4.0 out of 5 stars awesome,
Something lacked in this album though, it was still VERY good, but my favorite 3eb album is "Blue", than their first one. This one falls in third. But none the less, its still great.
PICK UP ALL OF THEM! =-D
5.0 out of 5 stars Great come back,
5.0 out of 5 stars great cd,
This review is from: Out of the Vein Ltd ed. (Audio CD)This is a great album, i have always loved third eye blind. This one is just as good as their others. "crystal baller" is a great song, my favorite is "danger." you will no be disappointed if you are a diehard fan. there is a secret song at the end of the cd, what are you waiting, for go buy this cd!
4.0 out of 5 stars Warning, this CD does not play well with others.,
Some of you may not enjoy this album, but none of these people have EVER turned this album up to full volume while driving down the road alone. This album is my stand-alone favorite of the year, and it would be the ONLY CD I listen to all year if I didn't want to save my enjoyment of it for years to come.
Cliff Notes: Warning, this CD does not play well with others, and may drive your friends crazy from its exclusive home in your CD player for 5 months.
As a side-note, I believe that more songs are attributed to the singer's movie-star breakup than is warranted. For instance, some people attribute the opener "Faster" to Charlize, but it sounds more like his relationship with his current girlfriend Vanessa Carlton. "Forget Myself", "Good Man", and "Can't Get Away" are the trio of break-up songs.
5.0 out of 5 stars This is a very solid, underappreciated album,
5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome Back with a bang,
This review is from: Out of the Vein Ltd ed. (Audio CD)If you are a fan of the first two Third Eye Blind albums, then most certainly this album is a must have. It's upbeat yet morose songs hail to the roots of 3eb songs like "Jumper" and "Motorcycle Drive By". However this album has it's own things to offer. This is apparent in the first single, "Blinded", which in my opinion is a fantastic and highly moving song, lamenting about a past relationship and the pain of seeing a lost love. Move on to "Forget Myself", a catchy upbeat song; through the anthems "Danger" and "Crystal Baller", the latter of which demonstrates the classic Third Eye Blind sound which garnered them such popularity. Towards the end are the ballads "Can't Get Away" and "Wake For Young Souls", both lyrically and rythmically emotional and your basic "tear-jerker". The end of the album, I must admit, I did not listen to very much, however some may find that the finale "Good Man" is one of the most intricate songs on the album. This album holds significant emotional importance to me, and it is filled with motivational and spirited tunes. Well worth the purchase price, and highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars amazing,
By A Customer
This review is from: Out of the Vein Ltd ed. (Audio CD)basically i can only say one word about this cd...amazing. Third eye blind was my favorite band because of their first cd. Their blue cd dissappointed me a little bit but with this cd theyve really impressed me.
4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Surprise,
This review is from: Out of the Vein Ltd ed. (Audio CD)Still studiofied, but a great return to 3eb's roots. I love this cd. it is emotional, but in a different way than the other cds. this seems to deal mostly with stephen jenkin's life and youth. a great cd, and the extra-dvd is a awesome bonus.
3.0 out of 5 stars Bought it for "Blinded",
This review is from: Out of the Vein Ltd ed. (Audio CD)I've stopped downloading and started buying; the unfortunate side effect of that is sometimes you'll get a CD that is really only worth the one song you bought it for. Blinded is a great song; which unfortunately outshines the rest of the songs on this CD. Some of the others are pretty good, but the CD as a whole was disapointing. "Blue" is a much better CD as a whole.
This CD just hasn't grown on me like the Stroke 9 CDs and the Coldplay CDs I bought with it. If I had to do it all over again I would still get it because it IS entertaining and 'pretty good'... but it wouldn't be my first choice. Hope that helped.
4.0 out of 5 stars If you liked the non-singles, you will like this album ALOT!,
This review is from: Out of the Vein Ltd ed. (Audio CD)This is really good album, but it doesn't have a song or songs like the other two past albums that were radio friendly. You can basically put this on that fact that Kevin isn't in the band anymore and he basically made the songs catchy. So what you get in this album is a lot of songs that are songs that were just written by the lead singer Stephan. If you liked those on the past albums then you are going to like this album.
As far as just the tempo of the album it follows that past two albums to a T. It starts out fairly fast about mid way you get a mellow song then it picks up again then slows down for the end.On an individual song for song note, there really isn't a song that stands out. This album has to be listen together, it's greater than the sum of it's parts.
