  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. Essentially, Infinity On High is From Under The Cork Tree, except this time done well.
  5. On Infinity on High, they expose the secret life of boys, in hilariously bloodcurdling detail.
  6. They may not be happy, but they haven't forgotten to be catchy.
  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.

    I never quite understood the hate for this album. I am proud to say that this is by far my favorite Fall Out Boy album, and maybe even one ofI never quite understood the hate for this album. I am proud to say that this is by far my favorite Fall Out Boy album, and maybe even one of my favorite albums of all time. Sure, it's a different sound than the normal Fall Out Boy, but it shows that Fall Out Boy are capable of change. From the anthemic opener "Thriller" to the amazing final two tracks "You're Crashing, But You're No Wave" and "I've Got All This Ringing in My Ears and None on My Fingers", this album always keeps me thoroughly entertained from beginning to end.

    Fall Out Boy's songs are undeniably catchy. I'm not sure anyone can deny the power of their hooks. I like to call them pop punk Fall Out Boy's songs are undeniably catchy. I'm not sure anyone can deny the power of their hooks. I like to call them pop punk motown. But for me one problem is that their lyrics are so ridiculously convoluted that it's clear they have little to say. It's easy to right a bunch of jabberwocky and claim to be smart (yes, I've heard them claim that they're smart). This is not a case of people misunderstanding their genius, they just make no coherent sense. And I must admit I would feel better about defending their music to my elitist friends if Pete Wentz were not such a royal douche. Expand

    What is this! I though I was listening to Maroon 5 for at least half of this disk. 'This Aint A Scene' best it gets. Its so cheesy What is this! I though I was listening to Maroon 5 for at least half of this disk. 'This Aint A Scene' best it gets. Its so cheesy and not cool, and not punk and not clever. Its not nice to your ears, not catchy, not funky and Id leave the room if this came on. I came in with an open mind too. Expand
