Josh Ritter "The Historical Conquests of Josh Ritter" (2007)

By all rights, an album with a title so pretentious should not be any good.  It should be pompous and overwrought.  Somehow, this particular record is a lot of fun.  Great songwriting that is built upon, but not only in mimicry of, Boomer classics like Dylan et al.  Mr Ritter should be much more popular than he is.
