Sound — 10
This is my favorite Incubus album by a long shot. When you hear it, you know it's the same old Incubus, but with a newer, cooler sound. The overall sound of all the instruments is great, the sound is great, on none of the song do the guitars outpower the vocals (or vice-versa), which you don't see much now-a-days. When I first saw the album cover, I just looked at it for 15 minutes, because it at first appears to be a grenade, but at further inspection, you notice it is many things symbolizing peace coming together to form something symbolizing war.
Lyrics — 10
The Lyrics are much more imaginative and deeper than previous albums (for proof, listen to Dig). I find myself actually trying to find a hidden meaning in the tracks, which I couldn't do for the other albums.The lyrics match perfectly with their songs. For instance, if you put Anna Molly's lyrics to Dig's sound, it most likely wouldn't be as good (it might, I don't know). Brandon (the singer) sounds great, as usual. Of all of the covers I've seen on youtube, noone can sing like him.
Overall Impression — 10
This is Incubus' best album in my opinion.For a few reasons: first, the lyrics are much better than the other albums. Secondly, the guitar riffs are better( except for Drive, which is my favorite Incubus song)overall. Third, I believe that this album is consistently better, most other albums just have one or two good songs, but Light Grenades has so many great songs. The most impressive songs are Anna Molly and Dig. I love the new sound of the band mixed with the good ol' Icubus we all enjoy. I hate absolutely nothing about this album. I don't have the CDI bought it on iTunes, so I don't have to worry about losing it!
