I Am The Pilot - Crashing Into Conciousness

Reviewed by: Scott Irvine (06/29/07)
I Am The Pilot - Crashing Into Consciousness
Released April 24th, 2007
Broken English Records



Who?

Stormily straightforward rock outfit out of Poughkeepsie, NY. Stowing away a sleek technical bite behind balls to the wall drive, there's little to differentiate I Am the Pilot from Halifax and the like.



How Is It?

I'd love to say there's a lot going on over the duration of Crashing Into Consciousness, but I'd be lying. You can get through it in one sitting and come out of it relatively unphased. Vocally, the album is nothing to scoff at and unfortunately you should be able come to terms with the uninspiring, yet forceful, lyrical hitch. However, some of the vocal harmonies between Chad Gannon and Justin Kaczmar sound ridiculously boy band-ish (see "Waiting Takes a Lifetime"). The album starts to pick up a tad towards the end, but by that point you will probably be beyond caring. It's unfortunate such a determined sound couldn't be more well-rounded.

Reminded me a lot of labelmates Just Surrender when I first listened. I like the straightforward rock sound, but its a "take it or leave it" kind of record.

It's not that they sound the same, its if you're a fan of this band -- you'll like Gatsby. I'm sick of having to spell this shit out.
