Album Reviews

In the late Nineties, Third Eye Blind worked up a shiny version of college rock that was verbose, deep-feeling and catchy enough to keep most haters at bay. On their first album in six years, Stephan Jenkins is still prone to heavy-handed lyrics and a certain type of alt-guy cheese, getting whiny and wordy on songs like "Why Can't You Be." But he still has a way with uplifting pop-rock choruses like the one on "Can You Take Me," the album's hard-charging opener. Dotted with spry little riffs and Jenkins' pseudo raps, Ursa Major is a slick but heartfelt disc that packs pleasure even if you're not Nineties-nostalgic.
