Having followed Train since "Drops of Jupiter" and also enjoying their recent Hyde Park performance, I was shocked at the lack of bite and originality in this latest album. "Save me San Francisco" was a classic and rates in my Top 10 of the last 20 years! My wife and daughter love " Drive by" and I kept it in my car multiplayer for a week to satisfy them but generally, this album is a great disappointment and more like Lead Vocalist Pat's solo project than a Train Album.
I have always quite liked Train and this album has done nothing to change my mind. In fact this is probably their best album to date, its catchy, upbeat, fun. If you want an album for driving, sitting in the house with background music or out in the garden with friends for a barbie then this album will fit the bill. Couple of songs have had a decent amount radio play but in truth all the songs could have!! Under a fiver too!!
This album should make you want to revisit there previous work!!
