“Out of the Vein” is one of the best and most underrated Third Eye Blind albums. I’ll admit, I only really dug deep into this album a few years ago and man was I missing out.
There’s an hour of music here stretched across fourteen tracks and pretty much every single track is a winner. The record has a great pace to it. From the first two tracks, “Faster” and “Blinded”, the album is off to an incredible start. Brad’s drums are punchy and bright, the guitars are crunchy and really effects driven. And Stephen pulls out some of his catchiest vocal melodies and best lyrics, in my opinion.
The production on this record overall is fantastic. The band wrote one of the best songs I’ve ever heard from them, “Wake for Young Souls”. It has a great flow, it’s engaging and beautifully written. It’s my favorite song on the record, no doubt.
They restocked this album on their website recently and that’s where I got it. Apparently it sold out in less than twenty four hours. So happy I finally got a pressing of one of my favorite albums, by one of my favorite bands.
