All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
When Third Eye Blind released Out of the Vein in 2003, they felt like post-grunge relics that refused to acknowledge their time had passed. Six years later, with Ursa Major in tow, they've surfaced just when late-'90s alt rock nostalgia is beginning to bubble.
