I think they are at "that point" as a band , anyhow. They can put out new music on the Beach Boys schedule and their fans will be happy. Do an occasional tour of 6 cities playing material off of Science, Make yourself, and of course a handful of others and they'll sell out at 80/ticket.
The band has such a cult following, which is deserved after putting out so many solid songs. (notice, songs not albums) .

good pants are hard to come by.
i'm ok with this.
better to let the music happen naturally rather than try to force it when it's not there.
i love incubus, i like brandon boyd's solo work. either way as a fan, i win.

Yeah I have to agree.
Title track in particular is stellar. Boyd has some pipes man and they really shine in that song.

Terrible news, they are a fantastic live show. The last record was not up to their standard but many of the songs translated into great setlist on the last headlining tour. These guys are too good to be done, I bet they release another classic record.

Weird, I'm only just regaining full consciousness after dozing off during their last album back when it was released.

Light Grenades is amazing. Bitches.

Yeezus season approaching.

You forgot about Morning View.

Damn, this sucks. This band has never put out a bad album IMO (although I wasn't a fan of Brandon's solo album at all). I've never seen them live, either... something always comes up that makes it so that I can't attend.

I grew up with this band, I'll always support anything they do.

While their newer stuff isn't as exciting as their older material, they've always been a solid group. Maybe someday they'll get their aggression back.

if not now, when? was amazing, it was a good step towards a new direction

Oh man. I loved The Wild Trapeze like immensely. So this isn't the worst news. Also, really enjoyed If Not Now, When? It was slower and a grower, but extremely solid. Light Grenades certainly had its moments. "Quicksand" and "A Kiss to Send Us Off" are really good.
