    Just Fantastic

    I feel in love with Sufjan's voice the second I heard it. There's just something so calming about it, like he's your father or your grandfather telling you a fantastic old story that puts you to sleep at night when you're little. I absolutely love Illinoise, but I also think a...

    Driving Lessons

    If you have ever seen the movie Driving Lessons, you'll know just how touching his music can be. Of course, if you're a real hardcore fan go for Illinois. It's his best album. If you're in the mood to cry, I suggest Romulus.

    Casmir Pulaski Day

              I love this song. If you go to www.download.com you can listen to the song. It made me cry. Sufjan has a beautiful soul. He is a gift to the world. I read that when he was a baby he was placed on the doorstep...

    Love His Music.

    God, he's amazing. He's such an eclectic musician. He's quite different from the stuff I usually listen to, which is comprised mainly of doom-and-gloom stuff. Haha.

    Sufjan

    Sufjan is my road-trip music. Illinois is probably one of the better road albums ever made, and songs like Chicago could be left on loop endlessly on a drive through the plains. Anyhow. That said Michigan isn't half bad either, and his double album nearly had me liking...

    Chicago - Multiple Personalities Vs Acoustic

    I absolutely adore this song. I love that he has been able to take this one song and turn it into numerous others. There's a version for every mood now! It really is brilliant. The clapping, the innocence in the multiple personalities one just makes it so fun, and the added...

    Illinoise

    I looove his music. It's so different. The instruments he uses are just so ... I'm not used to them. His voice is extremely soft and his texts are wonderful. And the names of his songs are so unbelievable! Just have a look at the songtitles from Illinoise and you will see - this...

    The Predatory Wasp Of The Palisades Is Out To Get Us

    This guy is a genius. I have discovered him recently like a month ago on last fm. His voice is soothing and lyrics are great in almost every song.

    Yay

    I first heard his music on the O.C., but it didn't really look into it until this year. I met a girl who would become my musical guru and she introduced me to him in February. At first, I didn't really have time to get into him; then this fall, she gave me a bunch of his music...
