I participated in the Train Bulletproof Picasso album review program as a member of One2One Network. I was provided a free album to review but all opinions are my own.
Music is my jam. I love discovering new songs on the radio, finding new artists performing in town and back in the day, I loved interviewing various bands. This week, I’ve been listening to the newest album from Train – to be released on September 16.
It. Is. Fantastic.
I loved rocking out to ‘Hey Soul, Sister’ and ‘Drops of Jupiter’ years ago. A few weeks ago, I recall hearing their newest single, ‘Angel in Blue Jeans,’ on the radio and I immediately couldn’t get enough. I wanted more from the record.
‘Bulletproof Picasso’ is the band’s seventh album. The majority of the album is radio-friendly (at least, I hope stations pick it up and play more than one song!) This is not a one-hit wonder album for them. There isn’t a song that I didn’t like. And if you’re into pop/rock music, you will probably finding yourself dancing along to the songs in the car or at your desk. It happens to the best of us.
When I watched the video for ‘Cadillac Cadillac’ my son overheard it and wanted to watch with me. He loved the beat and immediately started dancing to it. The title track (‘Bulletproof Picasso’) is catchy and I’m sure I’ll have the words memorized to this album soon. As it stands, I know at least 2 or 3 of the songs already. (I was able to listen to the album in it’s entirety while on the road yesterday – 7 hours in the car gave me plenty of time to get to know the guys from Train all over again!)
I was able to see the band years ago when they performed a festival in Asheville. I had mixed reviews of that show (and I honestly think it could have been the festival part.) I had friends at that show who had a blast. Sadly, their current tour schedule doesn’t have them in my town, but Train will be performing live on the QVC channel on September 5th at 5pm ET – so we can all tune in and see them!
Are you a fan of Train? What new music have you discovered lately?
