Descriptions du produit


Vitaminé, tel est l’adjectif qui qualifie ce cocktail de funk, métal, hip-hop et jazz concocté par Incubus en 1997, dans une sorte d’euphorie communicative. Le groupe fait encore partie des espoirs de la famille métal-fusion mais vient de signer sur le label Immortal Records. Une étape importante pour ces musiciens issus de la scène universitaire californienne.

Leurs détracteurs n’ont vu chez Incubus que des continuateurs des Red Hot Chili Peppers et Faith No More. Certes on sent, du premier titre « Redefine » au dernier cri de « Calgone », l’influence des ainés. Mais une musique est toujours inspirée d’une autre et Brandon Boyd ne cache pas son admiration pour Mike Patton et Anthony Kiedis. C’est donc avec maîtrise que ses textes malins, sa voix tantôt « rappée », tantôt posée, tantôt éraillée, soufflent le froid et surtout le chaud sur nos platines. 

Car, antithèses de groupes et postulats grunges, ces californiens ont un message positif et progressiste. « A Certain Shade of Green » implore la jeunesse de ne pas tomber dans la procrastination, de rester éveillée. Les guitares qui hoquètent sur « Calgone » illustrent ce qu’ils fustigent : la peur d’agir. Avec « Summer Romance – Antigravity Love song », Incubus s’octroie une pause jazz grâce au saxophoniste Jeremy Wasser. Enfin, pour sa dernière collaboration avec le groupe, électro-dub et trip-hop sont distillés par Gavin Koppell (alias DJ Lyfe) aux platines et samples, et concentrés sur « Glass » et « Magic Medicine ».

Exubérant et courageux, cet album a le défaut des premières œuvres dans lesquelles on veut tout dire, trop dire, au risque de s’éparpiller. S.C.I.E.N.C.E. est peut-être imparfait, mais possède un groove et une énergie irrésistibles. En manipulant les ingrédients dans leur laboratoire, les démons d’Incubus se sont approchés de la formule de l’élixir de jouvence.

Incubus bring in the funk! 17 août 2004
Par The Wickerman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
If you're only familiar with Incubus's recent work, and haven't yet heard this album, then you're in for a total shock. This Incubus was a much different one. While they've recently moved to a more catchy and accessible (but still great) sound, they were once a much heavier and more experimental band. "SCIENCE" is probably the best and most creative thing they've ever done. The music has a very heavily funk-influenced style, similar to early Chili Peppers and Faith No More. However, their sound was still very distinctive and unique.

Frontman Brandon Boyd puts on what is easily his best performance to date. His quality melodic voice is still there, but his performance overall is more aggressive and eclectic. He effortlessly toggles between singing, rapping, and screaming, and always keeps it interesting. The musicians all put on fine performances, particularly Dirk Lance and Jose Pasillas, who stand out much more here than on later releases. Lance is a super-funky bassist, who can drive the song with power and groove, and Pasillas is an extremely dexterous and versatile drummer, who can combine many different styles with precision and finesse. Mike Einziger is an extremely creative and talented guitarist, excelling in both metal and funk styles. And, the mighty scratches of DJ Lyte give a bit of a hip hop flavor, which melds well with their brand of metallic funk.

The album is full of diversity, and fun twists and turns. "Redefine", "New Skin", and "A Certain Shade of Green" are hard-hitting funk-metal, with catchy melodic choruses to balance things out. "Vitamin" is kind of a straight-ahead hard rocker, with a wacky instrumental breakdown to shake things up. "Glass" features a jangly Primus-like bassline, mixed with a crushing guitar riff on the chorus. "Idiot Box" is sort of a slow funky groove, with some pretty wicked time changes. "Nebula" and "Calgone" are pure insanity, with some very jazzy drum work, and a lot of weird rhythms and time changes. "Deep Inside" moves back and forth between a funk/hip hop groove, and crushing metal, with a really cool bluesy guitar solo. "Magic Medicine" is sort of an instrumental, with some interesting drum beats superimposing some weird dialogue samples. The highlight of the album comes with "Summer Romance (Anti-Gravity Love Song)", the ballad of the album. This song is basically straight-up oldschool soul/funk, complete with Temptations-like backup vocals on the chorus, and a nifty saxophone solo. Definitely one of the coolest songs they've done. Great feel to it, too. Really puts one in the mind of meeting up with a cool chick on a hot summer night.

The album also features a hidden track, roughly ten minutes in length. The track is mainly driven by Pasillas, and his wildly eclectic and always engaging drumwork. The song moves through several musical styles, from hip hop, to melodic rock, to funk, to jazz, and is interspersed with wacky sound samples, and a guitar riff and bassline here and there. One of the technicians apparently screwed up the ending of the last song (you get to hear one of the bandmembers, probably Brandon, scold him :), so this hidden track was most likely thrown in to make up for it. Sometimes mistakes are blessings in disguise.

Anyway, this is an extremely well-made and fun album, one of the finest rock albums of the 90's, no doubt. Even if you hate newer Incubus (which I don't), you should definitely look into this, as this is quality music that anyone with an appreciation for the creative and unconventional can appreciate. Buy now.

