3.0 goodI hate everything | March 17th 17

Now this, this is how you do album artwork. No nice colours, no interesting designs, just your
band name in the worst font ever and the name of the album. That way, the plebs that buy the album
on vinyl will know what they're purchasing. "you mean their logo for 20 years?" no shit

Okay, I don't... umm... Yeah, Incubus on their latest studio outing sound equal parts desperate to cling onto whatever relevance they still got and dull. Cleverly titled 8, the Calabasas-based rock troupe find themselves going through the motions during this one, offering significantly weaker versions of songwriting ideas they've played around with in the past. Vocalist Brandon Boyd is way past his prime as a singer and the main man's lyrics ring hollow now. A laughable mixdown thanks to Skrillex's involvement, composition choices lacking in personality, and otherwise fine musicianship that's practically rendered useless due to the production values allow for one boring experience. The last three tracks are at least worth salvaging, but these songs also don't stand up to Incubus' best material throughout their career. Pardon me while I burst into flames from hearing the lameness that should've been called Incub8.

Very hit or miss. Some cringey lyrics as well. Overall though, the 3-4 best songs on here make this memorable enough to warrant additional listens, which is more than can be said for their previous LP.

Track One is titled "No Fun". pretty fitting as that seems to be this bands motto for the better part of a decade now harharhar

Someone tell them that calling it quits is an option. Only weakening their weakened legacy with this. (1.5)

1.0 awfulcloakanddagger | May 2nd 17

I can't believe the same band that produced such gems as Drive, Pleasure, Pardon Me, New Skin, Vitamin etc have reduced themselves to creating such bland, uninspired, watered down garbage as this. Such a shame to see one of my favourite bands go through such a poor midlife crisis.

The Suckubus of the legend has the head of the dreadlock hemp snakes and the dreaded surfboard - lock up your sons, it cum now to suck-u-bi! Shake the sun Kiss beach hair because your worth it

Bump

1.0 awfulDIMS | April 28th 17

pretty much as bland and uninspired as its title. most of the songs here sound like they were recorded by amateurs in their garage. one of the worst returns i've seen in a while. 0+

It sucks. I hate the fact this is an Incubus album. It almost makes me want to disown this band.
Barely anything good, nothing to save it from being a terrible album. "Nimble Bastard" is the only
decent track.

3.0 goodalvarops95 | April 21st 17

The duo "Make no sound in the digital forest" and "Throw out the map" is pretty awesome. Other
than tat, "No fun" was actually quite fun. The rest, just meh, there is a huge lack of the
perrsonality found in A crow left of the murder...

Bump

4.0 excellentminilogo37 | April 21st 17

Generally better than expected. Middle songs are best. Ends fairly flat. The worst track, 'When I became a Man', leads to the best, 'Familiar Faces'.

Bump

4.5 superbRocknro11 | April 11th 17

If These first four tracks came from a new band they would be considered good. Incubus will get shafted like they have their whole career, from quick to toss aside type people. Is someone going to say linkin park deserves to sell all these records. ???? Anyway. Incubus 8 sounds to be rock pop electronic r&b and alternative! I guess it's not cool to the public because they really liked the 90's incubus. Is that fair? Nope. But this album will be amazing. The funny thing is you have to listen to it!!!
