Synopsis

Amazon.com
Gavin Rossdale may try his best to sound like Kurt Cobain, and his British band may strum and bang Seattle-style, and Steve Albini may produce like he never left the alterna-grunge basement, but the songs here are pure pop for now people--now being Grunge-mania 1996. The lyrics always loop around in disjunctive fits and Albini ensures the band stops and starts in discomforting style but deep down Rossdale has his radio tuned to the FM-radio hits of yesteryear. "Swallowed" is the obvious single but "History," "Greedy Fly," and others have a sugary side that's pure ear candy underneath the harsh wailings. --Rob O'Connor

Not just Bush's best album, a great and overlooked post-grun
Matthew Mcnamara | NJ, USA | 07/01/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Lately I've been going through a lot of the 90's stuff in my collection, and started listening to Bush again in a fit of nostalgia. Very radio-friendly, forgettable stuff if I can be honest. I don't anticipate again dusting off Sixteen Stone for a long time, or even Golden State.

But Razorblade Suitcase... this album does not sound like typical Bush (aside from the radio single "Swallowed").

I've come to consider Razorblade Suitcase as not just Bush's best album, but a great 90's album that showcases what post-grunge could've been.

Razorblade Suitcase never reached the popularity of Sixteen Stone so, sadly, all successive material played it safer. Nothing ventured, nothing gained."
