The Independent

Carrie & Lowell, Sufjan Stevens’s valedictory reflection on his late mother, is an unusually tender and revealing reminiscence; and this live recording is, if anything, even more moving

Carrie & Lowell Live manages to make itself accessible to listeners who bemoaned the original LP’s lack of variety and flair, and all without betraying diehards such as me who swear that C&L is one of the best albums of the last decade.

Pitchfork

This audiovisual album takes a record that thrived on simplicity and adorns it with glowsticks, but each track retains a subtle beauty.

Under The Radar

These live versions from Sufjan Stevens and fellows are as universal as they are intimate, with a strength of vibration you wouldn't need to search for with your eyes closed.

As a live album this is an absolute astounding tight sounding band enhancing Sufjan's spellbinding vocals...

I've always struggled with Sufjan Stevens despite respecting his craft and the deep inner place his work comes from, this live album makes Carrie & Lowell more digestible and in fact deeply enjoyable.

Therefore I feel his albums need to be more live-treated instead of the studio-polish which simply turns me off of most of his releases. Some voices should really only be behind a piano or an acoustic guitar.
