Discussion in 'Pop' started by Suedey, Jul 1, 2020.
listen to Come on Feel the Illinoise! as thats a very solid album I feel
I’m one Jewel album away from a mental breakdown
He'll never wear that funny hat again...
This album is just so good. Honestly. Also is the King of Pop coming out? I think there's a lyric in which he says I've lost my preference
Anyway I might have to return to my Sufi avatar. Annie was fun for a week.
Run Away With Me is something else.
The whole album.
Honestly I die. I die (to the tune of 'I Rise').
I think he's been 'out' for years in his lyrics, hasn't he?
Or its just wishful thinking on my part.
I thought Sufjan had come out YEARS AGO?
I'm so obsessed with this album, I really love it. I think the production similarities at points to Homogenic and Vespertine really shine through for me.
No wonder the reviews were so noncommittal and weird. There's waaaay too much to absorb here to form an opinion with on just a few listens.
I don't get the Age Of Adz comparisons either - this album sounds NOTHING LIKE IT AT ALL to my ears.
Omg can we get a live reaction thread for when you listen to Carrie and Lowell, if you make it to the end ALIVE!
I'm devastated that the '13 Sufjan Stevens Outfits Ranked In Ascending Order Of How Badly I Want Him To Fist Me In Them' listicle, the very ZENITH of music journalism, has been expunged from the internet.
i gave up on this midway through my first listen. it seems a bit too indulgent without offering much in return. video game was a standout (thanks to its focus) which rather says a lot for me. the only other one that left an impression was tell me you love me.
for every record of his i love (illinois, c&l), i seem to dislike another (the age of adz, all delighted people).
Yeah nothing like Age of Adz to me (which is my least fave Sufi album I think)..
This is like Bjork and also ARCAA!!!
Quite enjoying this, it’s quite a MOOD PIECE. Not listening too hard as I sense it’s utterly depressing once you DIG DEEP!
The King of Pop is nothing if not deep!
I am finding it vaguely lol that queen Sufjan has recorded an album that often touches upon his (NEGATIVE) relationship with modern day America, called it The Ascension, and has literally ASCENDED to his own secluded mansion in up-state New York because he can't handle being around other human beings any more
Still loving this. The 80 min runtime ZIPS BY for me, I've even added on My Rajneesh onto to the end because frankly WHY NOT MAKE IT 90 MINUTES
Just as the Countess sells her house up there, they could’ve been friends
omg IMAGINE! Coke with THE COUNTESS in the bathroom, ayahuasca & ascension with Queen Sufi in his TREEHOUSE!
What a DREAM that would be
LuAnn is selling the upstate house for $1 million, surely we can all club together and buy it?
The clear vinyl has arrived and it's just so beautiful! @wurst did you get it as well? The packaging is something else.
This really is such a lovely album.
