A Crow Left of the Murder... [CD + DVD] ~ Incubus
4.0 out of 5 stars Still Good..., 5 Mar 2004
I've loved the last few Incubus albums and I think this one will grow on me in the same way. I say that because I feel that it isn't as immediate as Make Yourself or as easy as Morning View, however, that is possibly because this album seems much more varied and more complex than before. They've obviously changed the way they work with the new line-up and as a result they've matured (which doesn't mean "become boring").

I have to admit that I was a little disappointed by "Untouchables" and when I saw them at the Docklands Area it was definitely the old ones that were superb!
I hoped this album would be good after hearing "Did My Time" and "Right Now" and it is!
The drums and bass are as tight as ever, the guitars rumble and soar and JD sounds absolutely incredible on some of the tracks.
You've got to buy this record if you like metal!

I have to admit that I was a little disappointed with the last album and when I saw them at the Docklands Area last year it was the older songs that sounded superb. However, after hearing the single "Did my time" and then "Right Now" I felt that the album would be more metal and less "experimentalism" and it really is! I still love the tight drums and bass, the heavy guitars and on some of the tracks JD is incredible on vocals. Some may argue that it isn't anything "new" or "different", but when something sounds this honest, loud and raw it really doesn't matter! I definitely recommend TALITM as a return to form to one of the best bands of the '90s. I know I'm ready...
