EXCLUSIVE - "Thieves (Live In Studio)"


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

Format:Audio CD
Talk about a band that really divides fans. You can basically divide all Incubus fans into the following groups: The Pre-Make Yourself crowd, the Pre-Ben Kenney fans, the Pre-If Not Now When? fans, and the I love everything they do fans (myself included). No matter what group you're in, or if you don't know where you fall yet, this is a great collection for all fans. The other reviewer made the comment about "Monuments and Melodies" and this release being another rehash of the same old greatest hits. It partially is, partially is not. Monuments and Melodies is more like "hey, here are our most successful singles, plus a couple new songs and harder to find non-album tracks." This collection is a little bit different. There are many of the same songs, but this release is far more comprehensive because it actually contains songs from their entire career from Fungus Amongus to If Not Now When? including: all singles and B-sides plus some non-single fan favorites. This includes lesser known singles like "Agoraphobia" and "Make A Move" and delves deeper into their back catalog than Monuments did by including studio tracks from S.C.I.E.N.C.E. and Fungus Amongus. As a long time fan of the band and all its different phases, I'd say this is a pretty solid, balanced collection of tracks spanning their entire career. So if you find a particular set of songs you like, you can find the album they're on and go from there discovering the rest of their music. My only critiques would be to switch "Version" with "Take Me To Your Leader"(it's surprising it's not on this set because it has a music video) and add super fan-favorites "Sick Sad Little World" or "The Warmth," but besides that, this is a great collection for a beginner.

1.0 out of 5 stars ...It's not new.... November 5, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Don't quite understand why this collection of already released Incubus material was titled "Incubus's New Album." They already released a greatest hits album a few years ago as the other review told you. False advertising. Buy it if you neglected to buy Monuments and Melodies. If you're looking for something newer, that came after If Not Now, When? then this is not at all what you're looking for.

Isn't this pretty much exactly "Monuments & Melodies" from 2-3 years ago? M&M came with new songs on it to. I don't understand the point of this album. Go buy Monuments & Melodies instead of this. (

I'm not 1-staring the music. Incubus is obviously amazing. I'm 1-staring Amazon's lame attempt at making money off this.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Album That's Mostly for Starters July 28, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'll just come right out: I already have most of this band's albums (I even have Fungus Amongus - but I am still missing Morning View, among others.), but I will say this: This album is a great starting point for fans just discovering this band, as one reviewer already said. The reviewer also said this band went through "many phases" (I'm more of a pre-Make Yourself guy, but will listen to their other stuff - MINUS If Not Now, When?). You can see that their sound has underwent major changes - from the ever-present scratching and heavy styles on the S.C.I.E.N.C.E.-era songs to soft, almost ballad-like songs on If Not Now, When? Also, a couple songs from Monuments and Melodies appear on here, plus more non-album tracks that can be hard to find (this is NOT a reissue of M&M, everyone - songs from S.C.I.E.N.C.E. AND the Enjoy Incubus EP - but not Fungus Amongus - are included, making it at least a little different from the greatest hits issue - "Take Me to Your Leader" should be on here, though). So you have three choices: Either get Monuments and Melodies and get a second disc full of rare tracks, buy The Essential Incubus and get the earlier years of their music + tracks not featured in the former, or buy both if you are a hardcore fan who likes everything this band puts out. 5/5.
