After "Visions" and "Destiny," two very good albums, Stratovarius is back with "Infinite." I'm sure every fan was expecting another album better or at least as good as the previous ones; fortunately, it is!
The album is very… well… Stratovarius. Anyone can recognize the classic "team work" of the guitars and keyboards. The opener is nothing more, nothing less than "Hunting High And Low," one of the band's best songs (and my personal favourite). The chorus of this song is really good and catchy and it puts the listener into the album. Actually, this is a good point of this album: is easy to like it (just like the two previous ones), and I don't mean that in a bad way.
Some other great Stratovarius songs are in this album, such as "A Million Light Years Away" and "Phoenix." It also has some powerful songs, like "Millennium," "Freedom" and "Glory of the World," good ballads as the already mentioned "A Million Light Years Away," "Mother Gaia" and "Celestial Dream" (this last one being a beautiful acoustic ballad, very interesting) and the epic "Infinity."
The bad thing is that even without any bad song only 2 or 3 of them are really special ones, with something different, some creativity. Every single song is enjoyable and if you like Stratovarius then buy it, you can be sure that it is a very good album, believe me. Just don't expect something too different from the others.
