Review this album
Dec 24, 2012It is Christmas Eve, so I'm afraid I don't have a lot of time to spend on a review, but if you liked Songs for Christmas, I think I can safely say you won't be any less happy with Silver and Gold. It's truly another gem from Sufjan. What a great present for the whole family!
Jan 3, 2013Sufjan Stevens adds some interesting electronic vibes to some standard Christmas Songs and other songs meant to emote the feelings people go through during the holidays. My favorite are the standards. I tried playing this as the backdrop for our Christmas Eve party, but my older sister (she likes R&B and jazz) wasn't having any of it, and I had to keep putting Sufjan back on when she turned it off. It's MY house you know! Sheesh. Hey! There's another tense, negative Christmas emotion for Sufjan to turn into music -- hating your siblings! lol… Expand
