The first time I listened to your voice was with "Drops of Jupiter" for me as a Program Director of an Adult Contemporary Radio Station in the Dominican Republic, it's "insane" to get that involve with a group and an artist as I did with Train. I had to buy the CD for myself, because I was playing so much the song over the radio that people would think I got crazy (which I completely did).
Completely in love with all your music, and being tempted all the time to play each and every song of all your albums on the radio station, I decided to declare and give people the awarness that I was crazy about you, so they are becoming crazier and crazier about you. Your Lyrics, your music, the catchy of your songs, the sadness and the fun... sometimes irreverent, make you special and unique, one of the few bands that all the albums can be called "Greatest Hits" at least in the playlist of my heart... "Calling all Angels", "She's on Fire", "When I look in your eyes", "Half Moon Bay", "The Finish Line", "Hey Soul Sister" (For me one of the Few Classics of the 2000 Decade, I can count them with the fingers of one of my hands) and one of my favorites "This Ain't Goodbye"... "Marry me" the simplicity of beauty (by the way Pat, you should seriously think about acting)... "If it's Love" the funny side of be in love.
California 37, has a different mood, with the same escense that is "so part of you guys". Nothing like "Mermaid"... catchy as "Drive By"... "You can finally Meet my Mom"... Fantastic! This´ll be my year, let's say super creative... all of them fabulous.
Now I have the Big Problem to keep on looking and decide of which one is my favorite for this album, but my great love for Train is not a Drive by, so I'll open up and be your Parachute... I'll never let you down...
