An absolute belter of an album, I can't praise it enough. I am sure some fans of Josh might struggle with the change in style somewhat but the whole album just has such a fun feel to it. Lyrically it is so creative and the opening 3 tracks are the strongest on any album I've heard for a long while, which sets up the remainder beautifully. There's a fair amount of diversity in the songs and I think this album should be more commercially accessible, thus giving Josh the success he deserves. I already can't wait to see where he goes next, because he just keeps getting better and adding more strings to his bow. Genius.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, 30 May 2006
Just get this. Seriously. If you've ever liked any singer-songwriter track ever, then there is no way you won't like this. The best example of the genre by an undervalued master who's finally signed for a label that might help get his music out there, every sing is a real gem and is a culmination of where his preious work was taking him.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another side of Mr Rouse, 21 April 2006
Far more laid-back and upbeat than any previous effort, this album is (on first listen) a fair effort but nothing special. A few more listens and you begin to see the change in Josh's music is for the better. Where "Nashville" was a fanstitic, emotional, reflective journey and "Under Cold Blue Stars" gave us Josh in a fairly downbeat, lovelorn guise, "Subtitulo" shows Mr Rouse as a content man, taking it easy and seeing what comes to him. It's a more honest album than any, other than perhaps "Home" and is a real grower. Get it now!
