To the pleasant surprise of their fans, Sunny Day Real Estate reunited in 1997. This reunion culminated in the 1998 release of How It Feels to be Something On, the group's first album in three years.

The groups shows definite growth on the album... both lyrically and musically. The opening track, "Pillars", sets the stage for the rest of the album. Although it has more quiet moments than their 1994 debut Diary, it's brilliant in it's own way. Where Diary had heavy grunge influences, How It Feels to be Something On features a much more indie-influenced sound. It may be more quiet, but in no way does that equate to it being tame. The rage and passion of Enigk's vocals are in full force, as is the amazing music.

I remember the first time I heard this album in 1998. It gave me the chills then, and it still does to this day.
