In 2011, you’re either really in or you’re really out with Third Eye Blind—and if you’re in, chances are good that you’re still holding on tightly to your memories of the band’s late-’90s heyday. 13 years after the entire country was doot-doot-dooting to “Semi-Charmed Life,” Stephan Jenkins and the band have been staying busy on the road despite internal turmoil that ended in guitarist Tony Fredianelli quitting and suing Jenkins for $8 million over songwriting credits earlier this year—an odd parallel of when original Third Eye Blind guitarist Kevin Cadogan left the band in 2002 and also sued over songwriting credit. Still, the band sounds about the same—2009’s Ursa Major is only the band’s fourth full-length, its first new release since 2003’s Out Of The Vein, and it mines the same catchy alt-rock territory as the band’s been doing for over a decade.
