    5-0 out of 5 stars you have to hear it for yourself!!
    311 is the greatest band that has ever been, is, and will be.Their unique blend of musical styles is so apparent on this CD, and the energy on it is no less than it is at one of their concerts.If you want something to take you back to the greatest experience of your life (a 311 concert, of course!), _this_ is the CD for you! :-)


    5-0 out of 5 stars This CD is sik-
    On the way to the 'Sprite Liquid Remix Tour' my friend threw this cd in and i thought it was great....didnt know many of the songs but it sounded nice....when we get to the concert 311 was on the bill and they were the best out of the 6 groups there (3 rock and 3 rap) it was unbeleivable so i went out and bought this cd...it just puts me back in the mosh pit

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good But Missing The All Time Fan Favorite
    This is a great live album with alot of great tunes like Applied Science with the extended drum solo.Some of the songs are a little slow but still great.On here, you can find the fan favorite cover or Human Rights' Who's Got The Herb? which is a non album track found on the Hempilation:Freedom Is Norml benefit compilation.Also, Tribute, a non album song from the blue album sessions from ETSD.The one flaw I'd say this cd has is the absence of the all time fan favorite Fu88 the Bullshi8 and the more little known Summer of Love.Still this is a great album that doesn't deserve a Parental Advisory or and edited version (then again, nothing does).I own the regular one. ...

    Editorial Review

    Despite the advent of the '00s, thoroughly blunted longhairs wearing three-quarter-length T-shirts still boot around the suburbs in painted vans listening to roaring metal. Fittingly, a whole new crop of post-Dazed and Confused-era stoner rockers--Fu Manchu, Monster Magnet, and arguably the kings of them all, Queens of the Stone Age--provide a shredding contemporary score for righteous three-finger devil salutes. On Songs for the Deaf, core members bassist Nick Oliveri and singer-guitarist Josh Homme (also see Kyuss) balance pure guitar-induced carnage with more complex, though no less aggressive, speed rock that whips by so fast it creates its own breeze. Opening with the 90-second "The Real Song for the Deaf"--a cheeky and amorphous bit of bloopy electronica quite possibly recorded at the bottom of a swimming pool--the disc explodes with track two, a toxic squall of power chords and now-classic Olivera death howls. It's here the album's recurring concept/conceit is introduced as a generic-sounding announcer from L.A.'s "Clone" radio spits out some psychobabble reinforcing the tired if true cliché that commercial radio stinks. Similar mock broadcasts surface elsewhere, but they're easily forgivable, given the bounty on offer. Homme-powered tracks dominate--the lurching, weirdly springy "No One Knows" is a kind of "Monster Mash" for grownups; the vocal harmony-driven "The Sky Is Falling" is almost dreamy until a small army of guitars surges to the front lines to begin firing. And a lyrically winking hidden track, "Mosquito Song," is either an in-joke of ridiculous proportions or a declarative statement about the level of musicianship lurking just beneath the quaking veneer of the Queens' sound. Either way, genuine excitement comes early and often on Songs for the Deaf. It's a remarkable achievement--a hard rock record so good that it immediately evokes a conspiratorial fervor that makes you want to tell everyone you can about it. Er, job done. --Kim Hughes ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars Interesting, but slightly overrated ?
    Queens of the Stone Age are a tremendeously good rock 'n roll band in the 2000's. Among all the nu-metal crap there still are rock bands left, not rap bands only. Their style is kinda unique in many songs, Josh Homme's cool, sludgy voice and their "small-time", but infectious and groovy guitar style, mixed together is candy for your ears, and there' always a sense of fun in their songs, and I like it, their not a political band, their a fun rock 'n roll band, with roots and influences more from classic rock bands instead of punk bands, and that's why they stand out in the alternative circles too, cause they don't sound like another Pearl Jam copycat, like so many others do. The hit song "No One Knows", is simplistic but catchy as hell, and gives you a great vibe, "Go With The Flow", is also great, and these tracks are perhaps the biggest pleasers, but there's more. "You Think I Ain't Worth a Dollar, But I Feel Like a Millionaire", the opening track is awesome! With it's fast singing and great epic guitar, make a grea tstart. "First It Giveth", is slightly lame, but I love it though. "Gonna Leave You", is a little simplistic and clich├ęd but it works, "Do It Again" sounds like a hockey anthem in my ears, but it's different, cool. "God Is In The Radio", is one of my favs. too, it's brilliant. "mosquito Song", has a really, really nice acoustic guitar, and some great, but perhaps sad singing by Homme. Well, I wouldn't consider this a masterpiece, simply cause there are some weak tracks too, that could've been cut out, but it's a great album all in all, QOTSA play desert-stoner-rock, you actually get a feeling of being in the desert without water, when you listen to it, and that you're really stoned in the desert, ha ha, no but, they have an unique style, and that's a very precious thing, today! Respect!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Just awesome
    The Queens' third album finally sees them tie it all together...the sound, the melody, the tightness, and a cool concept about modern rock radio to boot.Add Dave Grohl's arse-kicking drumming and you have a hell of an album.From the savagery of You Think I Ain't Worth a Dollar.... to No One Knows, the melodicism of Hanging Tree, Go With the Flow, and God is In the Radio....what a record!And the little radio spoofs in between songs are humorous, though they get old with repeated listens.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Puff Daddy hits it big and RO tanks?
    There is something so very wrong with the world when Weird Al Yankovic and Puff Daddy (on much the same level of musical talent) make millions and more in the music industry and a talented band like RO gets nothing.I am a huge fan of these guys and probably saw 30+ shows over a period of 4-5 years and I'm deeply saddened that they broke up.They have such an original sound, an odd fusion of funk/ska/rap/rock you name it, they're so good it makes my teeth sweat.Sadly, this means nothing in the cookie cutter world of modern music, it's a matter of who can scream the loudest (though Dave Gutter could shriek...) or who's the skankiest of them all (hello Spears and Aguilera!), not a matter of actual talent.Our music is lowest common denominator, what will hypnotize the largest amount of people into buying...bleh.Love Underground, Girl Germs, Iron Boots, Long Division, the list could go on.The band had incredible range, a lead singer with some serious mojo and a great presence.

