Since their founding in 1993, the San Francisco rock group Train has released ten studio albums and a number of iconic singles, like "Drops of Jupiter," "Hey, Soul Sister," and "Calling All Angels." On November 9, Train will commemorate 25 years as a band with their first-ever compilation album, simply entitled Greatest Hits.
The 17-track album collects tracks from every one of the band's studio albums and includes their latest single, "Call Me Sir." Exclusive to this set is a brand-new cover of one of frontman Pat Monahan's favorite '80s classics, George Michael's "Careless Whisper," featuring Kenny G on saxophone. Greatest Hits arrives on CD and digital download on November 9. The album is available now for pre-order at the links below!

Train jumped the shark years ago. Sadly, Pat has not written a great song since Marry Me, almost 10 years ago. He still has a great voice, but it has been wasted on sub-standard songs since Save Me San Francisco. The two other original members (Scott and Jimmy) quit when the direction of the band changed from rock n' roll to synthetic kiddie pop. This hits package is nothing more than a re-hashing of the same tired songs that they have been doing in concert over the last few years. Some newbies may like it, and good for them if they do. Music is all about taste, but today's Train leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Sad, they were a very good band, back in the day.
Reed, I completely agree! Sad, as they were a breath of fresh air when they first came on the scene. When they were actually a band, not the Pat Monahan’s "Train". I still enjoy their first couple of albums, along with the E.P "One And A Half", but they went downhill fast after Rob Hotchkiss left. I'll pass!!
