For the Love of the Music...LOOK ALIVE!

"This CD/DVD really depicts the musical talent and passion that Incubus conveys as a band. The CD ranges from bossanova to african/tribal sounds to accompany the movie. The scenes between the songs show that the band isn't afraid to show thier true selves. It almost seems as if they don't put themselves on a pedestal over anyone else, including the listener. One of the scenes shows how each and every band member is not afraid to shake hands with thier biggest fans and it actually makes it a touching scene to see.
I recommend Look Alive to anyone who has never seen or heard Incubus live. Or if you just want to relive the great feelings you felt during the latest tour, then its definitely worth investing $15 to purchase it. Incubus has always been good to thier fans and this is just another addition to what I hope is a growing collection of Incubus DVDs."
Smile and Look Alive!

"With 'Look Alive', Incubus once again proves what an amazing live band they are.
The different concert clips can seem annoying at first, but you get used to them quickly.
Brandon Boyd's flawless live performance is present and his voice is, as always, amazing.
The whole band is on fire...doing what they do best; playing music.
The in-between "behind the scenes" footage give a great insight of the band on their worldwide tour. We see them experience different cultures in countries around the world.
We also get to follow Mike when he is getting an operation for his Carpel Tunnel Syndrome.
Standout performances include:
Quicksand / A Kiss to Send Us Off
Sick Sad Little World

"I'll get my complaint out of the way first...
WHY WOULD YOU PASS ENTIRELY OVER MAKE YOURSELF AND ALMOST ALL OF MORNING VIEW?!
I love Incubus, that'll never change, but those two albums have some of their best material and they completely shunned it. Aqueous Transmission was great (I'd never heard it live before), but come on, they played almost every song off of Light Grenades. And as much as I truly love that CD I wanna hear a collection of new and old songs, not all new with a couple old songs sprinkled in.
That being said, Look Alive, Incubus' newest DVD offering, is yet another winner. Taking a page from their first DVD, When Incubus Attacks Vol. 2, it's more of a clip show. It's primarily set in Chicago (the shots where they pull back so you get a view of the skyline too are incredible), but there's clips from a wide variety of their winter tour. Mixed in is home video footage from around the world of the guys merely having fun.
I've clearly stated my grief with them passing over my two favorite releases, aside from that though I don't have a lot of complaints. Quicksand leading into A Kiss To Send Us Off still gives me goosebumps...they capture the energy of that song perfectly. Let's be honest though, Incubus is at their best when their adding to their songs, and they do that more than a few times here. The complete overhaul they did of Redefine, contrary to what one reviewer said, is amazing. I heard it at the show I was at but feared I'd never hear it again...not so! The extended jam session in Pistola was great, as was the addition to Sick Sad Little World. The one song that truly surprised me, and probably will most fans, is the fact that they played Nebula. What's more impressive is that Brandon nails every lyric.
Overall, Incubus scores again in the DVD category, once again proving how great they are live. I just hope they wise up with their next one and put songs they clearly love playing live (ahem, Under My Umbrella) on the DVD. Past that, any fan of Incubus is sure to find comfort in this release...if only to have the b-sides Punchdrunk and Look Alive."

"Granted; the first Incubus album i was introduced too was "Crow Left of...," i thought it was a good album. I picked up "Look Alive" and "Light Grenades" and am now hooked on their sound. In my estimation Ben Kenney is a standout bassist.
I fully intend to buy all their more "Funk" oriented albums of the past. But for now I am very impressed by this dvd. I was most impressed by the "Look Alive" concert version of Pistola!"
