“The Science of Things” is not an instant Bush classic. It doesn’t have any megahits like “Comedown” or “Swallowed”. But it is the best Bush album to date. It just might not seem that way on a single glance. It grows on you. After 1, 2, or even 3 listenings you still might not like it as much as their previous albums. But listen to it at least 4 times before you make an educated judgement. “Sixteen Stone” was awesome (despite it’s few weak factors) and “Razorblade Suitcase” was really good (despite it’s weak factors). I’m not even going to mention “Deconstructed” because I hated that album so much. But “The Science of Things” takes the cake. Gavin had a great idea to get away from the city and take a vacation in the countryside to write these songs. If he hadn’t of, the songs probably wouldn’t be as relaxed and refreshing as they are now. That’s the thing I love about it. It’s relaxed and renewed feeling. “Sixteen Stone” and “Razorblade Suitcase” to me felt like the songs were written on the edge of Gavin’s seat. Some of them seemed a bit forced. On “The Science of Things”, Gavin seems more relaxed and not pressured to write good songs. He wrote good songs by just letting them flow out. Even though it’s not quite flawless, “The Science of Things” rocks!
