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

Editorial Reviews

International pressing includes one bonus track; 'Drops Of Jupiter' (Live). 2009 release from the best-selling Pop/Rock outfit, their first album since 2006's For Me, It's You. Over the course of 15 years, Train has made its mark on music history with their Grammy Award-winning song 'Drops of Jupiter (Tell Me)' and other chart-topping singles. Since forming in San Francisco in 1994, the multi-platinum selling band has traveled a long, s successful and sometimes arduous journey. Now, with their fifth album, Save Me San Francisco, Train has channeled their early days, revisiting the Roots Rock sound that has made the band such a tour de force and, in turn, the band is united stronger than ever before.

5.0 out of 5 stars Train are back! March 13, 2010
By MJ
Format:Audio CD
I think Train have really made a mark with this record, and it's probably their best since Drops of Jupiter - which has been very hard to top! This album overall has a catchy vibe and there's a few songs that really make me smile. It's quite a happy album, with a few slower songs here and there to even it out. This is for sure their comeback album!

Save Me, San Francisco: Awesome track! It has a slight country feel to it at first, but once the song starts to move along you find yourself tapping along and wondering when Train got so much groove. I love the "oh hell no!" part. 5/5

Hey, Soul Sister: Another toe-tapper... I just fell for this song when I first heard it. Something about the bongo sort of feel at the start, and then it just builds and you get into it. It's such a fun, happy song and always make me feel cheery! 5/5

I Got You: This track is in same sort of vibe as the previous two before it. Happy-clappy sort of music and easy to listen to. 4.5/5

Parachute: This track is a slight change than the other three before, more mellow and slowing down a little. It's a great song, more like the Train I'm used to hearing. I actually think of Daughtry when I hear it - not that that's a bad thing I guess. It has some really beautiful metaphors in the lyrics. 4.5/5

This Ain't Goodbye: This tracks slows it right down... and I LOVE this song. It's beautiful. Almost on a par with Drops of Jupiter. 5/5

If It's Love: Another catchy one; I like the fast-paced lyrics. 5/5

You Already Know: It takes a full minute for this song to get moving, so it drags a bit. But once you get past the start, it picks up and ends up being a pretty good track.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love This Album!! October 26, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Train is back! This record really captures a great mix of their old sounds AND new styles. Songs like "Breakfast in Bed", "Marry Me" and "You Already Know" really give off the old 'Train' CD vibe and then those like "I Got You" and "Brick By Brick" show more of the 'My Private Nation' and 'For Me, It's You' sound. There are a few tracks that sound similar to Pat's solo record but that doesn't mean that those songs aren't memorable! Overall. I was very pleased listening to the new one and after a 3 year gap, this is a very redeemable disc that should put Train back on the map! 5 stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best album since Drops of Jupiter October 28, 2009
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Don't get me wrong, I love all of Train's albums. Maybe a few more than others. There were some great songs on the past two, My Private Nation and For Me It's You, but I felt like both albums were over-produced and lacked that unique sound that was so amazing on the first two albums. Their debut album and Drops of Jupiter had, for lack of a better term, a REAL feel. As if to say "Yeah, we're singing about this really deep stuff, but we're singing about it in a way you can really relate to." Save Me San Francisco returns us to that frame of reference. The songs are witty, sometimes fun and sometimes moving (and sometimes both), and Monahan's vocal performance is more incredible than ever. A few of my personal favorites are "Parachute", "This Ain't Goodbye", and "Marry Me". "I Got You" has a rockin mash-up of The Doobie Brothers' "Black Water". The first single, "Hey, Soul Sister" is more for the mainstream radio audience, but still enjoyable. Conclusion: True Train fans are going to be pleasantly surprised! I will be listening to this non-stop for the next few months.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's better than the last one, but... October 28, 2009
Format:Audio CD
My initial impression is that "Save Me San Francisco" is a better CD than "For Me, It's You." There seems to be a more relaxed vibe to the songs, which is good. I read that the band wanted to get back to its roots, but I don't really hear that. I always thought that the first Train CD just had that recorded in the basement feel, something fresh and free. "Save Me" still has some of that slickness of the last two discs, but it's not trying for arena grandeur. The title track and "You Already Know" capture some of what Train used to be. The rest is good, but I don't think that I will be listening to it a lot a couple of months from now.

If only Rob Hotchkiss and Charlie Colin would come back. I think they would help sharpen the songwriting and flesh out the music. And help create that "thing" that made the first two Train CD's so memorable to me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Train Is Back December 29, 2009
Format:MP3 Music
With their catchy melodies, sometimes profound lyrics, and Pat Monahan's rather unconventional voice, Train has, for some time, been one of my favorite bands--and one of the most underrated, in my opinion. When I heard about Monahan's solo album, I was afraid the band had dissolved, so, naturally, I was very happy to hear about this album.

What sets Train apart from many other bands is that their music sounds heartfelt and, as such, escapes from the dreadfully manufactured sound of so many modern bands. Their music covers the gamut from soulful ballads to engaging ditties.

Favorites include the following:

Hey, Soul Sister: I hear it a lot on the radio, so I'm apparently not alone in thinking that this is a very catchy tune. This song is what I like to think of as quintessential Train. Though the Hawaiian feel to it isn't entirely original these days, it contains the unique lyrics at which Train excels at writing. It's the sort of song that makes me want to dance every time I hear it, and one that only seems to get better each time I hear it.

Parachute: A sweeping romantic ballad, that invokes some very lovely imagery. This song exemplifies one of my favorite things about Train's music: their inventive use of language. I also can't resist the dramatic music and Monahan's equally dramatic vocals.

This Ain't Goodbye: This sad breakup song is the perfect vehicle for Monahan's plaintive voice.

Marry Me: Another great love song. How could any woman resist a line like "Marry me, today and every day/if I ever get the nerve to say hello in this cafe"? The stripped down sound of the acoustic guitar and Monahan's vocals make this a very personal song.

Train's music is wonderful in and of itself, but what really makes this band special for me is their writing. Their lyrics always sound thoughtful and soul-searching. I'm happy to add this excellent release to my collection of much-loved Train albums.
