Third Eye Blind Hit Career Best with #3 Debut on Billboard Top 200 Album
Chart

'Ursa Major' Takes #1 on Billboard Digital and Independent Charts

³3 out of 4 stars. Third Eye Blind's music has over the intervening years
become an unexpected touchstoneŠPerhaps it's that after-the-fact renown
that's kept frontman Stephan Jenkins in fighting formŠexpect its charms to
echo for a while.² ­ Mikael Wood, LA Times

During Third Eye Blind¹s six-year hiatus the band has been reinvented by a
youth culture through the internet and word of mouth alone. ³We debuted at
#3. And on our own imprint! I can not tell you how good that feels,² says
frontman Stephan Jenkins, marking Third Eye Blind¹s career-high position on
the Top 200 Album chart. ³We are making this up as we go along, but it¹s
all about keeping true to a sound ­ and then amplifying it and not diluting
it.²

Ursa Major has sold 49,215 and also earned the #1 position on the Billboard
Digital and Independent Charts.²

The Associated Press hails the album as "a musical gem" and ³a fine line
between aggression and a deft pop sensibilityŠJenkins' lyrics juxtapose
poetry with profanity, anger with longing and big world issues with the
personalŠThird Eye Blind hasn't forgotten how to lay down a strong record.²

³Don¹t Believe A Word²
