Editorial Reviews

Recorded over two nights in Vicar Street, Dublin, Ireland earlier in 2006, 'In The Dark' is a double CD / DVD set that captured Idaho born singer Josh Ritter at a pivotal moment in his career. With four albums behind him (3 of them gold in Ireland), Josh broke out from cult artist in Ireland to a singer songwriter with a worldwide career. The live album features favorites from across his catalog. 'Kathleen,' 'Girl In The War,' 'Harrisburg,' 'Good Man,' 'Me & Jiggs,' 'Thin Blue Flame,' and many others. The DVD which accompanies the live album is so much more than your standard concert DVD. It's a movie which takes the listener on a journey with Josh. Again it features plenty of performances over two nights at Vicar Street as well as plenty of intimate interview footage with Josh and plenty of color and context around Dublin.

Great live set. If you're a fan you'll get what you expect with one of Josh's performances. If you're not a fan, well, time to listen.

I'm writing this more importantly to let you know this is PAL format, and will not play in a lot of the N America region DVD players. Just a heads up...

I love this album, especially the opening. If you like Ritter, this is a must have. (Now if I could just find the version of "Girl in the War" with Hilary Hahn, I'd be extremely happy.)

Josh Ritter is one of the most talented songwriters I've ever heard. I'm really happy to have collected every CD of his I've been able to find and look forward to hearing his future work.

I'm a big fan of Josh Ritter's songs and although his studio records are great, there's a bit of flatness to the sound, to my ear anyway. When I saw him play the first time and realized what a wonderful band he was playing with and how nicely they play off each other I was frankly a bit surprised. Big swinging rhythms, interesting dynamic shifts, lots of energy, lots of partly-tongue-in-cheek rocknroll fun had by all. The bass player's marvel of a handlebar mustache really doesn't translate on the studio records. Here it is. These are really good versions of familiar songs, but more than that you get a sense of what Ritter sounds like having fun in front of his band.

You can hear the smile Ritter sang through during this whole evening. It was a magical show. He was just starting to get his first big public attention and had, I think, just returned from the UK and this was apparently the biggest US show he'd ever played. He walked out on stage and just stood there squinting out into the lights grinning in near disbelief for a long time, bouncing around on his heels. He played with huge energy and gratitude and he got plenty back from the audience. I think you can hear that here.

I had the CD but gave it away to introduce my brother to a new act I enjoyed at a festival. I then bought the combo and was thrilled with Josh's performance. This DVD is a great concert show. All the songs are good and the commentary meaningful. I played "Thin Blue Flame" over and over.

Ritter's Historical Conquests album contained more let-it-all-hang-out rock-and-roll than his previous records, which came through in a rollickingly fun live show. Josh has always given fun live shows, with some high-energy songs (e.g., Lillian, Egypt), but the Historical Conquests tour had a higher proportion of such songs, with more electrified rock sound as well. I own a few live albums from previous tours but was wishing for a quality recording from the Historical Conquests era, and this captures the feel of being there in-person to the extent that a live recording can. The guitars are more gritty than on the studio album, you can hear the laughter in Josh's voice every now and then (just at how fun this performing thing seems to be for him), and you get the energy of an excited audience singing along. The two ballads are more stripped-down but also more raw and intense (especially The Temptation of Adam) than the original studio recordings. For those who had the pleasure of seeing the Historical Conquests tour, this album provides some re-living, and for those who didn't, this record will give a reasonably good idea of what it felt like to be there.

I discovered Josh totally by accident off one of those sample CD that came with I think my "Paste" magazine. I have been around the music business for over 40 years and am very hard to impress. Josh has done just that. He is a treasure of the UK thay should try to make it to the states. One of the songs on the DVD here "Wolves" has become one of my fave songs of all time. Listen to his sample cuts. You will be taken in.
