"The Science of Things" (Interscope; 1999)

Reviewed by Paco

Bush's second album, "The Science of Things" is a well-crafted collection of twelve power-pop/ grunge-lite tunes. The songs all feature Gavin's angst-ridden vocals, heavy guitar and, occasionally, a couple of violins and some cello. 

Although Gavin and company offer no real surprises on this disc, if you liked the first Bush album, then you'll like this one.

The album's first single, "The Chemicals Between Us," is an excellent example of the what the rest of the album sounds like. Of the twelve songs on the disc, probably half of them are destined to be singles over the next year or so.

This disc plays well with others. Stick it in your CD changer on random play and whenever the Bush disc is in, you'll always get a decent song. 

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
