Product Description

Product Description

Limited edition double 180gm vinyl pressing of this 1999 album by the California-based Hard Rock band housed in a numbered gatefold sleeve.


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

In this album, the California fivesome combine elements of rock, hip-hop, jazz, and even a little bit of punk to make a great record that fans of alternative music need to own. Here's a run down of all the tracks:
First we have Privilege. This is a great song, it's very energetic and is a perfect opener. The next song is Nowhere Fast. This one's a little bit slower, but has great melody and guitar work by Mike Einziger. Track Three, Consequence, is kind of in the same vein as Nowhere Fast. Still, it's a superb cut and worth a listen. Next up: The Warmth. This is an excellent track, it's sort of a ballad. It has some electronic noises in the beginning, then a little electronic-sounding guitar riff comes in. The chorus is absolutely beautiful. This song must be heard to be believed. Track Five, When It Comes, is more in the vein of Privilege, in that it's a little bit louder, but still maintains Brandon Boyd's signature melodic wail. Next up is Stellar, which, of course, everyone has probably heard by now. I still like it, though. The title cut is up next. It's a little bit louder and punkish, and it has great lyrics that convey an important message. Track Eight is Drive. I don't think I need to explain this one. Still, great song. The next song, Clean, starts off with bongos, then gradually builds up to a solid rock track. Track Ten is Battlestar Scratchlastica, which is just the DJ doing his stuff. The next cut is I Miss You, a nice, slow love song. Next up: Pardon Me. Just like Drive, I don't think I need to explain this one. But it IS the song that really got me into this band/album, so there you go. The last song is "Out From Under". Incubus goes off with a bang with this one. Awesome.
In closing, this is an essential, and like another reviewer said, even in the dead of winter, this CD can make you feel like it's summer. Recommended.

After "Make Yourself" I am offically an Incubus fan.
The title track, "Make Yourself" has all the hallmarks of a post-modern anthem. The combination of styles: rock, metal, hip-hop, ballad are superbly melded into an ecclecticly diverse package. The interlude "Battlestar Scralatchtica" is a fabulous oasis of funky grooves. "Stellar" is an unbelievably powerful song, lyrically and musically. The guitar on this track is simply unbelievable. "Pardon Me" is a great, catchy tune. Overall, this is fantastic.
It is not often that an album by a relatively new band can have such a strong impact. The high level of musicianship and lyrical evolution on this album was an unexpected surprise. The buzz on Incubus is well deserved. It wouldn't be an overstatement to say that they a rarity - talented musicians, a gifted vocalist and wonderfully crafted songs.
I am thrilled to welcome Incubus into my catalog and am certain they will continue to surprise and impress with each release.

"Make Yourself" makes your ears feel all sorts of things. Pleased is one of them. The cult ear classic (Track 9) is an amazing DJ takeover track that makes your whole body groove with funk. Dirk's bass on the entire album is amazing, and Jose's drums belend perfectly. he doesn't over do it or under do it. It's just right. His cymbal collection came in handy for this studio project.
Some of the best tracks on "Make Yourself" are the overplayed "Drive", good song, even though it was the reason for "Incubus on MTV", "Stellar", an underground hit, "Clean", featuring Boyd's percussion skills, and "I Miss You", with it's romantically chosen lyrics.
If you have any just one Incubus for the rest of your life, then make "Make Yourself" be it. "Make Yourself" go out to the store and buy this freaking record! The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars on my list, is because of it's popish popularity, which is a turn off for many long tiem, hardcore Incubus fans, but it was the album that actually turned me into the Incubus fan that I am today, so there you have it. Get it!

Well I've had this CD for about three years now and i'm still raving about it. Incubus has such a distinctive sound that its hard to compare to other bands although limp bizkit and even the smashing pumpkins come to mind. Dont just download the popular songs you here on the radio or elsewhere, because "Make Yourself" has some great underated songs. The CD starts off with a bang with "Privilege", continues on with great songs like "Nowhere Fast", "The Warmth", "When It Comes", "Stellar" and "Make Yourself" before getting to the smash hit single "Drive". If you've only heard this song, dont be fooled, because, although an undeniably great song, it is a very slow orchestral mello song and almost doesnt fit in with the rest of the more energetic CD. But dont think that the first songs are the best; Clean, Scralatchtica, I Miss You, and Pardon Me (my personal fav) are some of Incubus' best. Virtually every song is great (i personally dont like "Consequence" and "Out from Under" but they're quite tolerable). My top 5 favourite songs are:
1. Pardon Me
2. The Warmth
3. Drive
4. Privilege
5. Stellar
If your still reading, get off the computer and go get the CD already!!
