For all the things that leap to mind when you think of Third Eye Blind, let's consider them the lesser of two evils—next to Matchbox 20. Which they are. It's true that no matter how much credibility either band attempts to carve out for themselves, they're always going to be nostalgia acts. That's not to say 3EB hasn't written some catchy songs. "Never Let You Go" and the over-over-played "Semi-Charmed Life" are earworms in the best and worst sense of the word. The fact they're still at it says something (though I'm not sure what), but it does beg the question: Who on earth goes to a Third Eye Blind show in 2013? I'm afraid to find out. MARK LORE
