iTunes Review

The story goes that Josh Rouse’s marriage fell apart and he left Nashville for Spain to pick up the pieces. Well, this isn’t the emotionally draining set you might expect and it’s not an album that much reflects his stay in Country Music U.S.A. Rouse channeled his love and angst into a much more easily digestible treatise. He’s not all sun-n-fun, but his melodies tend towards the upbeat, and while a piano ballad like “Sad Eyes” carries a heavier vibe than most, it’s the vaguely country-influenced powerpop frolic of “It’s the NIghttime “ and “Winter in the Hamptons” that proves the singer-songwriter is as dedicated as ever to exploring the textures of early 1970s orchestration and the warm, inviting AM radio ease of that singer-songwriter era. He may be down but he’s not out. His fifth studio album continues the critically acclaimed songwriter’s streak of writing those oddly familiar tunes that you can’t quite place. This pleasurable déjà vu works throughout alluring tunes such as “Streetlights,” “Middle School Frown” and “Saturday.” Sure he sings “My Love is Gone” but his capable musicianship and natural wit never abandon him.

Brilliant - Buy for Sad Eyes, but Enjoy it All!

I discovered Josh Rouse, in the Thanksgiving 2005 episode of Grey's Anatomy. His brilliant song, "Sad Eyes," plays during the coda at the end. An absolutely amazing four minutes of television. This song is one of my favorites ever, but after buying the entire album I've come to love Rouse's music, and I recommend it to all! Buy for "Sad Eyes," from Grey's Anatomy, but get all the songs, for the genius that is Josh Rouse!

I like it!

This album is really good. It is different and I like all the songs, especially winter in the hamptons. This is a good buy people!!

Rainy day music (the best kind)

This is hands down one of my favorite cds and every song is deeper than it seems! I would definitely recommend Middle School Frown and Saturday.
