Sixteen Stone

Sixteen Stone is a grunge album released by Bush in 1994 (see 1994 in music). Though the album was extremely popular, Bush was never able to escape comparisons of being a watered-down Nirvana or Pearl Jam. Gavin Rossdale and the other band members were technically accomplished musicians but were too late to catch on in the first wave of grunge music. A review in the Toronto Sun claims "The trouble with the rapid rise of any genre is that said genre will invariably be codified, its essence cynically reduced to a series of stylistic tics - a guitar sound here, a strategically ripped piece of clothing there - all easily reproducible, and all entirely beside the point."

On the Billboard Music Charts (North America), Sixteen Stone peaked at #4 on the Heatseekers and Billboard 200 charts.
