Led by Stephan Jenkins, 3EB won wide success during a tumultuous group of years when the major-label recording industry was finally losing its grip on an ... Read more in Amazon's Third Eye Blind Store

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Highly anticipated third album. Elektra. 2003.

Perhaps Third Eye Blind should have titled their third album "Same Vein," since the record offers more of what put the San Francisco band on the map--brainy stream-of-conscious lyrics, big choruses, chunky fretwork, and a liberal dose of sexual innuendo. Frontman Stephan Jenkins engages in some artistic bloodletting here, opening a vein and allowing all the anguish he's experienced over the last few years to spill into these songs. Twelve of the 14 compositions find Jenkins recounting his messy breakup with South African actress Charlize Theron. He veers from attempting to lure her back with facile wordplay and exhaustive sexual promises to being haunted by her cover-girl face every time he passes a newsstand. He even conjures her face before he hits the pavement on "My Hit and Run," which chronicles a motorcycle accident. To his credit, Jenkins is much more interesting a songwriter when he's wounded, offering candor that's not evident on TEB's first two discs. --Jaan Uhelszki

5.0 out of 5 stars Always Think We Get More Time... February 8, 2005
By Lerxst
Format:Audio CD
Probably one of the most powerful lyrical phrases I've ever heard. I have had this CD since it's (agonizingly long awaited) release date nearly two years ago, and it's still in my CD-changer and playing right now. For no particular reaaon (as I feel I am "preaching tot he choir" here) I felt compelled to put up a quick review for my fellow music afficionados. On a scale of 1 to 5 this one warrants a solid 24. Of the over 600 record/CD's I've been amassing for some 20 years, "Out of the Vein" has definitely lodged itself solidly in my own personal "Hall of Fame". Third Eye Blind is a tremendous musical powerhouse, one that I can only hope goes on to a decades-spanning career the likes of which exemplified by a few of my other personal favorites: Rush, Yes, U2, and the hopefully not much longer to be dormant Van Halen. At the risk of grandiosity... I see Stephan Jenkins coming into the same circle of songwriting geniuses as Neil Peart and Bruce Hornsby. On a more personal note, I can identify with the emotional suffering of a "messy breakup", and a few years back during the personal devastation of my own divorce, it was 3EB's "Blue" that - for reasons I can't explain - played a BIG part in my ability to move on and begin healing. When I hear lines like "I kept your sweater until the scent was gone / Wrapped up in my hands when the days were long." I can FEEL in a very real and visceral way exactly what Stephan is communicating. [[The only other "sonic therapy" to ever get into me as directly is Bruce Hornsby's live rendition of Jerry Garcia's "Lady With A Fan" found on his "Here Comes The Noisemakers" double CD from 2000 -- check it out]] Maybe it's the fusion of such powerful personal feelings set against a backdrop of energetic, upbeat and (most importantly) refeshingly original musical arrangements that gives 3EB's creations their power, if not a life of their own. Get this CD, Get all three Third Eye Blind releases -- You will be anything but disappointed. --Bob

4.0 out of 5 stars The Return of 3eb May 20, 2003
Format:Audio CD
It's been close to 4 years since the release of Third Eye Blind's sophomore release. 4 years wasn't too much time for 3eb to loose their grip though. Their new record, Out of the Vein, houses all the goodness that made their debut a must. Frontman Stephan Jenkins leads 3eb with a brand new fresh load of songs to put them back on the map. Despite the weak new single "Blinded" Out of the Vein boasts excellent tracks like "Forget Myself" "Crystal Baller" "Wake For Young Souls" "Misfits" and "Good Man." Jenkins keeps up his lyrical guiness up with a poetic renactment of his break-up with actress Charlize Theron which covers just about the whole album despite "Misfits" and "Wake For Young Souls." As always you can pick up on his love for Greek Mythology ("Chemicals wear me down in your summertime bacchanalian"). The only big mistake was to leave out the stunning Slow Motion-ish track "My Time in Exile" only featured on the DVD. Never-the-less Third Eye Blind still prove they can rock on Out of the Vein. 8/10
Highlights: "Wake For Young Souls" "Crystal Baller" "Forget Myself" "Misfits" "Good Man"

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding January 14, 2004
By Andrew
Format:Audio CD
Third Eye Blind, in my opinion, is one of the most innovative rock groups of our time, it seems as though they are always looking to raise the standard musically, not settling for run-of-the-mill music. The album is contagious, to be honest I wasn't real thrilled with the first listen, but after a few spins, I found myself craving more. Other than a few sexual innuendos, lyrically I enjoyed it. I can say with confidence that this was my favorite album of 2003, and even after 50+ listens, the effect is the same. 'Crystal Baller', 'My Hit and Run' and the opening track 'Faster' are some highlights, definitely check it out and let it grow on you...

4.0 out of 5 stars Changing Sounds October 3, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Third Eye has achieved a following and fan base through their ability to connect with the common listener. Relationships, fights, sex, death, and self doubt are just some of the topics they tend to touch on, but lead singer Stephan Jenkins has the ability to make you step into his life.
With the release of their third effort, Out Of Vein, things have not changed. The lyrics are just as dark, the sex is just as raw, and the tones have an uplifting but negative vibe at the same time. For a true Third Eye fan, this is a Third Eye CD. If your someone who is looking for Semi-Charmed Kinda Life, that was 5 years ago, times change, and so does music. All in all, it's the same band, and they continue to evolve their sound.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Surprisingly Good!! May 16, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Okay, I was in 8th grade when Third Eye Blind came on the scene with their self-titled debut. That album kinda blew my mind and if you don't already own it, definitely pick up a copy. It still holds up in my more diverse collection of today as a gem. Unfortunately, 3eb's follow up, "Blue" , didn't quite capture the spirit of the original (while it's grown on me a lot and there are certainly some great songs, it's mainly overproduced and underwhelming). And then it looked like Jenkins and co. would be residing in the "where are they now" bin. Then the band sorta regained their spark and found new footing, and I decided to let the buzz guide my purchase and hence bought "Out of the Vein". And I'm very glad I did. The album flows seemlessly from track to track and lyrically it's definitely the best 3eb album yet. It almost has a Pinkerton-like feel blended with a little more pop sensability. Check out standout tracks "Forget Myself" "Crystal Baller" and "Wake For Young Souls" which are instantly 3eb classics that hold up very well alongside anything from the previous 2 albums (on a side note, the current singe "Blinded (When I See You)" while a very good song, isn't nearly the best this album has to offer). Also interesting are "Misfits" and "Self-Righteous" which are different sounding then the standard 3eb offering without veering too much into mediocrity (like perhaps some of the later half of "Blue"). Of course, I'm really just getting into the album . Yet it's already reestablished Third Eye Blind in my mind as a legitimate rock n' roll band that has tremendous potential. Read more ›
