No one said that life was fair, but this band had the misfortune of exploding into the charts with their debut release and then suffered the back-slap of expectations that come from immediate success. Their second and third releases received good reviews from the critics, but it seems that only the band's hard-core fans bought them. Expectations were so high for this band by the powers that be (music executives) that they were actually dropped by their label. Absolutely crazy but Jenkins should have no trouble finding a home when he's ready to release something.

I am generally weary of releases that on the surface seem like final attempts to cash in on a band, but this one has most of the songs. Also, the inserts are informative with Jenkins giving the listener a little behind the scenes look at the origin of the songs. Nothing worth spending your money if you have their 3 releases, but a nice touch as these days inserts, esp. collections, don't do much except praise the artist in a one pager by a critic or fan of the band.

The Cd clocks in at 80 minutes so the selection is generous. The songs that you know are out there and some that I did not know or did not catch my attention before were nice surprises ("Tattoo of the Sun" and the intimate "God of Wine") so this pruchase was a no brainer for me.

Irrelevant Sidebar: I actually went to school with Steve J. since middle school, and he was always introducing people to new bands and the better bands of the time. He was serious about his music and is certainly not a creation of some producer. Best of luck and note that this review is based on the release itself. Don't hate him because he dated Charlize Theron! This release earns 4 stars. I;d probably give it 5 if there weere some songs that were accoustic, but that is neither here or there.

I just want to let everyone know that if you don't have blue and out of the vein, then you need to purchase them. 3rd Eye Blind became one of the most under rated bands due to their terrible exposure. This CD has many of the great songs from those CDs, and I guarantee you will enjoy it.

There are exactly three reasons to own this album:

1. Tattoo of the Sun, previously only available with one of their singles. An excellent song that should have been on an album years ago.

2. Slow Motion, with the lyrics, which anyone in the US missed out on. This alone is worth the price. Along with Motorcycle Drive By (also on this album), Slow Motion is Third Eye Blind at their best.

3. My Time in Exile, which is said to be on the DVD release of Out of Vein. Also an excellent track.

Even if you own every other Third Eye Blind album, it's worth it to pick up this one for these songs alone.

Attention!! This is a 'Greatest Hits' collection, so I am writing this for everybody who does NOT already own the entire Third Eye Blind collection. If you're a true blue fan who has stuck with the band thus far, then a) you are a rare breed, and b) you do not need to read this review. As for the rest of you, please read on.

Sometimes, life is not fair, and this is one of those times. Releasing this `greatest hits' collection by Third Eye Blind is a lost proposition before it even begins, and I'll tell you why; the only people who remember Third Eye Blind are the people who bought their first album, and most of those people already have all of the Third Eye Blind music that they care to have. True fans know better, and Third Eye Blind is certainly one of the best post-grunge bands to emerge in the early nineties, but for reasons that I cannot adequately explain, most people simply ceased to pay attention. It's sad, but it's true that the public abandoned this band en masse after their first release. It may be an injustice, but due to public indifference, or wholesale abandonment by the group's label, Third Eye Blind vanished from the charts about as fast as you could say "Hootie and the Blowfish".

I myself must plead guilty to being completely ignorant of the material released after that first album, and I have no good reason for it. That was a great album, and if the record label did their job of promoting subsequent Third Eye Blind records, I'm sure I would have heard something that I liked, and I'd also imagine that I would have posted positive reviews. As it is, too many albums clamor for my limited attention span, so if a band goes AWOL I'm usually not the first to notice.

This band has been one of my favorites since I began to really get into music, in fact they are the sole reason that I got into music in the first place. Catchy rythems with lyrics that seem simple on the surface, but when really listened to unlock tidal waves of meaning and primal emotion. This CD has many of thier singles and a few fan favorites, that when played will let those who havent experienced 3EB to the full immerse themselves.

I do agree with previous reviews that for a hardcore fan it is a bit of a dissapointment, being thier first release in years with no new tracks (the "new" tracks that non-hardcore fans will hear are actually studio compositions of B-sides and available tracks on fan websites). But, it still holds quite a bit of appeal as an album holding the gems of a band that wasnt fully recognized by aimless critics.

As with many truly gifted artists, such as Dream Theater, it's easy to dismiss the talent after only one, breeze through listening. But when you concentrate on the music, every instrument, and every word, it unlocks the songs and emotions behind them that you cant help but to meld with.

As thier first compliation, it is decent, although missing some tracks. The unedited Slow Motion you MUST read the Bands remarks in the cd booklet first if you do not want to be turned off, because it has a specific purpose that may not appeal to all listeners.

Good buy, and on Amazon, great price...Hopefully thier NEW album will be out soon...

Stephan's track by track commentary in the booklet is awesome! It's is all questions and answers from each individual song that fans have been asking for years. (ex: "little red panties" in SCL; 'how stephan hates what he calls 'institutions' in Graduate) The best note about this is... Read More

there are no exclusive tracks other than My Time In Exile, Tattoo Of The Sun and the lyric version of Slow Motion. The tracklisting has been changed and does not include Anything or the Graduate remix
