  • Summary: The Chicago pop-punk band face high expectations for this fourth album after its predecessor, their major-label debut 'From Under The Cork Tree,' brought their first taste of mainstream success. Jay-Z (briefly) guests.

  1. Lo and behold, it turns out these pasty emo boys are a pretty great blue-eyed soul band.
  2. FOB could've cut an album's worth of club hits and still found an audience. Its refusal to do so shows it still knows the difference between selling records and making fans.

    Infinity on High reveals a group that has grown so confident with success that the members are willing to give in to their every musical whim. [Feb 2007, p.83]
  4. Like Maroon 5... Fall Out Boy has found a middle ground where its raffish charm is edgy enough to engage teens in love with angst, and safe enough for the mass consumption that's sure to follow.
  5. On Infinity on High, they expose the secret life of boys, in hilariously bloodcurdling detail.
  6. The band's unusual songwriting method generally works.
  7. Anthems are plenty on "Infinity on High," and odds are good the fans are so well versed in bassist/lyricist Pete Wentz's pun-saturated, self-referential verbiage that they'll simply surrender -- as they should -- to the familiar burly riffs and candied hooks.

    I liked this album simply because nobody but Fall Out Boy can create this awesomeness.

    ok anyone who gave this album anything above a 4 or 5 have no sense of music. but instead of trying to find a band worth listening to they listen to that catchy emo band they heard on the radio. yes i said emo band and at most a sad excuse for alternitive. saying woah oh oh in a high pitched voice does not make you a punk band. and while honestly trying to listen and see how anyone could possibly like them i laughed at the incredibly stupid lyrics and their failed attempt to slow things down in golden. this new album is as sorry as the last two considering its exactly the same.
