The way this record draws you in with it's pulsing IDM and transitions into a soothing ambience is almost unparalleled. What's better is that Hopkins uses that soundscape as a mechanism for Immunity's concept. It feels like your entering into a spaceship, bursting at light speed and then suddenly pausing to take the moment in. It's an incredibly emotive electronic album, one that kind of bends and weaves it's way into your consciousness. All of that to say, this is a very fulfilling listen.

On the one hand, it's not quite the same without the uncleared samples but on the other, the sound quality is drastically improved. It's a real pleasure to have Diet Chill Out on streaming services after all these years.

Stripped-back but not bare. What Seven Swans lacks in musical versatility, it more than makes up for in touching lyricism and gorgeous vocals.

Endlessly engaging compositions and Sufjan's best song-writing make Illinois his Magnum Opus. Pain and joy, accessibility and experimentation and thematic tracks with stand-alone power lay neatly wrapped in this wholly consistent and memorable package.

I feel this is on-par with Illinois in terms of quality. While it's themes keep it from being an album you'll come back to as much, the other side is that when you do - it hits hard
