The third album from singer/songwriter Dallas Green is the best one so far. He switches up his usual acoustic/indie style with a few tracks containing electric guitar. He has one of the most beautiful, heart-felt voices ever. When he sings, it hits your core and could possibly bring you to tears with the power of his lyrics. For me, this is the best album of the year and if you checkout any of my recommendations, let it be this one. It will not disappoint.
City and Colour—the alias for Alexisonfire’s singer Dallas Green’s solo project—centers again on his acoustic guitar and sweet uncoiled alt-countryish thoughts, but it’s also so much more. Those fingers are hitting the “right” notes up and down the neck; they are tuned to the deeper thing the Ontario native is trying communicate. Standout tracks are “Silver and Gold,” with its deadened profound sense, and “O’ Sister” which is a cross between Jeff Buckley and Dan Auerbach, with Green’s cold soaring vocal making the most of the dire questions he’s putting out there. This is his best album to date.
