Third Eye Blind: Blue (Elektra)

Bud Scoppa,, 1999

IN THE APTLY-TITLED ‘Camouflage’, which makes up a chunk of the meaty second half of Third Eye Blind's second album, guitarist Kevin Cadogan fires off a torrent of 16th notes as if he's the new sheriff of Joshua Tree. Simultaneously, the wily tenor of Stephan Jenkins appears/ appears/ appears, enlivened by extreme delay a la the New Radicals' po-mo anthem 'You Get What You Give'.

Total word count of piece: 492
