What with Train's third album and brand new opus, 'My Private Nation', just being released, and with an increasing amount of pop-rock acts at it's highest capacity in years, what better to do than go back to where it all started from one of the finest southern-styled rock and rollers.
Both of the last two albums by San Francisco's Train have been enthralling examples of how rock and roll should be in the new millennium. Memorable tracks, including great rockers mixed with some powerful, often string laden ballads, including the unforgettable 'Drops Of Jupiter' from the album of the same name, mixed with a little Southern comfort. Country-esque guitars, combined with a satisfying sense of great pop and Pat Monahan's vocals, perhaps one of the best vocalists in the US right now, make for music that is enjoyable and certainly unforgettable. Unfortunately, it's the same old story with Britain. Our problem is we don't seem to be able to accept good music anymore. A country once the kings of the musical world, ruled by rock and roll, by the likes of the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin and of course The Beatles, is now over-ruled by simple, and I have to say, dismal pop music. It's depressing to say the least.
Now with Train's third album to date being released, they're taking another stab at us, as their beloved America is already smiling upon them. So let's go back a few years...
Many say throughout their second album, 'Drops Of Jupiter' released in 2001, they were at their most consistent, and sounded the best they ever have. Not strictly true. Train have always had this much-desired ability to write fine, memorable music. Take opener, 'Meet Virginia', it's playful, has a superb soaring chorus, and the lyrics are a fine example of 'Boy wants Girl', and it is memorable.

Although Drops of Jupiter is still my favourite Train track, this album contains a number of very close contenders and is clearly the better album. The album has the feel of early Eagles, Lynrd Skynrd, and Allman Brothers. It contains both great ballads and mid to heavy tempo rockers, all of which are complemented with great songwriting. I cannot recommend this album highly enough! (Oh and whatever you do don't miss the two hidden tracks at the end).

With britain having just recently been introduced to this band, not many folk here probably know that Drops of Jupiter was not the first album released by them.
For you people who have indeed listened (and been blown away by) drops of jupiter you should prepare yourself because this self-titled debut album is in my opinion better than the later!
The sound of train can be mainly distinguished from the talents of trumpeteer/saxophonist/vocalist Pat Monahan. His voice on this album really is something to behold!
The guitaring also is of an extremely high standard. There is a much more acoustic feel to this album and there's not one bad song on the album.
The highlight tracks of the album in my opinion are homesick, free, rat and swaying, his voice in homesick and free is particulary immense.
I strongly reccommend this to anyone who has drops of jupiter and those who are thinking of buying it.

Although not as polished as the more recent Drops of Jupiter, Train's debut album is well worth buying for fans, completists, and curious Counting Crows fans - pianist Charlie guests on several of the tracks. Also, any album which rhymes "alligators" with "carbarettas" in the first song is always going to be worth a look.

This, in my opinion, is the best train album out, mildly surprising seeing as it was their first, released in 1998. The album goes from strength to strength and even if your not taken by it immediately it will definately grow on you. Meet Virginia and Homesick are both incredible tracks and the album boasts a slightly rugged feel that is perhaps lost with the other train albums, which most see as generally more polished. I'd give this album six stars if i could, its a truly great buy.

I bought this for my grandson (who is well over 13) and he loves it. I played it first and liked a lot of it, But I was mainly hunting for one track "Homesick" which was the title of a song played at the end of a Wallander episode. It is not quite the same but it is an enchanting number. Rest of the album which I downloaded on to my computer is different, less lyrical and needs a replay by me (at over 70!) I'll get back to you when I've given the whole album a proper listen!

not quite as good as the classic second album, drops of jupiter,but a very good first album,pat monahan has to be one of the best rock pop country vocalists ever! meet virginia showcases the bands witty lyrics and sense of fun. for those only familiar with more recent hits e g drive by hey soul sister the early albums are more rock with a country vibe a la eagles long road out of eden and soul asylum runaway train and misery. the recent albums are more poppy and singles oriented. two distinct phases in the bands history,both brilliant. a must have if you are into train, to see how their sound has developed,

Very good album, couple if weak tracks but overall worth the money. Stand out tracks for me are 'I am', 'free' and 'homesick'
