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

Woooooaaaaaaah! This isnt your typical "Best of" album. Incubus have come such a long way since the days of S.C.I.E.N.C.E and all for the better. For me the 2nd disc is where the gems are. Full of rare tracks that havent been released, its truly a masterpiece in itself. The standout tracks are Neither of us can see, Admiration(both taken from the Stealth soundtrack), While the vultures fead and Punch Drunk. Watch out for the cover of Princes Lets Go Crazy at the end...a nice Incubus take on a classic.
Buy the limited edition too as it gives you access to the incubus vault website with even more rare tracks and videos you can download!

Best hits album ever. Got all Incubus's classics witha fef extras on the bonus cd. You'll get tehm if you buy the soundtracs to motion pictures or games like i have or on some singles also. A very good buy worth the money. A must for true hardcore Incubus fans

I won't do you a disservice here and review the first disc, `Monuments'. So, a brief overview then: it consists primarily of the hit singles the band have had since their inception in 1991, although it omits anything from the bands second album proper, `S.C.I.E.N.C.E.'. This makes sense; it was the song `Drive' (from 1999's `Make Yourself') that scored the band their biggest hit and launched them into the big leagues. Anything before said period (`Fungous Amongous', the `Enjoy Incubus' E.P. and aforementioned `S.C.I.E.N.C.E.') shouldn't technically be on a greatest hits package as it didn't really HIT anybody, bar the underground metal scene. However, including something from the bands funk-metal days may have helped to illustrate how much they've grown as musicians and song writers. They're not peddling sub-Mr Bungle or Primus anymore. These guys have grown up. So along with two new, strong compositions (the anthemic `Black Heart Inertia' and `Midnight Swim'), that pretty much encapsulates the first disc.

The second disc, `Melodies', is far more interesting. Consisting of b-sides from the bands back catalogue, this disc illustrates, like Smashing Pumpkin's `Pisces Iscariot', that an album of throwaways doesn't necessarily mean a throwaway album. Songs like `Neither of Us Can See' and `While All the Vultures Feed' cleverly reverse the typical Incubus formula of hummable-verse into epic chorus by featuring genuinely thrilling opening bars of music with verses that, in my opinion, are stronger than the choruses that follow. `Look Alive' is played with such spirit that you can't help but be sucked along for the ride, whilst `Punch Drunk' starts off slowly, hypnotically, before descending into the kind of organised noise the band explored in `Sick, Sad Little World' from `Crow Left...'.

I love Incubus so I am slightly biased as they are one of my favourite bands! Obviously there are 2 discs in this release, the first disc being previously released like a greatest hits cd, and the 2nd having unreleased tracks which are astounding! The Certain shade of Green acoustic version is legendary as are the other songs. If you are an Incubus fan this is a must have compilation! Highly recommended!!

A must for every Incubus lover. CD1 is a greatest hits album, just wonderful. Amongst the songs on it are my two favorite Incubus songs: Anna Molly and Megalomaniac. CD2 contains songs that have not appeared in albums before(as far as I Know). Both are proof of how talented and unique this band is. As my title says: Addictive, it hasn't left my stereo since it arrived.
