  • After hearing Comedown on the radio back in ‘94, I was an immediate fan of Bush and bought their debut album, Sixteen Stone, shortly after it was released. Eight years later, it’s still my favorite Bush CD. Although they’ve put out a few others since then, Sixteen Stone far surpasses their newer stuff. I doubt I’ll ever get sick of this CD. Six reasons why: Everything Zen (#1), Little Things (#4, reminiscent of Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit), Comedown (#5, which is still one of my favorite all-time songs; love the bass on this one), Machinehead (#7), Monkey (#9), and Alien (#11, I prefer this ballad over Glycerine, basically because Glycerine was being overplayed on the radio at the time).If you’re a Bush fan (or just a fan of alternative music), then you should definitely pick this one up. You won’t be disappointed; there’s something for everyone: high-energy songs like Everything Zen, Little Things, Machinehead, and X-Girlfriend (a mere 45 seconds long; tough lyrics too ;) , as well as softer, moodier ones like Bomb, Comedown, Alien, and Glycerine (Gavin Rossdale’s solo song that most chics seem to love; hmm, I wonder why? ;) .
