    I'm just getting into Incubus and I like what I hear so far.

    I noticed a DVD of theirs cheap in HMV - Morning View Sessions, but can anyone tell me what exactly is on there ? Is it fottage of them in a studio, a live performance, vidoes or what ?

    Thanks

    Snap:)

    Only just started listening to them a couple of months ago have have now purchased:-
    S.C.I.E.N.C.E
    a crow left of the murder
    Morning View
    Make Yourself

    Make Yourself is currently my favourite out of them all but they're all superb imo. I had science in my collection for ages without spinning it . Decided to give it a go a few months back and realised I was missing out on something special:)

    Does anyone know of other artists of a similar flavour that I've also overlooked?

    Listing is thusly:


    1. Program Start (intro thing)
    2. Pardon Me
    3. Stellar
    4. Glass
    5. Circles
    6. The Warmth
    7. Mexico
    8. Drive
    9. Warning
    10. New Skin
    11. Just A Phase
    12. Nice To Know You
    13. Wish You Were Here
    14. End Credits

    It's basically a small gig with a very intimate crowd - can't be more than 50 people there. The band are in a circle in the middle kind of thing. It's fantastically recorded, excellent performances from them all and Dirk Lance was still with them when it was recorded, non of this Ben Kenny heresy ;) Buy today with confidence.

    Aenima beats the s**t out of Lateralus, although Lateralus is still class!

    I wouldn't say that, but it is fan-fookin-tastic.

    The new Lost Prophets album isn't a million miles away from some Incubus stuff.

    Have to admit though, I was never that into Incubus - my missus is though; she was interviewing Korn at a gig in about 1996 and Incubus were supporting, she's been into them ever since.

    Yeah, and I have "The Grudge" against you ;)

    I think we can agree that Aenima and Lateralus are amazing in different ways. I know they're by the same band, but I think they're entirely different beasts; which one I prefer at any moment in time normally depends on my mood.

    Ok, we agree then. I wouldn't want to drag this thread on any longer. ALTHOUGH Aenima was Tool's 'breakthrough' album and was 5 years before Lateralus, but as I say I wouldn't want to drag this on any longer so let's just say that I'm right :D

    We could say that but then, by your argument, Floyd's breakthrough album Saucerfull of Secrets was better than DSOTM (which I'm sure many view it as, but the majority would argue) or that Incubus's "Make Yourself" was better than S.C.I.E.N.C.E. or The RHCPs "Californication" was better than "Blood Sugar Sex Majic" and....

    Yeah, I'd hate to drag this one out too :D

    Yes :D


    No, I must only use my powerful laser eyes to defend from true evil, like White Stripes fans.

    I'm going to allow that one musical transgression from you Ed. But just one.

    Thing is Aenima was a pretty crap recording compared with Lateralus. I think Aenima is the better album musically, if only the recording was better.

    Thoroughly enjoying the Perfect Circle Cd's (Mer De Noms and Thirteenth Step) I purchased :)

    What are the best Mr Bungle and System of a down cd's to get. AMG gives Toxicity a good score is that a good place to start?

    cheers

    Hawk

    P.S. Does anyone know when Interpol's new cd will be out?:smashin:

    Toxicity is pretty good, you wont be disappointed with that. Disco Volante by Mr Bungle or just go straight to FNM Angel Dust. Mr. Bungle is very different to the ususl run of the mill stuff.

    Mike Patton is doing a gig at the Astoria at the end of this month with the Fantomas and possibly/probably The Melvins.

    lol certainly wouldnt call apc similar to incubus but ah well :) in fact i think incubus have a pretty unique sound that isnt that comparable to many others.. still love both bands tho.

    tool are also class, cant wait for them to go touring again! chevelle might be worth a look if you like the tool sound. i personally believe that the songs on aenima are better but i prefer listening to lateralus as an album. i find that i just get impatient listening to aenima after hooker with a penis has finished before aenima itself comes on

    personally wrt to soad i prefer toxicity over steal this album, i havent heard their first album tho. either of those two are a good start really

    slightly diff tangent as well but if u havent checked out at the drive in i thoroughly recommend them - im really enjoying relationship of command atm - logically the mars volta would be someone else to look at if you like them.

    Just got back from Birmingham, having seen them at the NEC last night. Crap venue, but the fact that it was absolutely rammed and they TOTALLY ROCKED ASS made up for it. :D

    It was crazy... I've seen them a couple of times before and they're always awesome but this time they've really come on massively - you can tell there's been some serious jamming/practising going on! Especially Mike - wow, he's really a force to be reckoned with now. At points Brandon played guitar (suprising, but obviously out of necessity considering the doubling-up on the album) and Ben Kenney even did a bit of shredding on snare drum! They covered Whole Lotta Love with Kilmore spazzing out on decks over the top over the top, and stunned everybody by momentarily breaking down into Kelis' latest single! :eek:

    Couple of criticisms though - Kenney is a great addition and really brings a lot to the table, but he mainly uses a pick and Dirk Lance's slap and fingerstyle chops were really missed at points. Him and Mike sound a little too percussive at times that really begged for some honkin' finger-work. It's something which doesn't really come across on ACLOTM but when you hear them live it's a bit irritating.

    The other thing is that Brandon Boyd is so totally effortless now that he barely flinches, even when belting out A Certain Shade Of Green and 10,000 people are jumping up and down, flailing their arms. I wish he'd thrash about a bit more like he did when he had dreads; it almost seemed like he was miming sometimes. The incredible vocals just don't match his chilled-out posturing!

    Minor quibbles though - all in all, yet another unbelievably impressive display of awesomeness. Oh... and they played Summer Romance for the first time in ages, YAY. :D

    MuFu.
