4.0 out of 5 stars volatile January 9, 2002
Format:Audio CD
a friend turned me onto these guys. they were playing on the same date in boston and i was a bit sick, a bit tired, and about to lose my job. my friends band played first (they rocked) and i was pondering splitting.
a bit later pilot to gunner took the stage at this small bar, packed to stretch the seams of the place, and just all out exploded. particularly with the demise of at the drive-in, i think PTG is the best live band in america right now. stuffed up on a tiny stage, they oozed brooklyn cruel and were tight, tight, tight and intense.
their record does not quite deliver the energy of the live spectacle, but will whet a listeners appetite while they are waiting for the real thing to trot through their town.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fresh and Smart, yeah,...but it just ROCKS! February 25, 2005
By Dre13
Format:Audio CD
When I picked up this cd, I hit play and 11 tracks later, I wasn't sure what had just happened, but the fact that it uncompromisingly rocked was clear. This is definitely a no-nonsense, all-out rock cd, perfect for anything from car chases to love-on-the-go (or whatever you do with your high-speed time). No frills, no gimmicks, just 4 guys busy making great rock.

There have been some comparisons to Jawbox and Jawbreaker, and while these may be relevant, they're not necessarily accurate. In describing their own music, rocky-voiced singer Scott Padden states, "We just play the music we like", which isn't necessarily descriptive out of context, but it makes sense after listening to their music.

Somewhere in between the many different, complex layers in their music, Pilot to Gunner manages to capture you and keep you wide awake. "Games..." blows you away because despite the fact that it sounds like this band never took the traditional path to all-out rock, they ended up producing just that. The song structures are far from conventional, as is the use of their guitars, which is just as rhythmic as it is melodic. Often times the dynamic guitars keep the rhythm as they provide these incessantly unforgettable patterns that are the signature sound of the band. Scott's voice chants as often as it hollers over some thrilling, 90-mph-themes. (Just the feeling: this is NOT a punk band.) His voice matches the edginess of the music fittingly. Marty McLoughlin plays some really unexpected but solid basslines, Patrick Hegarty's voice meshes impeccably with Scott's, all while he provides a ceaseless, dizzying wave of guitar sounds, and Kurt Herrman's drumming is forcefully driven.

4.0 out of 5 stars Junkmedia.org Review - Deserving of a second look May 13, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Ahh, the simple pleasure of a pure indie rock record. With this re-release Arena Rock offers everyone a second look at Games at High Speeds, one of 2001's most unabashedly in-your-face rockers. For those not in the know, Pilot to Gunner is a Brooklyn quartet that delivers pogo-inducing, guitar-fueled anthems with a sort of dark swagger. The music might not always be imaginative, but with rock this good it would be a mistake to start mucking up the works by over-thinking it.
A big selling point of the record is that its overall production comes within respectable striking distance of recreating the battery of the act's live show. Even at relatively moderate volumes numbers like "Bring It Live" and "Put It In The Post" might have you wondering where your earplugs are. The record sounds live, right down to Scott Padden's sweaty Alex Kemp-on-steroids vocals. Fist-pumpers like "Action Items" (a tune not available on the record's original Gern Blandsten release) and "Zero Return" charge out of the speakers with an almost visceral dynamism. Perhaps thanks to the mastering work of the very busy Alan Douches, you can almost feel the Zip-Loc tight rhythm section in your gut and the two-guitar attack often redlines against the front of the mix.
A more obvious selling point is PTG's songwriting, which is solid and typically strings together series of hooks with melodies that prod crowds to holler along. When I saw this act the entire crowd joined in on the words to "It's So Good to Be Here In Paris" and jumped up and down. The lyrics are fairly conversational, and act as almost another musical element, existing in the moment and not really requiring much in the way of analysis.
