Infinity biography
Founded in San Francisco CA, USA in 1977 - Disbanded in 1982 - Reunion show in 1992

Another short-lived American Prog band, Infinity was founded in 1977 by Pianist George Gregory, and guitarist Lance Swing. Apparently they had a lot of friends, as the bands album lineup has one of the largest rosters I have ever seen.

With five of them contributing to vocals. They recorded several tracks during the initial years, but disbanded before making a proper release. As is the story with many bands, interest in their music resurfaced in the '90s. This led to a reunion, and compiling recorded material. The result was the self-titled 1996 release.

The usual comparisons are to Gentle Giant and Starcastle (which then leads to Yes), and a hint of Canterbury. However, they have the distinction of being praised in their own right. The album itself may seem disjointed, due to it being a melding of '70s and '90s tracks.

The compositions do stand up individually, with strong instrumentals, and themes running from mysticism, to outer space, and contemporary issues.

Review by maryes

5 stars Already in the first audition of this disk I was right that it is treated of an indispensable item in any progressive collection (mainly if you are a lover of Symphonic-Prog and of Folk-Prog). Clearly influenced by icons of the progressive movement of the seventies, such as, GENTLE GIANT, YES, GRYPHON & ENGLAND, or still, for those that like a more recent reference his sound reminds me another American band called ADVENT. The American band INFINITY presents a work rich in the vocal and instrumental melodies and arrangements , mixing moments of aggressiveness with others of calm and serenity, bringing in t his work aggressive and distorted guitars , with keyboards synthesizing vibraphones , syncopated rhythms mixed with martial rhythms, beautiful vocas l, sometimes all this in a single track (as in the case of the track 1 "Chester"). I cannot detach any track, because the disk is fantastic from the beginning to the end. If you still don't know, accept my advice, don't waste more time. My rate is 5 stars, without trace of doubt!!!

1 stars This American band has strong Yes influences but also the complexity of Gentle Giant. They are quite close to Yezda Urfa. However, I've never been able to 'get into it'. Don't get me wrong, I really like Yezda Urfa but the Infinity album doesn't have the "craziness". I'm sorry to say I found the album plain and boring... Sorry if I offend someone. So send me a mail if you want my copy. I believe it's hard to find now !

Review by nnay26

5 stars What ?? Why am I the first person to review this album on here ?? This album is 12 excellent prog tracks (released in 1996 but originally from the late 70's) reminding us of Genesis, Yes, Camel... all the way through, but nevertheless with their own style. I only needed one listen to perfectly apprecate this album. No track is a throwaway. Probably not one of the easiest to get hold of, but is well worth the search, you won't regret it...
Thanks to ProgLucky for the artist addition. and to Quinino for the last updates
