In a good way? Or a "Radiohead already did it" kind of way?

I loved Illinoise and I really admire his obvious talent/ambition, but I quickly got tired of the choirboy/banjo plucking shtick. But halfway through sampling this new mutherfucker, I'm floored. (ie Kid A in a good way.....not very similar to the actual Kid A, but a similar "move", if that makes sense.) I'll have much more to say about this after I (snicker....I'm so old fashioned) pick up the cd tomorrow.

Well, that was very different from this.

Age of Adz replaces the sweeping strings and horns with bloops and bleeps, not that different just a little more electronic, still the same melodies you'd expect from Sufjan Stevens, like I said in the new release thread, he uses autotune.

Yeah, it's funny that the autotune seems to piss so many off. In my 3 runs thru this magnificent album so far, I see that aspect as an "artistic choice" which actually enhances the proceedings. I mean, Christ, Lennon did that thing in Tomorrow Never Knows. Was that a bad thing?

I do agree though that the electronics are "flourishes" and not some kind of Metal Machine Music redifine. It still very much sounds like a Sufjan album.

Just like Kid A was very obviously Radiohead, from the first 30sec. OKC be damned.

Just want to say that I quickly got tired of this, it's a bit of a mess, but the "EP" preceding it, All Delighted People, is ace imho, and it got bad reviews everywhere it seems.

I had friends going crazy over this album. But it just sounded like really long versions of his shit I had already heard and grown tired of, with, as someone else deftly put it, with more bleeps and bloops.

That's fair, I think. At first I really loved it, on the surface, but there didn't seem to be much beneath the surface, knowhatimean?

And then someone gave me that "EP" (60mins long) for Xmas, and I groaned a bit, remembering all the bad reviews.....and I just don't fuckin get it! Most under-rated release of 2010 for me. It's beautiful. The songs on All Delighted People are stuck in my brain. I still can't get beneath the surface of Adz....it's too cluttered and claustrophobic.
