I AM THE PILOT
CRASHING INTO CONSCIOUSNESS
Poughkeepsie, NY quintet I Am The Pilot go for the alt rock brass ring on the 11-track CRASHING INTO CONSCIOUSNESS. Laden with big hooks that could ilicit massive sing-alongs, this outfit's blend of Finch, Senses Fail, Taking Back Sunday, and Bayside is ready for modern rock radio airplay and the affection of teenage girls everywhere on cuts like "These Machines" and "Rescue". If you attend Taste of Chaos every year, don't be shocked when you find these guys on next year's bill, as their big rock sound is perfect to fill the void in your collection between Alexisonfire and The Used. But don't expect anything groundbreaking, just a solid effort that will pique your attention span in between main stage layovers.
