Important P.S.A.::::::::::

Sufjan Stevens is, at the very least, 10 times as talented as you or anyone in your immediate family (unless you are related to Sufjan Stevens) could ever hope to be.

I'm 20 times more talented than Sufjan Stevens...but that's because I can tap out better songs with just a stick.

Correction: Sufjan Stevens is, at the very least, 10 times LESS talented as you or anyone in your immediate family (unless you are related to Sufjan Stevens) could ever hope to be.

If you'd said Nels Cline is 10 times more talented than me or anyone in my family, I'd agree. Sufjan is pretty good at times, but you're giving him far too much credit.

As always, you never cease to be an inspired master of wit and humour.

I simply don't know how you do it, sometimes.









But really, this is just about how awesome Sufjan Stevens is. If you disagee you can leave, you'll be fined later. As for now, I'm going to listen to Greetings From Michigan: The Great Lakes State and wallow in my own worthlessness.

Well, my family is pretty much musically untalented (if there is such a word), so Sufjan has no basis of comparison there. But I do agree that he's great. Illinoise is among my favorite albums. I love the super ultra large song titles as well.

Yeah, he's very talented. I like Illinois a lot.

I'm just starting to listen to his earlier stuff -- Year of the Asthmatic Cat! Enjoy Your Rabbit is kinda strange.

Seven Swans is really beautiful as well.

I suggest any fans of Illinoise pick that up as well.

Too bad half of Illinois is filler. Not that I don't enjoy it as whole...but...just saying.

I think Aunt Joni is more talented.

Sufjan Stevens is good, but is probabaly the most overrated fellows I've seen in awhile. 1 song kills then the next 3 are filler...

I can understand this view, except that a lot of the "filler" is usually just short little interludes that I actually find fairly interesting. His long-ass albums are usually filled with a bunch of lengthy, solid-to-great tracks, with little ditties here or there. I find it refreshing.

He's got some good stuff.

Casimir Pulaski Day
Come On! Feel the Illinoise!
Chicago
No Man's Land
The Avalanche

I gotta agree that he's a little hit-or-miss, but when he hits it's all good.
