Product Description

Product Description

Josh Rouse's fifth and finest album to date. Includes the single 'Winter In The Hamptons'

Amazon.co.uk

Though he's titled his fifth album Nashville, don't mistake Josh Rouse for the Stetson-clad likes that normally emerge from America's Music City. Rouse is more of a sensitive singer-songwriter in a Ryan Adams vein, and on Nashville the acoustically-armed troubadour is accompanied by a full band from beginning to end. Stylistically, it's similar to his previous album, 1972, all shot through with mid-tempo melancholy (even the cover is blue), an effect that's heightened by the regular appearance of a wailing steel guitar (which even shows up amidst the sleighbells of the relatively upbeat "Winter in the Hamptons"). But really, its mood and tone is so consistent that few tracks really stand out (though "It's the Nighttime", "My Love Has Gone" and the aforementioned "Winter in the Hamptons" come close). Instead, the whole of Nashville has a pace and delivery that's so laid-back it risks disengaging the listener entirely. Those who make the effort, however, will find treasures in abundance on Nashville. --Robert Burrow

In the age of single track downloads, it's a rare pleasure to discover an album that does not leave you fidgeting with the skip button on the remote control every few seconds.
As the Amazon review suggests, the album does have a consistent feel and tempo throughout, providing the perfect backdrop to the end of a busy day. This might tempt some to place the album in the dull MOR / AOR category. If so (and I would argue the point), Nashville, like Fleetwood Mac's Rumours, is MOR with a touch of genius.
Despite the consistent feel, each track has its own identity that blossoms with every listen (another hallmark of a great album). As mentioned in other reviews, the songs span a range of styles with strong melody cutting through them all.
The nostalgic "Side A / Side B" track listing is a nice touch and the album's length - just ten well crafted songs - is perfect, a throwback to times when tedious seventeen-plus track albums were beyond the reach of technology.
The album is a gem - captivating, uplifting and most of all lovely.

What a fantastic album! Following in the footsteps of the brilliant 1972, I'd expected to be disappointed by a less inspired follow-up. How wrong can you be! Nashville takes everything from 1972 and cranks up the quality an extra notch or two. While the previous album contained 10 uplifting and well-crafted pop songs, Nashville repeats the trick, but contains more heart-felt, moving songwriting. It achieves the perfect mix of sing-along, harmony-filled tracks such as Carolina, Winter in the Hamptons and It's the Nighttime, with utterly beautiful, uplifting, building anthems such as stand-out tracks Sad Eyes, Middle School Frown and My Love has Gone, songs with the ability to break your heart and put it back together in the space of five glorious minutes. Highlights aside, there really isn't a bad track on the album. If you fancy cheering yourself up and ushering in an early summer, Nashville is the album to take you there.

I knew nothing of Josh Rouse until I came across a track on an Uncut cover disc last year. On the strength of that I got hold of Nashville and have now lived with it for a year or so. I can now tell you that this is a brilliant album. Firstly the songs have great tunes. There isn't a bad track on here - and you will find yourself singing along. Lyrically there are some interesting ideas - `I sleep with the TV on - it's the only sound now love's gone' is such a great hook! Secondly this is a make you smile album - light, summery, and perfect for an afternoon in the garden. Thirdly the arrangements are interesting -it's well recorded and produced. The casual listener might dismiss this as MOR music and it's true this is not a country album. But if you like classic pop - you will love this. You might just put it into your all time classic albums list - I have!

I was apprehensive about buying this at first mostly because I was not all that impressed with Josh Rouse' previous album `1972' (2003). After reading reviews that described `Nashville' as the adult pop record of the year so far, I decided to buy it anyway. I must say that `Nashville' is essentially a continuation of where `1972' left off, yet I feel that this is much stronger than the previous record. What remains of the previous record is the same polished production and perfect playing with the same bouncy rhythm. The songs although they don't particularly stand from one another are of a rather higher standard in comparison to `1972'. It was always the honest song writing that I loved about Josh Rouse albums in the first place anyway and not the production but I must admit I prefer the more lo-fi production on `Dressed Up Like Nebraska' and `Under Cold Blue Stars'. Josh does manage to really create that unstoppable rhythm that made previous albums great but which I felt was slightly lacking on `1972'. Lyrically it's same old themes of love, shame and loneliness.

I've listened to `Nashville' about ten times now and I find that I'm enjoying this album much more than I expected to. `Nashville' is a blend of `Under Cold Blue Stars' (my personal favourite Josh Rouse album) and `1972'; if you liked both of them then you'll love this. This is a wonderful sugar coated pop record of a high calibre, which gives you the impression you listening to happy music when actually you're not. Excellent.

This is the third Josh Rouse Album I have bought and each one is an improvement on the last. He not only can write a good song he can sing effortlessly too. 1972 gave me one of my favourite songs in the piano lead perfectly constructed Flight Attendant. In Streetlights which is a contender for my track of the year and Sad Eyes he and producer Brad Jones have included string arrangements which give the songs more depth and should open up his Radio power which Its The Nightime has done. Don't be put off by the album title, I like country music but this is not like your Country norm fare. Its quite difficult to pigeon-hole Mr Rouse, he's not like Brad Paisley more like Jim Bryson. Only the final track of the 10 songs disappointed me hence the not quite perfect rating. If you haven't bought a Josh Rouse album suggest you start with this one and work backwards and if the Streetlights don't shine for you then ignore any other review written by this hack.
