We gave it a B

The earnest melancholy and winsome melodies of Nashville transplant Josh Rouse’s second album, Home, recall both Duncan Sheik and Ron Sexsmith. Inventive arrangements — a hint of cello, trombone, and vibes in ”Marvin Gaye,” for instance — help disguise the songs’ sameness, while power-packed drumming energizes the acoustic instruments. Home may not jump-start your next party, but it’ll provide some consolation should you find yourself alone when the dancing’s done. B
