I Miss You
To see you when I wake up Is a gift I didn't think could be real To know that you feel the same as I do Is a three fold Utopian dream You do... See the rest of the song lyrics

    Even at their most acerbic or delicately downplayed extremes, Incubus are compelling. [#184, p.137]
  2. At times, these musical meanderings verge on self-indulgence and callowness.
  3. Their movement toward non-nooky maturity continues here with tunes like the melodic and soaring "Wish You Were Here" and the dramatic "Warning"--each showing a more reflective and poetic side than before.
  4. Alternative Press

    There is very little here that makes any sort of meaningful connection. [Dec 2001, p.85]
  5. Blender
    60
    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]
  6. Morning View's insurmountable flaw is that Incubus sell themselves as an Intelligent and Sensitive rock band, without actually appearing especially intelligent or sensitive.

    Excellent album. What made it bad was the odd hard rock track and the mix of beats.

    music made for MTV and modern rock radio. Lifeless and dull drivel. 14 year-old teeny-boppers would realy like this.
