Infinity(1998). Devin Townsend's second official solo album.

I'm really glad I decided to hold off on reviewing this album until well after I bought it, because if that happened I probably would have initially only given it 3 stars or so. Not to say that I thought it was a bad album or anything, but it's more due to the fact that after being introduced to Devin's musical genius through the hard-hitting straight-forward Accelerated Evolution(2003) and then being absolutely floored by the one-two punch of Terria(2001) and Ocean Machine(1997), Infinity just sort of felt like an underwhelming curveball of bizzaireness. I did appreciate some of the more basic tracks like 'Truth' and 'Christine', which obviously were intended as the songs to hook you in to the album, but as much as I tried at first, the album never opened up to me. At the time I listened to a lot of progressive stuff, and yet Infinity's appeal still managed to escape me, which didn't make any sense. I was sort of expecting the same epic proportions and dramatic build-up that made Ocean Machine and Terria work so well, and so because Infinity didn't hit me over the head like the others, it was pushed to the back of my collection for the longest time, waiting for the right moment to strike. So why did I just give it 5 stars then? Let me explain.

Then something wonderful happened. Fast forward about 2 years. It was 5 in the morning and I was staying up really late working on some graphic design homework. This semester especially I have been pulling at least 2 all-nighters per week and it was beginning to wear me down. Anyone who works in any sort of design field that requires an extensive amount of time outside of work/class to get things done knows exactly what I'm talking about. My brain was slowly becoming fried.

Infinity is one of the densest, most bizarre and brilliant albums I have ever heard. Arguably Devin's best (though Terria and Strapping Young Lad's City are close competition), it is indisputably his weirdest. Apparently Devin was going through some sort of mental breakdown during the recording of this album which is evident by how odd it is. Rather than being odd in a 'hey look at me I'm curaaaaazeee!' sense of the word, there is sinister, harrowing nature about the bizarreness of this album. At times it sounds like a man desperately trying to cling to his sanity (especially the interludes at the end of Soul Driven and War).

The music itself is some of the thickest Devin has made. His trademark 'wall-of-sound' style of producing his music is completely stretched to limit on this recording. The keyboards are huge, the guitars are loud yet fuzzy, the bass is booming, the drums sound triggered and the sheer amount of vocal lines buried in the mix is astounding. Devin has a knack of 'hiding' things in his music that you don't really notice yet the songs simply wouldn't be the same (or more accurately, would feel the same) without them.

The music itself isn't typical Devin either. Although it has its rockers, its ballads and its intense moments of beauty and fear somehow blended seemlessly together, Infinity feels so huge, so eclectic and so bizarre. Devin is a unique musician and Infinity is his most unique album.

This is my first album review ever. Ive decided to review the most difficult album to describe! How does one describe Infinity? Pun intended.

If you are used to Velveeta, Roquefort is way too pungent.

If you are used to Hi C, Pinotage is way to strong.

If you are used to Dr. Suess, Dostoyevsky is way too complex.

Devin's music is very personal. If you are used to mass-marketed music, see the comparisons above. However, this music is certainly not pompous if that is the impression you have gotten so far. Quite the opposite. Its very HUMAN. perhaps the most human out of anything I have ever heard. This quality is perhaps what makes it such a challenging listen for people who are used to listening to mainstream or commercial music that is pounded into othem via radio, movie soundtracks, MTV, etc.

Devin's music certainly cant be put into a "genre". It has elements from differnet many different genres: It has Progressive elements yet lacks the snooty "look at me" arrogance that most prog music has. It has metal elements but is too variant to simply "bang your head" to. The same goes for the emotion in the music. It varies from song to song and more often than not, varies within each song.

As I sit and write, delete , and re-write, I realize its easier to describe what Devin's music is NOT vs what it is. His music is very challenging but also the most rewarding music I have ever listened to. It revolutionized my thoughts on music. Once I was hooked, I havent been able to stop listening to all of his albums. Furthermore, most of my CD collection went to the second hand store or became coasters because of Devin. How can one listen to two dimensional music when three dimensional music exists?
