Illinoise album for sale Product Description

Illinoise album for sale by Sufjan Stevens was released Jul 05, 2005 on the Asthmatic Kitty label. The second entry from sui generis singer/songwriter Sufjan Stevens in his absurdly ambitious project to make a record for every state in America outdistances even 2003's superb GREETINGS FROM MICHIGAN in scope and beauty. A sweeping paean to the Lincoln state, ILLINOIS weaves together history, personal confession, and detail-filled scenarios with chamber folk, expansive orchestral pop, and back-porch pastoral settings for a stunningly progressive indie gem that sound like Brian Wilson, Stereolab, and Neil Young holding hands in heaven. Illinoise CD music contains a single disc with 22 songs.   ...See Full Description

Over-Hyped pretension
Illinoise CD music Ok, it was fine, unique, playful, yet substantive an all that. Hard to use the word original in music, but he comes as close an anyone.

You'll either Love it or Hate it.
Illinoise album for sale If you're looking for something original in pop music, this is the album for you. It's not heavy rock, but it's not sugary pop either.
