THE STORY OF TRAIN

TRAIN is I, Pat Monahan (vocals), Jimmy Stafford (guitar) and Scott Underwood (drums). There are a bunch of others, past and present that have helped us do what we do on and off the road, but the three of us have been here since the start in 1994. Wow! 1994? Really?

We started playing as Train in San Francisco at a place called Mad Dog In The Fog. How I remember ... Read more in Amazon's Train Store

Product Description

Save Me, San Francisco, from Grammy Award-winning band Train, contains the new summer anthem, “Hey, Soul Sister” and is the multi-platinum-selling band’s fifth studio album hearkening back to the band’s early days in the mid-‘90s, when they first formed in the city by the bay.
This album marks the restoration of Train’s original line-up, including vocalist Pat Monahan, guitarist Jimmy Stafford and drummer Scott Underwood, since 2003’s platinum offering, My Private Nation. Train recorded Save Me, San Francisco in London’s Kensaltown Studios, with producer Martin Terefe (Jason Mraz, KT Tunstall, James Morrison) at the helm, helping the band tap into their organic, distinguished sound. The album’s lead track, “Hey, Soul Sister”, is charismatic, fresh, and laden with hooks that stick in your head all day, perfect to celebrate the dog days of the summer season.
The song also marks a new direction from Train’s classic style found in prior hits such as “Drops of Jupiter (Tell Me)”, “Calling All Angels” and “Meet Virginia”.

Having been a fan of Train since Drops of Jupiter the latest album Save me, San Francisco is another stunning collection of songs.
Whilst now down to a 3 piece band they have not lost any of the power and in Pat Monaghan have one of the best vocals around.
All 11 tracks are good with diversity from ballads to moody rock ,but in Hey Soul Sister track 2 I believe they have made one of the stand out songs from 2009.
I hope they tour the UK at sometime in the future.

I wouldnt say I have been a huge Train fan... previous to this I only had 'Drops of Jupiter' - which I love but apparently not enough to be inspired to make further purchases. Anyway a friend suggested going to see them when they tour here live later this year so I thought it may be a good idea to update my knowledge of the bands work and how glad I am I did!

This is a brilliant album with something for every mood. From the fun, up beat 'Save me San Francisco' to reflective 'This Aint Goodbye' and the wonderfully wistful 'Marry me' the album journeys through an emotional spectrum.

This is a rollicking good listen for lovers
of four-square, high-end, melodic rock.

'Save Me, San Francisco' is Train's fifth
album and I find myself surprised that they
have not had as big an impact on these shores
as they undoubtably deserve.

Patrick Monahan has a fine voice and knows how
to work his way into a good tune.
There are eleven songs in this collection and
not a bad one among them.

This is music without attitude. The band clearly enjoying
themselves; no point to make and nothing to prove.

Title and opening track 'Save Me, San Francisco'
with its hootenanny riff , barroom piano and
infectious, sing-along chorus is a strong kick-off.

'Hey, Soul Sister' is a delightful folksy number.
Mr Monahan's clear-as-a-bell high tenor rolls along
happily atop a loose-limbed rhythm section and
well-judged organ accompaniment.

'This Ain't Goodbye' is a cracking piano-led ballad
with a simple but highly effective string arrangement.
That voice, however, is again the undoubted star of the show.

'You Already Know' is another strong composition, the
string section again enriching the atmosphere before
the powerful main body of the song bursts in. Classy stuff.

Final track 'Marry Me' delivers a simple, emotional and
beautifully executed ending to a very fine album.

Give it a go. All aboard I'm thinking!

Highly Recommended.

After hearing 'Hey Soul Sister' on the Radio, I immediately loooked for the rest of the album. I've heard absolutely nothing from them since the single 'Drops of Jupiter', which is no confusing me given how utterly fantastic this CD is. How have they escaped recognition in the UK?! Maybe the airplay 'Hey Soul Sister' is getting on Radio 2 will help rectify this.

All the songs have extremely addictive beats and lyrics, which work their way into your conscioiusness from the first listen. As stand-alone tracks, they are great songs, and when compiled into the ablum it creates a very high quality CD which deserves lots of stereo-time. The title track 'Save Me, San Francisco' is very upbeat and catchy, and 'Hey Soul Sister' will be an unforgetable summer song if the weather gets good enough to drive with the windows down. I can't help singing along! There are no weak or disappointing songs on the entire album, just great song after great song. Train never miss a beat, and this resulting album should hopefully get them more well deserved recognition.

Right, I'm off to listen to Train's back-catalogue; I feel like I've been missing out on something...

So the reviewer that gives the album one star bases this on one song? Why bother leaving a review for an album you haven't heard purely because you don't like one song? Sure, this album is not going to re-write musical history but it does contain the most consistent songs Train have produced for several years. Pat Monahan's vocals are wondeful on this album and there is some fabulously catchy music on the album. Agreed, it's certainly not Wilco- but thank God for that!

The most inspiring music I've heard in a long time. Not only did I smile from beginning to end , but it made me want to put my jeans on , which I have'nt worn in a long time. And find a festival to go to. I could'nt do that, so I just sat in my car with the volume up, and I was there like magic. Since hearing it, my sisters have both bought it. And my teenage kids are always borrowing it. Fantastic, feel good, summer music.

I've been a Train fan since the release of their first album and have loved every album release since [ including Pat's solo project]. I've been fortunate enough to see them live in concert and once again they are a truly amazing and talented group of individuals.

Yet again with 'SMSF' they have produced a truly amazingly rich,varied and throroughly enjoyable album in my opinion [that I listen to over and over]

As the previous reviewer so eloquently suggests, there isn't a bad or poor track on the album...

so if you haven't had the pleasure of listening to Train before, then do yourself a favour, take the plunge...you won't regret it
