My favourite Sufjan album.
Get them all from Michigan onwards...
Then get Michigan and Seven Swans. Seven Swans is my favourite of his.
most accessible i think.
Its what really got me into him. That one and Illinois are the best he's done.
which is not to do it a dis-service, it's beautiful. it's just that some of his other albums can get a little self indulgent in parts.
But feel that both are a bit too long and sometimes get bogged down in extraneous instrumentals. Seven Swans is filler-free, and gorgeously simple. They're all great though.
