Train's Bulletproof Picasso Album Review (#BulletproofPicasso and #O2O)

Have you been singing Hey, Soul Sister since it was released by American rock band Train in 2009? They'll be releasing their seventh album Bulletproof Picasso on September 16th, and I had early access to the album, thanks to Sony and the One2One network. You may have already heard the album's first single, Angel in Blue Jeans

The album is the band's seventh and the first released since drummer Scott Underwood left, being replaced by new drummer Drew Shoals. The album is made up of 12 songs (tracklist below). My favorite song is I Will Remember which I'm hoping they release as a single. It has a great tone and melody that is catchy and I can see being popular out there. I also enjoyed Don't Grow Up So Fast and Bulletproof Picasso, where singer Pat Monahan tries to create an emotional connection to the listener. Overall, a catchy, upbeat album that should do very well in the market. Any Train fan would want to get.

If you read this review early enough, you can catch Train on QVC on September 5th at 5pm EDT for a one hour live record release show.

Train will be showcasing new tracks in celebration of the album’s upcoming release with shows in Los Angeles, New York, and their hometown of San Francisco among others.

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.