    Best of luck to the guys in RO from the kid in the Yankee hat at every show on the east coast.Cheers.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Must Have
    I've been listening to RO for about four years now and have yet to hear a band to rival their sound.Viva Nueva will stand as their going away album as the band broke up at the end of 2002, they will be missed.This album offers listeners a look at the growth Rustic has undergone in their eight years together."C'Mon" remains their first major label single and MTV video but the driving beat of "Combustable" holds a place as my favorite song on the album and one of my favorite RO songs in general.If you can track them down, check out some of Rustic's earlier stuff or catch a show by the two new bands formed by former members, Paranoid Social Club and Roctopus.To sum up, get this album, get other Rustic Overtones albums and zone out to great music.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Viva Rustic!
    Viva Rustic!

    When I first heard "C'Mon" on WEQX in Vermont, I remember thinking, "Wow, these guys are good, I should get this". I did and if you do too, you won't be disappointed! The reason I'm writing this review at 12:30am instead of going to bed is because this is a truly unique, musically versatile CD. It delivers enough great songs to be a `best of' collection, unlike the normal 3 good songs that should have waited for a few more before the CD was made. Go ahead. Add it to the cart now so I can go to bed... ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A great collection of dispatch songs
    this is the first dispatch cd i bought. i bought after i was at a party where i meet the greatest people to party with and herd the songs "The General" and "Elias". Once i listened to it i couldn't stop. Then i found out just a week ago that Dispatch broke up in July during the same week when i was in Botson where they had thier concert. Though i haven't bought a second cd even though i have had this one for a year and a half i highly recomond the band and get excited when i see my freind put parts of the song up in thier buddy info.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Utterly Amazing
    I have been following Dispatc for a number of years now, and they have become one of the best badns of all time in my book, i just love the harmony, the beat and the rhythms. This new cd added to the dispatch collection is incredible, i just couldnt believe how every single song on the cd was good, not one bad one

    5-0 out of 5 stars DISPTACH DOES IT AGAIN!
    Gut The Van is an amazing album! It includes classics such as The General, Bang Bang, and Elias.Although the quality is not great, it is still good.This is one of my favorite albums and it's a must get for any music fan.Dispatch is an awesome band that brings the goods each and every time. All I can say about Gut The Van is, believe all the positive reviews and hype. ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars I can't believe I'm saying this, but...
    ...this album is terrible compaired to Playmate of the year and Mfzb. I can't quite put my finger on it, but something about "waste of mind" blows when compaired to the later two. Maybe its the fact that every other verse, bridge and chorus is either boring, hard to sit thru or both? Maybe its the fact that this album has little to no pop-punk influence, making it an experimental nightmare? Or maybe its that "waste of mind" is just plain not as good as the others. whatever it may be, I know one thing for sure, this album pretty much sucks all the way thru, and was a huge waste of 11.99 plus tax.

