He’s found a way to encapsulate all the dichotomies of life and make them work within the confines of a three-minute pop song.

No Ripcord

The longer the album stays in my CD player, the more I’m convinced this is one of Rouse’s best efforts. What keeps it from the top is the lack of musical surprises.


The Happiness Waltz is just business as usual for Josh Rouse – and what’s twee and cloying to one set of ears could well sound cosy and heart-warming to the next.
