    listening to the new album for like the fifth time. could be a real important album for someone currently experiencing depression or loss but i can't get too into it on an emotional level myself. every vocal is double-tracked & kinda hazy, which goes a lil too far past presenting a united sound and starts to feel monotonous. reminds me of some of the bummer tunes from the Illinois outtakes album...one song is pretty much a rewrite of John Wayne Gacy Jr. i consider this a lesser album than his previous one. wish he would do something a lil more ebullient again at this point.

    tl;dr the new Sufjan is ok but i can't vibe with it 2 hard but i will listen 2 it more just in case

    I absolutely love it, but I'm a huge Elliott Smith fan, and it reminds me a ton of his stuff.

    i would give it a 7. still enjoyable 2 me as a huge suf fan, but i don't think it's gonna end up in his top 5 albums by the time his career is over. if we're ranking right now...

    1) Age of Adz
    2) Illinois
    3) Michigan
    4) Carrie & Lowell/Seven Swans toss-up?


    it's still dope just not DOPE dope

    I read somewhere that the label printed the label with a typo or something.

    from the preorder site on the link on the video

    "We pressed 2,000 Chicago-city-flag star-shaped 12" singles of a demo version of "Chicago" for the Blue Marvel edition of Illinois, but made an error: we printed 45 RPM on the label instead of the correct 33RPM. "I made a lot of mistakes." We're now selling these separately and hope you enjoy (at 33RPM)."
