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.… Expand

mr.hankeyMar 28, 2006Well If you haven't heard of Sufjan Stevens by now since the release of his 2005 album Illinois you either live in a cave or don't Well If you haven't heard of Sufjan Stevens by now since the release of his 2005 album Illinois you either live in a cave or don't know anything about the indie rock scene. Obviously It is as big as the music that they play on your MTV channel. Seven Swans by Sufjan Stevens is a hush and quiet acoustic album that shines the most at the end with a amazing song " The Transfiguration " Which in my opinion is the best on the record and the best song he has ever done. Yes, this detroit native sure can break out of two average albums and come back with 3 killer records. Luckily I became interested since he comes from where I live Detroit. He is soft and the beauty of the music sinks in but he is more amazing because with someone who makes this good music you would most likely expect them to arrogant but he is far from that he seems timid and you can tell by the songs and the lyrics. So what do I think of this album well you could say I think it is a masterpiece of modern music but it is far from perfect. It has it's faults even though they may not show as much as say the new album by the Strokes but he is doing his folk interpretation of music and thats what I like about him.
