All Delighted People is some of the most ambitious music that Sufjan has released to date.
Songs For Christmas
Songs For Christmas not only reveals Sufjan’s growth as a songwriter, its a deeply moving and reverent treatment of Christmas music.
Illinois is just as accomplished, fully-realized, involving, and disarming as its predecessor.
With his humility and subtlety, Stevens gets it right where so much of the ‘praise and worship’ music out there gets it so very wrong so much of the time.
I’ll wager that even after you’ve listened to Michigan countless times, you’ll still hear some new sound or fragment that makes it seem new all over again.
Enjoy Your Rabbit
Sufjan Stevens displays a real knack for taking his arsenal of abstract sounds and letting them go wild without damaging his music’s integrity.
