"Raised On Indie"

The Pilot Lies is an alternative rock band with a twist of pop, and they add a little more twist with the addition of an ambient style.

On first listen this cd has a unique style. I see some comparisons to Our Lady Peace, Smashing Pumpkins, Placebo and Cave In, while I agree in some of those comparisons, I still feel they have their own unique style, which should satisfy the bands desire to be different.

The track Sunlight is a short track, introducing you to some great acoustic guitar playing and a diverse voice of William. The track Every Time immerses you into their alternative stylings and has a very upbeat style. This track really showcases the drums and adds a little bass, adding a little guitar solo here and there the song instrumentally is mpressive. The track The End is a very impressive track with again some very impressive vocals from William and as seemingly in each track the drums and guitars are awesome. Definitely can hear the ambient style in this track. They continue to mix-up the stylings between songs and pull it off impressively. As they so candidly ask throughout the album, Do Things Look Any Better? I can only wonder how they were before this release, but definitely while hearing the album things for The Pilot Lies will only get better....

The single off their album, Proud Father, I believe would be their most popular track. Throughout the complete album they maintain a consistancy of being unique and having a unique style. They also have very impressive instrumentation, and very meaningful lyrics. This band is defintely going somewhere and is absolutely worth a listen. - Brian Morris -

"Smother Magazine"

'Thick guitar crunch with solid bass that provides one helluva backdrop for the rhythm to settle upon, The Pilot Lies write compelling indie pop-rock songs that are bound to be confounding and yet thoroughly entertaining all at once. The melodies often swell up to a big mass before they just bubble over and its almost too much to take and thats precisely when this trio from Syracuse pulls back. There are elements of 90s alternative rock bounded up throughout Do Things Look Any Better? but the space rock atmospheres push it far away from those groups. Good stuff!' - J-Sin -
