Best Album of 2015 To: Put On When Lamenting The End of an Era

First Bite: “Woman”

The slowburn and ultimately epic 8-minute first single and album opener shows a new side of City & Colour. Their familiar folk blues is flavored with a dash of psychedelic jam. Great albums have opening tracks that teach you how to listen to the album and leave you wanting more. Woman obliges by embodying the spirit of the album: It’s fuzzy, it’s electrifying, it’s romantic, like the first crack of lightning from a thunderstorm brewing in the middle of the desert.
