Editorial Reviews

2011 release, the third solo album from Canadian singer/songwriter Dallas Green AKA City & Colour. Alternately sparse and inviting, intense and delicate, Little Hell shows music fans another side of Green's incredible songwriting skills, and features some of his finest songs to date. Little Hell was recorded earlier this winter at Catherine North Studios in Hamilton, ON with producer/engineer/mixer Alex Newport (At The Drive-In, Mars Volta, Death Cab For Cutie).

5.0 out of 5 stars Devil's Advocate July 29, 2011
By Rachel
Format:MP3 Music
It is generally difficult to determine the inspiration behind a band's choice of name. However, when the lead singer's given name is shared with that of a metropolitan city, and his surname is visually represented in the refracted rays of a prism, City and Colour may have seemed like an uninspired choice. Consequently, it may initially seem that there is little mystery to Canadian-born singer, Dallas Green. However, although Dallas was not at ease with the concept of seeing his true name on album covers, he did not shy away from drawing attention to the personal details of his intriguing life story. As the album title implies, Little Hell weaves a tale of a difficult upbringing, as well as the continued trials of adulthood. He relives the harrowing experiences of his formative years--a time frought with constant struggles to comprehend his sister's mental illness, as well as coexisting family discord.

Throughout the deeply layered tracks, Green gently croons about heavy topics in a soulful and gorgeous tone, sounding very much like counterparts Elliot Smith and Bon Iver. Like them, he has used lyricism and breathtaking melody as a means of distancing himself from the contrasting ugliness of the inner demons that compete for his attention. It's gloomy and pensive, while also flooded with powerful undercurrents of strength and endurance, which prevent the album from crossing over the line into the realm of self-pity. Green exposes flaws and imperfections, while carefully maintaining the equilibrium between reverence and honesty. The resulting product is somewhat shy of a complete purge, while still refusing to tip-toe around topics that are widely considered to be aversive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get this album. You will not regret it. June 13, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
Dallas Green pours out his heart on this album. His talent is shown through his heart-felt lyrics, outstanding vocals, and the overall composition of the songs. You will see a different side to his life. He sings about his wife's night terrors, his sister's mental health complications, his own assessment of his strengths and weaknesses in relation to his parents. My favourites include Fragile Bird, Little Hell, Hope for Now, O Sister, Grand Optimist, Silver and Gold... okay pretty much every song blows my mind.

4.0 out of 5 stars Heavy June 15, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
If Little Hell chronicles the joy, confusion, and hopelessness that follows us, the album's first track, "We Found Each Other in the Dark," is the hope and promises which begin new love. The song, romantic and waltzy, is a great opener. "The Grand Optimist" blends thoughtful lyrics with a staccato strum. "Little Hell" continues the folk confessional and leads into lead single "Fragile Bird," which is pure blues-rock. "Northern Wind," with it's sparse strings and light production is reminiscent of the sound for which Dallas Green is known and loved. With similar themes and narrative, "O' Sister" may be a sister song to "Fragile Bird." "Hope For Now" is a stunning closer. " Dallas Green sings, "How can I instill such hope, but be left with none of my own? What if could sing just one song and if might save somebody's life."

Little Hell is complex, heartfelt, and heavy. It is full of vivid imagery and interesting arrangements. While possibly too heavy for an everyday listen, this album is the perfect companion for those dark times.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really solid rock album. June 9, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The music and lyrics are some of the best by any artist out there today. It's not a "jammin" album by any means, but a really good thought provoking lonesome road trip sort of album.

4.0 out of 5 stars City and Colour - The devil does have the best tunes August 4, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
Dallas Green continues on his new album "Little Hell" to emphasise the "Yin and Yang" between his solo work with its huge debt to fellow Canadian Neil Young quieter moments and that of his often ferociously noisy post hardcore band Alexisonfire. This is the third album Green has released under the "City and Colour" moniker and it allows him to draw out those moments in Alexisonfire songs like "Born and Raised" where his genuinely melodic vocals act as a counterpoint to George Petits "raw shouty" approach. It increasingly begs the question whether Green is doing an "Elliot Smith"? You will recall that the later was one of the mainstays of the band Heatmiser when his own more important, if brief, solo career took off. Alexisonfire are a good band even though they do often sound a tad "nu metal" but Dallas Green seems to be transcending the group and "Little Hell" is his finest work to date.

Green's pop sensibilities are all over this album kicking off with the lovely countryish ballad "We found each other in the dark" which is about as far from Alexisonfire music as it can be. On the second track "Natural disaster" the debt is to singers like Andrew Bird is clear with a nice acoustics combining alongside. a deceptively simple melody which grows upon each listen. The song "Fragile Bird" is a true standout and check out the music blogs and you will find that it has been remixed in a variety of styles including dubstep and is a fine piece of songwriting This reviewers favourite is the double pairing of the plaintive "Northern Wind" with the equally dark "Oh sister" where Green is able to demonstrate his great singing voice and a growing maturity in songwriting.
