#27-SUFJAN STEVENS-The Age Of Adz (Ashmatic Kitty)

Sufjan Stevens´comeback has left a bittersweet taste in our mouth. Not because ‘The Age Of Adz’ was not a good record, but because after all this time he couldn’t reach the heights of his former work. First thing we knew is that the album-per-state of the union project had been definitively parked; then that the sound prevailing in ‘Adz’ was a return to the simple electronic touches of his early work; both news weren’t exactly received with joy. Compared to his peers, Stevens has proven that he still is well above the average and capable of producing quality work, but despite the notable effort, he hasn’t been able to take our memories of Illinois, not even of Michigan, away.
