Train's self-produced debut is such a solid effort from beginning to end, it's surprising that "Meet Virginia" was the only successful single. The album's effortless atmosphere makes it hard to believe the band members made this with money they threw together. Twangy guitars, tight drumming, and soulful vocals that carry honest lyrics are mixed to perfection here. Even the final hidden track, a low-key acoustic jam, showcases singer Pat Monahan's expressive singing and inspired songwriting.
