Korean boy group Infinite caught the attention of many with its sixth mini album titled, “Infinite Only.” This album features seven tracks that have both slow and Electronic Dance Music (EDM) influences. Much like their previous mini album “Reality,” the boys present an edgy and bad boy appearance.

The album opens up with a short symphonic instrumental titled, “Eternity.” Having no vocals, the track allows listeners to focus on the dramatic changes in tune and speed. This exhilarating intro leaves many anxious to see what else the album has in store.

“The Eye,” which is the album’s title track, leads in mainly by vocals with the audio playing faintly in the background. The first verse leads to a climax, where the chorus bursts out with strong vocals and a heavily-influenced EDM audio. The song is about the struggles of the members getting over a break up, as if they are imprisoned by their thoughts of their former loved one.

The music video, equivalent to “The Eye,” features the group’s mental and physical struggles, as well as their sharp choreography. The members are seen protecting the others from going towards the light, supposedly not giving into temptation. As a result of the members fighting with one another, they end up hurting themselves, as well as each other.

Taking away from their usual style, Infinite brings “Air,” a track that ventures deeper into the EDM genre. Unlike the stressed vocals in “The Eye,” “Air” features more rapping, keeping vocal scarce until the end. This upbeat track keeps listeners hooked from the beginning and captivated by its synthesized tune.

One of the slower tracks on the album, “One Day,” continues the struggles of the members losing someone important. It talks about how, if they had “one day,” to make amends, they would do so.

It is expressed in “True Love” that the person the members are after is someone they loved. This upbeat dance track features what the members liked about that special person and how they were their true love.

“Zero” combines both EDM and dance into a fast and upbeat tempo. The rapping and vocals are equally balanced throughout the track, with a higher vocal range. Unlike the title track, this song is about the members begging someone important not to leave and how they will stop at nothing for a chance to keep them.

To wrap up the album, an acoustic track, titled “Thank You,” expressed the members dedication to the person and profound love for them. They ultimately thank that person and end the album on a happy note.

Altogether, Infinite showed listeners a new side of its music, grouping all of the tracks into one theme, while also using different genres of music. The album is recommended for those interested in EDM, dance and ballad and is available on iTunes and YouTube.
