"Pilot" is a good example of what happens when you combine Russian street song with American hard-rock. I'll tell you: nothing good. Hard-rock has vanished during the assimilation process, though the musicians are sure that they play "rather hard rock", especially because in the beginning of their music career they used to play songs by Faith No More and Pearl Jam. Street song was transformed into something very tedious, but you can find all specific attributes of this music style in "Pilot" album: naive anguish, recognizable city landscapes (St Petersburg is "Pilot's" native city) and frequently repeated word "vodka". Once they loved heavy metal, wrote songs about drugs, and their previous album, "Livve Parrrty", had a nice label on it: "Careful. Rude language". They've changed. "War" is monotonous, its philosophy is boring: in brief, it's an album about street cats who are dying because of endless war between human beings and the world. Stylish ending of this album is indistinct because of three bonus tracks, without which the release would have been much better. Some arrangements are so lifeless, several tunes are so dull, and the most part of lyrics is so helpless that it even becomes funny. Well, sometimes lyrics are really keen, and anyone who sometimes feels alive will agree with "Pilot's" philosophy: "I know how to kill time, I'll put my watch on the railways". Well, "War" is something like unnecessary morning truth after a hard night: the only thing you remember after this kind of nights is terrible screams - maybe there have been a fight, or maybe you've listened to Faith No More.
