  1. I-Empire is a sweeping conceptual piece with a message as big as its sound and just a bit more enigmatic.
  2. For all its cathartic lyrics, I-Empire is actually packed with dazzling, fast-moving songs, like 'Everything's Magic' and 'Sirens,' that bring together U2's widescreen guitar flights with tuneful, straightforward punk melodies.
  3. 'Magic' isn't the sole highlight: 'Sirens,' an earnest new-wave throwback, may even encourage DeLonge's sternest critics to sing along.
  4. Where "Whisper" came off like an ego-driven side project, I-Empire paints the Angels as a fully-fledged band.
