Train has maintained their reputation for being able to make music of excellence in their third and latest album "From me, it's you". The album has all the makings of a memorable record. It just shows that this is no band that you can ignore. They are going to keep shining because they really are so good. Vocalist/lyricist Pat Monahan's lyrics have provided the base for instrumentalists Jimmy Stafford, Scott Underwood, Johnny Colt and Brandon Bush to add their personal touches to the songs to really make the record sound as good as it does. The vocalist's penchant for song writing can be seen straight through this record.
One more fact to the credit of the band that shines right through the album is that the band isn't anymore only about Pat's lyrics. The guitarist Jimmy Stafford's solos are a first considering the bands first two albums. Johnny Colt and Brandon Bush on bass guitar and keyboards respectively play a bigger than role than before. Drummer Scott Underwood is keeping the basics of their music strong on his drum kit, right through the album. The instrumentalists have certainly played a larger role than what they had done previously. But this is nothing like "Drops of Jupiter". Another space that this collection of great music has traversed upon is the variety in the music from the beginning till the end. Forms of music ranging from jazz to classic rock and back to that backing of an orchestra are present in the album.
The band deserves to pat themselves on the back for coming out with this wonderful collection of music. It is one music album that can be reserved for all moods that one can possibly feel. Clearly, Train has showed the world that they have the ability to be one of the most impressive acts in the international music scene.
This is for sure that if they continue to make good music, they will be uncategorizable, which will not only help print their name on charts, but will also print their names in people hearts. They don't necessarily make rock music, but they are worth a listen and are worth getting crazy over any day. There's only one downside to it. If you happen to depend on the Internet for your chords, lyrics and pictures of the band, you will have a real hard time finding anything at all.
