I'm pretty sure it's Ursa Major. That might explain the lack of comments here. Plus, a 3-song EP is hardly worthy of a review, even if its 3EB.

You kinda threw away any cred the review had by mis-naming the album though, gotta say. Who approved this one?

All I can say is that I apologise. It's my first review (which is no excuse) and I can only place blame on my spell check for not recognising Ursa as a word. I didn't read through the review, but I was, and am, aware that the album is called Ursa Major, being a big 3EB fan myself.
I apologise for the mistake, I now know better.

And that, my friends, is why you never rely on spell check.

No biggie. Kind of a dick comment by me. Ah well, keep trying. Go for a longer album maybe.

Yep; I am now humbled and distrust technology.

It's cool, I'll try for a longer album.

Pretty good review, although I think some of the the lyrics to "Non Dairy Creamer" might have gone over your head at certain points. I lyrics might seem "Off-kilter" at times, but listen to the lyrics, and think about them, they are extremely political, which would explain why a lot of people might not understand them. Good review overall though. Third Eye Blind FTW

I completely agree. In hindsight, I understand the lyrics more now and can definitely read more into them. Thanks for commenting.

I couldn't disagree more about your opinion on "Why Can't You Be". It's hardly the least remarkable.
Having been a long time 3eb supporter, WCYB almost sums up entirely what the band has been about since their first self-titled release: lyrics. Give it a couple more listens, your opinion will change.

Most unremarkable would have to be Non-Dairy Creamer for me. And by unremarkable, I meant embarrassing.

I can't beleive that nobody is a fan of why can't you be. Easily my favorite track off of the ep. I hope it makes it onto Ursa Major.

Why Can't You Be was also my favorite track by far. To me, it seemed the most genuine and heartfelt. Who says the last track of an album has to have sting to it?

The song "Red Star" is easily the most underrated 3eb song to ever be released.
