Come On Feel The Illinoise

Sufjan Stevens' Come On Feel The Illinoise album is out this week, and I have to say, it's pretty darn awesome.

Dusted Magazine has a cool new interview with Sufjan on the topic of the album, and what he might do next with his "50 States" project. The track listing can be found on a blog entry from last month, and in case anyone missed it, there's still an MP3 of Stevens' song "Chicago" available online.

I haven't seen many reviews of the album yet, but I'm sure this is going to be showing up on some "best of" lists at the end of the year.

Oh, neat! I thought it was next week that it came out! (I guess he wanted to get it out before the the saucers come.) So, neato! "Chicago" was such a cool song, it made me want to check the full record out.

Also: Amazon has a couple more tracks for free download, "Casimir Pulaski Day" and "The Man of Metropolis Steals Our Hearts". Just do a music search for "Sufjan Stevens" and they'll pop up.

I'm listening to the first one now, and so far it's pretty cool, but I like "Chicago" better. Still, though it's pretty cool, and I'm probably gonna pick this record up.

Finally found a review of Illinoise, and it's a good one: from Popmatters.com
