Gavin Rossdale - Wanderlust - CD Review

It's been a while since the good old days of Bush jamming out some great tunes. Since then Gavin Rossdale has formed another band, Institute in 2005 and put out a cd called Distort Yourself. He's married to Gwen Stefani from No Doubt and of course a successful solo artist.

I have to say the Bush years are still the best ones out there. I remember seeing Bush back when Sixteen Stone just came out. They were an electrifying band and really had it together. I really thought we would see them take off into big things.

Rossdale's new cd is really good. Can't Stop the World is a good start really showing the typical Rossdale vocal, going from mellow to kicking in to a good beat. From there you have a mix of tunes on this one. Some Rockin', Some Ballads, but overall a really good sound and it's good to hear him putting out new music.

This album was produced by Bob Rock and has Rossdale working with drummer Josh Freese, guitarist Chris Traynor (also formerly of Bush), bassist Paul Bushnell and keyboardist Jamie Muhoberac.

For updates on his tour and other news, go to he's doing some Mid-West dates in the US in July and maybe we will see that expanding a little.

Track Listing:

1. Can't Stop The World
2. Frontline
3. Forever May You Run
4. The Skin I'm In
5. Drive
6. Future World
7. Love Remains The Same
