On the duo's self-titled debut, Incubus frontman Brandon Boyd teams up with producer Brendan O'Brien as Sons of the Sea, with the pair setting off to explore more pop-influenced waters. Airy and reflective, the album has a sound that suits Boyd's soaring and versatile vocals, giving him the time to stretch out and explore the sonic spaces O'Brien has created for him. While the album feels a long way from the spacy drive of Incubus, fans of Boyd's voice will no doubt appreciate the opportunity to enjoy the singer in a more relaxed, carefree setting.
