    After listening to this album extensively, I still put it on almost everyday. I am absolutely in love with this record. Every song is still as enjoyable now as it was when the album was released.

    It's been amazing to hear all of Dallas Green's work and seeing how this man has evolved as a musician, songwriter, and singer. Going from purely acoustic songs in his first solo album "Sometimes", to adding a variety of instruments in "Bring Me Your Love", and finally we are introduced to "Little Hell" which contains a bit of everything. "Little Hell" contains the same acoustic guitar songs that he is known for, intertwined with some faster paced folk rock songs that make you want to jump and dance, rather than cry. It truly is a deep album, full of meaningful lyrics about family, lovers, and personal insecurities. "Little Hell" is a treat for anyone looking for a bit of everything. Expand

    A completely unique, original, semi-acoustic album from Canadian wunderkind Dallas Green. He's not afraid to step outside of the box and try something a bit different from his previous records. If "Bring Me Your Love" is a classic, (it is), then "Little Hell" is an instant classic. Great, memorable music.

    The 3rd album of City and Colour is an amazing journey! It's definitely a different style than the first two albums, "Sometimes" and "Bring Me Your Love"- both of which are completely acoustic. "Little Hell", involving electric guitars, is another great album of Dallas, showing that he's experimenting with new things, and trying different styles.

    All in all, I highly recommend listening
    to this masterpiece! Expand

    On Bring Me Your Love Dallas Green laments, pines, and celebrates loves both won and lost, employing a dusky, electrified patina of old and new country with a tinge of soul that's miles (sonically) from his work with the post-hardcore outfit Alexisonfire.

    The heart- wrenching emotion is credible and convincing, even though the uneasy undercurrents find Green's brand of the blues seem somewhat tenuous at times. Nevertheless, at this point in the trajectory, City & Colour manages to provide a pleasing musical melange.
