This is the closest Sufjan Stevens has come to recapturing the magic he found in recording Illinois. While this is not a continuation of the fifty-state project (which I still hope he considers resuming at some point later on), it revisits some of the same emotional geography of Illinois: the pain of losing loved ones (the album is named for his mother and stepfather, both of whom died in the years before the album came out), the melancholy of ambivalent childhood memories. No one navigates this difficult emotional terrain better than Sufjan Stevens, particularly on the heartwrenching and wonderful "The Only Thing," which explores the rich band of human experience that sustains us and keeps us rising again each morning.

This is all-time top 10 material, largely due to its uncanny capacity to cut straight to deep personal feelings on a consistent basis, without needing a direct connection to the subject matter.

an album I am unable to stop listening to. It is packed with beauty and delicacies. A magical album that is melancholic but strangely uplifting.

This is album is an emotionally devastating tragedy to my heart. And I love it.

There so many masterpieces in there and they work together perfectly.

A better album than Illinois. Far deeper, richer, poignant, beautiful, and personal.

Not a single song that is less than perfect, possibly Sufjan Steven's greatest work - and that is saying something.

A consistantly brilliant album from Sufjan Stevens, although it may not reach the heights of Illinoise, the plus side is it doesn't have those ever so slightly annoying instrumental interludes the other album has.

Fourth Of July is quite emotive and the best track here for me.
