All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Seizing their extended half-decade hiatus as an opportunity to reinvent themselves, Incubus dive headfirst into a comfortable middle age on their seventh album, If Not Now, When?

Incubus aren't completely ready to become an AAA act -- they're spry enough to sound convincing on the clatter of "Switchblade," the guitars don't soothe so much as evoke desolate landscapes, vocalist Brandon Boyd still favors some unsettling lyrical imagery -- but the end result is an album on a shaded, comfortable grayscale, music that's suitably mature yet sidesteps stultifying notions of middlebrow class.

    EPIC AWESOMENESS!

    I haven't heard the whole CD yet.. but just based on their first single and the Incubus Headquaters idea they are doing.. it's going to be the most amazing cd ever! They are literally opening their own store in LA to put on special performances and stuff before the release!
