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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Infinity > Universe November 25, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I once read on an internet message board where someone identified each and every Devin Townsend album and I thoroughly enjoyed his descriptions. He said: SYL = Fire, Ocean Machine = Water, Physicist = Clouds, Terria = Earth, and Infinity = Universe, while Devin Townsend equals Soul. Now I don't know how he reached these conclusions, but if you're familiar with Devin Townsend's music (when I say "familiar", I don't mean if you've just "heard" some of his songs!), you will definitely see the correlations between his albums and the aforementioned themes.

But still, it's slightly wrong. Infinity is BIGGER than the entire universe; it's larger, more powerful and more absorbing too. What's more is, Infinity isn't even my favourite Devin Townsend album. I happen to like Ocean Machine and Terria better, but from an objective point of view, Infinity is wider in scope and more eclectic in songwriting than both albums put together.

Infinity is a study in depression and mental stability. It depicts some of the hardest times in Devin's life. He wrote, produced, recorded and engineered it himself and he was was institutionalized (at his own will) shortly after he finished the album due to bipolar disorder. If you truly immerse yourself in this record, you are bound to think a 'normal' person wouldn't have managed to create such compositions. The album reeks of madness from start to finish and this is particularly displayed in "War" and "Ants". You just have to listen to the creepy intro of "War" over and over again (with good headphones) and see how feelings of chaos are disguised under main guitar riffs. The chorus in this song is one of the most haunting lyric lines ever. Each time Devin screams "You can't feel love when you are not being loved!" gets more and more tragic with each second.

5.0 out of 5 stars He's not insane, he's just smarter than you June 20, 2005
Format:Audio CD
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.

Devin Townsend. That is all. Are you a Devy fan? Buy this album. This is by far one of his weirder albums. But it's pure gold.

5.0 out of 5 stars killer as always
Killer cd as are all of DT's releases. Opens strong and finishes well with little filler in between. Lot of emotion on this one kind of like Terria.

This is a very well made and very diverse for Townsend. The songs are very well crafted, well sung, and the lyrics are well written. Excellent album.

Infinity shows more of Devin's musical diversity. It is not as hard as most Strapping Young Lad (SYL) but still kicks nicely. Read more

If the band Suicide did not exist, I would say that this is unequivocally the sound of insanity, but instead I will say it is one of its finest examples. Read more