    High Points: Waste of mind, Big Shot

    Low Points: 1-12 (except 5 and 8)

    Rock Bottom: Fly Daze and Bootylicious

    If you're thinking about getting waste of mind because you liked the other two, BEWARE, this album is nothing like them. If you're just starting out with zeebrahead, get Mfzb (their best) or Playmate of the year (a close second) instead and call it a day. This album is NOT POP-PUNK, its boring...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Original and Relevent
    In a period inundated with rap-rock outfits like Linkin Park, Limp Bizkit, etc., Waste of Mind still stands out as a shining example of musical ingenuity and originality. The kicker: it was released in 1998, and still feels fresh. Fusing pop melodies, powerful yet intricate guitar riffs, reggae and hip-hop rhythms, and gripping rap vocals, the album never repeats itself and covers a wide range of styles. Try "Someday," "The Real Me," or "Feel This Way" for a few examples of what Zebrahead has to offer, and avoid if possible any preconceptions you may have developed from their later albums. Waste of Mind remains one of the few rap-rock albums in my collection, because it is convincing and legitimate in a genre laden with redundancy and imitation.

    5-0 out of 5 stars It will put a smile on your face
    Unlike many of the tired, cheesy, boring and annoying rap metal acts that have come and gone; Zebrahead stands out from the bunch creating their own signature sound.

    It's nearly impossible not to enjoy the songs on this album. It will put you in a good mood if your in a bad one. This wild ride of rock, metal, funk, and hip-hop will excite your ears to the fullest. Every track is great, and the songs play off each other well with plenty of diversity. From the moment "Check" takes off, it turns into a thrilling ride.

    Their mix of rap, great lyrics, sweet squealing guitar riffs, crunching metal guitar riffs, funky bass lines, all with full intensity shows that this band has some true talent. Fast songs like "Get Back," "The Real Me," "Someday," and "Bootylicious Vinyl" to sweet chill tunes like "Feel This Way," "Move On," and "Fly Daze" transition so well with each other.

    Don't be swayed away from Zebrahead if you think they are just another played-out rap metal band, they are unique in their own way. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    For all his tattoos and bulked-up frat-boy persona, singer Bradley Nowell had real soul, which made his fatal heroin overdose even more tragic. There's more to this Long Beach, California, trio's debut, released shortly after Nowell's death in 1996, than white suburban punks imitating Jamaican ska music. The band comes up with great songs, notably the catchy MTV hit "What I Got"; spooky dub-reggae undertones, produced by the Butthole Surfers' Paul Leary, to go with the snappy horns; and surprisingly progressive lyrics that attack sexism and other social ills, especially on "Wrong Way." Like the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Fishbone, obvious forebears, Sublime become slightly tiresome after 17 songs, but the band is great in short doses. --Steve Knopper ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A sure buy
    This is one of the few albums that you can listen to every song. Sublime was short lived but the couple albums released are well worth buying.Just press play

    5-0 out of 5 stars Sublime at its best..
    To start off, I got this cd shortly after 40 Oz. To Freedom, which I didn't find to be the "super-amazing" cd that everyone believes it to be. This cd, on the other hand, is amazing. In comparison to 40 Oz To Freedom, this cd has a lot more great songs and a lot less filler.
    Garden Grove: Nice and easy, good track to start off. Maybe drags on a bit too long at the end. 4/5

    What I Got: There is a reason why this gets played on the radio. Basically, a great song and without all the long dragging on. 5/5

    Wrong Way: Personally, I am a much bigger fan of ska than of reggae styled music, which is why I love this song. The lyrics are interesting also. 5/5

    Same In The End: First introduction on this cd to the more punk Sublime sound, and a very good introduction at that. 4.5/5

    April 29th, 1992: The most "hip-hop" of all the songs on this cd. One of those songs that people can love or hate. Personally, it's not one of my favourites. 3/5

