4 stars Empire represents undoubtedly a very good mix between hard rock, pop and prog; a work that was able to capture a wide audience at the time and also succeeded in withstanding the test of time quite well. I also have very pleasant memories regarding this album which formed the soundtrack of a very "hot" and crazy summer in 1991 on a beach in Tuscany (where I live). Among all the tracks in the album, all of good quality, the one I still listen with deep longing is "Silent Lucidity" that I consider being one of the (if not the) most beautiful rock ballads ever written. I strongly recommend this album that represents the greatest achievement of the band together with "Operation Mindcrime", two excellent hits that the band unfortunately was no longer able to match afterwards. My final rating is: 4 stars.
