Hard to judge one song when it's clearly meant to be listened to as one holistic piece, but this sounds immense

New Sufjan mega album about his dead dad? Even if it is instrumental, I’m pretty sure Sufjan’s goal is to personally make me cry

Seems like he’s keen to release more worthless trash. The pace at which he’s churning these out speaks volumes. Such a shame.

He fell off hard after C&L

I'd rather he branched out into other sounds than made another C&L. He basically perfected his acoustic side with Mystery of Love and The Ascension is shockingly underrated.

"sufjan hasn't done anything remotely interesting after illinois tbh"

idk a ton of people think C&L is the best thing ever. Also are you really saying age of adz is boring? I mean, even if that album isn't your cup of tea it's definitely not boring
