It's hard to believe it's time for Incubus to release a greatest hits album. For a band that entered the fray in the mid-to-late 90's and enjoyed considerable success in the early part of this decade, this release may feel rushed, but could be a sign they are entertaining the idea of slowing down... let's hope not.

Regardless of the timing, this two-disc configuration is still a worthwhile pick-up for fans. The first disc of Monuments and Melodies includes their new single, "Black Heart Inertia," another new track, "Midnight Swim," as well as 12 top ten singles. The second disc includes rarities and unreleased songs, including a cover of Prince's "Let's Go Crazy," and an acoustic version of "A Certain Shade of Green."
If you pick up the physical version, you get some added perks, including a passcode for additional media on enjoyincubus.com.
