    It seamlessly blends his classical talents with an avant-garde flair and experimental rock dynamics. [Jun 2014, p.83]

    Given its all-encompassing title, it's fitting that ∞ (Infinity) is one of Tiersen's most ambitious albums, but its grand scale only magnifies his music's heartfelt beauty.

    No one making music today merges the worlds of popular music, experimental music, Western classical music, and European folk music as expertly as Yann Tiersen and ∞ is one of his most fully realized projects.

    All things considered, ∞ might not match the immediacy and imagination of its predecessor Skyline, but the record certainly has its buoyant moments of unadulterated joie de vivre.

    ∞ (Infinity) is ambitious and experimental, not so much songs as scored moods and sketches of dreams.

    Surely satisfying to an unknown (but tiny) demographic, this record is instantly likeable, but it’s also just as immediately forgettable.

    It's simply too mired in experimentation to make for an enjoyable or enlightening experience.
