a fun game to play if you're bored is to decide if every song on this album is about god or being gay

‪Yet to hear a Sufjan album that has let me down: a lot more reserved in terms of production from what I’ve heard before and it just allows this love/intimacy to shine through in some tear jerking highlights. Can see this being a grower.‬

Seven Swans has a psalm-like quality; the stories are intimate, small, and spiritual. While not nearly as expansive as later albums, Stevens feels exceptionally close on this record. 'To Be Alone With You' is the most important song about Lake Michigan ever written. My teen heart could not listen to this song without crying.

The transfiguration is the best song ever
