- Summary: The singer-songwriter follows his acclaimed effort '1972' with another album produced by Brad Jones. Don't be fooled by the title: it's not a country album, but rather, a farewell to the city Rouse has called home for the past decade (before moving to Spain).
- Record Label: Rykodisc
- Genre(s): Indie, Rock, Singer-Songwriter

Where artists such as Elliott Smith or Jeff Tweedy manage to express their unique creative personalities while they wield the traditional tools of the trade, Rouse's songwriting lacks a similar sense of urgency or drama, too often stumbling into amazingly trite cliches. [#9]
