ABSOLUTExclusive: I Am Empire

Posted by - 12:34 PM on 01/24/11
I Am Empire's second full-length, Kings, hits stores tomorrow, but you can stream the entire album on their AP.net profile. The release, marking the band's Tooth & Nail debut, brings to mind the likes of Anberlin (with whom the group co-wrote a track), Jimmy Eat World, Muse, and My Chemical Romance. Let us know what you think in the replies.

Much better signing by T&N than any of their other recent ones. Decent release if you like catchy melodies and solos. If you stretch things a little you could potentially throw Letter Kills into the RIYL too.

I would have liked this a few years ago. It's just so average, that it's not even worth it.

I like it apart from the soft song, pretty catchy.

I really like the album. Maybe a little too stuffed with ballads for my tastes, but the crunchier songs are all pretty great. Saints and Sinners is catchy as fuck.

it's a solid record. It's like a mix of Spoken and Dead Poetic with some bad ass guitar solos thrown in

After listening to it, I'd also put Kids In The Way there, too.

So, hearing the songs in context of the whole album, I feel like I'm gonna give these guys more of a chance
