Sufjan Stevens – All Delighted People

posted by tommy

It’s been five years since Sufjan dropped his last album. Around 18 hours ago, without warning, without advertising (though to be fair, fools like me will do that on his behalf) Sufjan Stevens released All The Delighted People. It’s 8 tracks which is in my eyes neither EP nor album but some hybrid of the two. The man is a visionary. The choral arrangements on the opening track are cosmic. Admittedly, that’s the only track I’ve listened to but I refuse to listen to this EP for the first time as I fall asleep. This is getting my undivided attention tomorrow morning when I wake. Stream the entire album in full right here or purchase it from Sufjan Stevens’ Bandcamp for a mere five American dollars. Credit to Sam Manchester for the intercontinental tip-off.

Have your say:

    I have listened to it through once today and found it good but not great. A little underwhelming, I guess. No killer songs. I probably enjoyed Track #6 the most, though. Maybe it will grow on me …

    You're most welcome Tess. You must be the friend Liv has referred to a few times now.

    Lachos, has it grown on you yet? I'm all about it. His voice is much more produced but the arrangements are out of this world!

    It's definitely growing on me. I see what you mean about the voice and the arrangements too.
