4.0 out of 5 stars Train has changed April 17, 2012
Format:Audio CD
There's no denying that Train has changed. Starting with "My Private Nation" the band has progressed from a simple college band to a more mainstream rock group, "Save Me San Francisco" was their reintroduction back to the masses. A great return and it shows they learned a few things on the way. "California 37" is in many ways a continuation. Familiar sounding tracks but taking it a few steps further. Much how drops was a continuation of Train. The opener 'Maybe this'll be my year' will remind many of billy Joel's 'we didn't start the fire', some would call it a sad rip off but i digress. It is a good solid opener. Then we have 'bruises' a duet with the ashley monroe. Would probably hit big in the country charts with enough pop flavor to do decent on the POP charts. Very charming tune. Next is '50 ways to say goodbye' a flamenco infused quirky but fun driving rock tune. I find myself leaving this on repeat because It's so infectious, and rather funny. The title track is rather odd, a soft rap tune that for all purposes is a bit of an ego booster, and at the same time a small 'thank you' to their fans, and a promise they won't ever off course again. Mermaid smells of Enrique iglesias. Same Spanish style, quirky yet fun high energy song with a small ode to johnny depps famous pirate character. Makes me think the last pirates movie inspired this song. For those that get the itunes deluxe edition you get the song off the Taylor lautner movie Abduction, called 'to be loved' a typically rock movie single. Nice addition as that single can't be bought without buying the soundtrack.

This is a no-pretense album, designed to do one thing and one thing only--give you a good time. The doing of this takes some rather interesting turns. The album opens with a "We Didn't Start the Fire"-like-timeline of recent events, ending in a touching recounting of a first kiss, and a rousing chorus. You've probably heard "Drive By" by now, but if you haven't, it is an uptempo emotional tune couched in a singalong chorus--"I swear for you/I'll be there for you/this is not a drive by". 50 ways to say goodbye opens with a flamenco like figure including a trumpet line, and provides a nice showcase for some over the top singing, before it segues into a country flavored rocker, and it says a lot that these two sections are made to meld together with believability. The best part of the song is the emotional bridge, which has a passionate and soulful "I want to live a thousand lives with you/I want to be the one you're dying to love/ but you don't want to" over a catchy beat. There are gentle moments here as well: "We Were Made for This" is a tribute to the surprise and pleasures of true love sung over a chiming guitar, slowly building to a climax. In all, this is a worthy successor to "Save Me, San Francisco", drenched in guitar and California sunshine, leavened with heartbreak and love. It's just plain-ole good summer music, perfect for your trip down the PCH.

5.0 out of 5 stars One Of The Best! April 23, 2012
By Lyddi
Format:MP3 Music
This is seriously one of trains best albums! Its catchy lyrics and foot tapping beats will have you up singing and dancing in no time! Once you listen to this cd you just feel like your on a sandy beach in california with the sun beating down on you especially with tracks like "Mermaid" , "Sing Together" And of coarse "California 37". But since this train you can also excpet heart felt lyrcis in tracks like "When The Fog Rolls In","We Were Made For This" And "Feels Good At First". If you loved Save Me San Francisco you will LOVE this album! It will have you laughing and crying! Trust me your not wasting your money at all buying this album it will have you at the first song! The only downside you'll find is the same downside i found.......Its so short! I enjoy it so much the time just seems to fly by when listening to it! Bottom line if you love train you need to get this album!

5.0 out of 5 stars What a kick! April 27, 2012
By Ann
Format:Audio CD
Following Train since the beginning their sound has changed through the years. Their last few CD's started adding a few songs with lyrics that were fun, kinda funky and eclectic. California 37 takes fun, funky and eclectic to a whole new level. There's whistling, bag pipes, ukulele, Latin sounding brass and a country tune mixed with some rock n roll and a few more serious songs among this eclectic mix. The songs with grin value are This'll Be My Year (a similar style to We Didn't Start the Fire but about life along the way for lead singer, Pat Monahan), 50 Ways to Say Goodbye, You Can Finally Meet My Mom, Drive By and Mermaid. Drive By is a catchy tune and will no doubt do well on the Pop charts while Bruises (w/Ashley Monroe) would probably go just as far with country fans. California 37 is about Train and a thanks to fans. Sing Together, We Were Made For This and When the Fog Rolls In rounds out a CD very nicely done.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the album I was waiting for May 25, 2012
By Shelby
Format:Audio CD
I've loved Train since "Meet Virginia." I've always loved their tunes, their silly lyrics, and overall style. I'm the one standing at the Fillmore 6 hours before the show starts so I can be in the front row. I've caught guitar pics, thousands of up-close shots, a photo of Pat with me and my friends, been personally crooned to with his arm around me, met Pat in person. I love Train. I am Train's number one fan. I go weeks without listening to anyone else, and they're the only band I can listen to while studying.

I love Train and I **do not** love this album. I'm not even sure I like this album.

Prior to "California 37," iTunes informs me that I've only given two of their songs a rating of fewer than 4 stars. ("Idaho" and "Heavy," for those wondering.) "California 37" has 5 songs that rate under 4 stars for me. There are only 11 songs on the disc. I've gone back and changed ratings a few times as I hear things differently, so this was not a 'first impression' rating.

Sure, Train has changed. I went with Pat's solo stuff, actually I really liked it. I went with "Save Me San Francisco," even though not all of the album is my favorite, I still really like it overall. This? What is this? I sat through a law school exam on April 17, barely able to contain myself, anxious to finish so that I could buy the album, and this is what I get?

This'll Be My Year: too name-droppy. I really like the song overall, but it's too name-droppy. You've got a captive audience. Who are you trying to impress?

Drive By: the single. When this came out, I said "if this were by anyone but Train, I would hate it." I stand by that. However, it is an excellent running song.

Feels Good At First: the closest to 'real' Train on this album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty solid music!
This was my first ever Train album, and I gotta say, it's pretty great. I'm more of a rock-'n-roll fan, but when I first listened to country-ish Bruises, I was instantly hooked. Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars Vinyl sound is too boomy.
If your going to make vinyl, it needs EQ adjustments compared to CD.. One of the worst I've heard. Requires you to make adjustments to your system to enjoy..
