Nashville ~ Josh Rouse
Nashville ~ Josh Rouse
Having recently seen Josh live in Lisbon, and having been a loving fan since his first CD came out, I am surprised each and every day with his skills as a musician. But "Nashville" beats every expectation I could have had. "It's the Nightime" is a classic catchy pop tune; and "Streetlight" is a beautiful melody inspired by music itself - "rock'n'roll/ (...) tell me how it feels to be a nervous man / at the wheels / you don't have a masterplan / but you will start today / you will start today" - but when it comes to "Sad Eyes" and "Life", we go further than any living solo musician has gone.

I'm afraid this book will be largely misunderstood by english-speaking audiences. Because of Saramago's large paragraphs, some readers will be put off from a story that is essentially a mistery novel, and a great one at that. Tertuliano, the main character, is a school teacher who leads a boring life when, one day, he is faced with the image of a man who looks exactly like him. He becomes obsessed about finding this character and, within a short amount of time, we are taken on a rollercoaster of emotions and events in a page turner you just can't put down. Trust me: this is one of the fundamental existential thrillers in any language. You will love it.

This must be Eitzel's best solo album since 60 Watt Silver Lining. It's probably even better. He was in top form at his latest London gig, where he sang most of his new stuff and actually made the audience laugh with his bitter, sarcastic jokes. And he is back with a new sound, so delicious in this homemade album - songs like 'Sbine', 'Anything' or 'Steve I Always Knew' are true gems and true motives to think he can drive his amazing talent to where it belongs.
