Wow, what a breath of fresh air this is. Saw a favourable review on this and decided to chance it and boy am i glad i did. This album has the rare distinction these days of not having a duff track on it. Josh deals with the same earnest aldut themes as a Coldplay or a Travis, but it's all passed through a 1970's Steely Dan filter, so the message and the feel of the songs are all drsssed up in lovely sugary tunes and faultless melodies. You know you have found something special, when the minute you hear it, you know you have to get everything else the artist has done. Why is this man not a superstar?

It becomes clear only moments into Josh's fourth album 1972 that things have moved on for the american song writer. The title track 1972 just drips harmony and sunshine and washs over you so effortelessly. It really does make your day all the better for listening to it. This is Josh in a much happy state. I read recently that Nebraska, Home and Cold Blue Stars were part of a trilogy and this album was meant as a departure from them. Well, it is and could quite possibly be his best album.
Each track is so smooth, smooth, smooth- with the production values more consistent with music from the decade the album is based upon. Josh has never sounded better.
When track 3 hits and it's hook gets you, you will really know love. It's called Sunshine and it certainly is.

A friend lent me a copy of this to listen to. Having never heard of Josh Rouse and having lots of other music to keep me occupied, I didn't get round to putting it on for a few weeks, but when I did I found it instantly appealing. I listened to it again the next day, then twice the day after, by the end of the week I was hooked. Can't quite put my finger on what it is about this album, after all the lyrics aren't particularly groundbreaking, but his distinctly soothing voice and lovely guitar work make this album a pleasure to listen to. I've played it so much over the last year or so now that it will go down as one of those pieces of music that difines a period in my life.

I saw him play live in a small intimate club a few weeks after getting into this album, he covered most of the tracks from 1972......it was one of the most satisfying gigs I've ever been to.

Some may say "That's a bit dull isn't it?" Others "It'll be nice in the background while people are over". I say no! It's lovely, it's really good! If you like lying back and feeling sad, happy and a bit Sundayish, buy this. It's sort of americana nu-country meets stax horns with a bit of porch sitting maybe? And Grant Lee Buffalo, Fuzzy era meets Curtis Mayfield. Or maybe it's more like......................

I hadn't bought or listened to any Josh Rouse before but I have to say I was pleasantly surprised with this album. True it may be a bit of a pastiche of early 70's styles but it's the sort of music that you can listen to and it'll put you in a better frame of mind or cheer you up! The music is light with some excellent lyrics and matches JR's vocal style too. All in all highly recommended.

I was lucky enough to come across Josh Rouse by accident. I just wish I have more accidents like this.
This is just one fantastic album. The songs are extremely well written & lyrically strong. Delivery is superb. There are not many albums that I've listened to lately that I can say really grab me so it was a great find to me to come across such a well put together masterpiece.
Well done Josh. I will be buying more of your superb music.

The man's a legend. Catch him live if you can, a real must see.
1972 is so accessible and listenable. Since I've had it, it's hardly left my stereo.
I reallt don't understand how this guy is still so unknown, he should be a superstar...but maybe that would take the edge from his glorious music.
Buy this and all his other albums, it's worth every penny

A great album from a criminally under-rated artist. Josh Rouse's relaxed, bluesy style gets a great workout here. This was the album that prompted me to buy JR's entire back catalogue.
