  1. Inevitably, all the shifts in tempo, mood and lyrical slant ultimately hurt Morning View more than they help.

    It's not quite as thrillingly risky as the Deftones' White Pony, but it deserves the collegiate adulation it will likely receive. [Oct/Nov 2001, p.107]
  3. Alternative Press

    There is very little here that makes any sort of meaningful connection. [Dec 2001, p.85]
  4. The coolest thing about Incubus is the way they come front-and-center with their inner little girl.
  5. Morning View's insurmountable flaw is that Incubus sell themselves as an Intelligent and Sensitive rock band, without actually appearing especially intelligent or sensitive.

It showcases the ability of each band member and the cohesive ability of the band as a whole. From beginning to end this album is orchestrated flawlessly in a perfect crescendo of energy and thought. It finishes nicely with "Aqueous Transmission," bringing the overall energy of the album to a calm. This album follows the normal curve of listenability and sophistication. Full Review »
