Review

Incubus is basically pretty inoffensive lowest common denominator nu-metal crap music. The whole album is defined by this, it has a wide appeal for the worse reasons, it is not challenging, not smart, not awful... its just bland and slightly annoying and adolescent.

Now usually I fill up three paragraphs with each review. But really there is not much to say about Incubus... so let's talk about the weather. It has been pretty hot here, they say it'll be 38 celsius tomorrow... which for you Americans is 100.4 Farenheit... hot.

It has been quite sunny as well, was down at the beach today, on the esplanade which is the best place to be in, with a cold drink. Been taking my driving license, and I have to write an article on religious symbolism in Asian bladed weapons for the catalogue of an exhibition. They'll pay me big bucks so that's nice. Incubus is not so nice.

Track Highlights

1. Stellar
2. Drive
3. Battlestar Scralatchica
4. Out From Under

Final Grade

6/10

Trivia

From Wikipedia:

To many fans, Make Yourself represents a significant shift in the band's sound, with higher quality production sounds, a more mellow, experimental tone to it than its precursor, S.C.I.E.N.C.E. and more complex, sophisticated lyrics.

Congratulations on your fiscal success!

Kind of baffled by this album. Just... baffled.
