Editors’ Notes

Melancholy never sounded so melodious. With his fourth studio album under the City and Colour moniker, former Alexisonfire frontman Dallas Green hits his musical stride. As the title track opens, he croons in a handsome falsetto over a beautiful contrast of low, crumbling guitar distortion and warm pedal-steel notes that melt off the strings like butter. His lyrical talents have been noticeably honed here as well. Green waxes confessional passages with witty wordplay throughout The Hurry and the Harm. In the folky follower, “Harder Than Stone,” he sings: ”Walking underneath the dead moonlight/Without any great concern/For what I’ve missed or how many bridges I’ve burned.” The standout “Of Space and Time” builds on a haunting waltz that unfolds into a big, beautiful panoramic melody. “Commentators” is an equally catchy and well-crafted song with big bouncy hooks and introspective lyrics, wherein Green admits that he’d rather sing sweet melodies than pose as a revolutionary. In addition to the acoustic versions of two album cuts, the deluxe version offers a bonus track, the nostalgically lovelorn “The Way It Used to Be.”

Customer Reviews

Had a chance.

Had a chance to listen to Dallas perform this whole cd live in Los Angeles. Let me just tantalize you! This is the going to be the best yet!

Beautiful.

This album is impeccable. Dallas knows how this music is supposed to be written and his heart is fully reflected in this release. They kept the full band sound of 'Little Hell' but slowed it down. I always believe less is more and I have not one complaint about any of the 12 songs. Not one song from beggining to end causes me to lose interest, because there is so much character imposed in each individual song. It's everything I hoped it would be and exceeded my expectations in every way. 'The Hurry & the Harm' has made my heart full and it will be a sad future when Dallas no longer writes music. You need not hesitate to get this album.

Cannot wait!!!

Haven't even heard but one song off this upcoming album yet but I guarantee its 10 stars. Dallas is my idol and the reason I started singing and what I base my musical style off of. So glad this new album is dropping so soon. Thank you for changing my life Dallas. ALL of your words speak to me. It's like you know me. Keep the amazing music coming!!
