Great album, well worth 6 year gapAugust 25, 2009
Third Eye Blind's first album was a huge succes, but have since slowly drifted out of mainstream by changing certain fundamentals. This album is quite different from thier last two releases, and takes an entirely new direction, and I must say - I love it. The fusion of 2 sounds -hard hitting classic rock with punchy jazz, coupled with very emotional and sometimes intense lyrics, resounds throughout most tracks. The others take on a life of thier own with soft melodies, but still cut sharply with the lyrics. Hits lightly on a couple of political/social issues, but not overdone like many bands today, who seem to bury thier album in it. Well worth the wait, and hope to see Ursa Minor soon with the same unexpected charm!
I would recommend this to a friend
not the old 3EBJanuary 21, 2010
This halbum has seriouosly dropped off from the initial reason I came to love Third Eye Blind. I'm till trying to get into the ablum and listen to it completely everyday on the drive in to work. The only song that i find easy to lisen to over and over again is "Bonfire" and i read it is the only song on the album that features Arian Salazar (the original bass player), i wonder if that has anything to do with the decline of this ablum. It may be that I need to listn to the ablum 1000 times to begin appreciating the other songs on the ablum and maybe pick 3-4 more that i can stomach listening to over and over again, unfortunately i think 3-4 would be a huge streatch. better luck next ablum....
No, I would not recommend this to a friend
