    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.

    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.

    Tiersen is a master of the evocative, music you can see, and here he has succeeded in bringing to the fore the landscapes he sought out in the making of the album.

    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.

    The variety of sounds and instrumentation on the record is something to be admired.

    At times, even on its better tracks, Infinity suffers from the weight of its own ambitions, obscuring great ideas in a wash of obstinate noise wrought by too many instruments in the mix.

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