Sufjan Stevens
I searched and didn't find a thread on him, but I love him. I always liked Seven Swans, but I bought Illinois today and am in love with it! Anyone else like him?

Love him!!! He's definitely one of my favorite artists out right now. If you don't have it already, definitely check out the Michigan album as well. It's as sad as Illinois is triumphant.

All you had to do was check the album of the day thread, because he's in there about 100 times!

Love love Sufjan Stevens! I have all three of his albums. The Michigan album is my fave with Illinois a close second. I can't wait to get all his 50 state CD's (that's if he completes them all.......)

He has more than 3 albums. :p

But i only have 3 of his albums as well. From what i've read about his first it sounds kinda strange. I'll get it one day though, i'm sure.

So what state should he do next!? If he stays in the general area, i'd go with Wisconson. I mean, how boring would an album about Ohio be!? But my ultimate choice would be Georgia - i'd love to hear what he'd do with that state.

I looked it up, and he has two albums that i don't have: A Sun Came, which i think is his first and is folky and Enjoy Your Rabbit, which is an instrumental electronica concept album. Does anyone here have these? Are they worthwhile?

BEST song title EVER : A Conjunction of Drones Simulating the Way in which Sufjan Stevens has an existential crisis in the GREAT GODFREY MAZE

You guys should check out his song on the Rubber Soul anniversary tribute - "What Goes On". Somehow he took the Ringo song and did something special with it. He completely deconstructed the song, but it's all still there and reworked amazingly! (unlike the Fiery Furnaces and their masacre of "Norwegian Wood" )

Illinois was selected as the #1 album of the year by NPR listeners. Yay, Sufjan!

He relaxes me when i put on his music. Its alright, but its missing that extra something to become a favourite and heavy rotation in my playlist.
