[SOFT ROCKIN’ IT] It’s unfortunate the worst times in a musician’s life tend to give way to the best albums—an ironic circumstance that fans of Neil Young, Wilco and Josh Rouse know all too well. The latter singer-songwriter’s 2004 folk-pop album, Nashville, is a perfect example of love and life gone awry, captured in 10 nostalgic tracks that spin a lush web of acoustic guitar, waning harmonica and light percussion, coyly nodding to the warm pop undercurrents of the early ’80s. His latest release, The Happiness Waltz, might lean more toward ’70s saccharine soft rock, but the blissful keys still beam alongside Rouse’s breezy, jazzy vocals and polished pop inflections.
