4 stars Wow, what a surprise this album is! The original Empire was formed in 1974 following the end of Flash, but record labels were not interested. I always considered Empire to sound too cheesy at times, although it maintained the great guitar work by master Peter Banks. This album now pays a very good tribute to those days, adding some new compositions and reworking old ones. In fact, the renewed pieces are the best here, especially "Out of our hands", which surpasses the original. Of the new ones, I really like "Lost in time".

Recommended for all fans of Peter Banks, Flash, Yes and Empire.
