    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 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.

    I heard a song byBUSH called "Swalowed" and I loved it, but now I regret buying this album, too ordinary for me, this is not my style anymore.

  1. Gavin Rossdale's delicious rasp is still unequivocally sexy, but his melodies are rote versions of the same old song.
  2. 'Golden State' is easily the band's most accomplished record and should stand as one of the best British rock albums of 2001.
  3. Another sturdy set of radio-ready rock. [26 Oct 2001, p.124]
