Biography

Success is a devilish opiate. A swift and heady drink that goes down smooth at first, and then starts to burn your throat and rattle your bones. Only to leave crater sized holes in your constitution the next day. We all love a good success story, don't we? But interestingly, what usually makes it 'good' are not the 'good' things about the story. No. It's the bad things ... Read more in Amazon's Incubus Store

Product Description

Product Description

CD Epic, Jewel, Case 13 Track 2003

Though Morning View follows hot on the heels of Incubus' breakthrough single "Drive", in no way does this fine album sound rushed (after all, their previous album Make Yourself was released nearly two years previously). 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 or the Red Hot Chilli 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" barely display any immature attitude problems at all, in spite of being both angry and very loud. But that's not all that sets Incubus apart: on "I Wish You Were Here", "Just a Phase", "11am" and "Mexico", Incubus show an uncharacteristic willingness to tread softly when necessary, 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 who continue to get better with each release. --Robert Burrow

I don't hand out 5 stars lightly but I feel this latest offering from Incubus is worthy. Unlike much of the heavy metal/rock that is being produced at the moment, Incubus manage to create something more intelligent and sophisticated in Morning View. The album has a diversity of sounds, but it manages to remain coherent and polished in every respect. It is one of those rare CDs whose greatness hits you straight away as every track is a masterpiece! Oh, and the actual CD has the best artwork I have ever seen!
The album starts on a high note with 'Nice To Know You' which cleverly combines delicate guitar work with brutally heavy riffs. 'Circles' is equally as heavy with a raging main riff and chugging guitars while 'Wish You Were Here' is a true classic and really captures the spirit of their 'morning view' with its captivating lyrics: 'the ocean looks like a thousand diamonds strewn across a blue blanket'. Following these three heavy tunes come two softer, profound offerings which are truly excellent. 'Just A Phase' has a beautiful instrumental intro and passionate vocals while 11am is lyrically brilliant and is sung with such emotive sincerity.
'Blood On The Ground' is perhaps the most heavy song on the album but it does not escape Incubus' now trademark softer stamp, which is certainly not a bad thing. This is a wallop of raw emotion with slanted, chugging riffs and Brandon Boyd's distinctive yowling vocals. Although weaker lyrically, 'Mexico' deserves its status as one of this album's best tracks. Intricate guitar work from Michael Einziger and sweeping strings give this song a tone of sadness while Brandon's competent vocals complete this excellent song. Utter brilliance. 'Warning' is another excellent track with great harmonies around the 2.

The album at first listen is, to tell the truth, utterly amazing. I found that I couldn't stop listening to it and basically pressed play again as soon as it stopped.
To compare to Incubus' previous releases, Morning View is closest to Make Yourself. To make direct links between songs, Mexico is the closest track to Drive, and Echo sounds a bit like a cross between Stellar and I Miss You. There are many standout tracks on the album and to list them they are Nice To Know You, Wish You Were Here, 11am, Mexico, Warning and Are You In?
This does not however mean that the rest of the tracks aren't any good. I am happy with every track on the album, but inevitably I do have my favourites. Oh and Echo makes me think of my girlfriend.

Having been an Incubus fan for quite a while, and the alternative scene for a great deal longer, this album can't help but dissapoint a fan of the very idea of Incubus... However the reason Incubus are such a joy, is that like the other two aforementioned bands, they embody the purest and most enjoyable ideals of Nu-metal, the splicing of genre's, the recognition of the importance of the emo movement's lyrics, the sampled dynamiscism of hip-hop, and overall, the feel of stretching the very skin of 'Metal' to its limits.
Through earlier works such as 'Make Yourself', and irrefutably 'S.C.I.E.N.C.E', this ideal is wonderfully toyed with, and makes for the rarest of pleasures within nu-metal; albums that bare repeated listening over a year later.
'Morning View' is certainly the sound of Incubus 'maturing', but in so, they've simply become more content to rest within the trappings of their own sound. There is little to distinguish between brash opener 'Nice To Know You' and 'Make Yourself's 'Privelige', or 'Circles' as a deflated 'Make Yourself'...and more worrying is the feeble '11am's aspirations to 'Drive's heartfelt purity. The pondering sense of musical unrest that made the sophomore release so inspirational is here in spirit but the fire of 'S.C.I.E.N.C.

This album is a brilliant step up from 'make yourself'. It's a bit more mellow than all previous albums, 'echo' is an exellant stand out track which is an example of this. However there are some wicked metal tracks like 'circles' and 'wish you were here', which will be the first single off the album. Brandon continues to lay down brilliant vocals, along with the distinctive and origional sounds of incubus whether old or new! This is a superb edition to incubus's string of great release's.BUY IT!!!!

last year i bought the album 'Make Yourself' and i was blown away.
when Morning View came out i was again blown away.
the first track 'Nice to Know You' really sets the scene for the rest of the disc with its metal mental maturity.
Circles is totally different to your typical rock song
Wish you were here is just brilliant, with the awesome vocals of Brandon Boyd, and the lead guitar from Mike Einziger
just a phase shows the range of the vocals
11am is lyrically brilliant
Blood on the Ground is 'RAW' and emotional, not a breakup song, not anger song, but a song about not saying the things that would make a bad situation - sorta
Mexico is damn fine brilliant
echo my least fave track, but brilliant nontheless
Have you ever -also great
Under my umbrella - returning to the cool vocals and riffs
aqueous transmission - strange at first, then you realise how understatedly brilliant the song is
