I have accumulated many personal reviews while listening to albums. My reviewing style is non-conventional and was only intended for myself. Sometimes I will only use one sentence to describe an album if I feel that is all that's required. Other times I will review an album while I'm still listening to it, leading to a song-by-song review of the album (bringing the size of the review to nearly dissertation-level). There are times when I will even come back to a review to add information that I didn't know when originally writing the review. The point is that I won't edit my reviews to make them more readable or conventional. My reviews are always a direct result of what I was feeling when I wrote them and I want to let that feeling come through.

Incubus - Light Grenades [2006]

Trippy start with "Quicksand" and then into a much more catchy, confident, and bold "A Kiss to Send Us Off". This album is yet another step up in their careers. There's a decent amount of catchiness littered about the album along with some creative songwriting, soothing melodies and moods, exciting riffs, and the classic Incubus style and feel. Very well-polished songs. They have hit a ceiling, though. It can't get much better than this without increasing the creativity... and maybe add a few more of those hard rock sections.

Rating: 8.25
