|Interesting line up...Can anybody give me a description of the style??

|I like this, mostly because of Mr.Martin, he is just incredible singer, very underrated. Music is not really metal to me, i would call it melodic hard rock. Most of the songs are mid-tempo. There is some nice melodies, catchy hooks and cool riffs. This is not like the 1st Empire album, that was much more metal. But if u like good singing and floating melodies give this a try.

|What we have here is a CD that if dropped down mid 80’s could have been ‘all the rage”. Why not! Half the players have PLAYED in mid 80’s styled bands. Let’s see… We have Rolf Munkes (ex-Vanize); we have Anders Johansson (Hammerfall), Neil Murray (ex-Whitesnake) and Don Airey (ex- Rainbow, Deep Purple and Silver). Even in the mixing process Stefan Kaufmann (U.D.O.) simple points to the fact that this CD was written, played and ultimately designed to be and sound like mid-80’s metal.

|Big World, Little Man has a memorable hook; Munkes shines on this track...

|You guys got wrong!Its not a prog metal album!its a AOR album, Tony Martin, Neil Murray and Don Airey along these two great german musicians.Sounds like the Martin solo material and something from The Cage project.Very nice drums and guitar solos.

|Si eres fan (como yo) del ex-vocalista de Black Sabbath, entonces tienes que hacerte de este disco, y agrégale los buenísimos riffs y solos de Rolf munkes. Todos los temas son muy parejos. "teenage deadhead" es un medio tiempo con un solo bien precioso. Mis favoritos son la 1,4,5,6 y el tema que cierra el disco tambien es super bueno, escucha y opina 8.7/10

|Hola Carlos, sorry pero nada que ver, esto tiene poco o nada que ver con el prog. Este disco es Hardrock con riffs algo "oscuros" por así decirlo aunque no es mas que Hardrock Melódico. Tony Martin en plena forma, Rolf Munkes se marca unos riffs bien buenos y los solos son lo mejor del disco, junto a la voz de Tony claro está. Quizá la producción pudo ser mas compacta pero está aceptable. No son temas que los llame clásicos pero todos buenos. "Back In The Light" Excelente final. Recomendado.

|Real good not too heavy (Melodic Hard) ROCK record! I LOVE the starting riff of "Back In The Light"... BUT those Drums, aw, they just suck big time! Way too "(pseudo-) proggy"!!! Tony Martin rules!!!! Just my 2 cents... Rock on, Bax

|A good album by Empire...their best effort for me so far is one named "Chasing Shadows" which hasn't been listed at HH yet..."One In A Million","Big World Little Man","You"( ),"Wherever You Go" & "Back In The Light" are my faves...87/100
