Save Me, San Francisco
I love the new Train CD, Save Me, San Francisco.
Instead of trying to recreate the full orchestra sound of their mega-hit, "Drops of Jupiter," they're back to their, mm, less-produced sounding, sometimes bluesy, sometimes clever, often catchy, and usually organic sound. If you listen to top 40 radio, you've probably been hearing the single, "Hey, Soul Sister" which is slightly reminiscent of their "Meet Virginia" days. But the rest of the album hangs together really well, and Pat Monahan's voice still sounds absolutely fantastic.
