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

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 bought this cd shortly after the death of a family member. It was unexpected and hurt more than I'm comfortable admitting. There's two songs on the cd that really sum up how I felt about my loss and the eventuality that I too will die someday. Body in a Box and The Death of Me really touch me every time I listen to them. All the songs on the cd speak to me in some way and even thought I know that Dallas Green is writing from his own experiences it is reassuring to know that others feel the same way I do. I ended up buying four of his cds and I was not disappointed in any of them. Dallas is a very talented singer songwriter.

I have wanted this album for a while but put off purchasing it for stupid reasons. So I was extremely excited when I saw it was the deal of the day. I enjoy Alexisonfire but would not say I am a huge fan. However, I think it is impossible to compare Alexisonfire to City and Coulour eventhough they have the same singer. If there is someone even relatively close to compare this to I would say it has to be Dustin Kensrue but that is a little of a stretch. The first word that comes to my mind when I listen to this album is crisp. 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. The opening guitar on Forgive Me just drew me in. I listened intently from there excited about the sounds and lyrics I would hear but not being concerned if I missed something because I knew instantly this would be an album I would quickly return to. Every song on this album is a beauty but I quickly grew attached to The Death of Me. As I listen to this again as I write this review, I think it is difficult to even calim a favorite song as they are all great. The harmonica at the beginning of Body in a Box is also an amazing introduction to a great song. Overall, I would recommend this to just about anyone. It is a mellow album, with great lyrics.

Great CD. I bought "The Hurry and the Harm" CD first and then had to get this one. I will probably buy any others. I really love his music, his voice, the lyrics (some quite melancholy) everything about the CD. Buy it. You won't regret it.

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.
