I've heard for years that Incubus's first album was amazing, but due to their unbelievable suckiness I never bothered looking into it. I didn't believe that the same band that made all those terrible pop singles on MTV could possibly produce any good music. I'm used to hearing songs like "Stellar" and "Pardon Me" from these guys. The last thing I expected from them was the very thing I was about to hear. Recently, a friend of mine practically forced it on me. I cannot believe that it's the same band. I LOVE this album. It's similar to the Chili Peppers, but heavier. It's chock full of kickass bass playing, unique guitar work (imagine Claypool playing a guitar), and very impressive singing (the singer was only 16 when he recorded this). Plenty of slap stuff (all of which is very good), and lots of tastey grooves too. Some of it is very funky, some of it is plain old rock, all of it is very creative and generally kickass music. I guess the point of this thread is just to spread the word. To promote Incubus awareness. Beneath the crap you see on TV and the radio, there is a VERY talented band and I feel that everyone should know about this album and hear it at least once. It's too fu**ing good to go unnoticed and buried beneath the years of bad music they've produced since then.
