Biography

Success is a devilish opiate. A swift and heady drink that goes down smooth at first, and then starts to burn your throat and rattle your bones. Only to leave crater sized holes in your constitution the next day. We all love a good success story, don't we? But interestingly, what usually makes it 'good' are not the 'good' things about the story. No. It's the bad things ... Read more in Amazon's Incubus Store

5.0 out of 5 stars incubus truly make themselves 9 Jun 2005
Format:Audio CD
i originally bought this album because my friend said that it was one of her favourite cd's of all time. she wasnt wrong! incubus present such a diverse and beautiful selection of tracks here, ranging from the loud and passionate 'pardon me', the acoustic tones of 'drive' (my personal favourite) and even the romantic 'i miss you'. it is incommon for a band as established as incubus to produce an album so different and diverse without alienating their fanbase, but this reaches out to the existing incubus fans and certainly created a lot of new fans. needless to say, this album is an absolute must for all music lovers. brandon boyd's vocals perfectly compliment the tone of each song and highlight the thought provoking lyrics in every track. just buy it, it really is worth the money, and plus there's a bonus cd of acoustic remakes of some songs. this album will have no problem achieving classic status.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent. The best of it's 'genre' 7 Oct 2001
Format:Audio CD
I say genre, but I think it's a little unfair to categorise Incubus as a 'nu-metal' band - what's on show here is far more diverse. Alright they certainly like loud guitars, but they also like to throw in some funky basses and samples that actually add something to the song. While I don't want to criticise other nu-metal bands, I think Incubus really need to stand out there on their own. The biggest reason - Brandon Boyd's superb voice and songwriting capabilities. He raises issues that many other bands do, (pressures of the world on young people, attempts to be moulded into society), but somehow deals with them in the right way, looking at it without hate but hope. (the hit single drive being the best example). That said my personal fave is 'Stellar' a chilled out rock ballad. Buy it enjoy it, whether you like nu metal or not.

5.0 out of 5 stars Make Yourself 8 July 2005
Format:Audio CD
Brilliant! This is a outstanding album from an outstanding American band. Their music is inspirational, and every track on this album is, in its own individual way, a gem.
The contrast between songs is something very rarely seen in modern day LP's, but these guys pull it off, and then some!
My favourite track has to be 'Make Yourself', possibly because as i am merely sixteen, little else interests me than heavy rock, but the song is well written and magnificently performed!
But there is something for everyone here unless you're a Mozart purist, in that case stay away!
But if you want to blow a tenner on something, and you want to blow it on something good; blow it on this!

5.0 out of 5 stars knock your socks off 4 Jan 2003
Format:Audio CD
From the moment the opening chords of "Privilege" rip through the sound system, you know you're in for an amazing forty odd minutes of an album, and Incubus fail to disappoint. Each song has a completely different approach to music. The band embrace each note and release it harmonically, yet also with zest to the listener. "The warmth" and the intstumental piece are slightly out of co-ordination with the remaining tracks, but still capture the essence of Incubus. The musicians alter from album to album, and if you were expecting the encore of funk-metal previously produced on S.C.I.E.N.C.E, there are hints of it in tracks such as "Make Yourself" and "Out from Under", but don't be put off, because this album is probably what defines Incubus among today's society of up and coming bands. Songs which have made legendary trademarks, such as "Drive" and "Pardon Me" are the epitomy of the bands' roots, and probably lead on to the softer and possibly more volatile sounds of their recent release - Morning View. To all pure Incubus fans, this is a memorable and must-have CD to your collection, and you'll admire every sound Brandon, Mike, Dirk, Jose and DJ Kilmore produce. The only thing to bear in mind is the fact that there are five members of this band, it's so easy to focus on one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Incubus At Their Very Best 31 Aug 2004
Format:Audio CD
I only just got this album about 2 weeks ago, but it hasn't been off my CD player at all, i think the great balance between rock and the more melodic harmonies really entwine to make a great rock album that every aspiring music artist should atleast try out. It all starts off with Privelege(9/10) which is a great start to this smashing album, Brandon's voice really compliments the great beats by Michael Einziger and Jose Pinillas on drums throughout the whole album.
Then things carry onto Nowhere Fast(8/10), which is pretty more of the same and then Consequence(8/10) make the beginning of the album very tasty. Then comes The Warmth(9/10), which is one of my favourites, and again the lyrics are sang confidently and beautifully.Then When It Comes(9/10)keeps the album upbeat and at a fast beat.Stellar(8/10) takes things a bit slow, but then to the the albums namesake Make Yourself(10/10) which couldn't be any truer a song about the world at the moment. Well known single Drive(9/10) is always a great song to chillout to, and the Clean(8/10) ain't half bad, with the kinda James Bond introduction. Then it all starts to go a bit wayward when Miss You starts(6/10) and the following that Battlestar Scralachtica isn't a corker(6/10) although DJ Killmore doesn't half know how to throw down rocking riffs! Then Incubus set back on track with the classic Pardon Me(10/10) which was as though it was written for Brandons voice. Towards the end it gets all experimental, but this has to be Incubus' best album, if not it must match A Crow Left Of The Murder.
Brandon on lyrics piercing and beautiful, Einzingers fantastic riffs on guitar, Jose' beating drums and Killmores bouncy beats amount to one hella of a band!
