Your Friendly Neighborhood Music Critic

About / Contact


Hi, I’m Josh Rosenberg and I write the Roseandblog. Posting my take on album reviews, articles, features, premieres, a podcast, and the weekly news, I started this site because I wanted to share my thoughts as honestly, yet as considerately as possible.

Most critics these days write their reviews by simply summarizing an album, sometimes not even discussing what was “bad” about them in fear of angering or losing some of their readership base for not praising their favorite artist.

That doesn’t happen here.

Being “the most honest voice in music criticism” means that I’m going to share my thoughts honestly, whether they’re flattering or not, because I’m not in this to pander. It’s just my opinion, and if you agree with me, cool! If you don’t, that’s cool too! I just hope you enjoy reading.

I’ll try and get back to you as soon as I can!
