Train, “California 37″

For an impeccably crafted pop-rock rec­ord, Train’s sixth LP is surprisingly deranged. That’s thanks to Pat Monahan’s lyrics, an eccentric, grammatically dubious mix of confessions and score-settling. In one song, Monahan pledges that when he gets to heaven he’ll hang with his wife and ignore the celebs (like “the dude who played the sheriff in Blazing Saddles”). There’s philosophy (“Even Bieber ain’t forever”), and a song where Monahan calls his beloved a mermaid and name-checks Johnny Depp. It’s all catchy enough to keep you listening, slack-jawed.
