AllMusic Review by

Arriving hot on the heels of the celebratory live anniversary set Incubus HQ Live is the retrospective The Essential Incubus, a 28-track collection rounding up highlights from the group's six albums and three EPs. Unlike the 2009 collection Monuments & Melodies, which attempted to please fans by digging into uncollected rarities, Essential focuses on Incubus' main body of work, presenting it in thorough detail, then annotating the journey with liner notes from Gary Graff. All of the group's charting Billboard singles -- including "Pardon Me," "Drive," "Talk Shows on Mute," "Megalomaniac," "Anna Molly," "Dig," "Love Hurts," and "Adolescents" -- are here, along with judiciously selected album and non-LP tracks, making this Essential a true representation of Incubus at their best.
