  • Like My Chemical Romance, the wildly popular emo band Fall Out Boy opted to follow its breakthrough record (in this case, 2005's FROM UNDER THE CORK TREE) with a highly ambitious outing. Although it doesn't quite aspire to the concept-album grandeur of the aforementioned group's BLACK PARADE, 2007's INFINITY ON HIGH showcases a wider musical palette for FOB, which is immediately apparent on the disc's bold first single, "This Ain't a Scene, It's an Arms Race," a dynamic track that mixes a jaunty R&B-tinged melody with the ensemble's signature guitar-fueled energy. Even songs that hew closer to Fall Out Boy's punk-pop template bristle with restless creativity, as on the surging "Carpal Tunnel of Love," which finds frontman Patrick Stump nailing an unexpected soaring falsetto during the remarkably catchy chorus. While INFINITY ON HIGH might rattle fans of the Illinois-based band's less glossy, more direct earlier material, the album is a fitting progression for the earnest group, and stands as an intriguing response to the glare of the mainstream spotlight.

Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.65) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "'This Ain't a Scene' is a bold single, complete with sampled drums and a Nineties R&B hook

Rolling Stone (p.116) - Included in Rolling Stone's "50 Top Albums of the Year 2007" -- "Giant pop-rock songs with confectionery choruses..."

Spin (p.81) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "The band's brawny emo riffs and sugary hooks are still evident on songs like 'Hum Hallelujah,' but Wentz and Co. have beefed up their sound considerably..."

Entertainment Weekly (p.71) - "FOB's guitars still blare, and Stump has evolved into a superb frontman, with a voice that slides supplely from a bratty punk bark into a honeyed falsetto." -- Grade: A-

Q (p.108) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Gleaming with instant hooks, this is a uniformly radio-friendly album. It's also a hugely addictive and likeable one"

Uncut (p.79) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t all adds up to a brave endeavour."

Alternative Press (p.133) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Lyricist Pete Wentz breaks out of his usual first-person perspective without sacrificing any insight or honesty, and singer Patrick Stump delivers some of the band's most gut-wrenching and powerful melodies to date."

Kerrang (Magazine) (p.47) - "[H]ere the musical brain behind the band gets to use the studio as his personal playroom, polishing and buffing the band's sound until it shines brightly enough for mainstream magpies."

Kerrang (Magazine) (p.70) - Ranked #10 in Kerrang's "The Top 20 Albums Of 2007" -- "[T]his album will be a staple of radio rock playlists for years to come."

Q (Magazine) (p.74) - Ranked #38 in Q's "The 50 Best Albums Of 2007" -- "[A] bold, gleaming pop album."

This album is more mainstream than their older albums have been but I think it's still really good. It's great. I enjoy listening to all the songs, and "Golden" is one of my favorite songs. It's that 'sad' song on the CD and does grab-a-hold of your emotions, but it's really good.
JZ being on the CD annoyed me... a lot, because he's already ruined a lot of songs for me and now he decided to go for another band. Luckily it's for only a small part!
Too bad the radio stations are playing the songs non-stop and making them annoying. I can't listen to two of the songs because of that. Hah. Anyway, great CD and worth the money.

No, No, No. I was a fan of Fall out boy's earlier music - but in this album it seems now they have a name for themselves they've become too commercial. This album seems to be a bunch of boys who hav no idea what they are doing, just random noises and notes in odd places, it almost painful to listen to!!! They've just become too (for want of a better word) emo and commercial - stick to their older music to save yourself the disappointment!

These guys have pulled it off again, another awesome CD. They have not-so-happy lyrics and mix it with chirpy sounding music, it just goes so well. I love the first single from this cd, and I'm sure it's going to get them further into the mainstream. Not so good, but they do deserve to be shown the love, because these guys are really good.

I'm the first to admit that this is musical nicotine, crack and heroin rolled into one. Once you buy this album, you will listen to it exclusively for at least two weeks straight: It's THAT addictive. Here is where singer Patrick Stump fully explores his vocal range to great effect with Pete Wentz's sly lyrics and the band explores the world of R&B in their pop-punk ideom. The glossy hooks, slick production and cleverly written lyrics make this into one of what I'll already call one of THE albums of 2007.

OMG THIS ALBUM IS AMAZING! i pretty much have to listen to this every day or else i get sad, coz it is just SO AMAZING! its a real must own album for all the fans, as it is so much more complex than anything they have ever done, and each song has so many layers. i love all the songs on here, they are also insanely catchy and fun to sing along to. at first you think evry song sounds the same, but when you listen to it again and again you realise the true depth of all the songs. i love golden (so emotional), hum hallelujah (great to sing along to), bang the doldrums (killer beat), and thnks for th mmrs (also good to sing along to), but every track has a very special place in my heart. A+++++++++++
