Product Description

Product Description

As Incubus themselves note about Epic's 2000 rerelease of 1996's Fungus Amongus: "The recording's are basically a snapshot of our band, circa 1993-1995. As even the most discriminating ear could deduce, [we were] still struggling to find our feet." It's a caveat not really necessary for Incubus fans, of which there are now many, thanks to their diverse, unique, and thoughtful brand of funky, sometimes-acoustic rock, exemplified on 1999's impressive Make Yourself. This early effort, written and recorded when band members were in their teens, smacks heavily of Primus and Faith No More fanaticism, influences which, on later discs, are blended into an evolving signature sound. Songs such as "Speak Free," "Trouble in 421," and the aggressive, linear "The Answer" are decent, but not as heavy, well-written, or thoughtful as the material on Make Yourself. Ultimately, Fungus Amongus is a lightweight, casual, fun, and funky morsel for hardcore fans. --Katherine Turman

for all u marmadukes out there who are like "i like popular music that makes the top 40 countdown!!!" this heavy cd is not 4 u. but evry1 who digs sum REAL music, buy fungus. the solos are excellent and all the tracks kick, heres a rundown of all the tracks not in order:
You Will Be a Hot Dancer-good opener. this 1 held my attention for a while, den jus got old and boring.
Sink Beneath the Line-my favorite track. this rules. the solos are the best anywhere, the scat by brandon jus blows evry thing on tthis cd outta the water. it took me a while 2 find out the meaning of this song but i finally got it. for evry1 whos wondering, the words at the end are "She should have worn underpants: there were bugs crawlin evrywhere and sh!t"
The Answer-linear or not i love this song. it is very serioous and i love the solo
Shaft-another 1 of my favs. sumtin about the whole metal thing jus rules and i love the intro. 2 bad theres no REAL solo...
Hilikus-i play the bass and this along with Speak Free are jus amazing. this song is cool and the solo is really laid back.
Speak Free-omg they finally did it! funk punk grunge political lyrics and metal!!! whoa a must listen to. check out the slap bass at the beginning
Trouble in 421-meh. not that great
Psycopsilocybin-still dont no how 2 spell it. weird. truly weird. good tho. not 1 of the best but its sure goin agains all that pop stuff of 2day
Take Me to Your Leader-good headbangers classic. the intro is a bit 2 long and boring tho. good riffs and a nice groove. made me freak out wit the lyrics
Medium-funky? metally? dunno. reminicent of the weirdness of psycopsilocybin, i think this is among the best.great lyrics adn a great intro (lol)
well if you had the courage to read all this i guess u are interested in the cd. if ur a fan of Lifehouse and Weezer and other poprock garbage pass this by. but if u dig the real deal go for it. u wont be disappointed.
didnt i jus say go for it?!

Incubus Album #1
My junior year of high school (a fair amount of time has passed since then) all my friends are heavily into Incubus, but I have a good laugh at them. At the time I was very much into punk, indie, and heavy metal, and Incubus seemed to be yet another nu-metal band. If it wasn't their music that completely disgusted me, it was Brandon Boyd's inevitability to be shirtless everytime a camera was placed upon him.
Then the day came when a random friend told me his mother bought him the first Incubus and it was the best thing he had ever heard. He placed it in his CD player and though I was not floored, I must admit I was hearing something by Incubus and I actually enjoyed it.
This album has a fair amount of Primus, Faith No More, and Chili Peppers influencing it (especially in the bass, which is much heavier and louder in the mix than most future efforts) however in Boyd's quirky lyrics and oft-changing vocal stylings I heard a young man who obviously was a Mr. Bungle fan, and I can't bash him for that. "Gonna Be A Hot Dancer" and "Hilikus" are songs cut from the more Mr. Bungle-esque thread, as they feature frantic screaming by Boyd, something he hardly does anymore. Other songs have more of a funk 'n roll sound to them, similar to early Chili Peppers with a much better lead guitar player (sorry John, Dave, and Hilel, but you guys are no Mike Eisinger). "Sink Beneath the Line" features some of the best Eisinger guitar work in his entire career, it is hard to believe he was so young at the time.
As good as this album is, it just doesn't have a strong cohesiveness; and the songs themselves are only half memorable, with the exception definitely being "Sink Beneath the Line".

I must say that this cd is an amazing peice of skill. Theres probably about maybe 5 bands out there that play their music with as much skill as incubus shows in this cd. I wouldnt recomend this cd to poser poppy kids who are only in to their more "radio-friendly" music. This cd shows what incubus is really all about. Every single instrument is played with amazing skill, each of them are obviously the best at what they do. I must say that wahat the person said before, and i quote - "Their skills are admittedly great for a bunch of sixteen-year-olds, but that doesn't mean the music is acceptable by any standards." Im sorry, but if you dont like this kinda music you have no place to criticize this cd. Their skills are "great for a bunch of 16yr olds"? Thats a little harsh, considering that i've been playing bass for years, including at least 10 yrs playin slap bass, and these songs still pose a challenge to me. The bass is phenomenal. Im really sad to hear that dirk left the band, but i can understand why. His type of music is in this cd, not in watered down radio-friendly simple basslines. I love science and make yourself and morning view also, but this one will always be my favorite.

I've listened to Incubus for as long as I can remember. The first album i owned of theirs was "S.C.I.E.N.C.E." which totally rocked. I liked every song on the album. No. Scratch that. I loved every song on the album. From there, I purchased "Enjoy Incubus" which was even better, and "Fungus Amongus" that shadowed the other two so completely that I was sure I'd found the alpha-album.
Later on, as Incubus began to gain in popularity, I purchased "Make Yourself" and still later, "morning view"... both of which sickened me to the core. Although "Make Yourself" had enormous potential as a transition between two different styles.. it never quite made it. In fact, it is in my opinion that modern day Incubus is nothing more than regurgitated radio crap. If even that. I understand that bands do change with time, but i didn't realize that "change" meant "suck."
What used to be some of the best bass I'd ever heard outside of Nuclear Rabbit or Primus became roots. Not to mention the absence of scratch/mixing in the later albums. Incubus went from phenomenal to mediocre in the course of only a few years.
"Fungus Amongus" is Incubus at their best. BUY THIS ALBUM. It's spunky, energetic, original, and the talent of the band is apparent in every song. Personal favorites: Speak Free, Sink Beneath the Line, and Trouble in 421. Savour the remnants of their genuis while you still can.
