I'm wondering if anyone else on here has heard the full album, and what your opinions are. Here's mine:
Its probably my least favorite. I just don't feel like the music evolved from Light Grenades, musically or lyrically. The music on this record is much more methodical and less spontaneous. I think what made me like Incubus in the first place was that their songs chronicled the everyday human experience. A good example of that are songs like "11 AM" and "Here In My Room", but I just don't hear that in this new album. Not liking it at all. Best song, in my opinion, is "Isadore".
I think this album isn't their best.I liked what they have become listening to "light grenades".It was a very good album,maybe their best,musically speaking.So i expected a great album.Instead we have a bit boring album that isn't studied as light grenades or other works incubus have done.It hasn't got the energy,the verve,the emotions of the other albums.Incubus has ever done slow and sweet songs but they were great!I like some songs of INN,W? .In the company of wolves is the best,it's the most alternative,what do you expect by Incubus.All the songs could be played by every band in the world and this is the biggest defect of the album.It's clear what they wanted to do with this album.The wanted to excite the fans(and i have seen a lot of girls so!) so they did not pay attention to musical aspect.That is my opinion.I repeat I don't dislike totally this album but it's nothing special.The rockest song of the album is Switchblade but it is extremely monotonous!They could do something better,they're great musicians.I read some reviews and there a some negative,some positives,but the most part say INN,W? is nothing special,boring.
P.S promises,promises is terrible!I don't understand the lyrics because my english is not so good!But the music is horrible!