    Santeria: This track also gets a lot of radio play. After listening to this, my friend learned how to play it on bass, and he played it non-stop for a week. 5/5

    Seed: Very unique and amazing song. It shifts from heavier punk style to reggae beats very well. Overall probably one of my favourite songs on the cd. 6/5

    Jailhouse: Some people call this a filler track, but I think it is a very good song, except for it is repetitive. 4.5/5

    Pawn Shop: In my opinion, the weakest song on the cd. It is 6:06 of pure boring repetitive guitar with the odd words thrown in here and there. Would be much better if it was about 4 minutes shorter and had more words. -FILLER- 2/5

    Paddle Out: The shortest song on the cd has good drumming and is an interesting song. Sounds a lot better listening to it after 'Pawn Shop'. 3.5/5

    The Ballad Of Johnny Butt: Strong, reggae style song. Normal Sublime song but nothing too special. 4/5

    Burritos: When I first heard this song I thought it was very good and after a few listens wondered why this one did not get radio play that I know of. It has good guitar work and lyrics. One of my favourites if not my favourite. 6/5

    Under My Voodoo: Right from the start this song is dominated by the guitar. The singing goes perfectly with the guitaring and makes for a good song. Very catchy as well, was stuck in my head for a good month. 5/5

    Get Ready: Good song, about doing anything to smoke. Listening to it a few times in a row calms you down. Not spectacular. 4/5

    Caress Me Down: This song has also been played on the radio a lot and it is indeed a good song. The lyrics are a bit crude but you get a few of these with every Sublime release. 4.5/5

    What I Got (Reprise): This song, if possible, is better than the original version. This song goes a lot better at the end of the album than the start. A favourite. 6/5

    Doin' Time: Good closing track. The background music drills into your skull eventually though. Not a song to listen to on repeat but good for finishing listening to the cd. 4/5

    All in all this is a great cd and my favourite release. If you like any kind of music like ska or reggae or softer punk, check out this cd. In conclusion, the cd itself just seems to flow through and is an easy listen.

    RIP Bradley Nowell - February 22,1968 - May 25,1996

    5-0 out of 5 stars completely awesome, their most popular cd
    sublime always made awesome, and well, subliminal music.the reggea rock arrangements on the cd are awesome, these guys could really craft some terrific songs.I really enjoy the whole cd, it sounds so good and there is no filler at all.A lot of people become absolutely obsessed with this band; its easy to see why when you listen to such good songs like "Wrong way" and "Santeria."a perfect addition to you collection; if you like it get all their others cd's, they're all good.Have fun! ...

    Editorial Review

    With valuable assistance from producer Rick Rubin, the Peppers find just the right blend of punk, funk, and hip-hop. Even with a running time of 74 minutes, this 1991 breakthrough has continuity and cohesion both within and across the 17 cuts. Riding Flea's surging bass, Anthony Kiedis delivers his explicit lyrics with a rapper's flair, extolling the virtues (and outlining the dangers) of sex and drugs. Plaintive ballads such as "Breaking the Girl," "I Could Have Lied," and the hit "Under the Bridge" give the album depth and provide contrast to the raw energy of "Mellowship Slinky in B Major," "Funky Monks," and "Give It Away." Rubin masterfully fuses John Frusciante's raunchy guitar with the irresistible grooves. --Marc Greilsamer ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Jeremy Brackeen Is Correct - RHCP Rule!
    I'm glad that Bozo faggot's account was deleted. The Red Hot Chili Peppers is one of the best funk rock bands to ever exist. This album suits as a fine example. "Give It Away" is the definite highlight to such a classic album, and you can never go wrong with Flea's unforgettable bass. "Under The Bridge" is my personal favorite, as it wants to make you cry. That song is so good that it will always be a favorite of mine, especially with Flea's bass. "Breaking The Girl" is another great song like "Under The Bridge", as it is less overrated and very touching as well, but not as memorable. "Suck My Kiss", "Sir Psycho Sexy" (a hilarious song) and "Blood Sugar Sex Magik" are also unforgettable classics on such a great album.

