' is the mellow reflective one and these three are the standout tracks. Theres nothing here that hasn't been done a thousand times before, but that dosn't matter, Bush are great in their unoriginality.

After the relative disappointment of 'Deconstructed', the noticably crap remix album, Bush have teamed up with the producers of their first album. This means they have moved away from the horrible raw sound of the "overrated-Steve-Albini" 'Razorblade Suitcase', added a more mature sound and come out all the better for it. Songs like first single "The Chemicals Between Us" are fantastic, especially with its pseudo techno drums. 'Space Travel', a duet with Gwen Stefani of No Doubt is brilliant but the standout track for me has to be 'Letting The Cables Sleep'. It has a wonderful piano and guitar structure, with the swooping dynamics that Bush do better than any reviewer gives them credit for (as showcased on songs like 'Glycerine' and 'Alien') which show how far away they've moved from the grunge template they followed to begin with. Not that they ever deserved the Nirvana-lite tag. Could you imagine Kurt Cobain writing a song like "Everything Zen" off the first album? Neither can I. If you want to make a Nirvana comparison, here it is - this album deserves as much acclaim and success as the mighty "Nevermind". Happy now? This deserves to be their most successful album yet. And it definitely deserves to be the BIG British rock album of the next year or so. Bush have finally lived up to their reputation as our biggest rock export. Let's support them! Six out of five.

I find it sad that after the storming Sixteen stone, the band slipped so far with deconstructed and Razorblade suitcase. Razorblade suitcase did have a faint echo of the original Bush but sadly not enough to rank the album along with Sixteen stone. I can only assume that the band is not improving with age and experiance, although the live gigs are spectacular. This extension of Razorblade suitcase is unfortunately another dissapointment from a band who produced some of the greatest songs of their time ( Glycerine, Little things, Machinehead etc.). I hope they can refuel their awesome grunge/rock capabilities and delight by releasing some more amazing albums and not the current dross.

What can you say about Bush? The British band the British love to hate. The grunge band that inherited Nirvana's slightly tarnished crown and took angst to the masses. Good-looking, cool, grungey in a clean way, Gavin was always gonna be a target for the media. Good and bad. This, their difficult third album, sees the band abandon their pure rock roots and experiment with electronics and samples and the like. Most of it works. And when it does, it's glorious. Some of it doesn't. And when it doesn't, it's godawful. If you're looking to get into this band, don't start here. It's one you'll only really appreciate after repeatedly listening to their classic debut, Sixteen Stone, or their follow-up, Razorblade Suitcase. Try those first, then you may be ready for this. Or, alternatively, skip this altogether and move onto their brilliant new album, Golden State.

As far as most reviewers are concerned Bush are just Pearl Jam or Nirvana wanabees. Hello?!!! They sound nothing like them! Bush are a great band who have produced music which is consistantly different. This album incorporates more of a "synth" element to it, but this just adds greater depth to the music. Don't expect a completely new offering from Bush, in some ways this is part 2 to "Razorblade Suitcase". But what a part 2!
Go buy and enjoy one of Britains finest Rock bands.

The Nirvana Lite tag is unjustified. This album is excellent - standout tracks include 'The chemicals between us' and 'Prizefighter' and the album as whole really rocks. They may have come from a grunge background but I don't think their music fits there now - listen to '40 Miles from the Sun' Turn this up loud and enjoy the ride Health Warning: Driving to this album could loose you your license !!

This album is excellent and a must have for any grunge or rock fans. It proves the Nirvana tag is unjustified and reinforces Bush as an excellent rock group. The songs Warm machine and "the disease of the dancing cats" are really rockin tunes while the more mellow "letting the cables sleep" highlights their diversity. A must have album. Rock On!
