In his second solo release, John Amen further develops and expands the songwriting prowess displayed on his first release, All I\'ll Never Need. With Ridiculous Empire, Amen more expansively employs free association, deep imagery, and impressionistic portraiture, delivering epic lyrics via infectious melodies. Also present in this release is a greater attention to instrumental layering. The use of electric and acoustic guitars, mandolins, strings, organs, back-up vocals, and various effects all contribute to creating soundscapes that beautifully complement Amen\'s voice and phrasings.
