All Music Guide - Johnny Loftus
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 ...

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.

    whoa!

    When I first listened to APO's "Clockworks" on SSX 3, I thought it was so cool that I bought the album where it originated. Even though it was only one song I listened to, I developed a love for their other ones, like "Make a Sound" or "The Bitter Truth". Some albums, like Simple Plan or Yellowcard, are cool but get a little annoying if you listen to them three or more times in a row. APO is so original; I never get bored of them. (Considering that I'm a punk rock addict, I'm happy with the album.) Also, the songs have a theme that isn't expressed in a sappy way, but is more meaningful than other punk rock bands like Linkin Park (not saying they sound bad). Bottom Line: Best. Punk. Music. Ever.

    Great Next Release...

    When the guys released the EP it gave everybody just a taste of what we could expect with a full LP, but I never expected what I heard. The album was great!!! With such diverse songs and sounds ranging in all kinds of moods there isn't a boring moment. It's one of those cd's that can get put into the player and never taken out.

    APO ReprEseNts!

    Lyrics are meaningful...not the SSDD, 'same old, same old' stuff. These guys obviously have some life experience.('12th Day' is moving). Looking foward to more from them.

    AWESOME CD! YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED!

    Autopilot off does it yet again... this cd is a masterpiece! They've created songs that are meaningful and catchy (in a GOOD way!). The songs are unique to Autopilot Off. I've seen them 7 times live now, and they never cease to amaze me. They are also the best group of guys to have in one band.. they are so down to earth! Just buy the cd and go to a show of theirs. They ALWAYS hang out with the fans. Oh, how I love Autopilot Off.

    apo makes a sound

    apo is one of my favorite bands and this cd was def worth the wait. i first heard about apo when they were gonna open for the movielife show that i was going to. i heard some good stuff about them so i picked up their ep and it was amazing! theyre even better live and are the nicest, coolest people. so here is their full length follow-up and it rocks just as hard. apo has high energy riffs and chris johnson's vocals make the songs catchy and addictive. my fave songs on the albulm are blessed by a nightmare and blind truth (which they co-wrote with tim from rancid!) def check this cd out if you want original "pop punk" that isnt watered down and stays true to the fans. one of the best bands on the scence right now....APO

    They make an amazing sound

    Autopilot Off's new CD, Make A Sound, is, in a word, impressive. Okay, two words, very impressive. I love the new techniques they incorporate into their songs and their new style. Every single one of the twelve songs is amazing on its own, and even better put with the other eleven on this CD. Also, the price is really low, so it's totally worth it, although in my opinion it'd be worth it even if was 3 times the price.
