    Another New World

    Josh Ritter is one of the greatest songwriters of this generation. Probably his most solid album since Animal Years (that doesn't mean Historical Conquests was anything less than great). Songs like "Lantern", "Rattling Locks", and "Another New World" remind us why we need to take him seriously.

    The first half of this record sounds as good if not better than anything he's ever done. Unfortunately I think the latter half dies a bit. It's still good but I do think he's front-loaded the album. Change of Time and The Curse are the obvious stand outs and would get on any album put out by any artist out there. It's more back to his "Golden Age" and "Animal Years" folky style than his more pop/folk effort "Historical Conquests". Definitely a slower paced and in my view less forced album than his last record. If you've not listened to anything by this guy yet your missing out. Expand

  1. Wordy troubadour's sixth and finest effort. [Sept. 2010, p. 118]
  2. The result is this quite sensational new album that not only purges the darkness, but marks the finest music he has made.
  3. The 'New Springsteen' comes of age.
