USA, 2004, singer-songwriter / indie folk / chamber folk

Sufjan StevensSeven Swans: Frighteningly personal, confessional poetry in music form. There is only one way I listen to this album, so when it came up in rotation while I was out, I skipped it and moved on to the next album. When I got home, I told my wife we would be listening to this after supper. So once the chores were done, we banished the children downstairs, turned on the faerie lights, and I broke out the vinyl LP. Then I sat back and fell into a kind of meditation as Sufjan unfolded a beautiful album of religious imagery.
