STRATOVARIUS — Infinite (review)

4/5 ·
Warthur
Setting aside the fact that the cover art is in this horribly dated 3D style which people kept dabbling in during the late 1990s and early 2000s, in some ways you really can judge Stratovarius' Infinite by its cover: it depicts a transition from a drab, grey, humdrum world to a colourful world full of wonder and possibility, and that's exactly the sort of cheerful, uplifting musical experience that the band's sunny style of power metal offers at its best.

It's that optimistic positivity which is the real love-it-or-hate-it aspect to Stratovarius: sometimes it can be a little grating, but when it works, it's a really nice palette-cleanser, and unless you absolutely insist that your metal listening should consist of all gruesome, grim, morbid or melancholy topics and atmospheres all the time, this album will probably put a smile on your face too.
