Captiva [edit]
by Falling Up | Genre: Pop/Rock | Release Date: October 02, 2007
 

In 2007, Falling Up returned with their third and most ambitious studio record to date, Captiva. Produced by Aaron Sprinkle (Hawk Nelson, Anberlin, The Almost), Captiva picks up where the band's sophomore smash, Dawn Escapes, left off, only taking their patented, finely-crafted rock hits and beautiful dreamlike ballads to the next level.

CAPTIVA | Posted September 28, 2007
THIS ALBUM IS GREAT. THIS IS MY FIRST TIME LISTENING TO FALLING UP AND I REALLY LIKE THEM. IT IS A GOOD CD TO CHILL OUT TO AND HANG OUT WITH GOD WITH. I WILL BE LOOKING FOR MORE OF FALLING DOWNS MUSIC.

Progressive but still no crashings. | Posted September 28, 2007
Falling up is and has been my favourite band for a while. I was first mesmerized by the crunchy yet ambient nu-metal of "crashings" and was instantly hooked onto the band. Then came "Dawn Escapes" a more ambient album that lacked originality aside from the lovely piano ballads.

With this third release I was eager to see where falling up would go with their sound. Dawn Escapes was a good album but it was not as original and textured as Crashings. This new album falls in between the two. It's not as good as crashings but shows improvement over dawn escapes.

What seems to be the case here is that the band has decided to take the best elements of the first two albums and combine them together. There are some good crunchy guitar riffs ("Hotel Aquarium" and "Murexa) and some catchy electronica elements ("A guide to marine life" and "good morning planeterium"). It is worth mentioning though that while the above mentioned songs are good they lack the punch of songs like "Bittersweet" and "broken heart" of the first album. Add to that the not so interesting tracks such as "maps" and "helicopters" and you have an album that doesn't really top crashings.

What it does do however is show progression over "dawn escapes". All of the songs on that album had songs that mostly sounded the same and were only set apart by their piano melodies. Captiva corrects that with tracks that stand out and dont sound similar. You can find everything from ambient, to heavy, to poppish on this album and thats good.

Over all it is a great album and shows progression over dawn escapes as falling up move in a new direction but you will not be able to shake the feeling that this album is not as good as crashings.

From a Falling Up Fan . . . | Posted September 26, 2007
"Captiva" is different -- that's for sure -- but in the best was possible. Every song brings something new. The melodies are beautiful, catchy, and original; the lyrics are mind-boggling and still completely Falling Up-esque. The first couple of tracks, such as "Goodnight Gravity" and "Hotel Aquarium," are especially unique. Those who prefer the style of their first album will probably like "Murexa" and "Drago Or The Dragons" the best. True Falling Up fans, such as myself, will adore every track just the same. ;)
