With their 1997 debut album, Third Eye Blind went from upstart band to chart topping success, garnering a tremendous fan base, scoring five hit singles and surpassing quadruple-platinum status. They return with Blue, their explosive, highly anticipated follow-up, jammed with the same affecting rock songcraft that's established them as a major act on the front line of modern rock.

Muze PNote Third Eye Blind has enough vision to swerve clear of the sophomore jinx. While you won't find a "Semi-Charmed" on BLUE, there is enough thoughtful, well-crafted pop to keep the band in the grace of its fans. The album opens with the short, blistering "Anything," a track that cuts out just as the song's hook pulls you in. The radio-friendly "Never Let You Go" bears an unshakable chorus. "Deep Inside of You" shows 3EB to be developing further as accomplished power balladeers. A poetic stream of consciousness takes shape in "An Ode to Maybe." "The Red Summer Sun," which begins as an atmospheric and mid-tempo piece, goes off on a strange tangent that finds vocalist Stephan Jenkins doing his best Axl Rose impression, and then returns to a trippy outro that reprises as a hidden track at the end of "Darwin."
Muze PNote BLUE is a largely introspective affair, especially in tracks like "Darkness," where Jenkins sings, "And the world darkens around me / strange friends surround me." That perspective is the key that makes Third Eye Blind's songs hit home emotionally. The diversity and risks the band takes on BLUE will surely help the group avoid any one-hit-wonder labelings.

Engineer: David Gleeson; Mike Cresswell

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone (1/20/00, pp.56-7)
- 3 stars out of 5 - "...finely worked-out chunks of serious gun-metal rockcraft that depend on the band's restless, edgy electric guitars....It's the sound of Stephan Jenkins thinking, stylishly and hard."

Spin (2/00, pp.110-12)
- 6 out of 10 - "...Front cad Stephan Jenkins has no competition when it comes to equivocation....A band is only as good as its worst influences, and these guys virtually celebrate them....they are great communicators..."

Entertainment Weekly (11/26/99, p.94)
- "...moves a bit further toward establishing their own identity....imbues the unforced energy and crafty musicality that make pop music sound good..." - Rating: B
