EXCLUSIVE - "Thieves (Live In Studio)"

Biography

Success is a devilish opiate. A swift and heady drink that goes down smooth at first, and then starts to burn your throat and rattle your bones. Only to leave crater sized holes in your constitution the next day. We all love a good success story, don't we? But interestingly, what usually makes it 'good' are not the 'good' things about the story. No. It's the bad things ... Read more in Amazon's Incubus Store

Editorial Reviews

Multi-platinum rock band, Incubus, have re-engaged renowned producer Brendan O"Brien (Pearl Jam, Rage Against The Machine, Bob Dylan) to produce the band"s sixth studio album, If Not Now, When? The highly anticipated new album features lead single "Adolescents", an inimitable showcase of the band's frenetic rock roots. Delving further into the album, tracks like 'Promises, Promises' and 'Friends & Lovers' reveal new levels of elegance, space, and psychedelia in the band's ever evolving sound.

"By about three songs into the writing process, I think we began to understand that we were unearthing something new," explains Brandon Boyd about the new album. "If Not Now, When? is our unabashed, romantic, lush, sonic love letter to the world. It s darker, slower, more rich, more refined, and more involved than anything Incubus has birthed to date."

4.0 out of 5 stars Leave your expectations behind July 12, 2011
Format:Audio CD
For all the fans that are lashing out at the lack of heavy music here, I can understand your concern. The heavier element of this band is a part of Incubus which is amazing and a part I agree they have not explored to my satisfaction. It is frustrating to see a band with so much obvious talent and vision move away from what you loved so much about them and what you could see them doing. I love a good guitar thrashing from mike just like anyone else and I can always use an upbeat incubus rocker which shows how useless most mainstream junk really is.
That said, I cannot honestly listen to this album and write it off because it is not what I wanted or expected. If this band were to produce only what everyone wanted, there would be no expression or art to the work. You cant very well ask an artist to create something they dont feel like making. Listening to this album reminds me that Incubus is one artist who is still willing to follow their interests and give us something honest and real. This album expores a whole different side of Incubus, one we have seen on occassion on the last few albums. This softer more personalized album gives us a taste of what Mike can do outside of the large chord world. It shows Brandon's voice and message very clearly, while maintaining a musicial interest with strong core structure to each song. This album is filled with melody and purpose and is built as a whole piece. I think it is unfair, to say the least, to judge this without the perspective of time. All Incubus albums need time to grow and build and there really is so many layers of material here that it will take time to really dig in and see what this album has to offer.

3.0 out of 5 stars A different direction indeed... July 16, 2011
By Kimi
Format:Audio CD
It's no doubt to anyone who (even remotely) knows me that I am a huge Incubus fan. I have been since high school; in love since that first Incubus concert I saw in 2002. If any regret, I wish I had been listening to them sooner on. My obsession and love for Incubus has been the same as it always has since day one. Even after this album's disappointment, I doubt there will be a day where I will up and boldly say, "Incubus blows."

I placed my hopes for this album, oddly enough, on a song that isn't even on the track list. Incubus was headline band for Cypress Hill Smokeout 2010 in San Bernardino, California. They performed "Surface to Air" and I was looking forward to the new album from that point on based on that song. I heard "Adolescents" a while after that and thought it was alright...maybe more appropriate as some sort of Morning View b-side. I hoped that the remainder of the album would move in the direction of what "Surface to Air" had in it.

It didn't.

There have been numerous statements from various members of Incubus talking about this new album and from the start everyone knew it was something that was going to be different than anything they have done in the past.

Lead singer Brandon Boyd dedicated a blog to this topic specifically; [...] ...and that's exactly what it is. Someone listening to the new album might think, "am I listening to the same band that created S.C.I.E.N.C.E.?" I know that thought ran through my mind more than once while listening to If Not Now, When? for the first time. I had to listen to the album while reminding myself that the year is 2011, not 1997.

Mike Einziger, guitarist of Incubus, attended Harvard to study musical composition and impressively infused components of science into his music, notably physics.

3.0 out of 5 stars Where has all the magic gone? July 14, 2011
Format:Audio CD
If you heard the song "Talk Shows On Mute" then you've heard this entire album. While I'm a huge Incubus fan and have been since High School, I just can't help but feel alittle underwhelmed with this release. For the record, I have always been in favor of Incubus changing there sound each album, it's what musically keeps them fresh and keeps the fans guessing, I still remember with great anticipation the release of "morning view" "a crow left of the murder" and "light grenades" and with each of those releases I always felt initially indifferent to what I was hearing, but each album grew on me over time and they turned out to be real gems for our generation of music.

I don't know if the same could be said for this album.

This album is really, REALLY slow, the only "banger" on this album might be "Switchblade" & "Adolescents", and even that is pretty mellow considering what Incubus is capable of. The lyrics on the album are interesting, but the silly tongue-in-cheek lyrics that Mr. Boyd use to write in the past has been replaced with one love-ballad after another (yawn). Even the political antic song "Thieves" while having a good message, just seems bland and boring. I found myself thinking "thats it?" after each song in this album. Some songs show alot of promise, like "Switchblade", I initially felt excited when I heard the tempo of the song, it had potential to be a real uplift-er, but then the song ends and your left feeling empty. Where is the magic? "In The Company of Wolves" which is an obvious Pink Floyd influence, is a saving grace on this album, the build up, bridge and the climatic ending is a good example of what this band is capable of, the same is almost said for "The Original" but not as climatic.

I happened to listen to a leaked copy of the album. I just can't seem to get into the album as much as it's predecessors. Adolescents is very good along with Isadore and Switchblade but over all the songs on this album are all slow. Maybe it will grow on me.
