Sufjan is a great composer. Always amazed by the beauty of melodies and the depth of lyrics. Favorite songs: Should Have Known Better and - less famous - Size Too Small (from Seven Swans).

What a guy. Pulling out these creative albums, playing all those instruments and composing it all himself. Not even just talented in playing instruments, but I mean in the quality of the albums too and the lyricism. Sufjan is a smart guy and he doesn't hold back on that in his lyrics.
What a beautiful voice he has too. Listen to him in a song then watch an interview, it's quite astonishing how different he sounds. Not the best discography but I can appreciate all the little pieces of work he's done to get to where he is now.

If you haven't listened to him yet, listen to Illinoise or Carrie & Lowell. Those are his best pieces of work I think, although I like Age of Adz a lot it's a bit harder to get into. He pushes in a different direction with each album and I fully appreciate that since if otherwise, it would just get bland.

I can understand why some people wouldn't like Sufjan. His music is on the softer side and delves into the human condition and its woes moreso than other artists. If you put that aside though, you will find a real musical genius who can make you feel strong emotions.

One of the best musicians and composers of our generation. He is extremely talented and has a beautiful voice. His ability to tell stories and narrate through poetic lyrics set him above most other songwriters. He's my favorite songwriter, and to me he is the 21st century Bob Dylan.

From AdriSP
Folk, Electronica, Pop/Rock...I don't even care about what I'm going to listen, because I know it will be awesome. He's not just another songwriter. He fills every single song he creates with a little of himself, of his beliefs, memories and feelings. Carrie & Lowell is an example of this(an ode to his parents, who had recently died), but all his albums have something beautiful and eternal. Undoubtebly, one of the best artists of the 21st century.
P.D.: In my opinion, "The Age Of Adz" is highly underrated. It's my favourite album along with "Illinois". "Impossible Soul"(a 25-minutes-song, literally 1/3 of "The Age Of Adz") makes worth listening the full album, but the other songs are still great.

I wholeheartedly agree with RepoMan. The man is self-indulgent as fuck, but who cares? His talent is undeniable.
