Overview

Infinity on High

Growing up is never easy to do in the land of punk-pop -- or, to use the dreaded three-letter word, "emo" -- but Fall Out Boy do a pretty good job of evolving on this, the follow-up to their breakthrough, Under the Cork Tree. The foursome waste little time in serving notice that the times have a-changed, bringing in Jay-Z to introduce the improbably catchy opener, "Thriller" -- a tune that suggests the Foo Fighters tussling with Tom Petty at a high-class strip club. While Hova's appearance is just a cameo, a funky vibe permeates much of Infinity On High, as evidenced by the swinging wink-fest "The Take Over, the Break's Over" and the giddily sex-crazed "I'm Like a Lawyer with the Way I'm Always Trying to Get You Off," the latter produced by R&B master Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds. Yes, they tend to their roots here and there, tossing off short, sharp, hook-filled pogo-inducers like "You're Crashing, but You're No Wave," but it's abundantly clear that the boys have got no intention of lingering in the moshpit long enough to get bruised -- or, for that matter, bored. That cheerful restlessness is most unmistakable on "I've Got All This Ringing in My Ears and None on My Fingers," a horn-driven blast of pure pop with an anthemic infectiousness that's one part vintage Bon Jovi and one part Scissor Sisters -- a combination as addictive as it is unlikely. If you're doing the math, this one is intoxicating to the infinite power.

My friend had listened to this cd and told me that I would love it too. She has introduced me to other types of music such like this cd but this cd beats them all by far! The lyrics are sometimes difficult to make out but the music and sound is absolutely BRILLIANT!
