  1. One band I can ALWAYS rely on to put out something that pushes the sound further while still sounding like the original stuff is 311. I cant freaking wait for that album.
  2. There are hints of greatness but I really was expecting more. Its much more "happy" and radio pop friendly than I thought it would be considering the interviews leading up to release. They always called it a dark,heavy record. I will say tho that No fun brought such a huge smile to my face. To hear those thick guitars again was so nostalgic. I wish the album had more tunes like this one. Album highlights are No fun,loneliest and throw out the map. Loneliest qualifies because its one of the darker tracks on the album and I always love when incubus do darker sounding stuff. It sort of reminds me of a more modern version of aqueous transmission. I expected to hear more riff oriented stuff as pointed out by the producer and I dont think there really is anything that can be considered "riffy". Besides the lack of riffs my second biggest gripe are the verses. Mike has always been a master at making moody,effect laden verses. A few songs on this album start ok than the verse comes and its mostly a bassline with minimal guitar work. I hold incubus to very high standards and I know we will never get to hear the "old" incubus sound ala make yourself and morning view again. Apparently Dirk was a HUGE influence on the early sound when even there soft songs were masterpieces making such complete records that had everything. I wouldn't call this album a back to roots album at all but it is a step in the right direction I guess.

    Actually your wrong. I was expecting more of a morning view/crow vibe which it is a far cry from. I hear tiny vibes from both albums sonicly but are you really trying to tell me you think ANY of these songs so far stand up to ANYTHING from those 2 albums? Those 2 albums musically were so far ahead of all these singles so far. Musically,structure,uniqueness,melody's etc etc. Your right about opinions but I just find it such a stretch. Its hard for me to understand how people could think this sounds comparable to those albums. Sick sad little world and basically anything from the two albums you mentioned just destroy any of these singles. The one thing I notice that reminds me of those albums would be the dj's sound effects. Very MV esque but everything else is not. Ive always held incubus to a high standard musically especially after a crow but compared to that these songs are cookie cutter radio fare besides nimble bastard. I thought Trust fall from the ep sounded much closer to what I had expected. I also like you never thought the band was gone. I actually enjoyed INNW and adolecscents was great. If i was the first person to hear these songs again minus nimble bastard and I had to describe it I would say It sounds like a slightly more upbeat version of INNW. And by the way, MV is my favorite incubus album. You really think instrumentally besides a few noises it sounds like that?? Now I think I would be much more forgiving if the album seemed to have a solid mix of heavier/softer tracks like MV did perfectly but sadly hearing the album preview I fear thats not the case. I will admit tho hearing No fun made me giddy as it had the aggressive guitar sound and vocally was reminiscent of MV. Loneliest also sounded like a more modern version of aquas transmission or something.

    I just want that song loneliest and im good. I do find it odd people are going crazy saying incubus are back. Besides nimble bastard this just sounds like the boring uninspired softer songs from prior albums. I actually would say most of the softer songs from if not now are better than this. And as far as single choices go im surprised that no fun wasn't one of the first released as it seemed to be one of the only songs that sound anything like the older stuff.
  5. track 9 is the same as track 8. I hope its not a pressing issue and just a bad rip.
  6. TO each there own. I actually feel the exact opposite. Because everyone praises those first 2 albums so much i tried hard to like them but besides a few songs nothing stood out. Than node came and it attracted me more but I still thought the songwriting needed more variation and focus. Than mesmer dropped and Its pretty much exactly what id hoped for. After the amazing equinox ep I expected this album to deliver and I think it definitely succeeded.
  7. Hearing no fun made me cream my pants. Just a little disappointing the rest doesn't seem to be "heavy" like they keep saying.
  8. single

    im not so excited after these singles. They sound like b sides from there best album.
  9. Never heard these guys but this is sounding really promising! Im really glad I listened to the preview as almost every song sounds great and they seem to cover a wide gamut of styles.
  10. any other album info out there?
  11. Love this band but anyone feel that this album is basically one long song? just minor variations each track.
  12. why does noone care!! such a good band!
  13. Well im happy the guitars actually have some presence and doesnt sound like mush.
  14. Seems like a lot of bands are using the same tone and tuning these days. I keep thinking of sylar. Attilia now dayshell. Still good but a little lacking in the riff department and expected a little more chorus wise especially with shaleys awesome voice. I feel like with dayshell a lot of the riffs that are there just sound all to similar to each other. Open low e chug chug than A# string on 6th fret rinse and repeat all to a speedy tempo. This is only first listen and I still dig it just hoped I would hear a little more growth.
