it's incubus, but think twice
on 6 January 2003
it's certainly incubus, but think twice before you buy this. if you are into the new morning view tracks, or the make yourself tracks, or the heavier science tracks, don't buy this. you won't like it.
only get this if you are a MASSIVE incubus fan, or you are into the funk incubus tracks, like those on enjoy incubus, and some on science.
i happen to like almost all the incubus tracks, and so this was a good addition to my collection. several of the tracks are very catchy. but this is incubus' first effort. compared to everything from enjoy incubus (which came just after fungus amongus) onwards, this is badly written and pretty juvinile.
if you can, listen to some of the tracks before you buy this. i couldn't recommend doing this more.
just to clarify: i like it, but i haven't listened to it for a long time now. it's dated. it's nothing like incubus' latest music.
the tracks on this cd which are also on enjoy incubus ("you will be a hot dancer", "shaft", "take me to your leader" and "hilikus") are different versions. the ones on enjoy incubus are much better! fungus amongus was written when they didn't have a turntablist, so there's none of that on this album.
two tracks in particular: "sink beneath the line" and "psychopsilocybin" are EXCELLENT. if you like the other funk incubus tracks on the other albums, buy this cd just for these two songs. seriously.
