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

3.0 out of 5 stars 5-star CD, but... Oct. 6 2002
By The Guy
Format:Audio CD
Well, I bought this album in October 2001, three days after it came out because it was a "LIMITED EDITION CD, Includes exclusive video footage of the making of 'Morning View' in CD ROM multimedia!!" (Direct quote from the sticker on the jewel case). So after a couple months I saw that my version of the CD was no longer in stores, so then I could say that I have CD with bonus features while you have the regular version. But now I'm angry because they released this with the bonus DVD, which I really wanna check out, but I'm not gonna shell out 15 bucks at a store, unless it's really cheap, for a CD I bought because of its Limited Edition-ness. The CD is great, but the record company is making me mad b/c I'll never see the DVD (none of my friends like incubus).

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 INCUBUS Jan. 5 2005
By urgency
Format:Audio CD
AMAZING CD!!! you have to buy it!! well, actually it takes awhile for anyone who's never heard of incubus to get to realyy like them, they have GREAT guitar by mike, awesome voice by brandon, good bassist ben and the ultimate drummer jose, not to mention the turn table master dj kilmore. I saw these guys in toronto, what a great concert.
Being a long time fan, I'd have to say that this is by far their best cd. Along with this cd theres a dvd which is also reaaaaly good. You might have heard their song "drive". Anyways, give them a chance!

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 Incubus = Amazing June 23 2004
By Mariann
Format:Audio CD
This is an amazing CD for anyone who loves rock music. Brandon Boyd has an incredible voice and the lyrics are really powerful. Incubus' style of music is unique so they stand out from other bands.
Don't pass up this CD. If you're not into heavy metal and don't like bands that are just pop rock, you should try Incubus. And definitely listen to their other CD's- each Incubus CD is different.
great band + brilliant singer = amazing music

4.0 out of 5 stars Yea, it's good, but nothing special June 7 2004
Format:Audio CD
This CD has some good moments, but Incubus seems to have finally gone more mainstream. Drive was a great song, and this CD has a bunch of good songs on it, but it is nowhere near the masterpieces of SCIENCE, Make Yourself, and A Crow Left of the Murder. I like a lot of these lyrics, but the whole sound is a lot more mainstream and less Incubus-like.
