Incubus have obviously grown slightly weary of the sunny sound that made them so popular. 'A Crow Left Of The Murder' is rawer, more organic and substantially darker than the shining optimism of 'Morning View', as if the titles alone were not an indication ('Agoraphobia', 'Sick Sad Little World', etc.). Also, while their change in sound is not the level of say, Cave In, Incubus have altered (but don't be mistaken into thinking this is a return to the maniacal Mike Patton-isms of 'S.C.I.E.N.C.E.'). Whereas before DJ Kilmore would simply scratch away, he now layers sound, often to stunning effect ('Beware! Criminal' & 'Talk Shows On Mute'), while guitarist and Art Garfunkel-lookalike Mike Einziger has let the flashes of genius he had shown on previous releases flourish, especially on the gorgeous final three minutes of 'Sick Sad Little World'. Brandon Boyd, meanwhile, has progressed lyrically, as he proves on the twisted 'Zee Deveel' and the despairing verses of 'Made For TV Movie', and a new bassist (Ben Kenney, stolen from genius hip-hop crew The Roots) seems to have worked wonders, and it shows on the punk-metal of 'Pistola' and the title-track. Pushing further out is the aching 'Here In My Room' and the aforementioned 'Sick Sad Little World', a piano-infused psychedelic amalgamation of all the best points of 'A Crow Left Of The Murder'.
Incubus were obviously not going to reproduce 'Make Yourself' or 'S.C.I.E.N.C.E.' (or 'Megalomaniac' fourteen times over, which is seemingly what many of the other reviewers seem to want), and those that were expecting it are evidently the ones who will be disappointed. While 'A Crow Left Of The Murder' is obviously a great step forward for the band, they are not fully evolved quite yet.

This album doesn't get the gratitude it deserves. At first this album may seem off from what Incubus is usually producing, but when you listen to it a few times you notice that they have progressed. This CD has a fresh, new and great sound to it. It shows the brilliance of Brandon Boyd's song writing skills.
The tracks on this album that stand out the most for me would be 'Megalomaniac', 'Beware! Criminal' and 'Here in My Room'.
Overall I think this CD should get a 5 star because of its originality. A great buy for a any music lover.

Morning View was a very tough act to follow, and unfortunately ACLOTM didn't quite live up to the expectation. "Megalomaniac", "Agoraphobia", "Beware, Criminal" and "Pistola" are the highlights of the album, although "Southern Girl" and "Zee Deveel" are also good. One of the only issues I have with the album are the long, twiddly solos in tracks such as "Sick, Sad Little World" which just go on forever. All in all, a good effort.

Being a pretty big Incubus fan (have all the bootlegs, including the excellent 'enjoy incubus'), I was very pleased to get my hands on an advance copy of this CD.
First of all, in keeping with Incubus' approach to making their new albums, their are hints of new musical direction here, while keeping the distinctive styles of such a diverse band.
Out of all the incubus albums though, this is the one I have been looking forward to the least and that is because of the leaving of one of their founding members - bassist Dirk Lance - who left the band last year. On first listens it certainly seemed that my suspicions had some truth in them. Admittedly opening track 'meglomaniac' is a brilliant starter, but the rest of the album is most definitely not a grabber, so those expecting another 'make yourself' or 'morning view' are likely to be disappointed. However 'megolmaniac' is a glorious opener, a track that bridges the gulf between 'morning view' and this new release. The always colourful palette of guitarist Mike Einzigers playing is very evident here, as is Brandon Boyd's howling vocals (You're not Jesus, You're no f**king Elvis he screams in what is one of the best anti- bush songs I've heard in a while).
After that the album seems to settle into a much more gentle rhythm, though that is not to say it is anything but quiet. bass lines rumble over some superb improvisation by Einziger and drummer Jose, whose latin-flavoured drums are as welcome here as ever. Highlights are difficult to pick out, but 'Southern Girl' is a warm track in a similar vein to 'Echo' from the last album, while 'Agorophobia'is almost hypnotical in its simple rhythm.

I hated this album when I first heard it; I was disappointed and furious about what seemed a huge jump backwards. Unfortunately I'd already bought tickets to see Incubus so I felt obliged to listen a little bit. In my listening and at the gig last night, I discovered some gems. Here in my room was incredible live, and is now one of my favourites Incubus songs - its up there with Drive and the almost untouchable Anti-Gravity. I always loved Talk shows on mute, zee deveel has a great ploddy (it isn't but I cant think of a better word :-( ) undercurrent, Sick sad little word is genius, and megalomaniac is pure adrenaline. Do not dismiss this album, as I very nearly did, it does have sparkly spots. I'm off to find some more.
