"...I- empire is the second half of our first album. It reflects an idea that the world is yours for the taking, and all that exists, exists inside you. It can be something as trivial as a personal struggle, or as grand as the inescapable idea of world peace.
Please take a short 55 minutes to enjoy the album. Listen to it blasting from your car, maybe on a hill over-looking a city...and all the while, pretend that the city, as it stretches far beyond the horizon, is all yours for the taking."

Personally, I love Angels & Airwaves. I love the lyrics and the feel of it. Call it musically shallow, but sometimes I'm allowed to enjoy that kind of music! It's like junk food! Even though you know you shouldn't, you do, at great length. I recommend AVA to everyone who's ever liked to feel good after hearing a song.
Also, if I am at AX this year, I will be finding the nearest hill overlooking San Diego or Los Angeles or wherever it is and I will be blasting I-Empire from my car, with a single tear rolling down my eye. You're all welcome to join me.
