Reforming a couple of years after their self-titled sophomore record, which was a classic record that may or may not have sounded like it did by accident, Sunny Day Real Estate took a less intense, but still evocative route with their third full-length, How It Feels To Be Something On. The classic, twinkly guitar sound is still there, and there are some extra instruments in the fray this time around. There is a number of classic SDRE songs here ("Pillars", "Every Shining Time You Arrive", the title-track, "The Sharks Own Private F*uck"), but the songs in between them, while good, are nowhere near the level of the aforementioned. The band by this point has dropped most semblances of grunge or post-hardcore that they possessed on their first go around, but were now influenced by indie rock moreso than ever. Though it is a little inconsistent, this is still a very good comeback record for one of the most important emo bands ever to play.
