singalong rock but at the same time serious,
This review is from: Drops Of Jupiter (Audio CD)
Train have produced a mixed genre album here. Yes it is rock, but a mix of two kinds.
In some parts 'Drops of jupiter' gives the listener the singalong-happy feel-good-radio- friendly (anything else..!) rock album, but then with some tracks you get the more serious (still radio-friendly etc) rock lp, which is good because that feeling comes as soon as you begin to feel that it is too poppy!
She's on fire kicks of the album with a bang. A fast moving jiggy tune with a good chorus.
I wish you would strikes the serious note over the poppy opening track and others later on in the album. It really does show the fantastic song-writing skills this band has got.
You've probably heard drops of jupiter but if you haven't it has a feel-good tune to it and will please everyone.
It's about you and Hopeless are two completely different songs in their own right. It's about you is part feel-good part serious rock, the track has everything. Hopeless is a medium moving charming song which will calm you down following the opening 4 track onslaught of great tunes, brilliant lyrics and superb instrumentals.
For those who are thinking of buying this - firstly I'd recommend it.
Train similar to Travis, but with a stronger lead vocal and a more American rock feel to the music. Every track is a pleaser and if you are a fan of alt rock, american trad rock or soft rock then you'll love this stunner.
By the way if you like this one then check out Witness - have an album out called under a sun.
