January 12th, 27 replies Release Date: Everyone has liked bands in the past that they regret, and a lot of times they like these bands back when they didn't know that much music, and sort of used them to get into other bands, which is fine. I'm sure if you used Black Veil Brides to get into metal music, you'd be horrified by that fact. But there is one band I really cannot forgive myself for liking the way I did.
May 17, By Liz Belilovskaya Incubus is a band for grownups. Their calm music and philosophical lyrics aim to entertain while providing intellectual stimulation. The lead singer, Brandon Boyd, has a beautiful, melodic, rangy voice, while the music is skillfully instrumental.
The lyrical content sounds like optimized poetry. The overall tone of their new album If Not Now, When is sophisticated and composed but fails to awe despite the combined talent of the band.
It would be nice if he brought more diversity and texture to the song vocally. The point of the song is about not wasting time and taking chances, the same could be said for the track.
The fantastic saccharine sentiment is not likely to play well to grownups. Its dreamy tone is playful, but not that interesting. The music is similar to acoustic Led Zeppelin but the vocals are similar to Green Day…if only they were into glam rock.
Boyd tempers his vocals as a result, taking a less-is-more approach. The mid-song transition to an electronic tone was surprisingly great move. The addition of female backup vocals was smart. The music is edgy and fast.

The vocals range from long, melodic pleas to sharp-spoken phrases over a fast drum happily beating. The female vocalist backs Boyd on this one. The song is about the singer being attacked by a girl in the black hat. The lyrical content is not as witty or intelligent as in other songs, presumably speaking to the title.
If Not Now, When is a solid album that wavers in quality at different points. While Boyd is a strong vocalist, the album fails when it leans too much on his ballad sensibilities; stretching and prolonging notes and adding melodrama.Halsey is a GRAMMY® Award-nominated multi-platinum alternative pop maverick.
She went from putting songs on SoundCloud to having her first full length album, “Badlands,” certified platinum by the RIAA within one year of its release, with five Gold singles and more than 2 billion streams, and stunning the industry with its debut at no.
2 on the Billboard charts in August of About This Album The band's second album, Make Yourself, finds Incubus settling more comfortably into their skin.
The often abrupt segues from monstrous Metal into fuzzy Funk have been softened for a more cohesive sound. Music Review: Incubus – Light Grenades.
Michael Jones November 30, 5 Comments 34 Views. Share. tweet; Since Make Yourself, the album that “Pardon Me” came from, they’ve put out Morning View, A Crow Left of Murder, and their new album, Light Grenades. That’s a respectable bunch of albums right there, I’ll have you know.
WE BELONG TOGETHER – Mariah Carey “We Belong Together” was named the #1 song of the decade on the Billboard Hot While I don’t agree with that ranking, it’s still a great, soulful R&B/hip-hop love song and a strong performance from one of the most successful female singers of the past quarter-century.
So Incubus are in a sense left without ever been 'the biggest band in rock' or 'the best band in rock'. Yet having listened Make Yourself and Morning View I feel like they could've deserved better in both departments. For one, this record is really consistent/5(K).
‘Morning View’ is not your typical Incubus album. Past offerings ranged from the funked-up punky-jazz debut ‘Fungusamungus’ through to their last ejection ‘Make Yourself’ with its big, big, BIG dj-affected, epic-rock type stuff through to the sweet beach party acoustic’s of ‘Stellar’ and ‘Drive’.
