"Portland's Places are clearly going where their moniker implies. The Autopilot Knows You Best is a gorgeous debut from a band whose tranquil arrangements are as lush and misty as the Northwest locale from which they originate. Singer/guitarist Amy Annelle is truly adept in her ability to construct placid, yet haunting soundscapes that effectively envelop her delicate and introspective wordplay. On "Lazy Days & Castaways," sweetly melancholic viola and black-and-blue-hued accordion suspend Ryan Stowe (ex-Slower Than) and Annelle's gentle strumming as the latter serenely reveals, "Close my eyes and see you feeling blue/ Please don't leave me perfect you." But it's Annelle's fragile vocal delivery that is the Places' most precious resource. Her near-whispers on the beautiful, country-tinged "Will Try" are as stirring as the flinch-inducing silence between a lightning flash and a clap of thunder. Additional contributions from local Portland musicians help to further fertilize The Autopilot's picturesque melodic landscape. - Bill Konig: CMJ New Music Report Issue: 691 - Nov 13, 2000 He said it better than I could. It's a CD you must own."
Lovely, scuzzy music

"I love this record. It's gentle but not narcoleptically so. The songs have just the right amount of energy and the guitars, while quiet, have a dirty feel that you rarely hear on music as mellow as this. Track 9, Ode to the Exhausted, is simply wonderful and will not leave my brain. Cool!!!"
