California 37 by Train
Released: Apr 2012
Label: Columbia
Like most Train albums, California 37 is an encyclopedia of references to the greater Bay Area: the fog, the bridges, the wineries, the spiritual renewal (if one can afford it). After Save Me, San Francisco put the band back on top, Pat Monahan's wordplay is faster and more flamboyant than ever, particularly on "This'll Be My Year," a Billy Joel-inspired run down of civilization's ups and downs since the '80s. The music is equally flashy; inspired by the party-hard nature of Latin dance-pop, "Drive By" wouldn't sound out of place in your favorite taquería.
