4 A new directiondanielreid | 13/07/2011 | See all danielreid's reviews (1)If you are looking for an Incubus album that sounds exactly the same as your previous favourite, you clearly don't understand Incubus' work. This album is as much of a departure from Light Grenades as A Crow... was from Morning View. Incubus have moved on, and if you haven't, it's certainly not the band's fault.If you are looking for an album laden with melody, new sonic experiences and a new perspective on the world, presented in some incredibly catchy choruses, then give this an honest chance. Judge it based on itself rather than your preconceptions of what an Incubus album should be. Incubus have made an album that most will jump to say is "mature". I will reserve this judgement as I'm not entirely sure it is more mature than their previous albums. I will say that inspiration is clearly coming from a completely different place than it did in the late nineties, which I find refreshing and especially brave from a band whose fan's are constantly yearning for their alternative/funk metal days.Although I would have only given it 3 stars upon first listen, the more I listen to it, the more the songs make complete sense as the next progression for Incubus. I feel like in a few weeks I'll regret not giving this 5.
