The November Acoustic CD of Month is
Since the beginning of his career, Josh Ritter has been on our radar at WNRN, but no project has caught my attention more than this new one. Album number 8, Sermon on the Rocks, also represents a sharp contrast from the last project that was quieter and filled with the emotions of the break up of his marriage. This new project is upbeat, full of vivid characters, and written in a way that shows his obvious love of language. The single, Getting Ready to Get Down, has some clear biblical references. There are more sprinkled through out the album, but that track throws them out fast and furious!
