This is the third album from the pilots. And from what I can recall from over the last one and a half years, this is the largest production we have done so far.
The musicians have been fantastic (as usual) and there have been many moments when I thought: this can’t get any better.
While this album is not only a progressive piece, but also consists of some popular influences, I personally feel it is great that this release is in the same year when we celebrate the 50th anniversary of “Tarkus” which I consider to be the absolute masterpiece in progressive rock (look out for an Easter egg in one of the tracks).
A big thanks goes to my friends and mates Todd Sucherman,
Marco Minnemann, Pete Trewavas, Lars Slowak, John Mitchell,
Finally George, Steven Rothery, Jake Livgren, Bill Evans,
Ricky Garcia and Eric Gillette.
Additional thanks to Konstanze, Clemens Väth, Micho for finalising the artwork, Mr. T & Dr.Igelmann.
An acknowledgment goes also to the buyers of this CD, helping to cover the costs.
Without you, a production like this wouldn’t be possible.
