Dallas Green is easily the greatest singer - songwriter since Neil Young. The 'best' albums are always ones that have been around for a while and stood the test of time - so I can't say it yet ... but I can say that this album will be as good in 20 years as it is now.
I was attracted to his debut album Sometimes, purely because he was a member of Alexisonfire, and it was such a good album.
Since then, Dallas has really found his sound; and it is such a unique and brilliant one at that. Adding harmonicas and tambourines to his acoustic sound give it a folk feel, and with his songwriting experiences both from his time in Alexisonfire and his debut City & Colour album, he has really established a style that sounds rounded and complete.
Every song on this album is beautiful, and you can tell that Dallas has poured himself into it, my personal favourites being Body In A Box and What Makes A Man.
Every note played by a harmonica, beat on a tambourine, guest vocal or chord on a guitar sounds like it should be there. Nothing is over or under-used and as a result this album is nothing short of perfection.
Get this album if you are a fan of folk music, solo songwriters, heavy metal, rap ... it is so rare to find an album that I genuinely don't think a single person wouldn't like. So go ahead, it really is worth it.
