iTunes Editors' Notes

Incubus inhabits a space between pop and metal, but they have never been a pop metal band. After jumping into the alternative radio landscape with “Stellar” and “Pardon Me,” the band took a cue from the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and gradually morphed their sound into a mellow, passionate, groovy take on modern hard rock music, exemplified by “Drive,” “Love Hurts,” and “Dig.” If there is a corollary to Anthony Kiedis’s soaring unblemished vocals, it is Brandon Boyd, and similarly Incubus shift easily from softer songs into the agitated riffs of “Megalomaniac,” “Anna Molly,” and “Midnight Swim” (a new track produced by Brendan O’Brien). Even at 27 tracks, Monuments and Melodies is surprisingly consistent. The first 15 songs cover the band’s chart hits, while the final 11 tracks cover rarities, with “Look Alive,” “Martini,” and an acoustic version of “A Certain Shade of Green,” standing out among the pack. Two new songs (“Black Heart Inertia” and “Midnight Swim”) suggest that Incubus’ best work might still be ahead of them, although the surprisingly credible cover of Prince’s “Let’s Go Crazy” will be icing on the cake for longtime fans.

Customer Reviews

Good Collection

If you want Incubus's best songs in one place, buy this album. Their new stuff is nowhere near as good as their old stuff, but it still gets the job done. Worth the $13


All the best songs from one of the greatest alternative rock bands! Well worth the price. The acoustic version of A Certain Shade of Green is amazing and Pardon Me (Live) is also great.

Incubus, bring back incubus!

It's disappointing see such a strong band make incrementally worse music with every release. Skip this and go back to the start; in my opinion their best songs aren't even on here.

Incubus became one of the most popular alt-metal bands of the new millennium, setting themselves apart from a crowded field with a tireless touring ethic and a broad musical palette. Formed in 1991 in the San Fernando Valley suburb of Calabasas, California, the band's early lineup was comprised of tenth-grade classmates Brandon Boyd (vocals, percussion), Mike Einziger (guitar), Alex Katunich (aka Dirk Lance; bass), and José Pasillas (drums). Their early funk-metal sound was heavily influenced by...
