15. Sufjan Stevens-The Age Of Adz

after four years of his musical silence -claiming the idea of writing an album for each of the 50 america's states, abandoning this idea, questioning about the point of releasing new albums or ever writing music, eventually he does something different, something more difficult, something that other pop artists wouldn't do. he is pushing it, he is moving forward. into a more electronic way. industrials beats, minimal blips, synthesizers, distorted trombone, harps, horns, backing vocals and his bittersweet voice compose his musical path. this album requires time and devotion, but finally it will reward you. and for the finale, sufjan screaming: we can do much more together, it's not so impossible.
