Early reviews of So Runs the World Away are hailing the album as another step forward in Ritter’s artistic evolution. NPR, which is currently streaming the album, says So Runs the World Away “doesn’t defy categorization so much as it creates its own. Ritter’s category lacks a name, but it has a sound, a vision and a sense of poetic determination that puts So Runs the World Away on a level reserved for records such as Bob Dylan’s Time Out of Mind, Tom Waits’ Rain Dogs and Simon & Garfunkel’s Bridge Over Troubled Water. … With startling detail, distinctive storytelling, compelling subject matter and astonishing musicianship, Ritter’s new album has reset the singer-songwriter bar.”
Paste magazine says “Josh Ritter hits a beautiful stride on his sixth album, a soulful combination of conversational folk ballads and powerful gut punches. He’s not the only one channeling the greats, but he does it better than almost anyone else today.”
