Sons of the Sea is a collaboration between Brandon Boyd and Brendan O’Brien. You probably already know Brandon Boyd as the lead singer but you’re probably less familiar with Mr. O’Brien — well, at least by his name. Brendan has engineered and/or produced tons of the best albums of the last 25 years, including Pearl Jam’s Vs. and Vitalogy, Stone Temple Pilot’s Purple and Tiny Music…, and more recently Incubus’s If Not Now, When?. Those are some serious credentials.
What happens when you put those two together? In my opinion, a poppier version of Incubus. For some reason The Mrs. thinks Brandon sings in a different voice on it, but I think he sounds as great as he always does.
