Reseña de álbum

The Historical Conquests of Josh Ritter, despite its lofty title, does not come with a four-paneled foldout map with a bejeweled compass rose, nor does it feature the art of Roger Dean or the keyboard theatrics of Rick Wakeman. Instead, Ritter's fifth foray into full-length album land is loaded with walls of electric guitars, waves of brass, ebbing tides of strings, and enough colorful analogies both historical and biblical to ignite a thousand cigars and refill an equally impressive number of brandy snifters. Listeners looking for a sequel to 2006's beautiful, bittersweet, contemplative (and primarily acoustic) Animal Years will either need to board another train or realign their senses, as Ritter has made the rowdiest record of his career. On first listen, the Idaho-born singer/songwriter's Historical Conquests is a dense bunch, both lyrically and musically, but further spins reveal a carousel of folk-rock splendor that echoes everyone from Springsteen to Ron Sexsmith to Summerteeth-era Wilco. Opener "To the Dogs or Whoever," with its motor-mouthed emissions of love cloaked in the mythology of Joan of Arc, rants and raves for a mere three minutes, but by the time he catches his breath on the last refrain of "I thought I heard somebody calling in the dark," it's hard not to feel like you've spent the whole time in the "belly of that whale" with him. Things don't slow down from there, with the Spoon-inspired rocker "Mind's Eye" and the "roll the credits" crowd-pleaser "Right Moves" providing a one-two punch that makes the gorgeous "Temptation of Adam," with its elegiac horn arrangement and apocalyptic backdrop a welcome respite. It's diverse for sure, but the melodies are born of familiar glue. "Heart Still Beating" and "Wait for Love" will please fans of the last record and the Johnny Cash freight-train rumble of "Next to the Last Romantic" will light up even the most solemn heartland drive home, but they revel in the "hummable" Tin Pan Alley warmth of Hank Williams and early Tom Waits. Historical Conquests is above all a fun record. It's got all of the heartache, acute observation, and crushing truth that fans are used to, but it never preaches without a wink and, most importantly, sounds as good blisteringly loud as it does drifting out of a clock radio in the garage.

He wrote, he sang, he conqured

Josh Ritter has put together a great CD and has truely outdone himself with this one. It is more up to beat then his preivious ones and has it's own certain chrisma. songs such as "To The Dogs or Whoever" "Right Moves" and "Rumors" all are faster and have more energy than previous songs witch in my oppinion is a great thing for any artist. A Great CD for a Great Price, do yourself a favor and take in this amaZing CD.

Amazing songwriter and wonderful human being

Josh has the amazing ability to be playful and fun and witty in a song, and then turn around and be introspective and thoughtful and strike you to your very soul in the next song. I first bought "Animal Years" on a fluke and loved it. Historical Conquests is overall more upbeat and playful, but there's also songs like "The Temptation of Adam" that could be a novel in itself. There is so much depth in all that he does, whatever the mood. I've now seen him live three times, and highly recommend his shows. You truly come away with a feeling that you've just spent a few hours with a good friend who happens to be a very talented artist, and he's just shared some of the mystery and wonder of life with you. In my opinion, there is no finer musician out there today.

$8 is a great deal for an incredible record - they don't get better than Josh Ritter

This amazing album is $8 on iTunes. That is a steal. Josh Ritter is without a doubt one of the best artists in the business, and this record is one incredible romp. Josh is a brilliant lyricist, and his songwriting skills shine on tracks like "Open Doors" and "The Temptation of Adam." Historical Conquests is Josh's most fun album to date, and there's no way you can hear songs like "To the Dogs or Whoever" or "Real Long Distance" without a smile on your face and a bounce in your step. Buying this album is one of the best things you can do for only $8 (!!!), and there's no reason for you to pass it up. As others have said, catch Josh live if you can--you'll be a fan for life. :) Truly, Josh Ritter is a class act. He's one of the most refreshing artists currently working in the music industry. If you're looking for true talent and passion, look no further than Josh Ritter. I can't recommend this highly enough.
