Third Eye Blind (1997)
Updated: Aug 27
How many hits can you have and still be misremembered as a one-hit wonder?
In the latest episode of Columbia House Party hosts Jake Goldsbie and Blake
Murphy try to find out by diving into Third Eye Blind's self-titled album. The
successful debut produced five singles over the course of two years,
landing them on era-defining compilation albums and every late-90s and
early-00s coming-of-age soundtrack. Semi-Charmed Life may be the tune
people remember them for the most - and it's a great snapshot of what
remains a pretty definitive sound - but this album is deeper than you
remember. Find out more about the non-singles that had an influence outside
the genre, the alleged difficulties of working with Stephan Jenkins, and a
tough ride on the MuchMusic Countdown in this week’s podcast.
