Third Eye Blind is the eponymous debut for the American Alternative rock band Third Eye Blind, originally released on April 8, 1997. It spawned several singles, including Top 10 charting "Semi-Charmed Life", "Jumper", and "How's It Going to Be". The album has been certified 6x Platinum by the RIAA.[1]

Cover art variationsEdit

The first US issue of Third Eye Blind, approximately 500,000 copies, featured a gold-tinted cover photograph with a dark red band logo. The photo was then changed to red with a yellow logo (seen above) at the band's request. UK and other Continental European nations continued offering the gold edition, and Japan had a cyan, negative photo cover.[2]
