Sufjan Stevens - Illinois

When thinking about what the best albums of the 00's were this one is definitely near the top. The songwriting doesn't get much better and it's an album that is just as good the 100th time as it was the first. Pretty amazing that one dude could write all of this. It was the second album in a series of 50 that he planned to release for every state but that idea has since fizzled.

Over the next few weeks/months I'm going to try and post some other albums that I think were the best of the decade. Anyway, enjoy this one.

yes this is awesome. I was intrigued by the 50 state deal, but yeah, you better start cranking them out or it simply isn't happening.

i read that the next one is an ode to the jersey turnpike.
