5.0 out of 5 stars Consider Myself Made, 27 April 2002
An album that was always one step ahead of its predecessors, Incubus have found the perfect musical concoction in what is their best album yet. Brandon Boyd's vocals are clear and very melodic, Mike Einziger's guitar riffs provide a decent contrast between clean and distorted, former Jurassic 5 DJ Chris Kilmore provides a subtle element as the "extra instrument", something which is used to his advantage, more so than on previous recordings, whereas the rhythm section of Dirk Lance and José Pasillas provides the suitable funk-inflected hard rock that Incubus are so good at on this album. The stand out tracks on "Make Yourself" are "The Warmth", "Consequence", "Stellar", "Privilege" and sleeper singles "Pardon Me" and "Drive". Incubus could hardly have done better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Impeccable!, 27 April 2002
This review is from: Mer De Noms (Audio CD)
This is simply one of the best albums I've heard in years. Maynard James Keenan here teams up with Tool and Nine Inch Nails guitar technician Billy Howerdel, Failure guitarist Troy Van Leeuwen, Big Milk/Camerata Tango bassist Paz Lenchantin and Vandals/Guns'n'Roses drummer Josh Freese for a simply stunning record, taking a similar musical stance to that of the Smashing Pumpkins rather than Maynard's more familiar band Tool. From the opening bursts of "The Hollow" to the slow, mournful "Over", not one single duff track can be found on there. Involving certain themes to some songs (the imagery of Mary Magdalene in "Magdalena", Greek mythological figures in "Orestes", masturbation in "Thinking Of You" and unrequited love on "3 Libras" being prime examples), no other supergroup has come close to making an album this good. If you don't have this album now, you really should get it.
