5.0 out of 5 stars "Welcome to the big time." November 15, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
That's one of the awards Train is up for at the VH1 Music Awards in December; and I completely agree. I saw Train nearly 3 years ago in a tiny little hole-in-the-wall bar in Columbus, OH...and that was only because a friend MADE me go. There were maybe 10 people there. Yet from that moment on, I was hooked. Their stage energy, ability to "draw the crowd in," and genuine musical talent captivated me. As a music major myself, I'm really picky about who I listen to. They passed the test with flying colors. Pat has one of those voices that will be remembered for generations.
The past few reviews have discussed the "switch-over" to pop that this album had. But what is pop nowadays? Would you consider Britney Spears, Train, and Weezer all in the same category just because their music is sold under the "pop-rock" section? Music, to me, doesn't really fall under a category. This CD is TRAIN...they went into the studio, recorded until their voices left them and until their fingers were bleeding. They put their heart and soul into this album, and the finished product is absolutely amazing. Each song is different, yet they all tie together like a fascinating novel with interlocking chapters. You have to listen to all of them to get the true meaning of the ending.

4.0 out of 5 stars Music for Grown Ups June 28, 2002
Format:Audio CD
So when I cracked open the crystal case on this CD and looked, for the first time mind you, at a picture of the band I should have realized the significance of one of their T-shirts. One of the guys is actually wearing a concert T-shirt for Asia! Now, they don't sound like Asia, but I think the shirt says something about the band. It says, "if you own and still listen to music produced in the 80's, there's a good chance you will like this."
And I do.
You've all heard "Drops of Jupiter." It's played every thirty minutes or so on every radio in the U.S. It is a good example of the other tracks, but no cookie cutter was used in writing these tunes. Each song is ripe with rich harmonies, brilliant melodies and chord progressions, but also brings it's own unique richness for very pleasurable listen, time after time.
I wouldn't call it rock. We're not talking ballads here, but the tempo never picks up very quick either. Just as well, us 80's types are getting older after all aren't we? Several of the tracks have the tendancy to lean towards an almost country feel. Not really close enough to be considered a cross-over band, but just an occasional guitar twang or old west harmonica thrown in for interesting effect.
I am glad that there are bands out there generating good stuff for the maturing generation Xers. This album will never be considered a classic, but it keeps this old geezer humming, and his feet tapping.
Time for my nap.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does not disappoint! April 5, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I was lucky enough to catch Train live in Atlanta before the radio snapped up "Meet Virgina" as a heavy rotation single. That day cemented this band into my ears and musical heart. And this album reinforces my initial feeling of wonderment. Every track is worth mentioning...She's on Fire can be listened to over and over without feeling redundent and once you have Drops of Jupiter in your head you will sing it all day long..GLADLY! In my opinion, there is not much danger of anyone cashing in on Columbia Records satisfaction guarantee. If anything, I thought this album was better than the first! They have obviously grown and become more at ease with their talent. I recommend this disk to anyone looking for true musical enlightenment!

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice work; thank you train. June 9, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I heard the single, Drops of Jupiter, on the radio last week; thought for a moment that it was the Black Crows. But Train turns out to considerably different, not as hard . . . maybe better. Great vocals, thoughtful lyrics, and catchy melodies. There's a southern quality about Train; a southern tinge here and there and a feel-good ambiance that belies the fact that they hail from California's Bay Area. Their lyrics are deep and personal. Here's an example: the lead singer, Pat Monahan, actually has a significant scar across his chin. In the title track, he sings, "Tell me, did you fall for a shooting star, One without a permanent scar, And did you miss me while you were looking for yourself out there?" The song "Hopeless" is destined to be a hit. "Something More" is equally good, and "Getaway" is one of those songs that grows on you -- actually, the whole album does. After 3 or 4 passes, you'll be humming various melodies in your head and looking forward to hearing it all again.
Train just wants to be "real". If that means they want to produce honest, thoughtful and reflective music, they've accomplished at least that.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quality May 10, 2001
Format:Audio CD
The first thing that comes to my mind when listening to Train's sophomore release is that it is the best Counting Crows album since "August And Everything After." Really, Train has made a better Counting Crows CD than the Crows have on their past couple outings.
This CD really grew on me as I listened to it over and over again through the course of the past couple weeks. This album is more than the ready-made, Dawson's Creek-themed, title track "Drops Of Jupiter" would lead you to believe. I really dig the transition between kicking things into rock and cooling down into a mellow bluesy/country style.
Train's "Drops Of Jupiter" is the kind of CD that you put on and don't release you haven't skipped a track until the album ends. I suggest you check it out if you're into bands like The Wallflowers, Vertical Horizon, or even Dave Matthews Band.
