Just because the band takes away the heavy guitar work doesn't mean the new album sucks. I think there are a bunch of nice tracks on it. "Adolescents" has good verses and a decent chorus that sticks. There is also more guitar work in this track than on most of the others on the album. Yes, it's a change from the heavier stuff they used to do but what Incubus album is the same as another? None.

4.5 stars.

This new single had some promise and maybe I thought it was a slower picture of amazingness to come. How utterly wrong I was. I read some of the reviews around the internet and in many ways they're 100% correct. It's almost as if Incubus lost its way completely. Like someone got hit on the head, woke up famous and completely forgot how they got there. The new CD is laughable and nothing other than terrible and forgettable. After listening to the Foo Fighters new CD, I thought "WOW! Bands can still make amazing music." Which only made this situation that much worse. Adolescent is the only song on the entire album that anywhere near resembles Incubus. Where's the unique turn tables mixed against hard charging guitar? This CD sounds like something my Mom would listen to (shes in her late 50s). It's boring, ambiguous and nothing Incubus. People say "well they've matured! Their sound is different." There's a difference between maturing and changing who you are completely. Eminem has come into his own and "matured" his sound.....meaning he made it a better more confident rendition of who he is/was. He didn't turn to Opera and claim it's him "maturing."

There's no maturing to this album, if anything it's just a transition into a bad Coldplay/U2 ballad cover band. They took five years off and forgot who they were. Brandon lost his edge...the band lost it's edge......they're no longer unique in literally any way, shape or form. Before I was worried Incubus would make a bad album.....now I'm concerned Incubus has just become a terrible band.

"...I'm feeling overwhelmed, overwhelmed
It's getting out of line, line, line
I know I'm not alone
Just adolescents, you and I...

Finding an Incubus song as one of Amazon's free downloads of the day was a pleasant surprise. Their music remains sounding modern progressive, though perhaps less so than their Make Yourself days. And a lot less heavy. With this track they remind me a lot of present day Porcupine Tree actually, though perhaps not quite so experimental. Some fans are panning their new album If Not Now, When?, but I like the more mellow tunes I've heard so far. Bands evolve, and their fan-base should at least give new material a fair shake. 'Adolescents' isn't quite representative of most of their latest album and I found it to be one of the better tracks. The uncomplicated lyrics stand out and the instrumentation is quite good. This one is a keeper, though I may only cherry-pick a couple select songs from If Not Now, When? rather than getting the entire album.
