Sufjan Stevens | Illonois
I have jumped on the bandwagon. After hearing about this Michigan-raised "pop genius" I've finally settled upon/given enough time to an album that lives up to the hype. Illonois is so rich and full it would seem off to write about it...I'll add to this post when I have the energy. For now, it is enough to say that track 3: Come on! Feel the Illonois! has an AMAZING nod to the Cure. Musical homage at its best.
Come on! Feel the Illonois!
With a nod to the Cure, all 8 minutes and 35 seconds of this song will have you and yours arm in arm with giddy smiles and a newfound respect for FUN.

Whowever is doing the backup vocals on this song is perfect.
