    He still produces beautiful albums of impeccable tone and fine songs. [Dec 2011, p.96]

    If last year's Spanish El Turista was Josh Rouse embracing his new European home with a vengeance, this time around he's deployed his resources with more subtlety and made a better record. [Nov. 2011, p. 140]

    Throughout, this is gorgeous; every tune swelters in a setting sun, his voice honeyed in harmonies. Essential.

    These songs never hit their mark as a result, aiming for the relaxed pitch of an afternoon siesta and often sounding closer to a snoozefest instead.

    Long Vacations isn't a bad album per se (Rouse is too gifted a songwriter to make a genuinely bad album), but it has the sound of an uninspired one.
