New Incubus - "8"



Best single in years. They became way too soccer mom rock to me.

Re: New Incubus

It's ok. I wish they would go back to their S.C.I.E.N.C.E days. Certain Shade of Green is my all time favorite track of theirs. I have the vinyl of that album, as well.

Such a great album. I also haven't been as interested in their most recent output. Their style and my tastes have gone in different directions.

Re: New Incubus

I love old Incubus. The vocal arrangements on their more recent work hasn't been to my liking. The video/song above has been blocked so I didn't get a chance to hear it but I've got my fingers crossed for this.

Re: New Incubus

Did anyone pick this up? I've been debating it but have been pretty disappointed in this band following Light Grenades. most of the reviews I've seen have been pretty lukewarm.

I listened to it on Spotify. It's better than their last album... but that isn't really saying much.

Ah, I can see that as faint praise as I didn't like the previous album hardly at all...

Re: New Incubus - "8"

I like it - most of it is in that style similar to Light Grenades but there are at least 2 tracks that could have been B-sides on If Not Now When. Highlights of the album are No Fun, Glitterbomb, Throw out the Map and Undefeated. Only a few throw away tracks and a little front loaded but overall a decent return to form...but anyone still hoping for that early Incubus sound, you won't find it here.
