...every one bitches about the quality or lack thereof of modern music yet one of thebest bands out there is barely mentioned.
Hasn't anyone heard of Train?
If not, do yourself a favor and grab any one of thier albums. They have a few big hits but honestly, the best songs are not the top 40 singles heard on the radio.
The lyrics are simple with simple meanings but if you think about it for second, you realize how deep they can actually be. Coupled with excellent instrumental skills and musical arrangements, you get complex songs made up of simple parts. The better the sound system you play them on, the more details pop out. Add to that the lead singer's unique voice and dynamic vocal range and it certainly is a treat!
I heard thier first album Train (self titled debut) after catching part of teh song Meet Virginia on a local college/underground radio station. I found thier album a few weeks later and grabbed it. Then I heard "Meet Virginia" damn near every day until my head was ready to explode! The rest of the album more than made up for it though and I was hooked. I pre-ordered Drops of Jupiter with seeing only the album cover on Amazon.com. Then, My Private Nation made a rather uneventful debut around this time last year and I finally picked it up earlier this year. This is, hands down, thier best album yet!
So if you havn't grabbed an album from these guys, go get one. Any one of them. You will not be dissappointed.
