Double LP Features 12-Minute Track "America"!
Consequence of Sound's Top 50 Albums Of 2020 - Rated 19/50!
The Ascension is Sufjan Stevens' first proper solo album since 2015's Carrie & Lowell and features 15 new songs, including "America", a 12-minute track debuted as the LP's lead single.
The Ascension is the type of album that is made for vinyl, a double LP that begs you to listen from start to finish. The lyrics are the star of the show here, forcing you to contemplate the sorrow and despondency we've all lived through over the last 8-9 months. It's the musical equivalent of watching a film that sticks with you for hours after; it forces you into the mindset to address your feelings. This album is not an easy listen, but that's truly what makes it excellent.
