"Drops of Jupiter, San Francisco's Train employ all the tools of the roots-rock trade--mandolin, harmonica, bongos and crisp acoustic guitar--to evoke that sort of "everything's gonna be all right" sentiment common in so many great pop rock songs. But this isn't a band that relies solely on its precursors for inspiration. These accomplished musicians never overplay, and understand the value of a well-placed synthesized accent or guitar effect. On tracks such as "I Wish You Would", they command a plugged-in assertion that lends an inspiring jolt to their acoustic instrumentation. The title track is the album's epicentre. With swelling strings and chorded piano melody, the song sounds as if it were lifted from some lost tapes of Elton John's Madman Across the Water. It sweeps you up in an irresistible top-of-the-lungs sing-along and becomes the reference point for the rest of the album.
To match "Homesick," a song about needing to feel known is "It's About You" where Monahan pleads with a woman to need him and to rely on him.
Perhaps the most telling sign of the band's maturity comes in the next two songs. Matching "Free" is "Respect." Instead of a song about longing and being a "fool" for the way he's acted, Monahan sings about needing to respect others and asking forgiveness.
