5 stars I totally agree with the last reviewer!!! In my opinion this is the album of the year so far!! Empires Never Last beats out all of the eagerly anticipated album of this year: Scarsick, Systematic Chaos, Fear of a Blank Planet and Somewhere else. Empires Never last succeeds on all fronts; lyrically, musically, vocally and production! Karl Groom's production is pristine and brings some much needed Oooomph to Galahad's sound. Musically it is a treat. There's ambient keyboards, prog-metallish guitars(though much simpler and easier to digest, not mindless noodling) and a rock solid rythym section. Stu Nicholson's voice is a real treat, it is nice to hear someone who can hold a note and has a rich natural tone! The sounds actually have melodies and you find yourself humming them to yourself; a raraity these days when so much emphasis is placed on how gloomy or depressing you can sound or how fast you can play your instrument! As opposed to all the BIG albums that have come out this year Empires Never Last delivers consistently from beginning to end a GREAT work!!!
