12 Songs, 43 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Train sound as vital as ever on Bulletproof Picasso, made 15 years after their blockbuster debut. Here, they dance with a variety of pop-rock styles like a quarterback at the prom. "Angel in Blue Jeans" is spaghetti western pop, its stomping beat abetted by Tex-Mex guitars and ... is that a whip cracking? "Cadillac Cadillac" has a vibrant, Bruno Mars–style '50s vivacity to it. "Give It All" is a sweeping ballad à la Coldplay, and "I'm Drinking Tonight" nods to Nashville, as befits a tune about whisky. Tapping hitmaking producers like Greg Kurstin (Sia), Butch Walker (Katy Perry), and Espionage (Beyoncé), the record features some of Train's most stylistically ambitious songwriting, with vocalist Pat Monahan channeling everyone from Paul McCartney to Wilson Pickett.

FIRST REVIEW!!

At first I'm like why did train decide to go pop still,but then I heard it and really surprised they pulled it off. I mean it's no Drops Of Jupiter but it's decent and I think they've passed my test. What I also like is it's no really really mainstream like every song today it's pop with a train twist. I like it,I would be curious to see how they pull this off...

Was hoping for an improvement from their last album. Maybe this is just their new sound. Ill just go listen to drops of jupiter and forget all this

Train. Angel in Blue Jeans

You just know this album is amazing and spectacular. Train is the best band out there. Pats vocals are heavenly. The band is back to their roots and the music reflects all the great talent that has won them Grammys. This is a must buy!
