This is a letdown when compared to their other albums. Everything seemed toned down and none of the songs really stood out to me. The Goodnight Gravity song does sound too much like Relient K. Its too bad. I used to really like this band.

Agreed letdown. Perhaps a better title would have been [I]Non-Captivating.[/I]
Forgive that terrible attempt at a joke....[/COLOR]

I really like this album because it doesn't sound like the first two albums that they had.

While it is good for a band try new things, I really think this album failed. It's like a cross section of Linkin Park, Coldplay, Muse and (new) Relient K - except not as good as those bands' best work.
The first two songs are good, I actually enjoy Goodnight Gravity (Jesse's vocals seem better suited for a pop punk band), and the title track's piano intro reminds of the them to [I]E.T.[/I]
The rest is completely forgettable. If anyone who care to read my review of the album, see the link in my signature.

Glad I gave Captiva time before I actually voted for it. Its funny how much your opinion can change in a couple of years. I still don't think its a great album but it does have its moments. I still hate the Relient K clone song but the majority of the album is creative and original. I am glad they have their own sound instead of sounding like the majority of ccm. My favorite tracks are 1, 2, 8, 10, 11, 12.

yeah, i like Captiva, it was so much more mature than the other two, and Jessy's writing did seem to improve a bit, but songs that i really like (Helicopters, Maps) i forgot all about. i really wish that they would stick with the Goodnight Gravity style, it fits Jessy's voice, the guitars and the drums, but if Fangs is any evidence they prefer something else... but out of the first three releases Captiva is by far the best.

8/10. While it certainly sounds quite a bit different than all their other albums, I think it's pretty good. A majority of the songs have really nice, catchy chorus's. I have to be in the mood for the sound, but overall it's really good.

Pretty good, escpecially the first two songs, but not as good as Dawn Escapes, IMO. There are some pretty weak points on this album, namely Goodnight Gravity, which sounds like it could of been put out by Relient K.

I don't think I'd buy it in that case because I didn't like Dawn Escapes very much.:-/
