Metacritic. Retrieved on 2011-02-13. Allmusic editor Thom Jurek praised the band's existential lyrics and producer Brendan O'Brien's contribution to the album, stating "O'Brien's gorgeous multi-layered production ... chromatic shadings and the textures of contemporary psychedelia are rooted in the heart of an ambitious garage band ... he gets the sound of how big Train actually is in a context that is as aurally beautiful musically as it is emotionally and lyrically poignant".Jurek, Thom (2005). http://www.allmusic.com/album/r641704/review Review: My Private Nation. Allmusic. Retrieved on 2011-02-13. Entertainment Weekly s Ken Tucker dubbed it Train's "finest effort yet", complimenting the band's "amusingly self-deprecating lyrics" and the songs' "surface attractiveness".Tucker, Ken (June 6, 2003). http://www.ew.com/ew/article/0,,455409~4~0~myprivatenation,00.html Review: My Private Nation. Entertainment Weekly. Retrieved on 2011-02-13. Sean Daly of The Washington Post noted layers of "featherweight joy" and "Hallmark-deep, guitar-driven pop", and noted lead singer Pat Monahan's performance, "he throws his body into every lyric and sounds like a showoff cross between Live's Ed Kowalczyk and Journey's Steve Perry".Daly, Sean (June 4, 2003). https://pqasb.pqarchiver.com/washingtonpost/access/343590491.html?dids=343590491:343590491&FMT=ABS&FMTS=ABS:FT&type=current&date=Jun+04%2C+2003&author=Sean+Daly&pub=The+Washington+Post&desc=A+Train+of+Afterthought%3B+The+San+Francisco+Band+Populates+Its+'Nation'+With+Power+Ballads%2C+Singalongs&pqatl=google Review: My Private Nation. The Washington Post. Retrieved on 2011-02-13. E! Online commented that the band "sounds like a better Counting Crows (with a dreamier frontman) and less-challenging Wallflowers". Despite writing that "Pat Monahan's vocals can be a bit grating and Train's material sometimes strays into Black Crowes Lite range", Chicago Sun-Times writer Jeff Wisser called the album "a greatsounding collection of slight but irresistible little poprock confections", noting "a sure sense of songcraft and a well-honed pop sensibility" in the songwriting.Wisser, Jeff (June 22, 2003). http://nl.newsbank.com/nl-search/we/Archives?p_product=CSTB&p_theme=cstb&p_action=search&p_maxdocs=200&p_topdoc=1&p_text_direct-0=0FBE6A2F8577B5CB&p_field_direct-0=document_id&p_perpage=10&p_sort=YMD_date:D&s_trackval=GooglePM Review: My Private Nation.

Q gave the album three out of five stars and stated "Train continues to adhere firmly to the rootsy rock of fellow travellers Matchbox Twenty and Counting Crows, while their earnest musicianship and hard work will delight fans of that sort of thing". Jeff Puma of The Hartford Courant commended Train for their "sincere attempt at a positive message", but wrote "The effect, unfortunately, is schmaltz, and Train comes off as a poor man's Counting Crows".Puma, Jeff (June 5, 2003). Review: My Private Nation. The Hartford Courant. Retrieved on 2011-02-13. Rolling Stone writer Gavin Edwards called the band "radio-ready, professional and utterly dull", commenting that "The up-tempo songs are worse than the ballads, and the attempts at lyrical sass are even worse than the sentimental cliches".Edwards, Gavin (June 26, 2003). . Rolling Stone. Retrieved on 2011-02-13. Glenn Gamboa of Newsday found the band's "sorta rock" style "painfully predictable" on most songs, but stated "The last three songs - the Oasis-ish 'Your Every Color', the '80s power-ballad throwback 'Lincoln Avenue' and the gorgeous 'I'm About to Come Alive' - finally fulfill the promise hinted at in the previous seven songs and most of the previous two albums, for that matter".Gamboa, Glenn (June 3, 2003). https://pqasb.pqarchiver.com/newsday/access/342994751.html?dids=342994751:342994751&FMT=ABS&FMTS=ABS:FT&type=current&date=Jun+03%2C+2003&author=GLENN+GAMBOA&pub=Newsday+(Combined+editions)&desc=The+Eels%2C+Slippery+as+Ever+%2F+'Shootenanny!'+reveals+the+light+and+dark+sides+of+E&pqatl=google Review: My Private Nation. Newsday. Retrieved on 2011-02-13. Despite calling them "still essentially Matchbox Twenty Jr.", Los Angeles Times writer Steve Hochman commented that the band "expands its menu beyond vanilla, with some playfulness in words and music, and producer Brendan O'Brien helping bring some imagination to the arrangements".Hochman, Steve (June 1, 2003). http://articles.latimes.com/2003/jun/01/entertainment/ca-rack1/2 Review: My Private Nation.
