" On Captives debut EP these homegrown boys from Utah successfully meld post-hardcore with alternative rock while even throwing in a little old school Brand New era emo. My Eyes Are Open is what radio stations would be playing if they actually had an ear for music. While listening it’s easy to pick up on their rock roots, but the further into a track you get the more layers start to unfold. A lulling baseline might kickstart a song, but by its end emotionally draining vocals are being shouted, eclipsing your first impression and morphing it into an almost transcendental experience of pain and whirling guitar riffs. This album is a deeply emotional journey that will move the listener. It’ll pick you up one moment, make you want to cry the next, and then leave you with a sense of hope for the future. "
