Produced by Scott Litt, Incubus' second full-length album, Make Yourself, makes a bid for broader mainstream success while keeping the group rooted in a hybrid of familiar late '90s alt-metal (i.e., roaring guitars, white-noise sonic textures, and an undercurrent of electronics) and Chili Pepper funk-rock.

Overview

Produced by Scott Litt, Incubus' second full-length album, Make Yourself, makes a bid for broader mainstream success while keeping the group rooted in a hybrid of familiar late '90s alt-metal (i.e., roaring guitars, white-noise sonic textures, and an undercurrent of electronics) and Chili Pepper funk-rock. Where S.C.I.E.N.C.E. sometimes veered abruptly between the two genres without really fusing them, Make Yourself finds the band settling more comfortably into its sound, and once again, there are a few really good singles. Once again, too, there are still a few awkward moments and underwritten songs, but overall, the album should definitely please fans.

Incubus, man if you read this you are awesome, the way you did the guitar, with it's new styles, or with the bass, showing up at the perfect time, or the dj, adding crisply to it, all of this adds to awesome lyrics and vocals.

I saw Incubus perform in 1997. I loved them now, and I love their new sound now

I'd like to give Incubus in general 5 stars. I think they are such a great band, that will hopefully stay around for a while. This is definately one cd that you can't just stop listening to all of a sudden. It takes a long time to wear off! Even if it does wear off. For myself, I can say it hasn't.

I thought, from ''Drive,'' ''Stellar,'' and ''Pardon Me,'' that the album had to be a great album. I was wrong. The only other good song on this album is ''Battlestar Scralatchtica,'' and that's an instrumental (albeit very melodic and enjoyable). Other than that, this is tired, generic rock I was hoping not to hear.

This cd rules 'cause it has 13 great songs on it, not just one or two. Besides ''Pardon Me'', the best songs on the cd are ''Nowhere Fast'' , ''Make Yourself'', and ''The Warmth''.

INCUBUS has finally found a more mainstream , commercial approach to their song writing\sound.Now that maturity & touring experience is of them, MAKE YOURSELF offers a variety of sound that you might not expect from current alt/rock artists. The better trax are; DRIVE,PARDON ME,& my crunchy favorite,OUT FROM UNDER.

I have too much to say about this band...from how they have risen to fame to even just the simple beautiful notes sung by lead vocalist, Brandon Boyd. Waaaay too much to say...so I'll leave it at this-INCUBUS-a unique, kickass band that hasn't dissappointed me yet. definitely one of my favorites.

With the classic sound of Brandon's voice mixed with a dash of the other band memebers, you have the enticing sounds of Incubus. There songs flow together inviting you to get up and dance or just sit there and relax. A few favorite songs to listen to are... Clean, Make Yourself, and Drive. A must buy.

Make Yourself, the third installment from the funk/metal band Incubus, picks up right where the last album left off as it defines new levels of musical craftsmanship. The bands ability to fuse together so many different styles of music is what makes them so amazing. It offers everything from slow romantic tones to heavy distorted ones that leave the listener stunned by the sheer talent that the band offers. Put very simply, this album rocks. The final product is a result of the transformation that Incubus claims has finally left them where they want to be musically. The songs from Make Yourself are well structured, diverse, and fit my only requirement of good music, they blow my mind. Take twelve amazing songs backed with the strong melodic abilities of lead singer Brandon Boyd, and you have got yourself a quality album. If you've not yet heard this album or even Incubus, do yourself a favor and check out Make Yourself.

I really liked the book Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire because it was sooooooo magical.I'm a person who likes books with different backgrounds such as: fiction stories including magic, adventure,comedy and mystery! I really enjoy things that are out of this world! I think that people who like to be different and don't hang around the crowd like books that are odd, like me. Remember you can read anything you want,no matter what others say!

As with all of the Incubus CDs I love every song on the album. Incubus is great, and I suggest this album to anyone who loves great music with deep and interesting lyrics.

If you are familiar with Incubus, then you know they have a very unique sound. I bought this album almost expecting to hate it. After a while, the music grew on me and I now consider Incubus my favorite band. If a band can completely reverse my opinion, they have to be awesome. I like this album more than their others because they seem to be more mature and musical. The lyrics in particular are much more meaningful. Don't let the name of the band fool you (an incubus is a demon that descends on women while they're sleep and has sex with them); there's actually a message!

When i first heard this album, I fell i love with it. There isn't a song that i don't like. Stellar is my favorite song of all time!!Incubus is an awesome band and they still have good things to come!

After hearing ''Pardon Me'' on the radio, I new I had to have this CD. This whole CD is awesome and I love their Sci Fi sound. There is not one weak track on this CD. Some of the good songs on this CD are ''Stellar'', ''Make Yourself'', ''Drive'', and the best, ''Pardon Me''.

While this album doesn't top S.C.I.E.N.C.E (in my opinion) it comes very close. Definately in my top five albums list. While this may not be my favouite Incubus album, it does include my favourite song, ''Make Yourself''. This is not only my favourite song by the band, but my favouite song ever. This song means a lot to me for various reasons, and portrays a good message. Other noteworthy songs are, ''Privilege, ''Clean'', ''The Warmth'', and ''Stellar''... they're all good. If this album isn't in your collection already, go out and buy it!

I'm not sure who came first, 7 Minds or Incubus, but this album packs a similar punch as well as a few melodic surprises like those found in 7 Minds' latest CD, Diminished.

This band has given given all artists a huge monster to defeat. Incubus has re-constructed rock as we know it!

This is in my opinion the greatest musical contrivance ever produced. The singles, Pardon Me, Drive, and Stellar aren't even the best songs on this album. The spectacular, spacey, sonic sounds of Mike Einziger sweep you away into another plane, while the powerful vocals of Brandon Boyd(in my opinion the best rock singer there is) hit home with their potent meaning. The bass and drums are the driving force in many of the songs, while other DJ's are pathetic amatuers compared to the sounds of Kilmore. This transcends anything produced to date.

INCUBUS IS THE BEST BAND IN THE WHOLE WORLD. THEIR LYRICS ARE AWESOME AND YOU COULD LISTEN TO THE SONGS FOREVER. THIS IS A GREAT CD- EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE IT. SONGS 4 (THE WARMTH) 8 (DRIVE) AND 12(PARDON ME) ARE THE BEST.

The B+N review writer and the reviewer who gave this cd only a couple stars are so so wrong. This cd is amazing! All of it, not just the hits. Actually I almost prefer some of the non hits better like "Make Yourself" and "The Warmth", "Privilege", and "I Miss You." This is one of those cd's I'd actually label as a classic and I don't say that about all the music I like. Every song here is astounding and sucks you in. You feel like you are on a journey through your mind. God, this cd is so scratched up from having it in my car all the time.
