Sufjan Stevens

“That record has really meant a lot to me. It is probably the record I have connected with the most over the last five years or so. Not only because of its emotional content but also musically I feel like I’ve never heard music like that before. It’s one of the most groundbreaking records we’ve ever had as humans. It is weird to me that it hasn’t gotten more acclaim. I mean, it has gotten a lot of critical acclaim but I saw the records making critics’ album of the year lists and I just couldn’t believe that record wasn’t on top of all the lists. Anybody who really loves music and loves the art form should see that it was the most fantastic, most exceptional record made that year.”
