Re: '8' - Album discussion

I've listened to Incubus pretty regularly for about 16 years now, and this is the first album that hasn't really stuck with me. I don't find myself wanting to listen to it, nor do I very often. There are a handful of good tracks. I like No Fun, Undefeated, and Surveillance, but like it was said abov...

Re: '8' - Album discussion

So Skrillex basically cut and pasted Familiar Faces together? I wonder if that's the case or if they recorded some new parts for his mix?

Re: '8' - Album discussion

I'm just not a fan in general of hip/hop, r&b, etc. The drum machine just instantly makes me think of a shallow Lil Wayne song or something. Just not into it at all. Kudos if you are.

Re: '8' - Album discussion

After about 6 listen throughs, the only song I definitively don't like is Lonliest. The drum machine kills it. I've begun skipping from Undefeated to Familiar.

Re: '8' - Album discussion

I don't see why it would have been hard for Jose to do something for Lonliest. The drum machine is truly awful and turns an ok song into a big fat dud in the middle of a great album.

Re: '8' - Album discussion

I could not disagree more. The album works for me because it is so short. (Their shortest even counting Fungus). I'm not suggesting 3 more on top of this album. I meant they could have omitted the 2 jam tracks and maybe Lonliest, and worked some stronger material in. But I'm just nitpicking. Call m...

Re: '8' - Album discussion

The album flows great. The first 5 songs are great, then Lonliest kills it. It sounds like a Timberlake song on pop/hip hop radio. Just not a fan. Surveillance and Throw out the Map are solid tracks. It feels to me they really didn't come up with that much for the album considering 2 songs are basic...

Wow Jelger, I didn't realize you were that late into Incubus!

I'll have to go with Are You In? this round.

I'm really hoping that I can get into the song. I loathe that hip hop drum machine sound that it had. Call me a stickler.

Agreed. It was the most original at least.

Hmmm. Upon first listen, Undefeated is the first disappointing song from 8.

Are you referring to the bridge? I imagine he'll have some sort of pad that make the sound when struck.

Re: '8' - Album discussion

Not the best, but far from the worst. I do like how the second chorus cranks up. Seems a little safe, in a Diamonds and Coal way.

Re: '8' - Album discussion

Has anyone thought that maybe Skrillex is actually working on an album and asked the guys to help? It would explain why Chino was there too. The video says making Incubus' new record, or something to that nature. I didn't see anything referencing Incubus when Chino was there, did I miss something? ...
