Re: '8' - Album discussion

Man I love the ending of Familiar Faces. the part where brandon sings, "how many tries before we get it right?" There's just something about the way he sings that line that gets me every time and makes me hit repeat. i wonder why they didn't use that liine throughout the song? Such a fucki...

Re: '8' - Album discussion

right now '8' is the lowest rated album in the last few months on metacritic. WTF?! I mean the album is no masterpiece but come on! how do these guys garner such negative reviews?

Re: '8' - Album discussion

I don't think Nimble Bastard would be getting so much flack if it weren't for the fact that it was the first song that everyone heard first off 8. we've all heard it a hundred times so of course the newness has worn off a little, but it's far from the weakest song on 8! the breakdown is fucking sick...

Re: '8' - Album discussion

my favorite songs off 8, ranked: throw out the map love in a time of surveillance glitterbomb familiar faces- is the biggest surprise for me. great production and a police/crow feel to it. been listening to this one on repeat. make no sound in the digital forest undefeated nimble bastard loneliest s...

Re: '8' - Album discussion

I mean, maybe they should have just had skrillex come in originally, if he was just going to mess with all the work one producer had already finished. Maybe skrillex would have pushed them in a different way. maybe these songs would all sound completely different with skrillex in the mix from the be...

Re: '8' - Album discussion

I'm sure co-producer Skrilly got a big old payday too, for fiddling with Sardy's work and "sprinkling that fairy dust"

Re: '8' - Album discussion

they should have just brought skrillex in to produce the whole thing, right from the beginning.

weird indeed! I wonder what's up with that? does it give producer credit to anyone?

Re: '8' - Album discussion

random thought; I really wish mikey would drop the whole "minimalist" approach to playing guitar that he's adopted lately.
less isn't always more... sometimes more is more!!

Re: '8' - Album discussion

Light Grenades is a great album. But upon it's release, Diamonds and Coal and Oil and Water were the furthest thing from what I would have expected (and wanted to hear) on an incubus CD. Those two songs almost ruined that album for me!

Re: '8' - Album discussion

Happy incubus day everyone! (albeit a day early ;) ) Album is OK. I quite enjoy the overall darker tone of the album. I wouldn't go as far as to say it's their "best album since LG". but that doesn't mean it's not good. I would have liked to hear some more experimental sounding moments but...

Re: Incubus Survivor: Morning View (Round 1)

What an album! every song is really good imo. but I voted Blood on the Ground. the most generic sounding song on the album.

Re: '8' - Album discussion

It's not the typical sound from incubus that I like most but, I quite enjoy Undefeated, especially the chorus. Brandon sounds great.
