    Singer Pat Monahan has a Michael Stipe-esque voice: part whine part sneer, but with an added dollop of believeable pathos. On this second album, his four colleagues concoct intriguing backdrops... [#180, p.112]
  2. These five regular San Francisco joes know a thing or two about the kind of midtempo, acoustic-based rock that makes for a smooth, radio-ready ride.
  3. Not only do many of the tunes have a similar feel, but Monahan, whose dusty vocals put the band on the map with the hit single "Meet Virginia" in 1999, is regularly drowned out by the soaring guitars and effects.
  4. Train is a classic rock wannabe band in the mold of Counting Crows.

    Like Collective Soul, Vertical Horizon, and Matchbox Twenty before them, Train is a fairly faceless, generic rock band that writes straight-ahead, sing-along tunes. As a result, some of the songs on this, their second album, will make some people happy -- and other people just sleepy.
  6. The music fails to gain any momentum until track seven, and by then, Train's lucky the listener's still spinning the CD.
  7. "She's On Fire," the opener from San Francisco-based Train's second release, promises a solid if not memorable rock 'n' roll effort. Unfortunately, penning this catchy and muscular rocker seems to have sapped the boys' creative well.

    I don't usually go out of my way to write a review, but just needed to express that from where I'm standing, "Drops of Jupiter" is perhaps oneI don't usually go out of my way to write a review, but just needed to express that from where I'm standing, "Drops of Jupiter" is perhaps one of the strongest Pop compositions to ever be put to paper.

    Its melody and lyrics are driven by profound emotion and wit, not to mention its world-class orchestral arrangement, which deserve the song a permanent place in Pop history's greatest moments. I can't believe critics on here would ride their high horse, have the heard the music that's out today??

Some of my favorite songs are from this CD and Drops of Jupiter is a great song but tracks like "Hopeless" and "Let It Roll" where he pours his heart into the lyrics are just wonderful meaningful tracks and it amazes me how great of lyrics he is able to come up with.

    The album gets one point for not being completely atonal. There is nothing on this record that hasn't been done before. For once, the The album gets one point for not being completely atonal. There is nothing on this record that hasn't been done before. For once, the critics are right. Expand
