Album Description
Wanderlust is the debut solo album by Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale released by Interscope Records in June 2008. It is his first LP since Institute's Distort Yourself in 2005. The lead single "Love Remains The Same" was released digitally on April 1, 2008. The album was produced by Bob Rock and finds Rossdale collaborating with drummer Josh Freese, guitarist Chris Traynor (also formerly of Bush), bassist Paul Bushnell and keyboardist Jamie Muhoberac. Gavin was the lead singer/songwriter for the UK post-grunge rock band Bush. Their first album, Sixteen Stone (1994), was a huge commercial success. Almost overnight, Bush went from playing small pubs in London to headlining arenas in the US, the result of extensive, non-stop touring. Fast forward to 2008, married with children with Gwen Stefani of No Doubt fame.

Gavin Grows Up

"Reading the reviews, it strikes me that a lot of people are disappointed that this album isn't more like Distort Yourself (by Institute, Gavin's fleeting band of almost 3 years ago), however that album was not terribly popular, as is shown in its very low sales, so the comments are surprising.
Most of us mid 90's grunge lovers who hung on Bush's every word have a more mature outlook on life now, over ten years later, and Gavin Rossdale has grown right along with us.
Not Bush, not even similar in sound, this album is more melodious and heartfelt. It's deep and soulful, the lyrics are meaningful and the gravelly sexy voice combined with Rossdales upper class English accent just hits the nail on the head.
Don't put this on if you are having a freshman dorm room party but instead enjoy it over dinner with a glass of wine and mellow conversation."

"A Bush CD this is not, but I don't think that was the intent. What this is is an honest, thought-provoking and beautiful solo effort by an artist who seems to have poured his soul and life experiences into this project. When I heard the CD for the first time a few days ago, it got under my skin and I haven't been able to stop listening. "Can't Stop the World", "Forever May You Run" and "Love Remains the Same" are a few of the songs that grabbed me right away. There are a couple of songs towards the end of the CD (like "If You're Not with us You are Against us") that I don't enjoy as much and that don't quite seem to fit with the rest of the music, but altogether this is a great album. If you love classic Peter Gabriel, Sarah McLachlan, etc., you may just find yourself drawn into Wanderlust."
I was on the fence...

"People had me so worried about buying this album....and I worried for nothing. I've always been a pretty big Bush fan, and I thought Institute's Distort Yourself was a great record. This is different, but not necessarily bad. I had the first track, "Can't Stop the World," for months before Wanderlust came out. That song has been stuck in my head ever since. This album has slow songs, rockin' songs, and many songs with elements of both. The people who strictly like songs like "Little things", "Machine Head", "Bulletproof Skin" etc, you may not like this album. I personally think 8,9, and 10 have great energy. I may be the minority in this, but I also liked a lot of Bush/Institute's slower material : "Letting the Cables Sleep", "Straight No Chaser", "Ambulances", "Out of this World" etc. This album has some great songs in that category. Gavin's vocals are fantastic on this record. I think every album he has been apart of has its place for his fans. If I want to destroy something I'll pop in Sixteen Stone or Distort Yourself...I find Razorblade Suitcase so atmospheric...Science of Things had so many great songs and sounded other worldly at times, and I really liked Golden State. I thought that album was seriously underrated. If I want to kick back and sing some great songs then Wanderlust will definitely fill my need. I only give this album four stars because there are one or two tracks I didn't care for, but that is normal for me.
