Biography

The story of Biffy Clyro is as romantic as it is archetypal. Three childhood friends from Ayrshire formed a band, delivered three albums of abrasive youthful exuberance and finally cracked the big time when their fourth – 2007’s Puzzle – hit the charts at #2. By the time the promotion of their fifth album Only Revolutions had ceased, they were bona fide stars who could ... Read more in Amazon's Biffy Clyro Store

Product Description

BBC Review

Scottish three-piece Biffy Clyro certainly don't hang about when it comes to bashing out new records. Unlike most bands who release an album perhaps once every two to three years, these hard sloggers completely break the mould by releasing an LP every 12 months. The amazing thing is that Infinity Land, their third record, sounds so complex at times that you'd have thought it would have taken them years to complete.

The album, which was produced by the band and with the help of Foo Fighters and Feeder producer Chris Sheldon, is crammed with 13 sprawling songs that are a testament to the Scottish trio's work rate.

The genius of Infinity Land is the band's ability to lace sweet sounding melodies with brutal guitar riffs, heavy drum-rolls and unpredictable stop start arrangements.

The aptly titled opening track 'Glitter And Trauma' is a fine example of this, kicking off with a series of scratchy dance beats before bursting into meaty guitar hooks set against singer Simon Neil's gentle vocals. At times he almost sounds like Queens Of The Stone Age frontman Josh Homme.

But any further comparison ends there. From here on in Neil's vocals switch from harmonious ('The Atrocity') to full on screeching ('Strung To Your Ribcage'). Despite the former track's gentle approach, the words are extremely desolate as the haunting lyrics: 'I don't wanna die. Don't expect me to die', clearly reinforce. This is mirrored in the traumatic 'Wave Upon Wave' where Neil talks about a knife in his hand covered in blood.

Nearly every song is unpredictable. Even the album's heaviest number 'Theres No Such Thing As A Jaggy Snake' completely trips you up with its melodic twists.

As a result Biffy Clyro can only be applauded for pushing the boundaries so brilliantly. Infinity Land is without doubt the band's finest material to date. --Damian Jones

5.0 out of 5 stars Infinity Lands Triumphantly 18 Oct 2004
Format:Audio CD
Biffy have gone and done it again.
I wasn't the most certain of this album when I first listened to it. A couple of the tracks jumped out at me immediately, and I was a huge fan of the single Glitter and Trauma; but the album as a whole didn't strike me as particularly good.
But first impressions can be deceiving and I was oh so wrong. So wrong indeed! I have to warn you now though, the only way I can do this review properly is to compare to Biffy's earlier work. So if you don't know it well, then "these words won't help you if you're looking for answers".
This is quite simply the most varied, intelligent, unpredictable and accomplished album I have ever heard. Starting off with the Eightiesesque dance rock anthem "Glitter and Trauma", with a typical thumping Biffy baseline after the amazing anticipatory (real word?) minute long intro; and finishing with the quiet majesty of "Pause it and Turn it Up", this album never lets go of your brain and eardrums and you just have to jump up and joiun in the lyrics in true Biffy tradition. The music "twists and turns, wrapping around me" as Simon shrieks in "Jaggy Snake", one of the more complicated tracks that took me a few listens from when I first heard it live to 'get', but I love it now.
As for the rest of the tracks, "Strung to your Ribcage" is a frantic warped love song that rips along at breathtaking pace, "Got Wrong" is a grungier almost Weezerlike song of a similar loudness, while sandwiched between them is the catchy cheekiness of recent hit single "My Recovery Injection". Following this raucous start, Biffy pause for breath with the beautifully sad "The Atrocity", which sees Simon sounding his most Scottish ever. A good thing if you ask me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best album of 2004 8 April 2005
By Darren Carroll VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Like Biffy's previous 2 albums I found Infinity Land hard to get to grips with at first and it can often be a frustrating listen; just when you think they're on to something accessible and superb in a particular song it changes via strange time signatures and angular guitars into something completely different and more challenging. You may begin to doubt the album if you are new to the band but the rewards for repeat listening are huge - the album reveals itself to be a truly superb piece of work and, in my opinion, the best of 2004.
Simon Neil's vocals range from fits of screaming to soothing harmonics but always convey pure passion. The music is hard to classify but is rooted in hard guitar indie/indie punk. The melodies swerve and dodge making for a totally gripping aural experience. This non-linear approach keeps the music fresh and there is always something new to discover and a new favourite song to pick!
Very highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best album I own... 1 Jun 2006
Format:Audio CD
Biffy Clyro are a mixture of various music styles, ranging from post-indie and punk to hard rock and metal. However overall I would class them as a heavy rock band with many influences.

Every song is brilliant on this album, there isn't a reason to skip to your favourite, because they're all so brilliant. The lyrics are unique and never tiresome either, backed up with musical and instrumental genius.

Many people may be put off by the singers unpredictable singing style, which ranges from very mellow and calm, then suddenly bursting into fits of screaming and swearing. But don't let this put you off. the songs are all the better for it, trust me...

5.0 out of 5 stars theres no such thing as a poor biffy album 16 Oct 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
to start with, i apologise for that title, its a bit obvious frankly. but there you go.
immaculate album, truly. not a poor track.
jaggy snake is an immediate track, that really stands out, and for me, theres no such man as crasp stuck out, because its the lyrics from jaggy snake, which i had heard prior to the first listen of the record. i laughed alot, on the bus. loudly...
the weird dance beat prelude gives away to the hip swaying glitter and trauma. the weapons are concealed sounds like a bizarre cop show soundtrack with its blaring horns, and then turns into the spiky guitars that you and i both love. wave upon wave upon wave, the tribute to simon neils late mother, is both beautiful and ugly. each song is different, and its obvious the band are progressing. hoorah.
this took me a while to really get into - theres less heavy guitar and more screaming, which i wasnt expecting - and theres probably still more for me to get my head round. if you have just heard biffy, and want to start with them, id reccomend you blackened sky, the debut, which is more accessible and a better place to start really. but if you love em, why dont you have it already? its damn good
mon the biffy

5.0 out of 5 stars To Infinity Land and beyond 14 Oct 2004
Format:Audio CD
Oft described as the Scottish Nirvana, Biffy Clyro have the same almost effortless ease with generating radio friendly hooks in heavy songs.
However Biffy are a whole different ball game - this album could be considered their polished 'Nevermind' period - yet songs like Jaggy Snake and Strung To Your Ribcage are as progressive and meaty and shouty and plainly different to the competition as anything they've previously written.
These sit well as a juxtaposition to more accessable numbers like Got Wrong, My Recovery Injection and Glitter and Trauma.
If you know and love Biffy Clyro already, then you probably own this already (and if not, why not?), and if you don't know them then congratulations you've just discovered your new favourite band.
Honestly this album is not just difficult to put down, it compels you to pick it up and play it again.
Buy it, love it, tell all your friends!
