Sufjan Stevens - The Ascension [Limited Edition]
Clear Double LP Limited Edition Vinyl includes a 16-page booklet of original drawings by Sufjan Stevens.
"In that shadow timeline, I’m tempted to propose that The Ascension would be Stevens’ equivalent of mid-to-late-1970s post-Watergate records of malaise and disillusion, such as Gil Scott-Heron and Brian Jackson’s Winter in America, Mitchell’s The Hissing of Summer Lawns, Bruce Springsteen’s Darkness on the Edge of Town, and anything by Warren Zevon or Randy Newman or Steely Dan; you could put early CBGB punk in there too."
"Whatever perspective he may be singing from, he sounds tapped into something elemental, filled with purpose and clarity, following wherever his vision leads. He sounds like himself."
