Song: Black Hearted Inertia
Artist: Incubus
Album: Monuments and Melodies
Label: Epic Records
Notes: 1st single from Compilation LP
Analysis: It’s been three years since we’ve heard some new Incubus and that’s too long. Granted, they won’t be releasing any albums of new material any time soon, but for their greatest-hits compilation the band has this new track to satisfy us. It’s as earthy and melodic as anything Incubus has done since Morning View, and still manages to stand out from their back catalogue as something fresh. I don’t think that they will ever top Make Yourself, or Morning View in terms of album quality (at least they haven’t yet) but it’s songs like ‘Black Hearted Inertia’ that remind me why I love the band so much. Great summer song, and it will sit well with the rest of the Incubus classics that you’ll find on Monuments and Melodies.
