"Simply, one of the best indie power pop albums of the freshly minted new year! Broadcast One perfectly captures the bands jangly guitar-driven sound and reminds us not only of the Odds, but other such faves as Not Lame's own True Love, Ike(The Caufields), The Andersons and, most thankfully, lots of Sloan. It's a scorcher of a power pop album! There's layers of sweet, brash and crunchy guitars and heavy smatterings of hot, arousing hooks. One helluva strong debut. Extremely Highly Recommended!" - Not Lame Recordings

"Fat and thick, the guitar is upfront as The Capitals make a joyful noise. They offer good songs and a beguiling demeanour with subtle Beatles references, and a zeal for experimentation. B+" - Tom Harrison, The Province

"The Capitals employ huge riff-o-rama, sweet, sugary vocals, and sinewy bass lines that wind themselves around some propulsive (and to the point) drumming. Shit! Isn't that power pop nirvana?" - Doug Smith, The Nerve Magazine

"The pop hook is there, to be sure, but there is a contemporary edge to the jangly melodies and slippery riffs. Whether it is the mid-tempo rocker "Fine" or the Seattle-tinged British invasion grind of "Circle Game," The Capitals are clearly knowledgeable students in the school of rock." - Jason Lewis, FFWD Weekly

"If (their) live show is half as tight as this debut, expect to see more of it. Songwriter Patrick Jacobson shows real promise." - Stuart Derdeyn, The Province

"With its catchy hooks and sunny background vocals, the band shows that it has a solid foundation in the lighter side of rock." - Gregory Adams, The Georgia Straight

"The Capitals are looking for prime airtime with guitar-driven Broadcast One" - Phil Duperron, Edmonton Vue Weekly

"Check out the unsung pop brilliance of this new Vancouver band." - Quick Picks, FFWD Weekly

"I think it is f**king great..." - Jonathan Simkin, 604 Records
