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.

5.0 out of 5 stars lovely, scuzzy music March 13 2001
By David Barker - Published on Amazon.com

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!!!
5.0 out of 5 stars From RollingStone.com Dec 20 2000

The heavy-hearted Portland, Oreg., outfit the Places close their debut with a cover of Syd Barrett's "Late Night." It's a fitting touch because the album straddles the fence between the organic and the atmospheric nearly as well as the ex-Pink Floyd madcap himself did in his younger years. Lead singer/songwriter Amy Annelle's airy voice floats above these hazy songs, but she gets her hands dirty too, stripping her heart bare on tracks like the sad, soft opener "Own Your Own Home" and the lonesome, acoustic "Will Try." Dark, bluesy shuffles like "Mission Impossible" and "Ships At Sea" feel a little like Cat Power and elsewhere comparisons to their hometown forerunners the Spinanes have solid footing. The kitschy between-song narration is an effective way of proving these dour indie-rockers don't take themselves too seriously but it distracts from the record's black mood -- a bit of a shame since it's so easy to get wrapped up in it.
