Summary: Young, aggro, and from Los Angeles--it's tempting to put Incubus in the already crowded category populated by Korn, System of a Down, and their other loud and heavy brethren. But that would sell Incubus short, because "Make Yourself", the quintet's sophomore album, is a strong progression beyond their 1997 debut, "S.C.I.E.N.C.E.". More like Faith No More than Limp Bizkit, Incubus still have that teen-mosh appeal, though the songwriting and instrumentation on "Make Yourself" is diverse and thoughtful, both lyrically and musically. "Drive" is an easygoing, slightly trippy acoustic-based outing, while oddball scratching (courtesy of DJ Chris Kilmore) and trip-hop funkiness make "Battlestar Scralatchtica" aptly titled. "Nowhere Fast" is vaguely 311-ish with a reggae tinge and lovely melodic interludes, in contrast to the furious intensity of "Out from Under," which gives "Make Yourself" a surprisingly cohesive diversity that's hard to categorize. Ultimately, singer Brandon Boyd is not a vocal genius, but lyrically and in performance, he's sensitive, charismatic, and unique. Ditto for the 13 cuts that make up "Make Yourself".

Summary: Though "Morning View" follows hot on the heels of Incubus's breakthrough single, "Drive," it doesn't feel rushed. After all, their previous album, "Make Yourself", was released nearly two years ago. Like fellow Los Angeles metal pioneers System of a Down, Incubus find themselves lumped in with the nu-metal fraternity merely because they're young(ish), angry, and very loud. That's more than a little unfair, because their sound owes more to the clever and creative funk-metal of Faith No More and the Red Hot Chili Peppers than the faux-rap posturing of Limp Bizkit. In fact, songs like "Nice to Know You," "Circles," and the excellent "Blood on the Ground" display real maturity. But that's not all that sets Incubus apart: on "I Wish You Were Here," "Just a Phase," "11 a.m.," and "Mexico," they show an uncharacteristic willingness to tread softly, using acoustic guitars and touches of strings to make less noise, but more impact. Some could call it selling out, but it sounds more like growing up. "Morning View" is a leap forward for a band that continues to get better with each release. "--Robert Burrow"

Summary: This is what Incubus was back in the days of 1997. "S.C.I.E.N.C.E." is probably my favorite album that Incubus has ever put out. The album has so much variety from jazzy tracks like "Summer Romance" to funky tracks like "Magic Medicine" to harder tracks like "New Skin". I'm a huge fan of them and enjoy pretty much everything they have done. "Make Yourself" had once been my favorite until I discovered "S.C.I.E.N.C.E." not so long ago. It now stands as one of my all time favorite records. My favorite tracks are probably "New Skin", "Vitamin", "Idiot Box", and "Calgone". Here are my track ratings...

1. Redefine - 9.5/10

2. Vitamin - 10/10

3. New Skin - 10/10

4. Idiot Box - 10/10

5. Glass - 9.5/10

6. Magic Medicine - 9/10

7. A Certain Shade Of Green - 9/10

8. Favorite Things - 10/10

9. Summer Romance (Anti-Gravity Love Song) - 9.5/10

10. Nebula - 8.5/10

11. Deep Inside - 10/10

12. Calgone - 10/10

Overall: 96% A

From beginning to end this album is awesome. I love every moment and I feel that everything is put together so well. Even the hidden track keeps you entertained for the entire 12min or so that it goes. I just can't tell you how much I love this album. A word of advice though, for anyone who feels that "Make Yourself" isn't the best and enjoys "A Crow Left Of The Murder" or "Morning View" the most should take my review with caution. I wasn't a huge fan of "ACLOTM" and I like the harder "Morning View" side of Incubus more. You will probably still find something you enjoy from this you just may not consider it the best. Anyway, check this out if you are interested to hear the Original harder funky side of Incubus.
