5.0 out of 5 stars An inspiring album from a breathtaking band!, 29 May 2004
This review is from: A Crow Left of the Murder... [CD + DVD] (Audio CD)
After reading all the reviews from others about how "incubus" have changed. Of course they have, do you really want a band churning out the same stuff album after album, maybe if you are easily satisfied and have no appreciation for real music. Incubus are a genreless band, every Album seems to take them in a different direction and it always turns out amazing, as a group they have truly improved over the years and I honestly don't think there is a band on par with them. The songs on this album have inspired lyrics unlike what another reviewer said about the song megalomaniac. That song was not written about "big business" or things/people like that, it was written about a previous band member (Dirk lance aka Alex) among over people significant to the band. Songs such as "here in my room" are perfect to chill out to but also the lyrics can be perceived in different ways depending on your mood. There is a lot of sexual innuendo in the song "pink tractor beam into your incision". Songs such as megalomaniac, zee deveel, priceless and possibly pistola are a revisit to S.C.I.E.N.C.E, which is very welcome. The new single "talk shows on mute" is a much calmer, insightful song from incubus, with lyrical inspiration from "1984" as seen from the chorus and is sure to be a hit at least in America. Many of the songs are radio friendly but because we are overloaded with pop **** they will hardly ever be played, maybe this is for the best so incubus don't get mentioned in the same sentence as ***. The guitar solo in SSLW really shows off Mikes full potential and songs such as A crow left of the murder and Made for TV movie really show off Brandon's ever improving voice. I saw Incubus live at Wembley on the 15th and thought the songs are incredible live and overall the concert was better than any I've seen previously. Fantastic album and great DVD extras. Look out for an incubus song "pantomime"
