5.0 out of 5 stars Elephant seal of approval 1 Feb 2009
Format:Audio CD
Absolutely brilliant: at last an album that doesn't sound derivative. A rare album that is comparable to Pink Floyd and Queen at their best. I can't understand why it hasn't hit the prog. scene with a bang. "Caught in my Trap" and "Elephant Island" are particular highlights.

5.0 out of 5 stars They blow me away, you don't even know. 22 Sep 2005
By NiQ - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
So, this band...Pilotdrift, is an amazing band with a new amazing album. This album makes me shiver with delight. It features an eclectic mix of mellow, low-key music, to exciting, loud, maniacal laughter-filled music. Sometimes in the same song. This music would be perfect in a movie, although sounds little like soundtrack music. The lyrics are picturesque and very imaginitive. They tell stories of the future of travel, Shackleton's adventure to Antartica(?), and Jekyll and Hyde. (to name a few)

Also, you haven't seen the full picture until you see Pilotdrift live. It's the best live show ever. All the energy you feel on the album, is right there in front of you in person(or people, whatever)

Great Band.Great Album.

5.0 out of 5 stars You thought you knew good music...then there was Pilotdrift! 24 Sep 2005
By T. Bassham - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The power of music has possibly never been captured and wielded as mightily as it now is under the control of Pilotdrift. They are the sound of substance, quality, art and intelligence. Their self released "Iter Facere" was gobbled up quickly, so do not delay with "Water Sphere." Then check out [...] and make sure you see them live. It isn't a concert; it is a masterful experience!

"Water Sphere" is a journey through emotion and imagination, across time, history, and literature. In the "Jekyll & Hyde Suite" the well known story is brought to life as we experience with Jekyll the confusing loss of control to the wicked Hyde, and then celebrate his victorious redemption. As the album draws to the end, the beauty of their work moves beyond curious to overwhelming in "Rings of Symbols" and "So Long." There are no words; you MUST experience it for yourself!

5.0 out of 5 stars A musical journey from beginning to end. 23 Sep 2005
By S. Devitt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Great piece of work from beginning to end. It seems so long since I got an album that I can listen all the way through and this is it. From the opening track Caught In My Trap to the ending track "So Long", Water Sphere is just awesome. What else can I say. Get this album and rediscover the art of music instead of the art of making a buck.

5.0 out of 5 stars This CD blew me away! 22 Sep 2005
By HOD - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I've been listening to Pilotdrift even back before they released this cd, back when they released thier indy cd. This cd made me so happy, the music is so experimental and cool. This isn't your everyday album, it's much more, much different. The album starts with a scary but awesome piece of music that would fit right into a Tim Burton movie, the album progresses and every song changes and morphs into something new! Pilotdrift seem like a band who can't quite keep to one style of music, they want to make many different kinds. The final song is a wake up call from the rest of the album, it's a sum up of everything, brings you back on earth and then shoots you back up in space with an insane drumming session of sorts. You feel confused, but happy and satisfied, and you want to listen to it again to make sure you really heard what you heard. This album is for people who like different music, people who want something new, don't buy it expecting you're going to get the next pop-rock hit release, cause you won't. This is an album that took time, dediction, and guts to make, and it should be appriciated.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning 31 July 2006
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Pilotdrift is one of those rare bands who, when you hear them for the first time, your reaction will be "What the ---- was THAT?" And then you buy their album, listen to it from start to finish over and over, and you're still asking, "What the ---- was that?"

It would be too hard to try to describe them with the musical jigsaw puzzle method--i.e. "Imagine Radiohead crossed with..." so I won't bother The fact is, this album has a little bit of everything in it. Certainly there are aspects of it that remind me a bit of Radiohead circa Kid A, but at different points in the album I am reminded of such diverse things as "Girl from Impanema" and (during one of Pilotdrift's more upbeat songs) some of the bands on the Arts & Crafts label such as The Most Serene Republic. The songs clearly have a strong classical influence as well.

This is a progressive band, no doubt about it, so those who are looking for the kind of drivel they play on Top 40 radio might want to pass on Pilotdrift. But if you're the type who would like to expand his/her conception of what music can be but is sick of buying "progressive" albums that sound like a litter of kittens being fed into a wood chipper, give Pilotdrift a try. You won't regret it.
