    It´s more of the same, and since it´s Josh we´re talking about... More of the same it´s always good, really good.
    It is once again a great work coming from a great songwriter.

    The music appears deceptively simple and unabashedly blithe at times, but regardless, the emotional undercurrent clearly comes through.

    The Happiness Waltz is a big contender for Rouse’s best work, though fans will always point to varying favorites.

    The melodies running through City People, City Things and Julie, with their hints of Paul Simon at his most wistful, are the measure of anything from Rouse's 2002 purple patch. The rest is charming if sometimes sugar-sweet and a little too inoffensive. [May 2013, p.109]
