Biography

Success is a devilish opiate. A swift and heady drink that goes down smooth at first, and then starts to burn your throat and rattle your bones. Only to leave crater sized holes in your constitution the next day. We all love a good success story, don't we? But interestingly, what usually makes it 'good' are not the 'good' things about the story. No. It's the bad things ... Read more in Amazon's Incubus Store

Product Description

Incubus Morning View Canadian CD album

Amazon.com

Though Morning View follows hot on the heels of Incubus's breakthrough single, "Drive," it doesn't feel rushed. After all, their previous album, Make Yourself, was released nearly two years ago. Like fellow Los Angeles metal pioneers System of a Down, Incubus find themselves lumped in with the nu-metal fraternity merely because they're young(ish), angry, and very loud. That's more than a little unfair, because their sound owes more to the clever and creative funk-metal of Faith No More and the Red Hot Chili Peppers than the faux-rap posturing of Limp Bizkit. In fact, songs like "Nice to Know You," "Circles," and the excellent "Blood on the Ground" display real maturity. But that's not all that sets Incubus apart: on "I Wish You Were Here," "Just a Phase," "11 a.m.," and "Mexico," they show an uncharacteristic willingness to tread softly, using acoustic guitars and touches of strings to make less noise, but more impact. Some could call it selling out, but it sounds more like growing up. Morning View is a leap forward for a band that continues to get better with each release. --Robert Burrow

It is a great song and just kinda makes you feel good.

Brandon Boyd has a great voice, and Mike's guitars really carry a strong sound.

The new Incubus CD "Morning View" is a great album.

I love Incubus. You know what song made me a fan?..*gasp*.."Drive"! I know there's a tendency with Incubus fans to think that everything they did before "Drive" became popular was awesome (which it was), and everything they've done since then has been terrible (which is hasn't). When "Morning View" came out in October of 2001, lots of people accused them of "selling out" or "going soft". The album definetly has a consistent mellow tone that their previous albums lacked, but it was expected; the album was recorded at a beach house in Malibu (or some exotic location). It's kinda tough to be angry in that type of picturesque setting. People also accused them of purposely trying to replicate the sound of "Drive" by writing softer songs, but "Drive" didn't blow up in popularity until spring/summer of 2001, when this album was probably 90% completed already.
The point is, it's a natural evolution in sound. Either embrace it, or go listen to S.C.I.E.N.C.E and stop whining. I'd much rather see a band evolve and expand their sound, as opposed to making the same album over and over again (kind of like Godsmack, Linkin Park, and other modern rock mainstays do).
Anyway..
1. Nice To Know You
The second single, IIRC. And it's a perfect example of what makes Incubus such a great band - here's a song with an unusual mixed time rhythm, lots of tempo changes, and weird lyrics (about lead singer Brandon Boyd regaining feeling in his arm again after an extended period). Yet, the chorus has an incredible hook, making the song totally radio friendly.
2. Circles
Heavy verses with a heavy melodic chorus. Nice harmonies in the "What would it mean to you" part.

Well, after some of the reviews I have read, I see that alot of people failo to notice the real musicality of this album compared to their previous efforts. Sure, Make Yourself (M.Y.) was their breakthrough album, which is good, but Morning View (M.V., for short) stands high above the rest. Although cheesy, I'll do a run down of the songs in a 0-5 basis.
1. Nice to Know You (4.9/5) This was the perfect opener, it shows that DJ Kilmore is more about sculling the water, not necessarily making splashes.
2. Circles (5/5) I love the guitar line.
3. I Wish You Were Here (4/5) Good song, too much airplay ruins this song for me. The same thing happened with Hash Pipe (Weezer). It's a great song, but with MTV and the radio networks, it gets overplayed, and when you hear it on the album, it isn't the same. Oh well.
4. Just A Phase (5/5) Finally, something experimental. The first 3 songs basicall followed the Incubus tried-n'-true method, which is good. Phase uses different elements that the previous albums haven't.
5. 11 A.M. (5/5) No explanation necesasary.
6. Blood on the Ground (6/5) This is byfar the best song on the album. Its upbeat, it displays all of their talents, especially Brandon's singing and songwriting abilities. I'm such a loser that I write the lyrics of this song on my text books when I get bored....
7. Mexico (5/5) Similar to Drive, but better, because once again, it displays Brandon's improvement of being a songwriter and a singer, not a screamer/yeller, like what happens in most rock bands nowadays. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but this album takes the road less traveled.
8.Warning!

I never thought I would be able to say that with a straight face, I guess the pigs are flying now...But anyways, Incubus really achieved their pinnacle of success last year with the hit "Drive", and though I did enjoy the song I never thought to buy the album. Until one fateful day in the record store, there was "Morning View"...hmm interesting hey why not...so I picked it up and gave it a listen. Lyrically very impressive, unlike other "Rap Metal" bands (I don't put Incubus in their category, being that there is no rap involved besides the DJ influence) Incubus puts effort into what they do, not garbage. Brandon Boyd's vocals are definetly something to be admired, the guitar and bass playing will also delight any rock fan. And believe it or not, the sampling and scratching mixes in quite nicely and adds to the unique sound of Incubus. 2001 was rocks come back year, and Incubus was there to help see it through

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.
