Agree on the "too generic" comments to an extent. I definitely felt that way as soon as the chorus kicked in.

But it is really hypocritical for this board to hate when they try to branch out AND hate when they try to put out a more straightforward rocker.

It's not my favorite track ever but I like it. I enjoy it more than any song on INNW. I'm encouraged by it.

Sadly, that's true.

Anyone else think Mike Shinoda deserves a bitch slap for hijacking Incubus' release day on KROQ?

Hmpf, the stream on KROQ says that with Shinoda it'll only be the interview. Hope it's not the same with Incubus, otherwise I'm holding out and being a goody two shoes for nothing.

EDIT: Yup, I'm being a good guy for nothing. They're not allowed to stream music. Whatever, still going to wait in hopes of a better rip after it's played, since you guys said the quality of the early leak was so-so.
EDIT2: Just heard that new Linkin Park-track. At least I know Incubus' song won't be that bad.

I'm not disappointed by any stretch of the imagination. I do hear a hybrid of Trust Fall and Make a Move in there. It has some legs in it with the soloing where it can really just let a little loose. It does sound kind of like a simple, direct rock single, but I think it has potential to be a grower. It has me intrigued to see what else they've got cooked up.

I'm getting a little bit of a Foo Fighters vibe from it. I like it, sounds like it could be a song they play first in a live set

First impression: meh

After 3 listens: a bit catchy, if nothing other than generic sounding. Reminds me of Make A Move, and in that it kinda feels lack luster?

As with all incubus songs, my opinion will morph as I continue to listen to it. I agree with what was said before as far as whoever wrote that article stating incubus returning to their roots...based on this track alone, I do not understand where or what they were reffering to.

Excited to have a new full album after 6 years. 6 YEARS! I remember mike stating in an interview around when INNW came out, incubus fans would never have to wait 5+ years between new incubus album cycles :lol:

I will say, I do appreciate that they do appear to be shifting course from INNW in terms of not necessarily focusing on the warm, romance components. This is harder than anything off that album.

Well, they did release some stuff 4 years after INNW, so I guess he didn't totally lie.

Probably the same guy who produced the Trust Fall EP. EDIT: A quick look at wikipedia and I find out Boyd and Einziger produced the EP

I'm definitely not liking the production.

I kinda miss Brendan in a way..
Still i dig the new music, the vocals are a bit wishy washy but that could be the stream..

True, I guess was under the impression of full length album when he said that. Had Side B come out before or around following year like they originally planned, would have been great but oh well, we're here now with a full length album on the horizon.

Yeah, I was gonna say reminds me of a hybrid between Foo Fighters and Jimmy Eat World. I like it... it's just a fun rock song.
I have to be leaving, but I won't let that come between us.

Phew just heard it. I have to hear better quality, but as people have mentioned, although it's more generic...it sounds fun. Looking forward to hearing it a lot more.

Wasn't Dave Sardy the producer or only the mixer?

I like it. I can't see it becoming one of my favourites or anything, but it's an enjoyable little song and Mike's solo is great. Think it might get some decent radio play, too.

Album name announced: "8"

Because it's the 8th album. Fits with the generic song I guess.
