    Incubus

    I've been a big fan of Incubus since Make Yourself came out, I was like 5 years old when I heard "Drive". They have really made some good albums this past decade and looking forward to more in the future. What do you think about Incubus?

    Love Incubus.

    Didn't like If Not Now, When? at first. But, I am impressed that they decided to make an entirely different record than what they are known for. I am hoping that the next record will be a little harder like Make Yourself but unlikely.

    They played over 4 new songs on Letterman recently...



    The rest are on their vevo page.

    Is it just me or is this kicking a serious DFA1979 vibe in the chorus?

    New single.
    These guys really need to stop saying they're going back to their roots because it makes people think SCIENCE and Make Yourself. They did the same thing before ACLOTM.

    This sounds like something in between ACLOTM and Light Granades. It's alright I guess.

    Sounds very crow to me, but I can dig it. I think "Back to their roots" is more in line with Make Yourself days... we'll see soon since the album is coming out way earlier than I expected.

    Song is fine. That's about the best you're gonna get from them now. Sad. Not winning. Baby. Low Energy. Not big league.

Post Morningview releases often went against my taste but t least they always did their own thing. Theres not way i can sanction this garbage.

    I have to respectfully disagree here. I thought despite the fact that Sonny co-produced and mixed the entire album, you can still here the sonic rumbles from Jose's drums in there, along with the rest of the band. I wouldn't go as far as to say they aren't doing their own thing since that was one Incubus song in a LONG time that actually got me singing along and bobbing my head. The song to me is blended pretty dam good, and holds almost every style that the band has brought fourth. It has a A Crow Left Of The Murder feel, along with Nimble Bastard and I can totally deal with that.

    Ok I admit. i wrote that after having a few drinks. The song isn't bad. In fact I think the song is a cool mix of Crow and Light Granades. I has a bit of a Nirvana vibe. I don't like that the drum samples backing the kick and snare or how loud they are. They shoudlve turned the guitar up instead.

    Hahaa, no worries. I realized I used "Their" instead of "There" and that just made me shake my head.

    Glad you found some more redeeming qualities in the track. I do agree with the drums in here after a few more closer listens; the guitar seems to be drowned out like you said, and even in Nimble Bastard. Intrigued about how this album will sound a a whole.
