Editors’ Notes

Infinity Overhead marks Minus the Bear’s return to the muscular sound that defined the band a decade ago. MTB delivers plenty of bracing riffage, veering from brutal metalhead chords to the distinctive string-tapping effects that have become a band signature. Beyond reclaiming old ground, Infinity Overhead shows forward motion in the maturity of its songwriting. Whether he’s searching for a closer human connection in “Steel and Blood,” dissecting a troubled relationship in “Lonely Gun,” or digging the wonders of the cosmos in “Diamond Lighting,” lead singer Jake Snider conveys subtle emotions with a cool yet yearning touch. The dreamy balladry of “Heaven Is a Ghost Town” gives him an expansive space to ponder the afterlife amid murmuring synthesizers and lustrous strings. As an ensemble, MTB sounds fully rejuvenated as it moves from the R&B-inflected “Lies and Eyes” into the nervously melodic “Listing” and the sleekly propulsive “Zeros.” The closing track, “Cold Company,” reveals the band’s progressive rock affinities with torrential guitar notes and hard-charging dynamics.

Customer Reviews

I'd give it a 2.5 stars if I could.

I don't like the way the vocals were mixed. Too in your face, leaves you wanting more of the instruments.
Very Incubus like, that's a negative. Guitar tones and melodies are pretty good.

The Bear has not progressed this time around.

Minus The Bear wrote one of my all time favorite albums (Highly Refined Pirates) and another amazingly great album (Planet Of Ice). They have also written some of my favorite songs like "I'm Totally Not Down With Rob's Alien" and "Pachuca Sunrise." Unfortunately, these last two albums seem to have the same sound, not like the Bear that we have all fallen in love with. I have accepted the fact that I will never hear them play anything like Highly Refined Pirates ever again, nor do I want them to write the same album again. They have always been catchy, heartfelt, and been able to catch us with their beautifuly layered melodies. However, this new poppy sound, with more of a pulse rather than displaying the great drum work that we have heard in the past is killing me. Not to mention the way Jake used to play his guitar was so unique and set their entire sound apart from the rest. That is what separates a legend or a classic album from what is 'cool' at the moment. This album certainly won't stand the test of time, but it's worth a few listens, and can definitely put you in a good mood.

Do it. Minus the Bear. There is Infinity Overhead! Do it.

Awesome from the very first riff to the last sweet note of the entire album. Not just because of my excitement for this great new album, but after years of enjoying their music and catching them live I say this one's the best yet! There's Infinity Overhead for this album on my daily playlist.

With catchy song titles like "Hey, Wanna Throw Up? Get Me Naked," "Monkey!!! Knife!!! Fight!!!," and "Lemurs, Man, Lemurs," it's hard not to be at least a little bit curious about this Seattle-based quintet. Featuring members of Botch, Kill Sadie, and Sharks Keep Moving, Minus the Bear emerged on Seattle's music scene in 2001 with the release of their six-song EP This Is What I Know About Being Gigantic. The band comprised guitarist Dave Knudson, vocalist/guitarist Jake Snider, drummer Erin Tate,...
