    I'm having trouble putting it into words how beautiful this album is. The banjo has never sounded so soothing and Sufjan's voice is so entrancing. The music just keeps getting better too; the transfiguration might be the most gorgeous thing my ears have ever experienced.

  1. Even if we're not taken by the subject matter, we're taken by how beautifully and personally Sufjan is taken by it.
  2. He shares [Elliott] Smith's gift for sketching in complex emotional states with telling details. [19 Mar 2004, p.66]
  3. A consistently moving, subtly beautiful experience.
