Very reminincent of early Springsteen with his unperfect but endearing voice, his raw passion, and superb song writing this guy is going far! I dare anyone to listen to "Kathleen" and not be humming before the end of the song and then replaying it to learn all the words. The song promises to stay in your head and heart long after you've listend to the CD!
If you get a chance to see him perform live don't walk but RUN to stand in line to see him My wife and I both love Josh Ritter's music and have been lucky enough to have seen him in concert twice this year, once with a large band to accompany him and once on his accoustics tour. What makes this album particularly appealing to me, therefore, is the 2d disc with the recordings of the concert versions of several of his better songs. We saw Josh Ritter in concert with John Prine and loved his music.
Ordered this CD with the intention of eventually purchasing all his work. VERY pleased with the disc 2 discs and actually prefer the add'l acoustic version to the other disc. We will continue to order his cd's from Amazon. Always prompt and accurate shipping. Josh Ritter is an outstanding poet and musician - his lyrics are musical in themselves and, when combined with his music, they take you on a journey. All his songs are stories - listening to his selections is like musical short stories on audio!
Outstanding double CD set - one is studio version and the other is acoustic - I don;t know which one I like better:. I use Pandora to listen to music and Josh Ritter grew on me. I bought this first because of the rating other submitted. I love the music, and bought another. Help Learn to edit Community portal Recent changes Upload file. Download as PDF Printable version.

Ritter does it again, with great songwriting and overall fantastic tunes. The live tracks are good, but I don't think they do him justice. I have seen Josh live with his band and solo. Both should be included for live tracks. The in betweens only somewhat capture his natural interaction with the audience. The funny thing is after all the times I've seen Josh is that no matter how successful he becomes, he always seems genuinely overwhelmed that people love his music and come out in droves for his shows.
That totally adds to his on stage persona. This should have been his breakout album, but we're hoping North America will take better notice with the next one and give Josh his due. One person found this helpful. Very reminincent of early Springsteen with his unperfect but endearing voice, his raw passion, and superb song writing this guy is going far!

General Comment Bone, like skeleton, that which he speaks of is the skeleton or the frame of all songs, it is what music is made of General Comment I was at a Josh Ritter gig where he expllained the thinking behind the song.
The idea comes from how until the 19th century ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs had remained indescipherable for thousands of years until Jean-Francois Champollion through his work escentially found a key to understanding them all. Ritter pondered with the fanciful idea that every musical note ever composed in time might have a key that releases the meaning of every song in the same way that Champollion's key released the hidden meaning of hieroglyphs.
Ladies and gentlemen, songmeanings. General Comment he said in a British interview back in that the song came from a dream about a type of musical Rosetta Stone- I guess he was thinking about a kind of stone where music stems from- that explains the weird trippy disconnect and all the random references.Jan 19, · Some of the most beautiful music, I have ever heard.
