    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.

    The fluidity is back, all the parts gelling easily into a whole.

    The band threatens to be as precious as a teddy bear, especially during ballads, and often feels too eager to show off its many mastered styles, but consistency and sincerity keep Minus the Bear from descending into showboating dilettantism.

    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]

    'Infinity Overhead' finds [Minus the Bear] pondering The Big Questions, confirming suspicions that amateur existentialism and post-millennial indie rock comprise a winning formula.

    So many of its melodies tend to bleed into the background, and it takes time to pick apart what's worthwhile.

    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.
