Incubus
A Crow Left of the Murder



In a season of changes for Incubus, the band evolves with the times on A Crow Left of the Murder. Using a funk metal style so rare among major musicians today, the band causes a little crowd diffusion on tours; they headlined Lollapalooza, Family Values, Ozzfest, and Moby's Area: One.

The boys of Incubus have been together since the 10th grade in Calabasas, Calif., back when fellow Californians the Red Hot Chili Peppers were giving fans some funk metal on Blood Sugar Sex Magik. Ex-Roots member Ben Kenney departed the hip hop world in 2003 to replace longtime bassist Dirk Lance. Bouncing around between mellow or edgy records, using both personal and political themes, the band remains consistent enough to win the fans over on A Crow Left of the Murder.

First single "Megolomaniac" channels the anger of ex-Rage singer Zack De La Rocha in its political rants (You're no Jesus. You're no Elvis. You're no answer). Guitarist Mike Einziger geeks out on a mid-song solo in "Pistola," providing the perfect chaotic accompaniment to the fiery reflections. "Talk Show on Mute" recycles material off 1997's S.C.I.E.N.C.E., cluttering the track with references to Orwell's 1984 and manipulates American-made cliches (Lights! Camera! Transaction!).

Boyd goes off in the opposite direction with "Southern Girl" and "Here in My Room," fusing youthful angst with the blushing romanticism of 2002's Morning View, cracking the mold of this otherwise solid album. Otherwise, this Incubus is desirable enough for bedrooms--and Billboard Charts--everywhere.
