      Disadvantages

      Containing rockier and more laidback songs, this is perhaps the best Incubus album to date.

      After a long absence, Incubus return with their 2006 album "Light Grenades." The first thing to notice about this album is, unlike the previous Incubus offerings, the experimental sounding, DJ heavy tracks are absent. Here we are presented with a much more clean, straight forward alternative rock sound, making this much more accessable to a wider fanbase.

      The album opens with "Quicksand", which starts off slow but gradually picks up, getting louder and more bolder by the end of it. This blends straight into second track "A Kiss To Send Us Off". Starting with siren noises, the track then picks up and goes straight into an energetic, rocky piece. Whilst "Quicksand" is the relaxing opening into the album, "A Kiss To Send Us Off" really gives us a proper feel the rest of the album has to offer.

      Perhaps one of the best tracks of the album follows "A Kiss To Send Us Off." This track, "Dig" is a beautiful piece. Guitars gently pick, and lead singer Brandon Boyd's vocals are on top form.

      The first single off the album follows, named "Anna Molly". This, like "A Kiss To Send Us Off" is a fast paced, rockier number. It is a track that easily sticks in your head after listening to it, and it is almost impossible to not sing along to it during listening, or even afterwards.

      After "Anna Molly", comes perhaps the best song on the album apart from "Dig". This is "Love Hurts". Catchy and beautiful sounding, this is one of the slower songs on the album that is really enhanced by the way the guitars are played. From this point on, most of the tracks take a more slower, laid back approach, but do not stray too far from the familiar Incubus sound.

      Other stand out tracks include "Diamonds & Coal", and "Oil and Water", two tracks that sound similiar to "Dig" and "Love Hurts".

      Overall, Light Grenades shows us that Incubus are capable of many sounds, and once again, like their previous albums, have beautiful harmonies combined with Brandon Boyd's great vocals. From faster, heavier alternative rock numbers, experimental chilled out tracks, to beautiful ballads and harmonies, there is something here for any alternative rock fan. At least in my opinion, this is perhaps the best Incubus album to date.

        a great incubus album

        Light Grenades is the latest album from the american band Incubus. The album has 13 tracks:
        1. Quicksand
        2. A kiss to send us off
        3. Dig
        4. Anna Molly
        5. Love hurts
        6. Light grenades
        7. Earth to bella (part 1)
        8. Oil and water
        9. Diamonds and coal
        10. Rogues
        11. Paper shoes
        12. Pendulous Threads
        13. Earth to bella (part 2)

        This album is more mainstream than their previous releases. I have to say that the title track 'light grenades' is my least favourite song on the whole album.

        The opening track 'quicksand' is possibly the best opening to an album i have ever heard, with the mixture of synths and Brandon's harmonic voice leading perfectly into the next track 'A kiss to send us off'. This album is probably my favourite incubus album and no matter how many times i listen to it i enjoy it.
