  • Many good rock stations still often play selections from this smashing album that first of all features a group of very good musicians. Of course they don’t sound like Nirvana, the lyrics tend to be more edgy and music way heavier, if less controversial for the time. I bought it in 1995, very soon after it came out and I am still impressed with the album’s longevity. I think this is because their music speaks to you, not only through poetic brooding expressiveness of lyrics in “Comedown” and “Swim” but also through powerful arrangements of “Little Things” and “Machine Head”. By no means is Bush a head-banging fare; they are a thinking man’s rock group, so to speak. Their subsequent releases featured some great songs, such as “Greedy Fly” or “Chemicals Between Us” but somehow the mood of poetic desperation has diminished. This album is definitely one of the best things that the 90s had to offer, particularly the beautiful dreamy “Comedown”, possibly the band’s best song. The record company graciously included a booklet that contains all the lyrics and a picture of the band.
