I dont think I could agree more with this review if I tried. This train wreck of an album is by far the WORST TRAIN ALBUM EVER! What were they thinking!?

Hey....lets make a record with lyrics impressive only to teenage girls and lets see if we can make every other song sound like a Hey Soul Sister clone.

If this is their new direction, count me out. I have never been so bitterly disappointed in an album by a band I love so much and have for so long. Why are they trying to be a insipid "boy band" for pete's sake!?

I just cant get over just how bad this new album is. It doesnt even sound like Train anymore. I am seeing them tonight in St Louis, but after reading that they are playing most of this new awful album and only a brief "medley" of all their great older songs, this will be my first Train concert (my 9th) where I am actually more excited to see the warm up acts (Andy Grammer and Mat Kearney) than I am to see Train, which is sadly pathetic.

It's pretty bad when the truth is that the best Train album of the last 4-5 years was Pat Monahan's solo album "Last Of Seven". I'd be happy to hear half of that album than this new garbage. This will probably be my last Train concert if this is where Train is heading.

I dunno, I kind of the like the singles I've heard from this... even if their choruses have the exact same melody...

Okay, I really like 50 Ways to Say Goodbye after a few times hearing it on the radio. It's the only song on the radio I can stand right now, other than Somebody That I Used to Know, which I'm somehow still not tired of.

I didn't love the last CD as compared to 'For me, it's you'. But I had to admit that 'Soul Sister' was at least a clever song and there cant be any debate about the commercial success of it.

'California 37' is all of that and less. It's the most disappointing CD that I've purchased in... well..... ever.

Abysmal, Attrocious, Bad, Boring, Crappy, Crud, Dumb, Dreadful.... shall I go on through the alphabet?

Please don't. You already misspelled a word before you even got to 'B'.

It's good that in general this site reviews music from a harsh skeptic third person perspective, however, i can't help but sense a great deal of acrimony from this review. In no way am i defending train or adding to the peevish bashing but i must say this: train is doing what they've always done, "drops of jupiter" wasn't exactly branching out from mainstream nor were any songs from preceding or following albums. With time, the parameters of mainstream changed and train's sound modified to move with it. And i know that my next comment is going to get some hate but i cant exactly find a reviewer credible if they criticize train for mainstream pop...and the stroke anberlin d**ks as if they weren't doing the same thing in the alternative genre.

Dafuq. Drive by is the worst song recorded ever.

Groovy? Srsly?

On the other side of a street I knew
Stood a girl that looked like you
I guess thats deja vu

No. That's not what a deja vu is.

Hefty bag to hold my love

It's a train wreck... Their name is 'Train'. I get it! That's a good one. My knee is sore from all the slapping.

50 ways to goodbye is impressive

the beginning rips off of shakira's hips don't lie
the verses rip off of phantom of the opera
and the chorus rips off a song right on this album (drive by!)

i may have made this comment before
