Can it really have been a mere five years since Bush made a huge splash on this side of the pond with "Sixteen Stone?" It feels as if the multi-platinum quartet has been around forever. Maybe that's only because it's so often grouped, rightly or not, with groundbreaking bands that carved their own paths well before Bush appeared on the scene: the Pixies, Nick Cave's Birthday Party, Nirvana (of course).

The Brit band's melodic, emotive, grunge-inflected rock has continued to evolve, keeping millions of loyal fans around the globe happy as hell. Yet more than a few critics still dismiss Bush as a pretender to the throne. Paradoxically, what has always been most refreshing and disarming about Robin Goodridge (drums)... is how readily they acknowledge their debt to their sonic forerunners while always pursuing a course that is, in the end, unquestionably their own.
