4.0 out of 5 stars Superb Funk Fest!, 21 April 2002
This review is from: Fungus Amongus (Audio CD)
If you like guitar solos and hard-hitting lyrics, then you'll love this! Despite the lack of more intelligent lyrics & better vocal ability we see in future releases, Incubus pull off an incredible performance here. The guitar riffs are just ingenious especially on "Trouble In 421" and "Psychopsilocybin". Although there's only ten tracks, it's still definately worth a look and a must have for all Incubus / funk fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars Suprisingly good mix of funk and metal, for an EP., 21 April 2002
This review is from: Enjoy Incubus (Audio CD)
I was suprised with this album primarily because as an EP with only six tracks, I would have thought the worse. However, "Enjoy Incubus" defies all my preconceptions. The remakes of "You Will Be A Hot Dancer", "Shaft", and the others are so much better than the Fungus Amongus originials. The scratches and enhanced bass really make them sound so cool. The newtracks: "Version" and "Azwethinkweiz" are also brilliant, and the interludes are funny too. This is certainly worth getting despite the lack of tracks available, and is definately a step up from the self-released predecessor.

4.0 out of 5 stars An all-round decent nu-metal release., 21 April 2002
This review is from: S.c.i.e.n.c.e. (Audio CD)
In my opinion, this album was an experiment to evolve Incubus into the new genres of rock music. This is because there is a variety of different styles including heavy metal, funk, and drum 'n' bass. the heavier tracks ("A Certain Shade Of Green", "New Skin") are cool, but there are also some lighter, funkier ones like "Deep Inside" and "Summer Romance", which are also very good. However there is a mix of Gavin Koppel's drum 'n' bass & DJ demos, (namely "Magic Medicine") which let the album down. However, on the whole it is a well orchestrated 'in your face' release that set the scene for the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect successor to Make Yourself., 21 April 2002
This review is from: Morning View (Audio CD)
I liked this album because it was simply an extension to "Make Yourself". "Morning View" maintains the mix of mellow songs ("Mexico", "Echo") and heavy songs ("Have You Ever", "Under My Umbrella") like on the previous album. Also , the acoustic guitar is much more emphasised on this album than on Make Yourself's acoustic bonus tracks ("Pardon Me", "Stellar"). The lyrical standard has improved even further with lyrics like "Unbashed honesty would be ideal, but a prophet did once say that honesty's a lonely word". Incubus have definately matured from the earlier years, encorporaring Michael Einziger's guitar genius, Brandon Boyd's vocal abilities, and yes even Chris Kilmore's DJ demos into an album that, along with "Make Yourself", shows Incubus to be a band that is so utterly and resoundingly better than any other bands to date that it's difficult to come to terms with.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Incubus release yet!, 21 April 2002
I think this album was the result of the experimentation of its predecessor: S.C.I.E.N.C.E. Incubus have become a lot more mellow with tracks like "I Miss You"; "Stellar" and "Drive", yet it still maintains the heavier elements of before in songls like "Make Yourself" and "Out From Under". The standard of lyrics has also improved from the old funk days of Fungus Amongus. However, most importantly, this album has structure in its tracks, and the album has a definite theme to it about autonomy, self-belief, and cofnidence - areas touched on in previous songs like "Idiot Box" and "Favorite Things". Generally, this album is Incubus at their best and I'd urge any music fan to go and get this. It rocks!
