About this album

Third Eye Blind is the eponymous debut for the American alternative rock band Third Eye Blind, originally released on April 8, 1997. It spawned several singles, including top 10 charting “Semi-Charmed Life”, “Jumper”, and “How’s It Going to Be”.

While Third Eye Blind only peaked at #25 on the Billboard 200, it spent 104 weeks on the chart. Three singles from the album charted in the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100: “Semi-Charmed Life”, “Jumper”, and “How’s It Going to Be”. It is the group’s best selling album, having been certified 6x Platinum by the RIAA.

The layout of the back artwork was inspired by that of The Beatles’ album Revolver. There are variations of the cover art. The first US issue of Third Eye Blind, approximately 500,000 copies, featured a gold-tinted cover photograph with a dark red band logo. The photo was then changed to red with a yellow logo at the band’s request. UK and other Continental European nations continued offering the gold edition, and Japan had a cyan, negative photo cover.

    The nostalgia element with this is interesting too... I mean I wasn't there with it at the time but I remember being 17 and blasting Losing a Whole Year after my first real break up way more than was healthy. I just relate to this thing, the songs are so tight and the performances are way more impressive than most people would think when they hear "Third Eye Blind". The lyrics on Narcolepsy are awesome as well. Just fantastic.

    Found this album at a thrift store this week. I'm loving it so far! Might eventually become one of my favorites, and I have a feeling it will!

    Was the first album I ever owned. My Dad and I still agree this is one of the best albums ever.

    "Semi-Charmed Life is a song that everyone sings likes it’s a summer anthem for the beach when it’s actually a song about a sex and crystal meth addict" ... I agree but it's definitely not the first popular song about drugs. Hardly groundbreaking in that regard. Awesome song & great album though.

    favorite album of all time. beautiful from start to finish. i wish they would have continued releasing music like this. but when you think about it you can't really make something like this twice, it just wouldn't be right.

    Easily one of the best records to come out of the 90's. Incredible production, superb engineering, killer songs....just awesome.

    Semi-Charmed Life is a song that everyone sings likes it’s a summer anthem for the beach when it’s actually a song about a sex and crystal meth addict. Boom. Roasted. Read the rest of the article, "Five Subtly Disturbing Songs" here:

    I always liked the radio songs....but this is my first time listening to the whole CD and I can't believe I didn't buy this album when it came out. Every song is pretty great....I had never heard the 2nd half of the disc before. Man, I missed out....but glad I finally got it. Awesome.
