Product Description

Amazon.ca

A rare case in which a band actually gets better with time, this California hard rock quintet seems to have finally grown into its skin on its fifth album. Casting off the dated slap-bass funk and pointless nu-metal angst of its early years (well, mostly), Light Grenades is not only a worthwhile follow-up to 2003's A Crow Left of the Murder--the expansive disc many fans consider Incubus's best--but shows improvements all around. Singer Brandon Boyd has learned to temper the words he plucks out of the thesaurus with genuine heartbreak, while the rest of the group proves it can do a lot more than offer up nonstop grooves. --Aidin Vaziri

5.0 out of 5 stars the latest of many great records June 7 2007
By G. Larouche TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
I loved this album; I don't know if it's my favourite Incubus CD, but it is pretty high up there. Fans of early funk-rock Incubus stuff might find it too mellow, but I think that their sound had a very nice and interesting evolution with time. There is still plenty of experimentation and weirdness that made their early work unique, but it has a different tone. Some people say that Incubus sold out to be more mainstream, but I completely disagree. I actually think they are among the few bands out there who just do what they love and try to be the best at it as they can, and "Light Grenades" is a fine example of that. As usual, the lyrics are amazing and rich and the guitar is just awesome. If you can, check out the acoustic versions for "Anna Molly" (only available on the iTunes store, I'm afraid) and "Love Hurts" (that one is one the "Anna Molly" single CD... Go figure...). Very highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hurray! New Incubus for Christmas! Dec 5 2006
Format:Audio CD
I really enjoyed this album, and I have no specific criticisms, except that doesn't the introduction of Quicksand sound a lot like Radiohead's Everything in it's Right Place? Just a thought. Otherwise, awesome listen!

4.0 out of 5 stars My favorite is still Morning View Nov. 30 2006
Format:Audio CD
Yes, my favourite album is still Morning View but this is still a very good piece of art. As some previous reviewers said, you'll find yourself wanting to hear the album again and again. All musicians bring the best out of his instrument(s). The guitar is discretly leading the way, the bass is so groovy, drums are tight and Brandon's voice is perfect. And a very special mention to Dj Kilmore, going much further than simple vinyl scratching, incorporating instruments as weird as a mellotron and theramin. The only out of place song could be the title track, which is really like a grenade between two softer songs. Lets hope Incubus stick around for many years to bring us many quality albums such as this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars They Did It Again...! Nov. 28 2006
Format:Audio CD
As the band called Incubus distances themselves from the days of Fungus Amongus and S.C.I.E.N.C.E., I pause for a moment to reflect on whether I wish they'd go back. Admittedly, when I throw a new Incubus album in the player (an occurence which is becoming increasingly frequent - keep the new albums flowing!), I keep hoping to hear something blatantly catchy right off the bat, like the drums of Vitamin or the phase of Pardon Me. I am disappointed in this aspect, but in no other. This is the most "together" of any Incubus album yet, the seamless transition of the surreal opener "Quicksand" into "A Kiss to Send Us Off" inspires shivers in me everytime I hear it, and the delighfully optimistic lyrics of "Dig" and "Love Hurts" are a refreshing break from the depressing fuzz that seems to permeate many alt-rock bands of late. Even the songs that aren't so radio-friendly("Pendulous Threads", "Light Grenades") grow on you quickly and not-so-quietly, and as with past Incubus albums, may grow to be your favourite song. Trying to describe this album, nay, all Incubus albums in general, in but a paragraph is akin to describing the concept of thermodynamics to a caveman that hasn't seen fire. From beginning to end, Incubus again impresses us with their cohesive ear, heart and mind as a band, evolving instead of looking back, and never makes us wish that this album sounded more like "their old stuff." Five stars to this, and another five to the next. Cheers.

5.0 out of 5 stars A little bit of old, a little bit of new Nov. 21 2006
Format:Audio CD
Having heard the album recently first opinions resembled those of the "A Crow Left Of The Murder" release. The incubus of the "S.C.I.E.N.C.E." days appears to be gone, but from that has emerged the incubus that's brought out Morning View, A Crow Left Of The Murder, and now Light Grenades. The single "Anna Molly" is a reasonably good reflection of how the rest of the album sounds. The album contains great rocking hits like A Kiss to Set Us Off, Light Grenades, and Pendulous Threads. These songs are not on the same page as Vitamin, Privilege, or even Under My Umbrella, but the album is catchy all the way through. I've listened to it about 6 times in 2 days and each time i find myself wanting to listen to it again. It's got some great fresh sounds, some funky bass lines, and really catchy lyrics that will keep you coming back if you can get over the initial soft impression of the album. I can definitely see this becoming one of my favorite incubus albums.
