Morning View [Bonus Track]

Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
Not all that long ago, America's metal-mongers were engaged in a constantly escalating competition to see who could come across as the hardest, but these days, it seems as if the new crop of bands is more intent on showing off its softness and sensitivity. Unlike their more lunkheaded peers, this California combo handle that dichotomy pretty deftly, putting pedal-to-the-metal with power to spare, as evidenced by the roaring "Blood on the Ground," then pulling over into the scenic overlook of "Mexico," a heady acoustic tune that allows Brandon Boyd to get in touch with his inner crooner. The band tosses plenty of change-ups over the course of Morning View, punctuating ...

Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
Not all that long ago, America's metal-mongers were engaged in a constantly escalating competition to see who could come across as the hardest, but these days, it seems as if the new crop of bands is more intent on showing off its softness and sensitivity. Unlike their more lunkheaded peers, this California combo handle that dichotomy pretty deftly, putting pedal-to-the-metal with power to spare, as evidenced by the roaring "Blood on the Ground," then pulling over into the scenic overlook of "Mexico," a heady acoustic tune that allows Brandon Boyd to get in touch with his inner crooner. The band tosses plenty of change-ups over the course of Morning View, punctuating whiplash-inducing tracks such as "Echo" and "Are You In" with tempo changes, midstream mood swings, and oddball riffs. Boyd, waxing a bit less sarcastic than usual, segues into world-weary Eddie Vedder mode on the torrential "Warning," on which he offers, "I suggest we learn to love ourselves before it's made illegal." The L-word isn't tossed around lightly in heavy music, but Boyd manages to make his listeners believe in its power -- and that's no mean feat.
All Music Guide - Deren Svendsen
Fans who discovered Incubus and their album, Make Yourself, through their massive radio hit, "Drive," may be surprised that the band released a follow-up album so quickly. Yet the reality is that Make Yourself was a definitive sleeper hit, never peaking past the Top 50 of Billboard's album charts, but staying on those same charts for close to two years and in the process shifting over two million units. With each successive single that was released, the band gradually moved away from the nu-metal/Ozzfest crowd they had been initially lumped into and revealed the solid songwriting and talent for a good melody underneath the layers of surging guitars. The lessons learned from Make Yourself have definitely been applied to Morning View. While there is still a fair share of aggressive numbers "Circles," " Blood on the Ground," and " Under My Umbrella" arguably the strongest of the harder tracks, the ratio of softer and mellower numbers have increased dramatically, to the point where hardcore fans of earlier material may be bewildered. For the most part, the transition works. "Mexico" is a sparsely arranged acoustic ballad that gives lead singer Brandon Boyd an opportunity to demonstrate his formidable vocal range. "Are You In" is an upbeat, funky tune reminiscent of Sugar Ray and that's meant in a good way. The most offbeat track is the album closer, "Aqueous Transmission," a tranquil, exotic-sounding ballad that sees the band successfully experimenting with Middle Eastern string arrangements. Not all the experiments gel "Echo", and there is a tendency, especially in the middle third of the album, for the songs to sound too similar in sound and tempo, but on the whole, Morning View is a fine follow-up to Make Yourself and a natural progression in the band's musical evolution. While it may not appeal to fans of the harder material, music lovers who like their rock a little less aggressive and a little more ambitious and, well, sensitive should give Morning View a spin.

Taking chances like this, Incubus might not only claim seriousness -- this rock could call itself progressive.

    The Talent of Incubus

    Every Incubus album is unique. While their music style ranges from fast to slow, their talent shines through in every one of their tracks. Brandon Boyd's voice is strong, clear, and true whether you listen to him in concert or in your car. Every member of the band can play a variety of instruments. And their lyrical style...it's pure magic. Whether you're a hardcore Incubus fan (like me), or only like some of their harder or softer tunes, we should all agree that this band's songs capture you in a way that is all encompassing as well as unique. They are not just a pretty face in music - this band IS talent personified.
