Product Description

BRING ME YOUR LOVE

Amazon.com

Bring Me Your Love is whisper-soft yet lush, with minimal production and warm acoustic instruments. Opening with the our-love-is-gonna-go-wrong song "Forgive Me," Dallas Green (Alexisonfire) aches his way through lyrics like "I’ve been known to fall in love/but sometimes love just is not enough/and my heart will stray." The lead track, a one-night-stand ode entitled "Confessions" has a similar lyrical pain, with a gorgeous lap steel guitar and quiet bluesy melody that would be a perfect fit for a mournful, soulful southern blues singer. The most catchy and compelling song on the disc may well be the most lyrically Morrissey-esque, a slightly uptempo, passionate number entitled, "Sleeping Sickness" where Green sings, "with all the worries that occupy the back of my mind, could it be, this misery will suffice?" That track gets even more powerful when Tragically Hip frontman Gord Downie adds co-vocals to the mix. All in all, this release is a sonic 180 degrees away from Green's screamo Alexisonfire creations, but remains, arguably, the stronger and more powerful of the two projects. --Denise Sheppard

He has a great voice and his music is amazing!
Lindsey Marie Schraeder
It may sound like a word lacking description but it is the best word I can use to describe the guitar and the lyrics on the album.
Jeremiah L. Olson
It's one of those albums that I have to listen to, start to finish, every time.

Dallas Green brings so much to the table. His already amazing voice has only gotten better. It's also changed a little bit, it has a much folkier touch this record than the last, and it goes hand in hand with the songs. The added harmonica and banjo in a few songs could have gone so wrong, but come out so right.

To be honest, I only love about half the songs, both those 6 or 7 songs are worth the price of 6 or 7 albums. The other songs aren't terrible or even bad, they're simply not up to par with the rest. The melodies, feelings, and all around musical prowess Mr. Green delivers on this album are amazing.

Astoundingly catchy stuff for such melancholy (for the most part) music.
The beginning two songs and ending two songs are the only thing that brings this album down from a five.

Really great record, honest lyrics that convey depth and emotion, and brilliantly written music. His voice is beautiful.

I stumbled across Dallas Green's (aka City and Colour) first album while in the midst of a separation that ended in divorce. The melancholy tone and simple beauty of the songs struck me and that album-- "Sometimes"-- quickly became part of my music rotation. After the bitterness of the divorce ended, I still found myself listening to that first album because it was good in its own right.

Now, having listened to Green's new album, I can safely say that this album will be in heavy rotation as well. Green has branched out from his previous album (which was mostly just him and his guitar) to include a backing band (or at least percussion in some cases) or backup vocalists in some of the songs-- and it works very well in way that is reminiscent of Iron and Wine. He also incorporates folk influences, such as a banjo, and makes them work very well.

I had previously heard the first two tracks on City and Colour's live album, and "Confessions" was very good. So good that when I heard this new album was going to be released I hoped a studio version would be included, and I wasn't let down.

I have to say, though, for me the standout track is "Body in a Box." This song is not only beautiful but thought-provoking as well.

With two amazing albums under his belt, I can only hope that Dallas Green will continue to do what he does so very well.

I've been a big fan of Alexisonfire for a number of years. When Dallas Green did this side project I was eager to hear it. It's completely different from AOF.

In most cases, when an artist comes out with a second album, it's never quite as good as the first one. This is not the case here. Bring Me Your Love is amazing. This is the sort of CD you listen to with a bottle of your favorite "beverage" and listen to every word and every last note. It makes you think about life, love, and the desire to find what we're all looking for.

Support Dallas Green, if you only have enough cash for one of his two CDs, make it this one. You will not be disappointed.

My favorite tracks:
Death of Me
Sleeping Sickness
Waiting
The Girl
As Much As I Ever Could

*as stated before, the entire CD is amazing.

If you want real laid back, mellow, great acoustic music, look no further than Dallas Green, AKA City and Colour. The Canadian folk-meets-alternative musician creates an entire album of mellow songs, and they're ALL amazing.

BEST TRACKS:
-Body in A Box
-Confessions
-Forgive Me
-Sleeping Sickness
-What Makes A Man

I am seeing him on May 28th at the Jubilee Auditorium. I have seen him live when he was in Alexisonfire, and that was an amazing show (If you're into punk, check out Alexisonfire, they rock as much as Dallas alone). Granted, this is gonna be an amazing concert.

If you're looking for something different, then buy this NOW!!! What are you waiting for?

This CD is just as good as dallas' first effort, which is saying something. This is music with real emotion, not a kid in the tightest jeans possible squeaking about his diary. This album and his last are in a league of their own.

in addition he adds more folk influence here, sort of reminiscent of connor oberst.definately buy this album for whatever theyre selling it for and support one of the only true artists left in the scene.

Having listened to "Sometimes" by City and Colour(Dallas Green) over and over, I was eagerly awaiting the release of his next solo project. When "Bring Me Your Love" arrived, I was definately not disappointed. For those that listened to his debut solo effort, "BMYL" may come across as a bit of a different sound, one with a bit more folk-ish vibe to it. What remains constant though, regardless of the music stylings, is Dallas Green's fantastic, melodious voice. Such a bright contrast to his Alexisonfire music, and a welcome change. "Bring Me Your Love" is a further extension of "Sometimes" that lets Green's vocals shine as the primary trait in every song. The strongest tracks IMO are:

#1) Sleeping Sickness - Green teams with Tragically Hip frontman Gord Downie to produce a masterpiece here. The vocal contrast makes the song shine.

#2) Constant Knot - Dallas Green and a guitar, great music in its simplest form

#3) What Makes a Man? - Poignant reflection on life.

All of the tracks are fantastic, and any fan of music in its simplest form will enjoy the sophomore solo effort from Dallas Green
