No. It only bothers me if a band starts to suck when it mellows out, I quite enjoy "soft" music on occasion.

Doesn't bother me, unless like DR said, they start to suck. Sometimes a change is nice.

For example, I personally think that ACLOTM was Incubus' best album yet, and also their softest. yes

My favorite Incubus song is Stellar, and that's definitely not a hard song or anything happy

ACLOTM is a great album.

I like "Enjoy Incubus." It gives me the illusion that I'm cool enough to be on hallucinogenic drugs. sad

it doesnt bother me at all. A soft song gives the lead singer showcase his voice more and the band.

A Crow Left of the Murder is their best album, Sick Sad Little World being possibly their best song.

That was the first album that Incubus truly established themselves as one of the very best and also their own style. Although influences can be heard.

Well, let's stop pushing the bandwagon along. Incubus were never actually a hard rock band anyway.

Nothing wrong with 'mellow'. Only shit music.

My point was that they were hard-ER than they are now.

Yeah, it was valid. Just wondered why it became an Incubus thread.

Perhaps the thread poster could share the bands they have in mind?

I was talking more along the lines of Godsmack and Sevendust.
Incubus has always sounded good!

No possibly about it. It's light-years ahead of anything I've heard them do.

And no I don't hate it personally, it's called variation. Plus, when the best hard rock bands do mellow songs, they often turn out great. Chloroform Perfume is FATA's best song, Angel's Son is Sevendust's best song (well, second best), Something I Can Never Have is NIN's best song...

I disagree.
Black and ***** were awesome songs!
angels son was good but it sounded like something dave mattewhs band would sing.
I used to like godsmack but it sounds like their becoming alice N chains clones

Godsmack, as someone cleverly pointed out here a while ago, have two songs—Voodoo and non-Voodoo. IMO they're the best example of bands who use the same song structure for every tune. Even bands that are more shitty in other ways like Nickelback and Linkin Park have more variation between songs than Godsmack. A while back I had a Godsmack song stuck in my head, and then I realized that it was at least two different ones. Anyways, my point is, they've always sucked, nothing to do with going soft.

And what's wrong with Alice in Chains? confused

Surely being an AIC clone is better than being the real Godsmack.

I must admit i quite enjoy godsmack

I though ACLOTM was a dreadful album, i took it back the day after i bought it. S.C.I.E.N.C.E. or Make Yourself would be my favourite incubus albums, the songs off those albums are great live.

Its seems since Dirk Lance left, i have disliked there music immensly.
