This is very likely the saddest album ever made (at least it's the saddest one I've heard). It's beautiful and haunting, Sufjan writes his lyrics like a poet. The instrumentation is much simpler than some of his other albums which fits perfectly with the tone. It really feels like we're inside Sufjan's head as he's working through the complex feelings he has for his troubled mother. My favorite tracks are, "Death with Dignity", "Fourth of July", and "The Only Thing". Fourth of July is especially heartbreaking as Sufjan recounts the final moments he shared with his dying mother. Everyone should listen to this difficult, moving album.

Such a beautiful record. Stevens keeps the instrumentation to an absolute minimum to truly flesh out pure expression. Touching as hell from beginning to end. The vulnerability and sentiment felt here is so raw and natural, its impossible not to get dragged in. This album is his Nebraska, only a lot better

Carrie and Lowell is a lo-fi record but that doesn't matter because the songs are superb throughout. It's suprising that a lo-fi record would trump pretty much everything considering everything is so perfectly produced these days but it's a triumph for the song over polish. A dark but uplifting masterpiece.

It's silly to call him the 21s century's Bob Dylan, but if It exists a equivalent so, It got to be Sufjan Stevens. Especially in this album where he stands away from fancy instruments and take the more simple route, that isn't in no way a bad thing. Everything that this albums needs is in there, you almost forget that someday this artist composed "Chicago" or the eletronic experiments in his previous album, all that stands is his voice, and his guitar, with additional instruments well inserted, and of course his beatiful lyrics about life and death, or what more you may understand from It.

This album is so quiet and spiritually uplifting for me. I think maybe the songwriting isn't quite as melodically distinctive as some of Sufjan Stevens' earlier albums though it's still pretty amazing on the whole. It may be his most coherent album statement as well.
