Third Eye Blind (1997)

Updated: Mar 26, 2020

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.
