Performance:   Sonics:
This is the first SACD I ever bought. I just had a SACD player on loan, and I wanted to hear more than just the two discs that came along with the player.
I went to my local record store and bought this album for no less than 33 Euros (which is about US$33) and it was a complete waste of money.
First of all Train seem like a one hit wonder to my, 1 good song on the whole album and the rest are fillers at best.
The other side of the story is the fact that it sounds like a MP3.

If youíre into uninspired, bland American rock and you have at best a mediocre setup you might like this SACD. If not stay away from it. Itís the second worst disc Iíve got in my collection.

I'm disappointed with this SACD. The sonics are CD quality. It's largest shortoming is that it lacks dynamics. Clarity is OK. In addition, most of the cuts/music are bland. The title tune is the only Top 40 selection. Not sure why this album sold so well.

Performance:   Sonics:
Why does train put out such great music that sounds like it was recorded in the bathroom at someone's house? Terrible sonic quality, not only on the SACD, but, on the cd also. In fact, this is no improvement whatsoever from the poorly recorded cd.

There are just some situations where one should be able to go back to the store and tell them "I'm sick and tired of being ripped off by the music industry". They can sell you an overpriced low quality product that can't be returned to the store, but, if you rip their crap off on the internet, they get all watery eyed and anal. Believe me, it all evens out. The government wants to destroy your computer if you download music. Would it be ok then for us to destroy the artists home if we don't apprecaite the trash they put out?

Congratulations to all of you who downloaded Train's cds before the gestapo got after you. Poor Train will make up for it by suckering another million people into buying there next poorly engineered cd and rape people for $14 to $19 a head!

You have got to be kidding with this one. Why did you bother with sacd technology, to rip us off or what. Listen to the 'Elton John' sacd's (which were done thirty years ago) and find out what sacd technology is all about. Don't waste your money. Worse than the cd version
