Idaho-bred singer/songwriter Josh Ritter's V2 Records debut follows in the footsteps of 2003's Hello Starling only in instrumentation. While he retains his literate tongue and expressive voice, there is far less humor on Animal Years than on his previous two outings. Producer Brian Deck (Iron & Wine, Modest Mouse) keeps Animal Years intimate but transient, like a circus train crawling through a small town on a busy Saturday afternoon
Josh Ritter's deluxe double-album re-issue of The Animal Years, the best-selling title in Josh's catalog! Like Golden Age Of Radio and Hello Starling, The Animal Years has been drastically improved. The updated version now includes a BONUS cd, featuring Josh performing the ENTIRE ALBUM solo acoustic, plus four LIVE b-sides, and two videos. The acoustic album was recorded for this re-issue in 2008, and these recordings have not been previously released. Fans of Josh treasure the acoustic versions of his songs because they often provide a vastly different perspective on the music.
