I was definately impresses and blown away by Bush's 1996 album, Razorblade suitcase. To start things off, I thought the guitars on this album were more than excellent. Very crunchy, "grunge-like" guitar work from Gavin Rossdale and Nigel Pulsford. Bass lines were really good as well. Dave Parsons held it together and put some good bass lines in between songs. Robin Goodridge is one of my favorite alternative drummers he is amazing what he can do. The sound quality on this album is really good and if you hate the song writing you will love the sound.

I like Gavin's songwriting as well as his vocals on Razorblade Suitcase. Very thorough songwrting and I think Gavin puts his heart in his music and I think his lyrics would be exhibit A. You can feel he is felling when you hear him sing. I was overall impressed with his songwriting.
Overall Impression — 8
I was without a shadow of doubt more than pleased with this album. This is definately one of Bush's best, if not, their best. I enjoyed the songs, "Greedy Fly", "Swallowed", and "Mouth" the most and if you get this album I think you should give those particular songs a listen. If I lost it I would more than likely buy it again just for the simple reason I love Bush. So go check it out.