    You may also know that this record is the only one to feature guitarist Erik, while John Fruscinate takes an absence after "Mother's Milk", which is also a classic. A staple to anyone's CD collection. This is rap rock done right. Screw Limp Bizkit, long live RHCP!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Get a life Bozo! RHCP rule!
    How dare you insult this work of art. The Red Hot Chili Peppers are one of the greatest rock bands ever, and Blood Sugar Sex Magik is a classic album. Every song on here is great especially Give It Away and Under The Bridge. Those are the two songs that got me into this album. Breaking The Girl is another great song. It brings tears to my eyes whenever I listen to it. Anthony Kiedis is a great singer, and he sure as hell can rap better than that whiny P.O.S Fred Durst. Flea is one of the best bassists in rock. He can do slaps, pops, I mean anything unlike that loser from Limp Bizkit who just reapeats the same lines all over and over. John Frusciante is a good guitarist who can lay down some cool funky riffs and rip some pretty good solos as well, and Chad Smith is a good drummer as well. Overall this is a great album and every rock fan should own it. RHCP rule!


    4-0 out of 5 stars From a former RHCP addict
    I first got into the Chili Peppers when I heard Californication on my friends cd player when I was maybe 11 or 12. It was right when it came out. I thought, this is pretty cool.

    About a year later, I owned all of their CDs, two shirts, and a sticker for my bass, which I had started after buying this album. My addiction to the Peppers flamed out about a year and a half ago, when I saw them live with three of my best friends, all of whom also loved these guys.

    After I started listening to other types of music, I listened less and less to the Chili Peppers. I still have a giant amount of respect for them, and they are a great band, but from my standpoint, this albums a little long, and gets a little tiresome after the first 11 songs. You should definitely buy this album, it is true that it demonstrates the Chili Peppers at their most "unique" stage. I only wish it was a little shorter. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    The Dave Matthews Band is moving its music forward incrementally. While Before These Crowded Streets offers more of the folky melodies and vaguely international rhythms that made this Charlottesville, Virginia, group a major record and concert draw, it also finds them adding subtle new colorings to the mix. Alanis Morissette guests on two cuts, "Spoon" and the disc's first single, "Don't Drink the Water"; banjo Bela Fleck steps in, too. Most intriguing, however, is the modernist string arrangement from the Kronos Quartet on the driving "Halloween." Matthewsat least partly fulfills his obvious hopes to lead something other than a jam band here; at the same time, Streets should keep his fans satisfied. --Rickey Wright ... Read more

    DMB became a #1 favorite band at one point for me, this album reached a new plateau in their unique style with such songs as crush me, beneath this dreaming tree, stone, and spoon which hasntbeen matched not even half ways with albums made before and ever since.....this album is truely a jem......

    This album took me a little time to get into but it was worth the wait. Most of the songs here are very good. A solid album overall.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Best
    I have nearly all of DMB's cds, and this one has stood the test of time. Though I love Under the Table and Dreaming and Crash, Before these Crowded Streets is the richest CD vocally and instrumentally. I love the African and Native American folk elements on this CD, and the range of songs. There's angry DMB with "Halloween," socially active DMB with "Don't Drink the Water," and then there's the fun, playful DMB with "Stay," that makes me think of the summer DMB concerts I've attended. These songs are great live, and this CD reminds of of DMB's better days. I haven't been a real fan of their latest cds, and when I listen to Before These Crowded Streets, I'm reminded how much I love this band. What I also like about this cd is that you can hear the fiddle, the banjo and the drums clearly on most of the tracks. Awesome cd! ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    No Doubt's 1995 release, Tragic Kingdom, brought Southern California's ska scene to a national stage while elevating the band to star status. An irresistible mix of reggae, punk, and power pop, Tragic Kingdom scored several hits, among them "Spiderwebs," "Just a Girl," and "Don't Speak." Singer Gwen Stefani's looks made the group MTV shoo-ins, but her soaring voice is the real star, as evidenced by such songs as "Happy Now?"--a classic you'll-regret-you-dumped-me anthem that recalls Blondie--and the bouncy "Sunday Morning." Despite recurring themes of pain and regret, Tragic Kingdom manages to somehow feel sunny throughout. --Courtney Kemp ... Read more

    Tragic Kingdom was a huge milestone for No Doubt, and I can clearly see why. The music is kind of complex, but still easy to listen too. By complex, I mean just TONS of vocal layers, lots of keyboard voices/insruments [even a zither sound]. The song are a little more epic and go on a bit, but they're No Doubt. They can do what they want! They hit lots of different genres in this album too. Just shows how much variety they can offer. I'm so glad I got this album back in the day. Now I am a die-hard No Doubt fan. If you don't have this one yet, what you waiting for!!!?

