 Josh Rouse: 1972 [2003] Shaking Through.net: Music: Review
A sense of longing, of being out of touch, permeates lyrics like "She was feelin' 1972" and a subsequent urgency to find "a way out of this hole".
Granted, nostalgia is a comfortable place for people looking to escape the pressures of the present tense, but Rouse wisely invests the song with a weariness that intimates that no matter how much one longs for the "good ol' days," such musing won't wholly cure one's ills.
It is, however, one of his most polished releases, offering colorful arrangements (particularly in its assured use of strings to accentuate the various emotions swirling about) and sturdily held together by a talented backing group.

 Amazon.com: 1972: Music: Josh Rouse   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Yet Rouse's spin on the era transcends simple nostalgia, as the lyrics aren't always as buoyant as the sunny musical interplay, with "1972," the psychedelic soul of "James," and the piano-driven "Slaveship" all suggesting a darker tinge within this world of lollipops and rainbows.
1972 is a lovely set of songs, with the kind of balance between a unity of theme and diversity of moods that confirm the power of albums, over the "immediate-gratification" glory of churning out singles.
What Rouse has done on the excellent, but not quite a classic "1972," is make a Josh Rouse record that sounds like it was recorded the year of his birth.

Like the Battle of the Bulge, the 1972 Easter Offensive in Vietnam has often been referred to as an "intelligence failure," mainly because it caught the United States and South Vietnam completely by surprise.
While most areas of South Vietnam encountered NVA ground force activity during the Easter Offensive of 1972, it was the northern-most portion of the country, the Quang Tri Province, which bore the initial and most severe brunt of the NVA's conventional ground campaign.
