Anyways, what we have here is about one third of a great album and the rest either uninspired filler or just sheer awfulness. No emotion at all. Yep, this is “good” old European power metal right here, taken to a whole new ridiculous level of cheese. Besides being identical to practically every other song Stratovarius has ever done, it also manages to be even worse than those with its horrible lyrics and groan-inducing chorus.

Opener Hunting High and Low just personifies everything that’s wrong with Infinite. What Can I Say? Sttatovarius this would have been a good song if it, I don’t know, had a good vocal performance to back it up, but Kotipelto just makes it worse.
Write a customer review. Get to Know Us. EmpyrealMay 14th, About as subtle as a bowling ball thrown at full force to the face. This fact leads to a lot of people bashing this album for being too similar. Its epic, its heart racing, and it should be in movies as well as other tracks from this album.
I guess ‘A Million Light Years Away’ is the catchiest song here, since it features a memorable keyboard hook and one of the most powerful choruses, using its mid-pace to stick in the mind, but it’s the likes of ‘Millenium’, ‘Freedom’, and ‘Glory of the World’ that leave the general impression of ztratovarius album’s character. Image Unavailable Image not available for Color: Meaning that as soon as they decide to borrow a section from an older song, it stratovvarius usually appears pretty damn obvious to even the most casual of Stratovarius fans.
Though a mere 9 tracks each one of them pack enough power to light up a huge city on just the solos. Amazon Second Chance Pass it on, trade it in, give it a second life. Page 1 of 1 Start over Page 1 of 1. AmazonGlobal Ship Orders Internationally.
stratovarrius The rest of the song is just a 9 minute roller coaster of changing tempos, dynamics and a few meter changes here and there. It certainly isn’t Polaris or Elysium. The keyboards of Jens Johansson play a large but not overwhelming role in the shaping of some of the songs, diddling along like a second guitar on the more energetic likes of ‘Phoenix’, while adding “epic” remember those scare quotes, I’m coming back to them in a minute atmospheres, choirs, and strings to some of the slower songs and instrumental sections.
Audio CD, February 6, “Please retry”. This combination of Stratovarius’ stratovariux most popular albums is fantastic.
Infinite (Stratovarius album) – Wikipedia
A lot is made of the fascination that some power metal bands have with Queen, and there’s something of a link on this album as well. I urge you to give this album a chance and really pay attention throughout the whole thing, I guarantee you’ll find something to love in every song. If you’re not, keep on walking.
This album also coincides with Jorg Michael quitting ARP to focus on this band more, which in retrospect probably made sense as they played a less progressive style of metal, thus allowing for less emphasis on drumming.
With the exception of Mother Gaia there isn’t a bad song on Infinity. If Stratovarius would dismiss of this stupid way to include classic riffs stolen from Bach or the likethose songs would probably be much better.
Just listen to the ridiculous part where the song drops out for this polka-like melody and Timo Koltipelto singing like a lounge singer. It’s exactly how one would imagine a standard power track, except of the very high quality. Free business-day shipping within the U. The only weak link I can find is Glory of the World which isn’t really bad as much as it is generic.
Have one to sell? If it’s not a style that you’d cross the street to hear yet, I’m tempted to saythis isn’t quite the album to convert you. But all these songs don’t reach the symphonic majesty of the epic but still rather heavy “Infinity” and especially the almost classical and very smooth and progressive “Mother Gaia”.
