  1. Sadly, nothing about the unspectacular Golden State will save them from the Where Are They Now? file.

    This album may be bush's worst, but it is still a great album.

    ugh - this album is awful, I loved THE SCIENCE OF THINGS it was an incredible album, it sounded unlike anything they'd ever done and sadly was their last great musical statement, this album is sooooo clich'ed. And what even sadder is that INSTITUTE are now finished and GAVIN ROSSDALE (leadman) could now be done. Perhaps he should of asked anyone if the songs off the last two records were actually any good.
