    On The Hurry and The Harm, everything feels much more carefully crafted and well-thought-out than on some of his previous releases, so that every instrument has a very specific, and important, reason for being included.

    It's as beautifully patient and thoughtful as anything else in Dallas green's expanding catalog, while carrying the same sort of modest insecurity and self-doubt that's made the project so warm and personable. [Jul 2013, p.98]
  3. As has always been the case with City and Colour, this record is at its best when it forgoes sonic evolution for the bare bones simplicity of human emotion and the warm, gentle wash of pleasant nostalgia.

    While imperfect, The Hurry and the Harm is a collection of songs still lightyears ahead of most popular artists played on both Canadian and American airwaves.

    It's all too handsomely sterile to truly love. [Jul 2013, p.96]

    His greatest strength is his storytelling: lyrics are never expected or trite, not annoyingly inscrutable but just obscure enough to be intriguing.

    What emerges from the new City And Colour album, then, is the sound of a man with frailties who makes sense of it all through song. [1 Jun 2013, p.54]
