Sixteen Stone

( 9 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Under the guidance of Clive Langer and Alan Winstanley -- the kings of early-'80s British pop -- Bush turn in an album that follows all the rules and sounds of American hard rock, specifically Nirvana and Pearl Jam. The group's two major hits, "Everything Zen" and "Little Things," are slick, assured professional replications of Nirvana's trademarks, but Bush also have a flair for big hooks and in Gavin Rossdale, a frontman who has movie star charisma, all elements that turn Sixteen Stone into successful pop-grunge.

    Beyond Grunge

    To say that 16 stone is just an imitation of nirvana is underestimating Bush. They were more than just a post-grunge era imitation then and they certainly are now. No one can deny the heavy influence of nirvana and soundgarden but I think Bush adds something to that which is entirely their own. They are sort of grunge gone alternative rock with softer vocals but still a coarse sound. There is a good mix of hard and softer stuff on the album, most noteably glycerine as soft and everything zen little things and machinehead as harder. This is probably Bush's best album although Razorblade suitecase does come very close with a bit of a different sound. Definately worth buying if you like grunge and alternative rock.

    Must be your skin, Im sinking in.....

    This cd has helped me get through some tough situations. When me and my b/f broke up all I would listen to was Glycerine. It then became our song when we got back together. This is a great band and you can tell they arent going to be dying out anytime soon. I wish Gavin and Gwen the best of luck and hope they are happy together...

    One of the best rock albums

    This will definitely be one of the best albums you'll ever own, especially if you're an alternative/ hard rock type or if you like Bush, obviously. All of these songs are genuine, and they definitely aren't the type that sound like they were written just to take up space. A perfect album

    Good Album

    Bush has a really great sound, sometimes a little too polished... but it's all good. Also in some parts it sounds like Gavin is a little too similar to Kurt, he needs to develope more of his own sound.

    Great first CD for Bush

    This is the best Bush CD out there. There are alot of good songs on this CD. Bush is a pure hard rock band that have had great sucess over the years. This is Bushes first CD which makes it suprising that it is that good. Some of the best songs on this CD are ''Everything Zen'', ''Machinehead'', and the best song on the CD ''Little Things''
