definitely a sufjan fan. how did you discover him and his music?

my “favorites” of his music varies on my mood. but i just have to say i’m in love with all of his creations. i’ve got every album produced by asthmatic kitty records and a couple live/side-b albums [:
if you’re wondering what albums to get i’d say just grab whatever you find, i’m sure you’ll love them all. with (maybe) exception to Enjoy Your Rabbit which is definitely a (crap i can’t find the word i want to use) different sound than his others. mostly electronic.

I’d say start off with Illinoise… Great album that has all types of tunes.

Illinoise is amazing.
My favorite songs of his are:
Casimir Pulaski Day
Chicago – depending on my mood
To Be Alone With You
The Tallest Man, The Broadest Shoulders

I will think of more later.

I love every one of his songs… his creativity blows my mind. You might also want to check out other artists who are signed onto his label, Asthmatic Kitty. I couldn’t get enough of Sufjan so I decided to check out other AK artists such as Roman Bolks and Jai Agnish and I was very impressed!

He’s a genius: multifaceted, extremely talented, creative and innovative. I admire and enjoy all his recordings and regret that I was too ill to attend his last live performance here in L.A. I hope to catch him on his next visit. He is a truly amazing artist.

yeah dude! He’s amazing! My favorite songs of his are “casmir Pulaski day”, “for the widows in paradise”, “all the trees”,” kill”, and “majestys snowbird.”

I didn’t realize he was so big… concerts in L.A.? I just got some of his CD’s from a friend a couple years ago…and I’ve never been one to really follow an artist and their doings so I didn’t know his fanbase grew.

He was just a hometown singer imo. Wow.
