Golden State

Genre: Rock; Producer (group): Atlantic

While the best tracks on Bush’s fourth album (the plaintive ”The People That We Love” and the buzz-riffed ”Headful of Ghosts”) may not be as grabby as past hits ”Everything Zen” and ”Glycerine,” the blustery Brits deliver another sturdy set of radio-ready rock. And compared with the meathead nu-metal set, the band’s quasi-grunge actually sounds alternative – something that couldn’t be said while the likes of Nirvana were still kicking. Chalk it up to Gavin Rossdale’s sexily strained vocals, and lyrics that reach beyond me-against-the-world rock cliches.
