11 Songs, 37 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

It's telling that the lead single to Train's eighth studio release, “Play That Song,” is based on the 1938 standard "Heart and Soul”: The group has quietly built a platinum-clad legacy on timeless melody (“Drops of Jupiter” anyone?). a girl a bottle a boat is stacked with soaring hooks and carpe diem sentiments, from the moment singer Patrick Monahan encourages us to “take this moment and put it in a glass” on “Drink Up” to the closing fade of “You Better Believe.” Add a dash of samba-inflected sunshine on “Lottery” and a full-throttle, love-struck anthem like “The News,” and a girl a bottle a boat is blast of positivity from a band that loves being the bearer of good news.

Straying off the tracks

I don't know what inspiration Train have had with their last album and this one, but they are straying further and further away from what made them a great band: well made songs with thoughtful lyrics and deeper undertones. This album whilst it isn't bad, just doesn't feel like a Train album. It's generic pop through dance and R&B, nothing on it resonates or has any real depth. The closest that comes to old school train is Working Girl.

I'm a huge fan of Train, but this is going down a different track. If you liked the last album, you'll like this one. Just don't expect anything like Mississippi or This Ain't Goodbye.
