Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

4.0 out of 5 stars Bonuses probably for collectors only... June 9 2005
By omar r.
Format:Audio CD
As many have said, the DVD content is pretty limited. Tour videos, a music video, and an abundantly useless discography. It speaks of online offers for a "night time" version of the 'Are You In?' video, but if you're like me and just got the album, the video is no longer available.
As for the music, this is probably what Make Yourself should've been. The sound has improved a bit, and Brandon no longer sounds drowned out by the band.
The best songs are '11 am', 'Just A Phase', 'Mexico', 'Under My Umbrella', and 'Aqueous Transmission'. 'Under My Umbrella' is a nice fast pace sound, with an awesome bridge reminiscent of Porcupine Tree. 'Aqueous Transmission' mixes West with the East and is very effective. The only song I really have a problem with is 'Blood On The Ground'; it just isn't the greatest song ever, and the lyrics are pretty bad.
The best thing about this album is how Incubus tries to display as wide a range as can be managed in the nu-metal-esque genre (yes I know they are not nu-metal). There's dynamic changes, occasional variety in instrumentation, dissonance, and genre fusion (see Aqueous Transmission).
If you're into Incubus, this album gets my highest recommendation (second to A Crow Left Of The Murder).

5.0 out of 5 stars S.C.I.E.N.T.I.F.I.C. Pop July 13 2004
By B
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Come On, It's Incubus! Of Course It's Amazing! June 1 2004
Format:Audio CD
Aahh...How I love "Morning View" by incubus. It's definitely their most chill album, probably because they got to hang out and make music in a kick-ass Malibu mansion and enjoy a few illegal substances. (He, he ; ) !) Every single song is wonderful, but I absolutely LOVE "Echo" more than any other song. It's so beautiful and simple. Just perfect and lovely. But, there are 12 other songs I must get to! "Nice To Know You" is a great opening track because it's one of the more rocking songs, but it still has its mellow moments. Jose's drumming is top notch, as per usual. "Circles" is a very nice rockin' song that get's you riled up from the beginning note. The lyrics are especially great on that one. Karma can be such a bitch sometimes. Anyway, the 1st single, "Wish You Were Here" sounds nothing like Pink Floyd's version, just in case you were confused. It's just a wonderful song that makes me wish I was on the beach with my boys from incubus. Now, another one of my favs "Just A Phase" starts off slow, but you know it's building up to a major sonic explosion and it doesn't disappoint. An amazing live song and just all-around great piece of music. Next, we have "11 am", a more melancholy, I-want-my-lover-back-now kinda song. It's very pretty and Brandon's voice sounds top-notch as always. Then, it's "Blood On The Ground", which is the "angry, pissed off, I'ma kick your ass if you don't stay away from me song" and it's good, but not my favourite. Then, the heart-achingly beautiful song "Mexico". It just might make you cry, man! You can practically hear Brandon's heart breaking into a million pieces as he sings about an incredibly selfish ex-girlfriend. Then, another single called "Warning", which has a really awesome video to accompany it. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Album May 11 2004
Format:Audio CD
True to its title, Morning View does invoke feelings of spirit, culture, seaside beaches, and a certain leafy substance whose name escapes me now. Morning View is light years beyond Make Yourself in musicianship, diversity, production, and lyrics. Although Make Yourself had some amazing gems like "Pardon Me", "Privilege" and "Drive", Morning View is a much better album in my opinion.
For me, this is one of the few perfect albums. There is a great mix of hard rockers and soft songs on this. Incubus have greatly expanded their sound to accompany Middle Eastern sounds and soothing, ethereal string and wind instruments without sounding silly or pretentious. Also the top-notch, effect-heavy production does not sound poppy, but rather just enhances the mood and impact of this CD. There is a certain positive, almost Bob Marley-ish vibe throughout the album, but still, for every lightweight song about pipe dreams (I Wish You Were Here) there is a gritty rocker dragging it back down to the soil (Nice To Know You). The whole band is in top playing form here, right from the hard-rocking opener, "Nice To Know You", quickly followed by the fast-paced "Circles" and the softer, "I Wish You Were Here." The moody, quiet and introspective "7 am" features a spooky bass line, and the truly supurb "Warning" discusses the end of the world and seizing control of your life.
"I suggest we learn to love ourselves before it's made illegal...she called out a warning, don't ever let life pass you by...Haven't felt the way, I feel today in so long it's hard for me to specify, I'm beginning to notice how much this feels like a waking limb, pins and needles, nice to know you goodbye...I'm counting UFOs, I signal them with my lighter, and in this moment I am happy...
