5.0 out of 5 stars Sufjan on top form, 11 Dec. 2010
This review is from: All Delighted People (Audio CD)
Oh my goodness.

I haven't written a review here for a very long time, but feel compelled to chuck my two pennies worth in. Bottom line? This is insanely wonderful. If we all felt The Age Of Adz was an exciting electronic venture, this is sheer unadultered, classic Sufjan. Parts will remind you of Illinoise, some of the early Christmas EPs, and then out of nowhere he throws in some twisted Age Of Adz electro-squelch. The compositions are, at times, sprawling and epic, gorgeously layered and textured, with some stunning choral parts and some of the finest, intimate harmonies he's put to disc.

There's really not a half-baked moment here - anyone familiar with his work will instantly fall in love with it, and for those only beginning their Stevens journey, considering this his most recent work, it's actually a fine place to start.

For a fiver you've no argument. Possibly the most beautiful and well considered record I've bought for a very long time. And I spend stupid amounts of money on here.....
