Sufjan Stevens 'Illinois'
Product Information //
SUFJAN'S BREAKTHROUGH FIFTH ALBUM FROM 2005. Illinois is the second in a proposed series of concept albums from the indie folk singer, based on the 50 states of the United States. It has since been revealed the whole project was indeed just a joke, but hey, he got two states down! Similiar to the Michigan album, every song on Illinois references Illinois in some way or another; whether it's places, people, or important events - they're all linked to the Prairie state. This one was thoroughly praised by the critics and is widely considered one of, if not THE most successful album from Sufjan to date.
