CD Reviews

Awesome, awesome job
Robert Wilson | Wakefield, RI United States | 10/28/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Pat Monahan is a brilliant singer, and brilliant lyricist. Whether you like him, or not, you have to admit the man has got one of the best voices out there. I love this cd, because for me personally, I love songs with strong meanings, being sung that way, and Pat does this stellarly on this cd. He as a solo artist doesnt get near enough attention, and his band train, doesnt get enough attention as a group either. I highly recommend that you go out and buy this cd, and Train cds to boot, because this is good old time music, with meaning, sung to perfection. Cathcy tunes, along with a wonderful vocal range, makes for a great cd."
Just What Music Needs!

"In the days of lost music, lost messages, and lost sound........Pat Monahan gives music what is has lacked for years....a solid voice, a soulful sound, and music with a positive message. In the likes of Darius Rucker, Edwin McCain who all have gone out to solo careers but still remained a main part of their bands, Pat does the same and does it well!

Great cd, make sure to BUY IT, support those great artists of our times and not those that have negative and derogatory tunes, but support the Pat Monahan and D Rucker's of the world as they give our kids and our generation something positive to listen to and they show they will only write and sing what type of tunes they love.

Roots Rock Baby! The CD starts off with the 30 second title track diddy, then breaks right into the first single "Her Eyes" which is a pumped up soulful collaboration. Then it breaks into "2 Ways..." which has an awesome catchy bridge that will surely have you singing after 1 listen. Then you get to "Someday" where you get Pat's amazing voice belting and the choir backing him, then right after the soulful sound you get "Cowboys & Indians" a song with an intersting background and comparison's of various societal groups compared to the old school Cowboys & Indians.

After the first 5 songs Pat breaks into a risky arrangement "Ohh My My" which will have you hyped and wondering exactly what the lyrics are tied to and looking for the behind the lyrics meanings. Next is "Thinkin Bout You" a wonderful showing of how Pat's voice can hit anywhere on the charts and sing to just about any tune. Then the high point of the mid-album point hits in "Raise Your Hands" a song that will surely get you hyped and will play over and over once you hear it once. Let it get through the intro and all the instruments hit and Pat gets into it with his all, not to mention the melodic background by the choir again. Great song! Then you get "Always Midnight" a classic showing of Pat's slower side and the higher pitched voice arrangement we have all come to love. Then back to a song that has a ton of meaning in regards to relationships and life experiences that you must go embark on and the happiness or an "Great Escape" that every life needs.

The album ends with an array of songs that put all styles to rest and get you ready for the replay. It starts with "Ripple in the Water" a great song about wanting to be more, but not needing all the material things. Just enjoy life and be special to someone special. "Girlfriend" is a slower song that explains the story of relationships in this time and age, the good and the bad and the choices we all face during the good's and bad's. The album hits it all-time high with "Pirate on the Run" a crazy sick duet with a bridge that will just send shivers down you for sure.

Then the end comes with "Shine" a slow beat that only Pat could really make into a great song and Pat once again showing you the array's he can put forth with his voice.

Overall a great album, listen once and you'll like it, listen 2-3 times and you'll fall in love with it. Great Job! Can't wait to hear the next one and really can't wait for the next Train album!

Go buy it today folks!

One of the BEST albums I've ever owned!!

"I have been a long time Train fan, and was incredibly excited to get this new solo album from Pat Monahan. I was (again) blown away by this incredible man. His voice is like no one else out there. In our new world of downloading music, this is one rare album worth going out and buying the actual CD. I have owned it for about 3 weeks, and must have listened to it 100 times already. There are so many singers out there that all sound the same and sing about the same things. Pat's music is so real, honest and these are songs anyone can relate to. We attended his concert last Sunday, and truly, he is even better live. If you have the chance to see him live, do yourself a big favor and GO!! I was blown away by the strength and energy in his vocal range. The experience was incredible. He even took the time to come out after the show and talk with the fans and sign some autographs. This guy is the real thing. Great talent, great stage presence, superior voice. Go buy this album TODAY! It is INCREDIBLE!!"
