  • I’ve been an Incubus fan for so long that I can’t remember when I first listened to them… Fungous Amongus and Enjoy Incubus were great albums, when they were into their earlier funk and freestyle influences. S.C.I.E.N.C.E was the first full-length album that carved a niche for Incubus in the “alternative” mainstream, and was IMHO their best offering up until “Morning View.” This album is amazing in all sense of the word. Incubus has evolved throughout the years, and through this evolution, they have become become the future sound of rock. SCIENCE was my favorite album, up until today…Here’s the skinny on this album, track by track:NICE TO KNOW YOU: a perfect opening song, reminscent of “SCIENCE,” yet smooth and full of flow like “Make Yourself.”CIRCLES: another track reminsenct of Incubus’s harder, edgier style, destined to be a chart-topper.WISH YOU WERE HERE: if you haven’t heard this tune yet, you are missing out on something special. perfect harmonies and subtle yet powerful and visceral acoustic guitar on this song that will have you singing along in no time.JUST A PHASE: edgy power-rock with poetic vocals, great tune.11 AM: least favorite song on album, but that doesn’t mean anything because I admire the musical complexity that Incubus has to offer… you’ve probably heard this (…) before, but, there really isn’t a “bad” song on the CD.BLOOD ON THE GROUND: second best song on CD. Incubus’s maturity can really be seen with this song. Brandon has a knack for writing lyrics that make people think, this song is proof of that special knack.MEXICO: Many of the songs on this album have been toned down from what we come to expect from Incubus. This is a great thing, because it shows that this band can do much more than blow your eardrums off. Their talent is so diverse. Mexico is a great slower song,and the lyrics are fantastic.WARNING: 3rd best song on CD, great tune, with catchy lyrics. another destined to be a chart topper.ECHO: more of the lighter side of the band, good tune with a great melody.HAVE YOU EVER: back to basics with this song. back to their harder edgier stuff… definite head bobber.ARE YOU IN?: funky, funky, now… great funk flava for the homies. 4th best song on the album.UNDER MY UMBRELLA: i really love their harder tunes because it hits me right square in my dome… sometimes i need that, i think we all do.AQUEOUS TRANSMISSION: hands down the best song on the CD. maturity level is through the roof here. with far-east sounding background ambience, and all those damn crickets, this song will transcend all other experimental tunes they have tackled. put this song on, and drop out for a while…. you’ll see what I mean……I hope that helps. This CD was one of the better investments I have made in recent memory… 5+ stars…. go get it nowI said go get it, what are you waiting for????
