    i don't get it. this album doesn't elicit any emotional response. i find it incredibly boring and the lyrics are precious. i'll give it another few listens, but right now, i just see this as a mediocre disk lacking in personality.

    A nice general sound, but none of the material particularly moved me. There may well be deeper rewards buried in this album, but nothing drew me in to find them.

  1. Nashville validates the promise Rouse has exhibited since Dressed Up Like Nebraska, encompassing a gift for emotional detail and a fondness for simple, unadorned lyrics. It's an understated, impeccably played collection of heartfelt tunes about a time and place that can never be returned to.
  2. Somebody will really have to pull off a miracle to top Nashville as far as intelligent, honest and entertaining guitar pop goes in 2005. Or any other year.
