This album is a lot more instant, and more upbeat and uplifting. I think that it could get me out of any bad mood. As many have said this album has more variety, while still keeping true to the AVA sound.
Shame the critics enjoy bad mouthing them so much, i think its simply because the band are singing about love on nearly all their tracks, which is just too cheesy for the cynics out there, but don't listen to them, this is awesome stuff!
So when my copy finally arrived through the post naturally I rushed to play it, expecting similar. Yeah the two tracks I'd heard were there as epic expected, yet the rest seemed somewhat lacking, not much caught my attention and alot seemed very very similar to each other and the previous album.
Now about 5 listens later I've totally changed my mind, in a similar way to the first album it simply gets better and better. You can't appreciate how sheerly amazing it is with one or two listens. Everything's Magic is exiting, Secret Crowds epic, Lifeline is great, and Rite of Spring provides something new, even the bonus It Hurts live track adds a tiny twist on a great song to make it seem fresh and new. As with We Don't Need to Whisper, the opening track is immense, the first, and every time you listen it sends shivers down your spine, following on perfectly from Valkyrie Missile.
Tom Delonge has definitely created something new and immense with Angels and Airwaves. We Don't Need to Whisper created this impression. I-Empire totally reinforces it. Its perfect music for any situation, it isn't too loud, too quiet, too slow or too fast. Great for relaxing, reading a book, doing work, whatever.
The only major flaw with We Don't Need to Whisper was the lack of variety with some of the songs, which I personally didn't mind as the style of music that was repeated was excellent.Read more ›
DeLonge's talent for melody and simple, yet powerful lyrics appear once again with even more strength. Put together with the band's unique sound, Angels And Airwaves deliver incredible music which will leave you singing along.
Perhaps the most amazing thing about Angels And Airwaves' music is their ability to instill feelings of euphoria, hope and self-belief while listening, which have been experienced by many people.
Even when you are feeling at your worst, this album has the power to pull you back from seemingly inescapable feelings of hopelessness and sadness. (Being someone who suffers from depression I can honestly say that Angels And Airwaves' music has made a significant impact on my life and my mood and often leaves me smiling).
If you want a change from the current "doom and gloom" output of the majority of modern rock bands and want something uplifting, I highly recommend I-Empire.
There is not a single bad song on the whole album. It is an incredible record. My favourite of 2007 so far and I like a lot of music.
Buy this album. It is is simply put...beautiful.
Although the songs were well structured, and had cinematic intros, a lot of them sounded the same, and some songs went on far too long in the outros, that I would just turn them off after the bridge.
The album is very downbeat and relaxed compared to DeLonge's previous material. The melodies in a lot of the verses of those songs were boring and tuneless, although most of the the choruses were big and powerful.
After I while, I gave that album another chance and it has become a favourite of mine... the album as a whole flows like a story and the soundscapes and lyrics are beautiful.
Listening to I-Empire, from the very outset it is clear the band have given the music a kick up the backside.
Call To Arms carries on with the long introductions of the first record, but here teh intro is less synth and harder with military style drumming, and when the verse kicks in, DeLonge's machine gun melody takes you on a euphoric rollercoaster ride until this song builds to a scintillating climax, the band finally achieve (what they had always threatened but failed to do in the past) - hit you with a chorus so damn big it will lift you off the ground.
Everything's Magic, Sirens and Rite Of Spring see DeLonge return to his pop-punk past, these songs are stripped down, have catchy, well-rounded melodies that DeLonge sings with ease. New addition Matt Wachter adds some quality bass-playing to the whole thing, most evident on these songs, and much missing from the first record.
Lifeline and Breathe are well crafted ballads, if not brilliant rip-offs of U2's With Or Without You and Springsteen's The Rising.Read more ›
