I never listened full to this album (only to a few songs) and I got a bit time on my hands and do a little review on The Empire Strikes First.
Basicially the intro of the album BUT with the dramatic/mysterious key-sound of the next song.
This is one of my favorite Bad Religion tracks ever. The song fits everything perfect. The lyrics (top notch), the dramatic sound and heavyness. I saw them perform this song live on a DVD and the crowd went apeshit. And they are damn right. Fantastic song. 10/10
The opening lyrics and heavy drums are pretty damn good here. I'm not that big on the refrain but the part at 1.07 is tremendous. Great to sing along with. 8/10
The intro riff is pretty cool and the opening vocals as well. I love the "tell me what we fightning for?" "I can't remember anymore!"-part. Pretty cool, just like the emotional "Ahh's" and stuff. …
