Too Much (6:44)
Age of Adz (8:00)

Now That I'm Older (4:56)
Get Real Get Right (5:10)
Bad Communication (2:24)
All for Myself (2:55)
I Want to Be Well (6:27)
Impossible Soul (25:35)
So just shy of 75 minutes. With 1/3rd of that being the final song.

Wow. You're not kidding. I really, really like this sound... much better than the seven-layer-cake pop orchestra sound of All Delighted People. For the first time in a while, I'm really excited about Sufjan.

Wow. I can't wait to get this whole album. Quite an evolution.
There are a number of videos of live performances of this song on YouTube. I've been hooked on this song for a while.

word on the street is that there are f-bombs and autotune!
So, he's going Joaquin Phoenix on us?

It also sounds like there is indeed autotune galore... but only one f-bomb.
And, bizarrely, it sounds like it is bascially a breakup album... based on the out-of-context snippets of lyrics quoted by the NME writer, anyway.

On The Age of Adz, Stevens replaces delicately plucked banjo lines, wispy vocals and sentimental melodies with glitchy soundscapes, hip-hop beats and heavily filtered vocals.
Sounds like "You Are The Blood," which is fine with me.

Where does Sufjan using Autotune fall on the Apocalypse countdown? I lost my chart.
Well, this IS the Age of Adz. I think if the album is named after the work of an apocalyptic schizophrenic it is expected to move us closer to the apocalypse. My guess is that it is now officially one minute to midnight.

Worst album of the year: The Age of Adz. Best: "Impossible Soul."
Age of Adz is Sufjan's Kid A.
I'm pretty sure I don't agree with either of these statements... but give me another couple of days.