    5-0 out of 5 stars Im not under 13 it just wont let me review otherwise
    hmmmmm 10 million records sold says it all dont you think?

    5-0 out of 5 stars Incredibly Impressive
    This is definately No Doubt's best album to date. The songs are bouncy, catchy, and just plain fun to listen to. The band made wonderful hit songs without being dirty and without cursing every other lyric (something I find very cool and interesting...).


    Happy Now (4/5)
    Hey You (5/5--they used a sitar or harpsichord, or something. anyway, the solo is amazing!!)
    Sixteen (5/5 for the chorus)
    Don't Speak (of course...6/5!)
    Tragic Kingdom (4/5--I wish I could shave off the last 2 minutes of this song, cuz it really goes on, but it's an interesting view on Disneyland!)

    All in all, this is THE No Doubt CD to buy. Amazing in every way! ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    As Incubus themselves note about Epic's 2000 rerelease of 1996's Fungus Amongus: "The recording's are basically a snapshot of our band, circa 1993-1995. As even the most discriminating ear could deduce, [we were] still struggling to find our feet." It's a caveat not really necessary for Incubus fans, of which there are now many, thanks to their diverse, unique, andthoughtful brand of funky, sometimes-acoustic rock, exemplified on 1999's impressive Make Yourself. This early effort, written and recorded when band members were in their teens, smacks heavily of Primus and Faith No More fanaticism, influences which, on later discs, are blended into an evolving signature sound. Songs such as "Speak Free," "Trouble in 421," and the aggressive, linear "The Answer" are decent, but not as heavy, well-written, or thoughtful as the material on Make Yourself. Ultimately, Fungus Amongus is a lightweight, casual, fun, and funky morsel for hardcore fans.--Katherine Turman ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Is this ZEBRAHEAD or incubus. Cause it sounds like ZEBRAHEAD
    This album has a lot funk too it. Incubus sounds a lot like the band ZEBRAHEAD(which is an awesome band) So if you like funk music, hell if you like ZEBRAHEAD by all means get this album. After this album all the other major albums are all anti funk music.

    5-0 out of 5 stars one word only describes this album....."crazy"
    "fungus amongus" is a gem, its crazy, its pure, its amazing, its incubus! every incubus fan knows that with every record you can expect something new...but still have their sound/roots. "fungus amongus" has so many elements..jazz, metal, funk, rap, phsychadelic,...and add their own twist to it all and its just mind boggling. at first listen you will say to yourself.."what am i listening to?". but when the cd's done you will say "that was amazing!"..even though "fungus amongus" sounds like nothing you've ever heard of...you can sense major influences from primus, red hot chili peppers, faith no more. its so crazy to think that this band was just starting out...or in brandon boyd's terms.."finding their own ground". you wouldn't imagine that they sound like they do today. brillant and crazy...words cannot describe this album.

    4-0 out of 5 stars The Incubus we all know and loved
    Fans of the recent radio friendly version of Incubus will probably write 1 star reviews, because they tend to be people of limited tastes who's music preferrence is reliant on what has the most rotation on Mtv or radio. They won't understand this. But for us true Incubus fans, this is a pleasant trip down memory lane. This is perhaps the band at their most raw period, as most of them where barely 18 when this album was recorded. Fungous Amongus is a fine example of the playful California funk metal scene of the early 90's, where people lived off a steady diet of Faith No More, Primus, Chili Peppers and Infectious Grooves. There is no DJ in this band and no real hip hop influence at all. Just a 3 + 1 approach. The shifts from head bopping jazzy jams into headbanging hard rock numbers is something that really characterized the early Incubus. My personal favorite is Trouble in 421, which begins as a really goofy Frank Zappa-like number before Mike Einziger explodes with an inspired and ripping guitar solo followed by a powerful chorus.

    If you like the water-downed pretty boy rock of Morning View and A Crow Left of the Murder than please stay away and don't write insipid 1 star reviews, because this is where the real Incubus began, a band that was much more concerned with rocking and writing good tunes than pandering to the Top 40 crowd. ...
