  1. I’m sure a lot of people love this and is good , but it seems so depressing and sad. I could not listen to this for too long. Sure he is a great artist and storyteller

  2. I will never forget the first time I heard Sufjan Stevens, it was like a revelation for me. It was the music I always envisioned in my head but never knew what it exactly was until I heard him. Now That I’m Older should have been included!

  3. Sufjan Stevens is easily one of my most favorite musicians of all time. There’s something deeply poignant and intimate in so many of his songs, as if we’re hearing a man lay his soul bare, and he has a talent for making an honest connection with listeners.
    I discovered Carrie & Lowell around the same time my grandfather, who had at one point been rather estranged from his daughter (my mother), was dying of dementia. Somehow listening to it not only soothed my own aches, but helped me feel a potion of what my mother was likely feeling. And that’s the magic of Stevens’s music–it’s not just a song, it’s not just an album, it’s an experience.
    Such a joy to see this pop up in my subscriptions feed. <3 I really hope Stevens continues to grow and connect to more people the way he's connected to me. <3

  4. ”the ballad of john wayne gacey”…………………. the achingly gorgeous song about a very,very naughty boy
