I like Planetarium a lot, probably about 20% of it is unnecessary but stuff like Jupiter is loads of fun and Mercury is genuinely one of our book’s best songs.
Got super excited then! Now tempered
Ah the annual initial hype upon seeing a new Sufjan album followed by the realisation that it’s just another mediocre side project.
Can’t see him going back to the “illinois” stage of his career.
No, neither can I. But surely he’s got another C&L or Adz in him?
how do you know it’s mediocre ?!
Judging by the non album stuff from the C&L era he’s still got more than enough juice for another incredible album. Adz and C&L are his best.
He better release a (proper) album this year, don’t want to break the 2005, 2010, 2015… cycle
New album streaming from 7pm today
physical release date also moved forward
Streaming this cos fuck all else to do.
Up on Spotify too - but obviously heed their plea to support local record shops by getting it mail order if you’re in a position to - It’s strong WFH music!! Beautiful in many places
Not really too keen on this new album unfortunately.
Give me a proper singsong album, Sufjan!
