Maybe one of the best hard rock records... Perfect !

From: SIXXSWINE Date: October 20, 2001 at 22:06
his just might be on e of the few discs that I have given a rating of 10! This one is the real deal, great songs, well crafted, excellent musicianship, sonically there, this is what Michael Jackson's "Thriller" was to pop. This disc ranks up there with current classics like "Hysteria" by Def Leppard & Aerosmith's "Get A Grip." If you don't have this, don't be a prick, go out & buy it! 10.0 on the SWINE SCALE!

From: junik Date: February 17, 2002 at 10:54
great album, but nos as good as "operation: mindcrime". despite of that, you MUST buy this one too...

From: 9 CHAMPIONS A 1 Date: September 7, 2002 at 6:01
Si el tercero era en plan progresivo,el cuarto onda metal,en este quinto album se meten en el terreno del hard melodico pero con sus señas de identidad que llevan por bandera su suprema elegancia,este es su disco mas comercial,y uno de sus mejores gracias a temas de una calidad APLASTANTE.-OTRA JOYA.-

Lose tracks 9&10 and it would have been better. The band went for the $$$ with this album. Still heavy and still amazingly produced but it was too sterile for my tastes. The title track is the only song with even a hint of anger but Anybody Listening? is complete genius. Still Queensryche but now a money hungry version.

From: ted Date: October 6, 2002 at 10:26
de nuevo 9 champions a 1 tiene razon es un trabajo magistral ,pero más accesible y hard rockero ,una delicia de escuchar y casi tan bueno como el operation:mindcrime

From: robert Date: October 30, 2002 at 9:07
igual de bueno q el operation, estos tios son unos pedazo d musicos..

From: Rocker76 Date: November 26, 2002 at 16:30
Killer album from beginning to end! Like Mindcrime, not a bad damn note on the whole thing. Would have loved to have seen this tour with Mindcrime in its entirety!

From: MALLORCA´S ROCK Date: January 31, 2003 at 12:16
Creo que este te entra más rápido, mi problema es que me compre el Operation y este a la vez y me gustó más este en un principio, a la larga me quedo con el Operation. Igualmente es otra joya.

From: Zze Date: October 20, 2003 at 4:23
Empire is not as great as "Operation" but its still good. Most people would classify this as " hard rock" but not me. I believe I´d say this one is the perfect example oif "Soft Metal" just like Fates Warning´s " Inside Out". Sometimes it really borders on hard rock and AOR, is lighter than previus Queensryche, but still good

From: Supernaut Date: April 5, 2005 at 14:13
Unfortunately their last good album......Shame.......

From: rockhardrock Date: August 26, 2010 at 6:47
why shall i write anything here if Zze told almost everything, i will just add my favs on this record: best i can, silent lucidity, jet city woman, anybody listening and another rainy night without you
