Train- Bulletproof Picasso Album Review

Train's latest album, Bulletproof Picasso, was just released on September 16th.  This album is fantastic!  The first single, Angel in Blue Jeans, has been on the radio for a month now and is already at the top of the charts.  While the song is catchy, it sounds a lot like Mermaid to me so I was worried the whole album might sound like a repeat of previous songs/albums.  I am happy to say that I was wrong.  The songs are definitely unique and original the album is worth checking out.  My favorite songs are Bulletproof Picasso and Give It All.  Pat Monahan, Train's frontman said, “I’ve always wanted to emotionally connect with people through the songs.  But I also want to get into people’s lives with this album. We’re very excited about Bulletproof Picasso and we’re looking forward to performing some of the new songs for all our fans.”  To find out more, visit Train's website.

You can order Bulletproof Picasso on iTunes or Amazon.
