there's a new album and all that coming out soonish, and all this talk about it has made me think. we should go back a few years, and take a moment to remember the truley awsome piece of work that was known as 'Pilot'.

this cd was what started it off for many of the reuben fans out there, and has some of their best work theyve ever done.
without that EP, Reuben wouldnt be where they are now.

all hail 'Pilot'.

Seconded!

Never get bored of listening to Pilot, and no matter how many blindingly good tracks Reuben releases, I'll always love those four (or five).

I just listened to it again- great stuff. Although on reflection, Mark, the drummer at the time, didn't quite bash the pans with enough urgency. But it's the quality of the songwriting that really stands out after so long- everything is just really well thought out.

Pilot remains to be my favourite Reuben record ever. It's just so damn funky.

Nah, he does a good job, really, especially on Crimson. It might be the production, but the drums just aren't powerful enough; they don't have enough oomph. That isn't a criticism of the EP though, it's a just minor niggle of mine.

yeah i think thats more to do with the production than Mark.

Regardless of the not great production, its still an awesome EP just because of the quality of song writing as you said. Its ace. Smile

the production thing is basically down to running out of money to pay for more studio time to mix it... so essentially some of pilot isn't "final" mixes..

I think the kind of rawer production on the songs is what gives it a bit of extra charm.

Yeah I think the production is fine, probably even makes it sound better.
