4 stars Calculating infinity is one of the masterpieces of mathcore whether you like it or not. A lot of people just call it "noise" , and they are right because it is noise, but the album is more than that. Calculating infinity is just as important to metalcore and mathcore as it is to progressive metal and experimental metal, because it's not only loud, but it is beautiful. The jazz-like experimentation and time signatures also exist. The musicians are undeniably great at their instruments, just like jazz musicians. While people can dismiss the album by calling the lyrics meaningless (only because they're screamed most of the time) and just noise, it is more than just that, and it does take some good ears to listen to it just like other mathcore albums, you will find meaning and gorgeous music that lies under the barrier of screaming and "noise." 4.5 stars.
