Definitely among my favorite Sufjan records. Simple instrumentation, jarringly soothing vocals, and beautiful lyricism make this album one of his best

This album is so underrated.

To Be Alone With You might just be my favourite Sufjan song. So simple, but each note reaches out and wraps its fingers around your heart.

Sufjan's less known and more folksy album, filled with some great instrumentation and lyrical content.

One of the best straight up folk albums out there. This album is honestly just as good as Illinois but is around 700 slots down on the overall. Give more love please <3

Released inbetween the, Michigan, and, Illinois, albums, seven swans, is a fine record. Superior in my opinion to the recent, Carrie and Lowell, it features some stunning songs. To be alone with you, this dress looks nice on you, and, size too small, are all excellent. The best Sufjan Stevens record not about an American state.

Agreed this is underrated; put the headphones on and listen to this album, then do it again. It's a haunting, brilliant album that manages subtlety in all facets; the sparse instrumentation, the compelling songwriting and understated but powerful vocals.

beautiful album, so underrated on this site. As a non-religious person I was unsure about this one, but the imagery really hit deep anyway, I love it.
