If Not Now, When?
Released: Jul 2011
The opening title track is pure adult contemporary, and it'll make you think Incubus listened to a lot of American Idol pop (not to mention Phil Collins' Face Value) before entering the studio. The band maintains that laid-back, middle-of-the-road vibe throughout, actually: This surely sounds crazy, but If Not Now, When? contains but a single rocker, "Switchblade," which isn't particularly heavy when weighed against Incubus' funk-metal roots. It's true that the group has mellowed out in recent years, but everything about this record feels like the product of an entirely different band.
