My adoration for Third Eye Blind's self-titled debut is no secret. I frequently dub the record my favorite of all-time, I threw a 100% retro review at it last year, and I spent half a month's rent to grab the original vinyl pressing. Simply put, no pop/rock record has ever proven as innovative musically while maintaining massive accessibility. The band recently released the second pressing of self-titled, along with the rest of their discography - in honor of the occasion, we're giving away something special: a vinyl test press of self-titled. To win, follow AbsolutePunk & Third Eye Blind on Twitter, then retweet this. Good luck!
