Sufjan Stevens - The Ascension

Ryusei

His new album is out now and I gotta say I really ascended. I highly recommend it :giveup:

It's not out for me for another few hours, but I've had Video Game on repeat since it was released... perched to listen to the whole thing

Where should a beginner start with Sufjan's music? 

And I don't mean the best album but what's a good starting point? Any suggestions? Maybe a few random singles and then an album?

Hmm maybe I'm not the best person to give advice on this as I have not heard all of his albums (but intend to). I got introduced to him through Mystery Of Love and Visions of Gideon (featured in Call Me By Your Name) Maybe Tonya Harding (another single) He's more of an album artist and a lot of them are quite long. Carrie & Lowell is a really gorgeous but also sad album, can't go wrong with that, I've never seen anyone say they don't like that album. If you like the Ascension, I heard Age of Adz is kind of similar in style. And Illinois is another one that is very acclaimed by listeners and critics alike. I also heard Seven Swans and really enjoyed that one.

I think he's just a great ally. He has pride songs, did the music for Call Me By Your Name and has some relatable lyrics, but he's never really said.

Hmmm OK, I might give those a go that got you introduced. Yeah I've heard Carrie and Lowell is a good place to start but I'm not sure. I do enjoy explicitly sad music but I think it can be quite heavy and isn't always the best place for me to start with an artist I'm new to but it sounds like I should probably just go for it

This new album may also be a good starting point honestly, it's quite electronic and a lot less heavy.
