As one dives into the debut album from Typhoon Ferri it becomes quickly evident why this band is so well-sought out by fans. The energy level of their music is almost an extremity, while the melodic element is the magnetic factor. The drumming is outstanding, with a drive that keeps each piece going into active melodic overdrive. With the opening number, "Infamous," the band takes an infectious pop/rock-driven melody, adds strikingly relevant lyrics to the formula, and comes up with a perfect combination. The intensity and magnetism of the rhythm section is an element rarely found. Ferri and Montgomery, bass and drums respectively, play as if they have been together for ages. They are tight beyond belief and a pure joy to listen to. When McInnis brings his vocals and guitar to the mix for "Infamous," one is slammed by the greatness accomplished. With a sound which is focused around a 2001 rock formula, Typhoon Ferri is a first-class band ready to rock the house. Their music is fresh, with phrases and melodies which are filled with original conceptions. The vibrancy in their music comes through in each presentation, and one need not have a vivid imagination to picture the band live. With all of the material on the album being original compositions, the band clearly displays that they have the ability to write quality tunes. Although none of the songs are overwhelming in breaking from traditional song structure, they are different enough to be recognized and appreciated. The band's performance on each piece is nothing short of excellent, which contributes greatly to the overall magnetism of their material. If Typhoon Ferri improves consistently with each release, listeners should be prepared for a wild musical journey destined to make Typhoon Ferri infamous.
