good, but why do idiots compare to Dylan!!!

rtistik_1

great artist in his own, needs no comparison, i think he also has a voice like Eddie Vetter but who gives a shart. Mason Jennings has a voice more like Bob Dylan, and mason is great too.

Sooopa!!!!

Brings to mind Chris Smithers, Ryan Adams, yeah Dylan, Steve Forbert,Leonard Cohen but HE is an excellent listen on his own. Come to think of it, maybe I'll burn a mix with all these guys and maybe throw in some Neko too.

SEE THIS MAN LIVE!

I have never seen a person more in LOVE with his job...and his job was to entertain andthat he did well. His band was talented and I have never seen a more ebuliient performer. For all those at the Troy Music Hall I can say that they are glad they went out on a wintry night to have their cockles warmed.

Why compare

APE

What you have here a unique and singular voice with a salience and import to now with a nostalgia or saude to break your human heart.

the new Bob Dylan

musicmoggy

A substantial acoustic singer / song writer category collection. Right from the opening chords songs such 'Harrisburg' and 'Anne' ring of Bob Dylan. The impersonation is done so well it's almost comforting. In places his does Dylan better than Dylan and Reed better than Reed. Subtle melodies prevail with the occasional production trick sneaked in. This is my first Ritter acquisition but not likely my last.

They Say All Music Guide

Few young singer/songwriters have quite so quickly won the sort of acclaim that Idaho-born Josh Ritter gained with his first self-released album, which won rave reviews, earned him slots opening for Bob Dylan, and made him a minor celebrity in Ireland, where he’s already headlined several tours. Ritter’s second disc (and first nationally released album), Golden Age of Radio, makes it clear that his sudden success is well deserved, and based on genuine talent. Ritter’s moody, evocative songs seems to reside in a middle ground between Richard Buckner and Ryan Adams, but without suggesting he’s lifted anything from either of those performers; his quiet but assured vocals and carefully drawn verbal images on numbers like “Come and Find Me” and “Lawrence, KS” are the work of a writer far more mature than his years would suggest, while the more up-tempo numbers with his band (especially “Me & Jiggs” and “Golden Age of Radio”) have a scrappy enthusiasm that suggest early Whiskeytown, without their overbearing arrogance. As both as writer and a performer, Ritter displays a modesty that’s at once winning and just a bit of a drawback; a few of the acoustic numbers are just a shade too spare for their own good, and he works well enough with a band that it’s hard not to wish that they’d be willing to put a little more of their weight behind the arrangements. But the best moments on Golden Age of Radio are truly splendid, and if the album suggests that Josh Ritter is still learning the ropes, what he knows already is more than many artists will ever figure out. Great stuff. – Mark Deming
