Outstanding combo of rock, rockabilly, surf, alternative, an
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In their Pamplin debut, This Train strikes a blow for Christian rockabilly music. But it doesn't stop there - the album contains elements of alternative, rock, surf, country, and old-time gospel (Be sure to look for Track 51). Mark, Jordan, and Cobra Joe (Beki Hemingway is now a solo act) have done a masterful job of using humor in songs like "Mimes of the Old West", and "I've Got Half a Mind". The guitar work is excellent, with extended solos throughout, including instrumental numbers "Hangar 54" and "Seafoam Green".The band even pays tribute to some old influences, covering a raucous version of the Hank Williams, Sr. classic "I Saw the Light". This, along with "A Million Years",(co-written by the late Rich Mullins) and "(We're Getting) Nowhere Fast", have received much airplay and among the most-requested songs in their category.In all, for Christian-rock lovers, this album is a MUST. You will laugh, learn, and wonder where in the world some of these lyrics come from. Their first release, "You're Soaking in It", is much less accessible, but also worth purchasing (****1/2 of 5)."
Who knew Christian music could be this much fun!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Christian music these days seems to be something that people love to deem as boring or repetative. Anyone who becomes big take on this "rock-star"status which is contrary to what Christian music is all about. This Train provides us with a unique, fun, witty, fast-paced alternative to the same old thing. If you love seing, rockabilly, surfer, or punk music, you are garaunteed to love this album. it is COMPLETELY original and real."
Fantastic Christian Message with an Upbeat Rocakbilly Vibe.

"Mark Robertson and Comapany let there brilliance shine through on the latest release from This Train. Each track is laced with so much Christian positivity and energy that you can't help but like these guys. Anyone who can write a beautiful song like "Goodbye" and then crank one out like the hilarious "Mimes of the Old West" is a genius in my book. The playing on the cd is first rate and the writing is also great. The bands comic ability also shows through on "We're going nowhere (fast)" which was written after having dinner with Dc Talk. The song contains hysterical lines like "sure we ain't as cute as Toby, Mike or Kevin."There is also an excellent cover of the Hank Williams classic "I Saw the Light." This cd is the total package."
