I'm glad you guys brought my expectations down, because now I'm actually pleasantly surprised. Not that it's a groundbreaking or amazing track (judging after one listen), but it's less generic than you guys made think.

Album name is pretty lame.

Better than naming it after a song, though.

Super interested in the rest of the album. Honestly, compared to the more recent era (LG-present) albums, I'd say this is high in terms of anticipation based on this song. Its fun, its actually at a pretty nice tempo - I'd love to see it slowed down a bit (where I think they shine most) but overall it sounds like a pretty cool song.

I'm curious for the HQ version as well, to see if that changes my mind in terms of production quality. I'd agree that that's the only thing thats dragging me down on it. Too compressed. You really lose some of the instruments and at points it sounds like a wall of noise. Wish the bass notes were a bit more recognizable - with the exception of the one note Ben plays coming out of the guitar solo. So good.

On the note of tempo - remember I'll Be Outside from Ben's last album? That song was indicative of where I would love to see Incubus go. Brandon in the chorus was so not-theatrical with his vocals - it was super cool. I hope there are some Ben influences like that in this upcoming album.

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


I like this for the fact that it officially acknowledges Fungus Amongus as their first album!

Well, the ACLOTM cover has a '5' in the middle, so that makes sense.

The mix on this is pretty bad. The opening of the song is awesome and I was really hyped...until everything else. It doesn't sound like it is a bad quality rip just that the song wasn't built well. It's way too generic and I'd be embarrassed to play it with my windows down. Had to turn my bass down to negative 6 just to hear Brandon. I'm not sure who produced this Incubus track, but Kaddisfly had 10x the production on a budget of probably a couple 100 dollars in their basement on Horses Galloping.

There's no passion.

Still looking forward to "8" hopefully there are a handful of good tracks, I'm sure there will be.

no album release date?
i thought the countdown would have been like... boom, here you go, here is the art and title.
it would have blown my mind if they just had of dropped it at the countdown end.

That's definitely intentional and pretty hilarious.
I have to be leaving, but I won't let that come between us.
