Perfect Summer Soundtrack - Week 8

Is it still summer where you are?  I assume that unless you're in the Pacific Northwest (where it's currently in the 50s!!) that the answer would be a resounding "yes."  Here in H-Town, it's a paltry 100 or so, the perfect weather to hit the beach and do some surfing.  Unfortunately, surfing in Southeast Texas is just about as worthless as rock climbing in Kansas.  But for all of you out there headed out to the beach sometime soon, be sure to have this album in tow.

Incubus: Morning View
Recommended Activities: Skateboarding, Surfing, Beach Trip, Road Trip

I've already made my love for this classic modern rock album known, but now it's time for you to discover it all over again in an environment deserving of its greatness.  Said environment is typically a beach, but there's something to be said for a skatepark (or wherever your bitchin' line may lie) or vehicle as well.

If you're reading Audio Overflow, chances are you keep up with music and have heard Morning View on more than one occasion.  Therefore, I won't go into long, tedious rants about how awesome it is or why you should own at least 3 copies of it just in case.  No, for that you are more than welcome to read my Retro Review of the album, which states thing in a much more eloquent, formal way.  But just so you don't feel deprived of a legitimate reason for reading the last three paragraphs, here's the best song on the album.
