Josh Rouse - 1972
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail
Josh Rouse - 1972The Nashville-born singer-songwriter’s fourth release is a deliberately retro-sounding album steeped in mellow, early ’70s pop. The title track references Carole King and “Love Vibration” is an anti-hate anthem, while “Sunshine” preaches packing up the van and heading to the coast. But the album’s best numbers are the soulful “Come Back (Light Therapy)” and the autobiographical “Flight Attendant,” about the poignant struggles of a “pretty boy” growing up in redneck country. Well worth seeking out.
