The Age of Adz

I have just been listening to the new album from Sufjan Stevens. You all know of him already from his mesmerizing musical journeys through his prevoius two albums "Michigan" and "Come on feel the Illinoise", if you haven't where have you been?!

If you have then you are familiar with his soft sing song melodies, story telling lyrics all hung on a landscape of college band brass and gently plucked banjo. But 'The Age of Adz' isn't at all like this (apart from the first track which is familiar territory that lulls you into a false sense of security before the blippy synth wash of 'Too Much' and that is just a bit of a softener for the title track 'The age of Adz', anyway this is turning into a review I'll let you judge for yourself, the album is streaming in it's entirety here, put your headphones on and give it a listen!
