Sleeping with Sirens nail their colors to the mast on With Ears to See, and Eyes to Hear, their driving debut album. Running just over 30 minutes, the album offers up a compact and tightly written blast of post-hardcore with boundless energy. Standing out here are the vocals of singer Kellin Quinn, whose soaring tenor not only gives the songs a hopeful, uplifting quality, but shows off a vocal talent that could just as easily be making pop records. Star quality aside, With Ears to See, and Eyes to Hear is an incredibly solid debut from a band showing plenty of promise right out of the gate, and it should hopefully make Sleeping with Sirens a staple of any post-hardcore fan's collection.
