Critical Mass

These Left Coast alt-metal lifers have made their reputation by earnestly searching for the vulnerable bro trapped inside the nookie-seeking mook. (Partial credit should go to the genial good looks of singer Brandon Boyd.) On the band's seventh studio album, Incubus fully embrace surf-bum balladry, and if Boyd's lyrics carry a whiff of Keanu -- "I was low, but now I am high," he reveals in "In the Company of Wolves" -- the warm slow-jam sonics provide a soothing distraction.
