3 years in the making, Shiny Toy Guns have finally released their first album via a major record label. For those of you who do not know, many of the songs on this album are the 3rd 'released' version of them. Having followed them for almost a year and a half, I can honestly say that I am very proud and very pleased with this band's success. They are great people that make great music. The clarity and depth of all the songs on the album is superb. The 'final' versions of all the songs (except for Chemistry of a Car Crash and Jackie Will Save Me) all sound better than they ever have before. Combining their old sounds (those who have heard We Are Pilots v1 or v2 know) and moving them towards a more deep direction with a more rock and roll edge. My only disappointment with the work is that I liked v2's version Shaken a lot more and recommend to everyone that buys this album to try and find a copy of it, as well as other songs from their previous work that never made to this final cut: Turn to Real Life, Rocketship, Photograph, Weather Girl, Sky Fell Over Me, Joel's Theme, I Promise You Walls and, Stripped (AMAZING cover of Depeche Mode).

All in all, it's almost impossible to remain still when listening to Shiny Toy Guns. Their music, their words, their purpose covers the whole spectrum of emotion, energy, inspiration, nostalgia, and passion. Songs like Rainy Monday, You Are the One, Starts With One, Chemistry of a Car Crash, Stripped (older), and Shaken (older) are so raw in this way. Where as songs Don't Cry Out, You Are the One, Rainy Monday, and Le Disko are just begging to be danced to. Don't take Shiny Toy Guns at face value; there is more to offer here than just mere 'electronica/80's synth pop/rock'. Buy this album!

Really, this is the truth. Of all the new new wave bands out there now, there are a few good ones, like Maverick's Clear Static and Warner Bros' Mute Math, but only LA's Shiny Toy Guns understand this genre best, while keeping a foot in the 21st century here and now, to keep things fresh, and not too retro.

Why are STG better than everyone else in this area?? Four things: melancholia, darkness, textured atmosphere, and really good hooky songwriting. Things remain interesting with the alternating of Chad's and Cara's singing...they are different enough, with a male/female approach, but with an interesting balance & point/counterpoint. Their lyrics are thoughtful, uplifting, sweet, and sad in spots, and their musical approach of equal parts analog synth and herd-edged guitars, with the best drumming since Keith Moon (Really!!) by Mikey, really knock STG out of the park.

If there's any of these type of bands who deserve success most, it's Shiny Toy Guns, period. There's an ART to their music, not not a whiff of concern for commercial success...if they do succeed (decent debuts on the Billboard charts so STG are on their way), it will be on their own terms, which is awesome. Just caught STG live last night, and I was literally stunned by what I saw...not only do the songs sound great live, there's more of an edge...Mikey was really wailing too, damn!!...they are musically diverse, with Cara and Jeremy switching instruments, and they are visually striking, so watching them is as much a feast for the eyes as the tunes are for the ears.

Anyhoo, on this Version 3.0 of "We Are Pilots", the songs themselves are stunning...

This album is a m a z i n g. You've probally heard their song " Le Disko" on the radio and while that song is good it is no where near the best song on the cd.

Their cd has a dark feel, almost like your driving around in the rain. Their lyrics are well written and their sound is very experimental and fresh.

Great tracks: waiting, rainy mondays, chemistry of a car crash, and we are pilots.

You may not get into the record at first, because the rest of cd doesn't sound much like their hit single, but give it a try- you'll loooove them

After relentless touring and gaining a steady following via word-of-mouth and a pinch of help from myspace, Shiny Toy Guns have finally arrived with their major label debut, We Are Pilots.

11 songs make up the tracklist, most re-recorded from former demos with some new additions, so there is something here for fans new and old. The production on these tracks is a welcome enhancement to the already great songs, some of them sounding completely refreshed (When They Came For Us) while others haven't changed too much (You Are The One).

Overall I would say this is one of the most solid debuts I have heard in quite some time. Why don't you have a copy yet?

We Are Pilots ver. 3.0 is a masterpiece! Crisp and clear from start to finish with songs that knock you off your feet. If you haven't fallen in love with these kids yet, you're about to. I was introduced to their music about a year ago, and I still can't get enough...Thanks, Mikal Moore! :)

Check out their myspace to hear songs and get a better look at what makes up this amazing band, [...] That's how I discovered them.

AWESOME. PERIOD.
