Re: 2017 Setlists [Spoilers]

Fair enough, maybe an overreaction on my part. Just seems like there has been a lot more complaining in this thread than positivity which I feel is not fair to the band. Hell, someone a few posts up said we should lock the thread because of the lack of variety. I'm just trying to be positive given h...

Re: 2017 Setlists [Spoilers]

To be fair, it seems 95% of the board based on posts I've read would only be content with 6 SCIENCE songs, a few MY songs, and a few MV songs, maybe with Pendulous and Rogues mixed in. I saw them in both Atlanta and D.C. (I believe identical setlists) and I highly enjoyed both shows. The band put on...

Re: News and Updates

There was also a lot of positive momentum and active discussion leading up to and right after the release of 8...unfortunately when the forum went down for a couple weeks it destroyed all of that and perhaps sent some away for good. I go to this forum and Reddit pretty regularly...neither are super ...

Re: IncubusHQ bundles and "8" vinyl

Lol, what a fucking mess. I received my litho two days ago but still no vinyl.... (received the rest of the bundle and a CD version of the album over a month ago).

Re: IncubusHQ bundles and "8" vinyl

I received the entire package but with a CD version of the album instead of the vinyl I ordered....this was about 3 weeks ago so I emailed them to make sure I was still going to receive the vinyl whenever they got around to shipping them out. Have emailed 3x now and still haven't heard anything back...

Weird....wish they would have removed the font/writing....would have been a cool laser-Floyd-esque type of video.

Re: '8' - Album discussion

I would have loved a more energetic final chorus with some heavier guitar. The bridge has such a huge build-up and then just dies back into a chorus consistent with the first two. That being said, I am happy with the song overall. A few more observations as I've listened to it straight through a bun...

Re: '8' - Album discussion

For those worried about Ben's interest in the band, he was on Facebook earlier answering a ton of questions and responding to comments. Seemed pretty engaged and excited about the album in my opinion. Said "Surveillance" was a total group effort and most of the album was in one way or anot...

Re: '8' - Album discussion

I get a heavy ACLOTM vibe from most of the record, especially with the gritty sound, but I can also see what you're saying. Everyone keeps mentioning The Police vibe on Familiar Faces, but I also hear a lot of Ben Kenney's solo music in this song, particularly Conception and the Funeral which is one...

Re: News and Updates

I don't mind WIBAM, it's kind of nice comic relief in the middle of a pretty heavy album. It also transitions nicely into Familiar Faces. Obviously I prefer more songs and a longer album but it's not as bad as everyone makes it out to be if you take it for what it is. If Skrillex is even partially r...

Re: News and Updates

There's actually an awesome Favorite Things video on YouTube from the LG era, think it was a show in Chile. I'm guessing he is specifically referring to Deep Inside haha...its kind of a ridiculous song (as incredible as the musicianship is) and I don't think it would translate well live. EDIT: Here'...

Re: '8' - Album discussion

It's got a really small sample size/number of reviews so that idiotic Sputnik review drags it down pretty hard.

Re: '8' - Album discussion

I wouldn't say that I necessarily care what the singles are, I've never really cared about this on any album....but they are inevitably going to release singles so why not hope they release something that is at least more indicative of their sound and can attract new fans or re-energize old fans whe...

Re: '8' - Album discussion

Here's where I'm currently ranking them. I have a lot of side-by-sides because my feelings change by the day and what sort of mood I'm in. A Crow Left of the Murder / Morning View Make Yourself Light Grenades / 8 If Not Now When SCIENCE Fungus Amongus The gap between each of my top 6 (ACLOTM - INNW)...

Re: '8' - Album discussion

Lonliest is an enjoyable song for me in the right time and place...I'm not huge on the idea of it being a single. Would rather see No Fun or Familiar Faces, think either would do pretty well. The bridge in Throw Out The Map may be one of the best moments on the record, especially for Kilmore....love...

Re: '8' - Album discussion

I'm also a little surprised by the reaction that it's such a predictable and safe record. After listening to it multiple times straight through, it feels to me like there is a good amount risk-taking and getting outside their comfort zone, even if it isn't on a weird-level similar to SCIENCE. It's f...

Re: '8' - Album discussion

I would be okay if Incubus came in at #2 or #3 right behind Kendrick. That is a fantastic album.

Re: '8' - Album discussion

It's a great and respectable effort, I'm really pleased with it and think it's the most consistent project they've put together since Crow. I'm not necessarily saying it's better than LG, I'm just saying it's more consistent and I think it flows better. I'm really trying hard not to compare all of t...
