AllMusic Review by

For a debut release, Blue Train Station sounds very mature in its accurate display of classic rhythm and blues tinged with portions of folk-rock, psychedelia, and Hammond organ garage stomp. More than mere camp '60s revivalism, The Cynics hit upon a style of timeless, melodic rock with momentous pop melodies. The title track chugs along like a locomotive with full-powered R&B guitar strum and harmonica blasts, while the snarling punk scream of "No Way" is aided by the use of maracas. This album was later remixed and re-released as Blue Train Sessions with a bonus track on CD.
