Latest Sufjan Stevens album wows the critics

THE LATEST album by critically acclaimed songsmith Sufjan Stevens, 'Carrie & Lowell', has received a rave review in Mojo magazine. Read the review, "'We're all going to die,' he intones in the coda to 'Fourth Of July', but in a way that suggests he's simply reminding himself of life's finite reality. With his double-tracked semi-whisper carrying the melodies, his deft acoustic guitar and banjo lines, and his overriding belief in the worth of a well-constructed, mid-tempo tune, Stevens comes across more as little boy lost than harbinger of doom." Two songs named as "key tracks" in the review are "No Shade In The Shadow Of The Cross" and "Drawn To The Blood". CR
