Final Thoughts:

City And Colour is one of those staple bands that most Canadians are familiar with, they’re always on the radio, at least four of your friends are obsessed with them, and they are always coming to a city near you. I love this band, they make consistently great music, catchy and emotional, it was easy to get into them after being in love with Death Cab For Cutie. If I Should Go Before You is more of the same, great music to add to their already awesome collection. Not their best work (the opening song Women got under my skin pretty fast, not a great way to start the album) but still lots of fun, glad to have it a part of my collection.
