THIRD CLASS' STUDIO RELEASES SPAN A WIDE VARIETY OF SOUNDS. AT ONE MOMENT, ROCK MUSIC IS FULL STEAM AHEAD; AT THE NEXT, A HOKEY BALLAD ENSUES, OR AN ATTEMPT AT SOMETHING TRIPPY AND DEEP. ALL IN ALL, THE BAND PRIDES ITSELF ON POP MUSIC WHICH IS VERSATILE, INNOCENT, AND POETIC. RECORD COMPANIES, GIMMICKS, AND PANDERING ARE SPARSE, BUT CUTE MOMENTS AND LOVE FOR THE FANS ARE ALWAYS AROUND THE CORNER. MANY OF THIRD CLASS' SONGS FOCUS ON CHILDHOOD AND DEATH. A HEAVY THEME OF LOST FAMILY MEMBERS AND NOSTALGIA ROLLS THROUGH EVERY RELEASE, WITH NO END IN SIGHT. LEE, JACK, AND PEPE OFTEN FIND PERFECTION IN IMPERFECTION, LIGHT IN DARKNESS, AND HAPPINESS IN SADNESS. AN UPBEAT TUNE MIGHT CARRY SOME BROODING; A SOMBER BALLAD MIGHT DECLARE JOY. THESE WORKS STAND AS A TESTAMENT TO IDIOSYNCRACY, LOVE, AND ABSTRACT MEMORIES, SOME STILL TO COME.
