Product Description

Product Description

Kicking in like a compellingly acrimonious version of Rush ("Megalomaniac") before meandering through what can rather uncomfortably be termed noodly, time-signature lottery jazz-metal terrain A Crow Left of Murder probably identifies Incubus as the average Pearl Jam fan's second-choice for chin-stroking mosh action. Brendon O'Brien (Soundgarden, Pearl Jam) produces and singer Brandon Boyd possibly fancies himself as a bit of a Vedder-esque sage, even blustering "My secret arsenal is an infinite ageless ink well" on the otherwise acceptable metal squawk of "Pistola".

Boyd obviously has big issues with the ills of the world but the lyrics to "Talk Show on Mute" (reality TV is bad, especially Big Brother) and "Zee Deveel" (nice cars, nice clothes and other status symbols are bad) say nothing to enhance mankind's understanding of these twin evils. Incubus are probably on firmer ground with "Made for TV Movie" (like "Megalomaniac" it's an anti-War-on-Terror diatribe) and musically they're to be applauded for sidestepping the prescripted expectations of the metal genre they've been saddled with. Ultimately, however, one's enjoyment of this record swings on whether one considers Brandon Boyd's societal musings to be deeply venerable discourse or just soppy waffle. --Kevin Maidment --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

in a industry inundated with superficial, self-absorbed "music" that time after time proves that most people, even artists, allow themselves to be driven by the almighty dollar, it is always refreshing to hear music (real music) from artists who truly believe in what they're producing. In regards to the other reviews, I think it's great that people still talk about music so passionately. However, to compare ACLOTM to their old albums is doing them a dis-service. To expect a band to relive what you consider to be your favourite album, over and over and over (becoming Nickleback), is to destroy what makes music as exciting as it is. If band's didn't experiment with sound, we wouldn't have The Wall, or Synchronicity, or Blonde on Blonde (and if you don't know what albums i'm talking about then you really shouldn't be talking about music like you know anything)
Basically, ACLOTM gets full marks from me because it is a well-crafted, original, fun album that makes me nod my head think about the world from a different angle... it has therefore succeeded in doing what good music is meant to do.

Sometime in the future, perhaps 20 or 30 years from now, people will finally realize how great this music is. It doesn't really appeal to the average modern listener and takes a few spins to appreciate. The musicianship is off the charts, one of the best guitarists (Mike Einziger, Sick Sad Little World!!! and not the radio edit) in the modern rock era and probably one of the best lead singers of the modern rock era (Brandon Boyd) make this CD special. New bassist Ben Kenney fits right in , i think he'll make more of an impact next album. Drummer Jose is awesome and DJ Kilmore has produced more intricate sounds. This CD really has more of a live feel to it, and is some pretty honest work. Like the prog rock in Pistola, Mike seems like he slips a little on his pedals, but he says that's how he played it so they kept it. Compared to their other albums , I would have to rate this second behind SCIENCE. I'll go through some of the songs for ya.
1. Megalomaniac-everyones heard this song, it rips, almost seems like it should belong on a Rage album (Rage fans may get upset!)
2. Crow left of the murder-catchy up-tempo song, have to wait until the bridge to hear the good stuff
3. Agoraphobia- bass driven, excellent harmonies by Brandon and Ben, almost sound like the beach boys toward the end
4. Talk Shows on Mute-only good thing to say about this is Mike's guitar work, don't like it personally
5. Beware!Criminal- Kind of sounds like crowded elevator
6. Sick Sad Little World-one of the most inspiring tracks on any album of any genre , simply because of Mike's guitar solo at the 3 minute mark. Flat out stunning craftsmenship, it brings chills up your spine, play it loud!!!!
7. Pistola-Progressive rock, awesome bridge
8. Southern Girl- Chick song!

Just like every other Incubus fan out there, I anticipated the new album for a very long time. From what I can tell, I'm not alone when I say I am very disappointed. I bought the cd the day it came out and I've tried to listen to it and get in to it but it just never happened. I put 2 songs from the cd on to my iTunes and took the cd and sold it to a second spin cd store for 3 bucks. In a nutshell...Incubus went from one of the most creative and innovative rock bands out there to the sounds of many of the watered-down, so called "rock" bands you hear on radio today....such as Jet, The Strokes, The Vines, and the Hives...all of which suck. Save your money and just turn on the radio if you really wanna hear this crap. Incubus pulled a Pearl Jam and I'm not buying it. Save your money and go buy the new Breaking Benjamin, Flaw, Edgewater, Seven Wiser, Thornley, Lo-Pro, or Strata (July 27). Hopefully this is a stage and Incubus will return to greatness on their next effort.

I would have to say that this is not their best work to date. But that's what happen when you put out albums like Make Yourself, and Morningview. Nevertheless, this album still got a punch. I've never heard a band where every instrument-- from Chris' turntables, to Jose's drumming abilities-- seem to stand out on their own and yet blend in together so perfectly.
Ben Kenney's addition to the group was smart, I already like him as a member of The Roots, and as part of Time Lapse Consortium (the band's side project with Ben, a member from Soulive, and an 11 piece orchestra). He really made the departure of Alex Katunich (aka Dirk Lance) much more bearable.
Check out Mike Einziger's solo during Sick Sad Little World, it'll totally blow your mind and it's really hypnotizing (ok that was an exageration but I did almost crash my car the first time I heard it). I really missed the little ditties that they do (Magic Medicine, and Jose Loves Kate Moss on SCIENCE....Battlestar Scralactica on Make Yourself, and even Aqueous Transmissions on Morningview), it just really shows them at their rawness.
Anyways, this album kinda talks about political and social issues (listen to Megalomaniac and Talk Shows On Mute), but you still get the recommended dose of Incubus (part heavy and aggressive, and part emo). Overall, I still like the album (I'm also speaking out of bias), but this is an album I would have expected to come out after Make yourself or even after SCIENCE. But I also think that it's their most mature (whatever that means!) album as well.
