“HIGH-ENERGY ROCK WITH A TOUCH OF PROG Progressive rock is a tag often placed on Cincinnati band The Infinity Ball. However singer and guitarist Rick Reed says that label isn’t entirely accurate. “There certainly are progressive elements, but we’re more focused on songs and melody,” he said. “Whatever fusion elements you’re going to bring in, you want to that in a way that makes sense to the song and serves the songs. The only reason we don’t like progressive is simply because it tends to be more self-involved, or at least has that connotation.” Although he bristles at the prog-rock label, Reed does take an open-minded approach to songwriting. Infinity Ball’s debut album, “Undressed for Success,” was released in May 2009 and reveals an adventurous pop-rock act that covers a vast sonic terrain without seeming unfocused. However, it’s more akin to David Byrne than Robert Fripp.”
