Music Review: Bush – The Sea Of Memories (2011)

It’s Bob Rock ruining things for the band trying hard to make a worthy comeback by making The Sea Of Memories sound way too radio friendly. For all that Sixteen Stone had to offer, I was taken by the restraint of the-not-very-liked Razorblade Suitcase (what is it with me and sophomore albums). The Sea Of Memories is far less imposing than I expected it to be – nowhere near the dark angst of Cold Contagious, no chord progressions that make me nod my head in agreement, the guitar feedback too weak to make me want more despite being unmistakably Bush, even though they have a new guitarist. And it’s a delight to hear Gavin Rossdale’s voice after so long, but I liked it better when he was brooding and incoherent. Songs that remain with me after a few listens would be so much better, but for now I’m just grateful Bush isn’t letting the cables sleep.
