One of the more innovative bands to come out of the alternative metal explosion of the '90s, Incubus utilized an eclectic mix of sounds as they added a layer of emotion and accessibility to their sound that few bands from that era would be able to match. On Playlist: The Very Best of Incubus, Incubus have their discography distilled down to its finest moments with a career-spanning compilation that tracks the band from its breakout album, 1997's S.C.I.E.N.C.E., all the way to 2011's If Not Now, When? Offering a solid look at a band whose sound is still hard to pin down, this compilation provides a great entryway into one of the more enduring bands to come out of the era that brought us rap-rock and nu-metal.
