  • Summary: The solo album for Ponytail's Dustin Wong was composed almost entirely with only a guitar.

  1. The music is always heading somewhere promising; the guitars ping, swoop, peal and buzz.

    Infinite Love itself feels like the sonic equivalent of the iTunes Visualizer: pulsing forms, growing in complexity, before turning in on themselves and shooting off in another direction. [Nov 2010, p.62]
  3. It's clear there's a lot of, well, love on Infinite Love. And it's exciting to share in it.

    Infinite Love's strength is its lack of presumptuousness. It doesn't try to blow you away with technical skill; instead, Wong's abilities become clear in a more subtle way, as he consistently coaxes new and fresh sounds from his guitar throughout the albums' running times.

    Imagine John Fahey channelling the pulse minimalism of Steve Reich or Hendrix jamming African highlife on a digital drive pedal. [Dec 2010, p.119]

    Given the history he's forged with them and Ponytail, Wong likely won't sit still for long, and even the most rigid parts of Infinite Love suggest he's got a lot more ideas to draw on.

    Infinite Love is a prickly, antiseptic listen. Surprising and interesting, to be sure, but hostile to expectations and ultimately as unsentimental about itself as it would be of any cultural artifact.
