Sound — 10
Incubus has always had a unique sound that nobody else has. They explore so many instruments, and the vocals are always clean. They use so many different sounds but you always know who it is. They blend guitar with a strong bass (recently departed Dirk Lance) with drums and DJ as well. Not to metion the other instruments(saxophone,Djembe,dijeridoo, violins.
Lyrics — 8
They're lyrics have always been strong but after all or their albums they seem not as spiritual and meaningful as they used too.
Overall Impression — 8
This album is a lot slower and more melodic than science or their early stuff, however change is good and they still have a great sound. I enjoyed songs on this album such as aqueous transmission and nice to know you(one of the weaker lyriced songs). This album is definitely worth buying if you're a long time Incubus fan or for someone wants to venture away from all of that hip hop rap stuff. great album!
