Sometime in the last couple days, Opus published his review of the new Sufjan Stevens album, Sufjan Stevens invites you to Come On Feel The Illinoise!.
Do yourself a favor and skid over there to read his writeup, because more than likely it will be the best one to be written about it when all is said and done. It's an outstanding review. I feel like there's nothing more I could say myself about it!
While you're reading that, go ahead and play these songs, which have been extracted from the record for you to preview. Then, of course, I beg all of you who like it to purchase the CD when it comes out July 5th, courtesy of Asthmatic Kitty. Don't be a bum.
