After playing “Seven Swans” over and over i switched to “Illinois”. After getting used to it it’s on a constant shuffle on my iPod. I never thought dat a banjo and melancholy mix together this good.
Nothing bad about the dead but Sufjan beats Elliott Smith as my personal number 1 singer/songwriter.
“Illinois” is part of a very ambitious project to make an album about every state in the US. Although impossible it think this is allready number 2; in 2004 Sufjan Stevens brought out “Michigan”.
