What? Third Eye Blind? Isn’t that a band from the 90′s? Yes, it is. What of it? It’s a band from the 90′s that released one perfect album. And I know Music Monday is usually new music, but you’re going to have to suck it up, because Third Eye Blind (or threeb, as I call them when I’m composing imaginary album reviews for their self titled debut (’97)) was momentarily awesome.
I don’t mean that, to paraphrase Eddie Izzard, in the way we use the word “Awesome” today. Not “awesome” like a mini-corndog, not “awesome” like a Swiffer. I mean,
- Extremely impressive or daunting; inspiring great admiration, apprehension, or fear.
- Extremely good; excellent.