Does Modern Rock get any better ? 6 décembre 2003
Par A. Cox - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
This is currently my favourite album to listen to, and most certainly the most interesting; which of course means its my favourite of all their CD's. Now the others I've listened to, I would give 5 stars, but this is easily 6, and slips into my top 20 alltime albums (and I have alot of albums to choose from).
This a fantasic debut album, taking me back to the craziness of the 1st two Roxy Music Albums (yes I know that was a long time ago, but I remember them, and still listen to them)
Initially, after having enjoyed Morning View, I thought, 'no, not as good', but after the 2nd listening, Redefine and Vitamin caught my 'ear' and then after further listening I realised that the initial problem was the sear variety of music styles played, the sear scale of 'orginal ideas'; however the more I listen the more that variety made the album much more interesting listening for the longer term. In fact the opening track trio are probably my favorite combined opening on any album.
Yes, not everything is perfect, and some styles don't quite gel as well as they might, I wish they had split up Calgone (I always end up laughing though): this is just 'nit' picking. Originally I couldn't understand the point of 'Medicine Magic' (which seems to be the case with most people; actually I still don't see the 'point'), but now I love it; the drums and bass are fantastic and everything else just fits, enjoy the words, but marvel at the music.
From a musician's point of view, great bass, great syncopated drums, the odd jazzy guitar, then there's, funk, metal, hip hop melody, etc. These guys obviously have great diverse musical tastes.
Summary: Original, Eclectic, Continually interesting, Great Musicianship, Fun, No bad tracks, Superb.

Nothing was changed from the original release!!! 28 novembre 2001
Par Jeff Johnson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Incubus is now riding a wave after their Make Yourself album, so they have re-released Fungus Amongus and Science. There is nothing different than the CD, which was previously released, but the CD itself is simply great. Then never rerecorded Calgone, which was cut suddenly four minutes into the track with a speech about who's fault the cutting of the track was. Mainstream songs in an album before anyone knew about them! Full of great funny vocals, rock, unique tracks, like Magic Medicine which is a fantastic track for those of you that like turntablists! Some other great songs on the CD are Favorite Things, Calgone, and New Skin (which a live version appeared on Family Values 98). Another song to note is A Certain Shade of Green, which is a very sarcastically funny song of how slow things move in the singer's world. Even the hidden track after Calgone is hysterically funny, original and must be heard!

SCIENCE makes me think. 29 août 2002
Par Bex - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
After getting hooked on Make Yourself and Morning View, i decided to take a step back towards Incubus' more humble beginnings. I was afraid that i wouldn't like S.C.I.E.N.C.E., but within an hour, I was hooked again! In my opinion, DJ Lyfe's presence was too obvious (too much mixing) but that is the only criticism i can come up with.
Each song has it's own unique beat and lesson. "Redefine" tell us that we should take life into our own hands and "paint whatever picture [we] like." "Idiot Box" exposes our dependence on television, and "Favorite Things" reflects the belief that religion confines our lives. These are great songs to start a conversation! Not to mention great to listen to! There are great guitar riffs and steady drum beats and vocals that hypnotize. Incubus can't be beat!

"My open eyes see a zombified, somnambulist society." 12 juin 2007
Par Graeme Wallis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Incubus' first great album is ironically also their last. Depending on how you view their formative demo-compilation Fungus Amongus, it is also their debut album. Signalling the consolidation of the funk-metal stylings of Fungus Amongus and the E.P. Enjoy Incubus, with the backing of a major label (Immortal/Epic) the southern California youngsters found themselves with more studio time, more experience and ultimately more scope than ever before to flex their creative muscle.

Commonly credited as the brainchild of (since-fired) bassist Alex Katunich aka. Dirk Lance, S.C.I.E.N.C.E. (origins of the title remain a mystery) is a ferocious and fascinating hybrid of metal, funk, drum and bass, hip-hop and jazz fusion. Indeed, Katunich's rapid-fire slap/mute style forms the basis for many of S.C.I.E.N.C.E.'s most recognizable pieces, most notably 'Redefine', 'New Skin' and 'A Certain Shade of Green'. His laid-back, groove-heavy playing on tracks such as 'Glass' and 'Deep Inside' also showcase the burgeoning talents of drummer Jose Pasillas on a percussion-laden record.

Frontman Brandon Boyd is the figure least recognizable from Incubus' current incarnation however, with his staccato quasi-rap vocals; tabla, djembe and didgeridoo playing, and lyrics concerned with social belligerence, spiritual rebirth and higher states of consciousness belying his current status as a supermodel-dating, GAP Jeans poster boy.

Turntable-ist DJ Lyfe also shines in his final outing with the band (he would later be fired, with unconfirmed reasons for his dismissal ranging from disputes over publishing monies to Lyfe having slept with Boyd's girlfriend) adding a much-imitated aspect to the band's frenetic sound.

Comparisons with Faith No More not withstanding, S.C.I.E.N.C.E. is often overlooked with regard to the band's catalogue, yet it stands as their only truly accomplished work, with subsequent records ranging from inconsistent (Make Yourself, 1999), to middle-of-the-road (Morning View, 2001), lacklustre (A Crow Left of the Murder, 2003) and unadventurous (Light Grenades, 2006). S.C.I.E.N.C.E.'s most unfortunate legacy however, stands as its considerable contribution to the popularisation of the loathsome 'nu metal' genre.
