"On the sophomore album by this Philadelphia folksy-country fivesome,singer-songwriter Jon Houlon steps confidently into his own...The growth spurt is most evident,though,in Houlon''s songs and the easygoing,conversational way he sings https://www.tradebit.comsapointment and despair are elucidated with mordant wit and telling detail."

Shaun Dale

"...the songs of John Train swell like an accidental fat-lip-sorta painful,sorta funny and a metaphor,really,for everything to do with https://www.tradebit.com group''s second record,Looks Like Up(Record Cellar) ...both ups the ante of Houlon''s songwriting and expands the group''s sonic palate...It''s a little bit Tom T. Hall and a whole lotta John Prine."
Joey Sweeney
Philadelphia Weekly

Jon Houlon lyrically inflicts up his razor sharp wit through and through with the balance of the CD being held together by the tight unit of Brenner,Demarest,Tucker,and Fergusson sculpting for the listener a virtual twang-grass soundscape."

"John Train will stand out,even in days like these when everybody wants to be in a country rock band."
Maurice Dielsmans

"Oddly enough,there''s even more major and minor arcana that crop up throughout ''Looks Like Up'',and
although it seems slightly schitzophrenic,John Train manages to blend all of these crosscurrents into a cohesive sonic presentation."
