Album Review

Autopilot Off's 2002 EP debut did not distinguish itself within the big-label, platinum safety-pin pack. Still, it had some solid hooks and posited the New York combo solidly on the side of (slick, but still...) punk revivalism, as opposed to their peers' penchant for billowy, tear-soaked emo heartache. It's taken a while, but underneath its burnished veneer, Autopilot's 2004 full-length does capitalize on the EP's punkish promise. Punkish, since the only thing grating or controversial about Autopilot Off is the order in which they thank their numerous gear and clothing sponsors. Still, the title track and its rousing follower, "Clockwork," expertly water down punk and hardcore, losing the aggression but keeping the urgent melodic pace and triumphant choruses (especially the latter). And "Blind Truth" and first single "What I Want" — both co-written with punk mercenary Tim Armstrong — bind ragged guitars and propulsive percussion to Chris Johnson's syrupy vocals. Throughout, Autopilot and producer Greig Nori (Sum 41) retain a rough enough edge in the instrumentation to ensure Warped Tour cred. But they're also attentive to the success reaped by acts like Jimmy Eat World and Trapt, who co-opted volatility in a play for widespread accessibility. Fans of these groups will love Make a Sound, as there's very little filler. And Autopilot Off deserve some credit for at least sounding like they mean it, particularly on the 9/11 meditation "The 12th Day." It'd be nice to hear them without the protective mass marketing salve, because underneath the slickness there's a talented band trying to get out.

Sweet

hey This is a really good album because I never heard of them before but then I found them and fell in love with them! I couldnt help but buy the album because of the good lyrics, beats, and instruments. This is really good punk rock/rock. This is an addicting and amazing album, if you like this kind of music, and if you don't, give these guys a chance.

Autopilot Off: GREAT punk rock

"Make A Sound" is one of the best CD's i own, its just really really good.. it can appeal to a large variety of ppl, all with different tastes in music, because its not too "hard" to turn ppl off it, but it IS punk rock, with great driving drums and some really sweet riffs.. the best songs would have to be 12th Day and Clockwork, but all the other songs are incredible too.. neways, this is a great CD that i would reccomend to anyone and everyone!

cool

it's not the best but it's still good. my favourite song is clockworks.
