Third Eye Blind (1997)

EW's GRADE
B

Details Lead Performance: Third Eye Blind; Genre: Rock

Balancing a cheery ear for harmonies with a finely honed sense of despair, this clamorous pop band displays deft songwriting on its hook-laden debut, Third Eye Blind. The radio friendly ''Semi-Charmed Life'' is a nice taste of Third Eye Blind's formula, as they recount a junkie's affair with crystal meth in the breezy tone most of their peers reserve for tunes about old lovers.
