    Infinity Overhead's smorgasbord of sounds should please every level of Minus The Bear fan.

    Its [closing track Close Company] guitars are huge, its drums are pounding, and it sums up the record perfectly: dark, sexy and gargantuan.

    There are more than enough licks to compensate when that tendency [to sound whiny or emo-ish] gets a little overwhelming. [No.91, p.57]

    The album touches on just about every idea that has made this group a big deal in the first place, but it lacks the sex-appeal of the group's last full length, OMNI, and misses the adventure of Planet of Ice.

    A step backwards, demonstrating that to rehash old sounds you need to prop them up with new tunes.

    Rock this clinical just isn't exciting. [Nov 2012, p.103]

    Another exciting and engaging effort from Minus the Bear. They may not be breaking any new ground here, but at least I know all is well in the world.
