Good Songs, but Maybe a Bit Over Produced

"On their sixth album "Light Grenades" Incubus doesn't disappoint. yet doesn't go above & beyond it's past releases. The song material is good, yet some lyrical content was slight disappointing.
Brendan O'Brien produces this album who has done previous albums and overall the production is good, yet some songs sound too compressed and over-produced. It lacks the fierce emotion in the vocals of singer Brandon Boyd that I loved in past Incubus releases. Songs on this album include "Quicksand", "Anna Molly", "Love Hurts" and the title track of "Light Grenades"."
MAYBE FAME HAS RUINED THIS BAND

"It's almost like these guys gave up and decided to cash paychecks instead of writing inspired music... I am really bummed out about this release. I hope they get a kick in the head from all the bad reviews and do some REAL song writing instead of going through the motions.
The single was just okay, but the rest of this CD is really bad. Maybe chicks dig it, but I have to pass. Hope for a better release next time..."
