Honestly, I always found Sometimes to be the weakest. Unpopular opinion time. That said, I love all of his music and hopefully, the song in the Making of Little Hell video that was never released is released here.

Yeah, me as well. I'd much sooner listen to live performances of most of those songs.
Agreed. When I saw him live, they sounded miles better than the studio tracks. I've always thought Sometimes's production is really cold and bland, even though the songs are great. For me, Little Hell was what I related to the most, but everyone has their preferences.

Just like Alexisonfire, Dallas' songwriting has gotten progressively better with every album release. Does that mean you should enjoy Little Hell a lot more than Bring Me Your Love or Sometimes ? No.

I'm going to paraphrase (I actually think it was Dallas himself who said it best), but sometimes people are at a particular place in their lives emotionally where they can relate to an artist's music more and create deep connections to songs which essentially plants a seed for future nostalgic unity between person and song. However, had that album come out a year sooner or later, or had the person been at a different state in their lives while listening, it could have impacted them more or less, depending on where their head was at.

I might admit Bring Me Your Love is my favourite City and Colour album, but there's no question his best work is Little Hell.

Also, for those who think he should "go back to acoustic." He hasn't been doing acoustic-only albums since his original demos leaked (when the band was just him under his own name, before City and Colour existed). Listen to Sometimes again and pay attention to the amount of songs using the full band -- they're definitely there, just not as obvious as his latest two releases.
^this. All of this.
