Amoeba Review

Dallas Green (City and Color) can do no wrong in my book...


For his fifth album as City and Colour, Canadian artist Dallas Green updates his folk-rock sound with sophisticated pop touches. The atmospheric “Woman” opens the album on an epic note, as Green sings “my love is neverending” over airy synthesizers and guitars and drums that build from swells into crashes, suggest Bon Iver jamming with Radiohead’s guitar gear. The gentle, nighttime pulse of “Northern Blues” takes its cues from the best tunes by ’80s artists like Phil Collins and Peter Gabriel, a mature blues-pop song that’s easily listenable yet intriguing. The Morricone-tinged title track is a swooning ballad that ranks among his best, drawing inspiration from Jeff Buckley for a stirring showcase of Green’s romantic croon. And to keep things from feeling too sleepy, Green plugs in once and rocks out once in a while, as on the rollicking “Wasted Love,” without diverging too far from his signature sound to keep everything tied together nicely. It can be a bummer when a singer enters his “mature phase,” but Green does so in the best way possible on If I Should Go Before You, classing up his music without losing the emotional pull that made him so appealing to begin with.
