Product Description

Amazon.ca

Young, aggro, and from Los Angeles--it's tempting to put Incubus in the already crowded category populated by Korn, System of a Down, and their other loud and heavy brethren. But that would sell Incubus short, because Make Yourself, the quintet's sophomore album, is a strong progression beyond their 1997 debut, S.C.I.E.N.C.E.. More like Faith No More than Limp Bizkit, Incubus still have that teen-mosh appeal, though the songwriting and instrumentation on Make Yourself is diverse and thoughtful, both lyrically and musically. "Drive" is an easygoing, slightly trippy acoustic-based outing, while oddball scratching (courtesy of DJ Chris Kilmore) and trip-hop funkiness make "Battlestar Scralatchtica" aptly titled. "Nowhere Fast" is vaguely 311-ish with a reggae tinge and lovely melodic interludes, in contrast to the furious intensity of "Out from Under," which gives Make Yourself a surprisingly cohesive diversity that's hard to categorize. Ultimately, singer Brandon Boyd is not a vocal genius, but lyrically and in performance, he's sensitive, charismatic, and unique. Ditto for the 13 cuts that make up Make Yourself. --Katherine Turman

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good... May 30 2004
Format:Audio CD
Incubus is a wonderful rock band. Maybe one of the best. This is the CD where they scored their first mainstreem pop hit "Drive". It was also #1 on the Alternitive charts. It has some good tracks on here. Brandon Boyd is the leader, and, he has an OK singing voice. Not the best singer ever, tho (duh). No tracks are bad, but, ill tell you why I just gave it a 4 soon. On with the songs!:
1. Privilege (5/5) Could possibly be the best song on the record. This is what im MAD about, tho. Why couldnt this be released as the 1st single?? It sounds like it shouldve. Silly Epic! This wouldve easily got to #1 on any rock chart if it was released!!!! Ah, sorry.
2. Nowhere Fast (5/5) Neat. Brandon is good on it, and, good beat. Pretty soft and hard.
3. Consequence (4/5) A pretty good hard rock ballad. Its half of a ballad, anyway.
4. The Warmth (5/5) OMG!! Listen to Brandon on this! Hes AMAZING! Great ballad!!!
5. When It Comes (4/5) OK.
6. Stellar (5/5) 2nd single. I luv this! A classic. It did well at TRL in 2000.
7. Make Yourself (5/5) OMG!!! Brandon screams! He sounds tight when he does it! He screams bloddy murder! Sometimes on it, anyway. Their is quite some cussing on it, tho.
8. Drive (5/5) Obviously a classic, and, 3rd single. Pretty overplayed, but, it never got that old. Too bad they barley play it anymore, tho. Ill always remember this by heart, tho, even till the day I die!
9. Clean (4/5) Very decent. Not 1 of my favs, tho.
10. Battlestar Scralatchitca (Instrumental) (5/5) Amazing instrumental! Ahh, funky, and, you can relax to it often. There is one weird voice in it, tho.
11. I Miss You (5/5) Cool! Very sad, and, youll love it at first listen. Pretty short, tho.
12. Pardon Me (5/5) 1st single. Classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Same does not equal greatness May 17 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is one of the best Incubus albums and is definite must to own if you enjoy their other works or rock music in general. In response to people not liking this album because it was so different from their other works is downright ridiculous. It is easy for a band like Incubus to stay in their "safe zone" and make music that they know their fans will like...but they went out on a limb and changed their sound a little bit. While edging more towards pop but still miles away on most tracks...Drive being an exception...they made new interesting music that is still totally different from anything on the market. Kudos to them for trying something new and not staying in the same rut... and it works...great lyrics awesome guitar riffs and baselines and just a great sound overall. I will say that S.C.I.E.N.C.E. is still probably my favorite cd and after make yourself it kind of gets a little too close to pure pop, but you should not always expect the same thing and be disappointed when it is different...got to listen to the album for what it is and this is a great album

Having seriously impressed with 1997's "S.C.I.E.N.C.E", Incubus returned with 1999's 'Make Yourself', and the band's grandiose metal riffs, singing/rap lyrical wordplay remain confidently in place. And with the exception of missing the breakbeat tracks from the last release, here is an album with it's sights set in marring a plethora of influences without sacrificing songs. "Privilege" opens with all the surging guitars, clattering drums, rousing electronics and exuberant singing you'd hope for in any metal-hybrid band, but it's in the moments of quiet observation that really define this band from its peers with "When it Comes" downtempo optimism, calling for the listener to 'realise that not everyone in this worlds is cold & untrustworthy'. "Battlestar Scralatchtica" is instrumental white-funk, that would easily find its way onto a 'Red Hot Chilli Peppers' album, and is all the more incredible for a (mostly) metal band showing everyone how its done. If fact the only possibly criticism I could give (and this is more at the band than the album), is that the later (admittedly fantastic albums) stripped back on the genre hopping (especially the breakbeat tracks), and although are more coherent albums, lack some of the wild eclecticism that attracted me to Incubus. Anyways, regardless of my petty nitpicking, this is a Rap-Metal/Alternative Metal crossover album, of some considerable power.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 stars Feb. 7 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
When I first heard this CD i was like 11 and didnt like any type of rock, so Incubus i apologize for not listening to this CD until two years after i got it. But when i gave it another listen i was surprised. This is very diverse, third to System of a Down and Metallica. With hit songs such as Pardon Me, Drive, and Stellar on the radio, Incubus became even more well known. Here are my ratings for their songs.
1 Privilege (B+) A good song with a nice guitar riff and a strong chorus, talking about taking advantage of life.
2 Nowhere Fast (B-) Okay, but not as good as Privilege. Not one of my favorite songs.
3 Consequence (B-) Kind of catchy lyrics. Not very long song.
4 The Warmth (A+)I'm surprised that this song was not on the radio. It has a cool guitar solo in the middle and a nice chorus.
5 When It Comes (B) Once again, kind of a mediocre song, but better than Nowhere Fast.
6 Stellar (B-) A radio hit, but not one of my personal favorites.
7 Make Yourself (B+) Starts out acousticly but develops into a heavy song with a great chorus. Very profane, though, in the verse and bridge.
8 Drive (A) An acoustic song with a classic chorus and a great bridge.
9 Clean (A) I love the electric guitar that slowly gets heavier and heavier with a great chorus and a soft verse.
10 Battlestar Scralatchtica (B) Thats a mouthful to say right there and an okay instrumental with those guys showing their DJing skills.
11 I Miss You (B-)Kind of a soft song and a little boring.
12 Pardon Me (A) I love this song with its hardhitting chorus.
13 Out From Under (A+) I have no idea why i like this song so much but i do. It talks about escaping from control of your life by others.
I would definitely recommend this CD to fans of hard rock who are looking for creativity.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Incubus...
This Cd I think is Incubus at there best. "Stellar, Make Yorself, and Pardon Me" are awesome songs. The softer "The Warmth" is a song in itself. Read more
