  • Summary: The San Francisco band's fourth studio album was produced by Brendan O'Brien and includes a cover of Sugar's "If I Can't Change Your Mind."
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 3 out of 7
  2. Negative: 1 out of 7
  1. Train sounds refreshed and relaxed on "For Me, It's You." [4 Feb 2006]
  2. Sure, the band is still peddling the same vaguely Americana M.O.R. sound that the Wallflowers and Counting Crows perfected in the mid-'90s, but for once it actually sounds interesting.
  3. The sound of For Me, It's You, is less strident than that of the band's previous offerings, but it's edgier and digs deeper into older musics and styles.
  4. The songs here sound more than just professional--they sound surprisingly lived-in and earthy. [9 Feb 2006, p.64]
  5. Train continue to rumble down a middling path. [3 Feb 2006, p.70]
  6. The music is often too banal to be good, let alone great. [6 Feb 2006]
  7. "Get Out" and "Am I Reaching You Now" strive for massive arena-rock grandeur, and, while Train is slick and professional enough a band to pull that off, what prevents the album from working even as marginally as X&Y and certainly not as well as The Constantines' Tournament Of Hearts is the banality of the songs' lyrics.
