Album


Illinois styled Sufjan Stevens Invites You To: Come On Feel the ILLINOISE on the cover sometimes written as Illinoise is a 2005 concept album by American singer-songwriter Sufjan Stevens. His fifth studio album, it features songs referencing places, events, and persons related to the U. state of Illinois. Illinois is Stevens' second based on a U. state-part of a planned series of fifty that began with the 2003 album Michigan and that Stevens has since acknowledged was a joke.

He never made it past this second attempt, presumably because it would be nearly impossible to realize the concept so perfectly ever again. Here, he folds Prairie State iconography into brutally intimate narratives as effortlessly as he builds simple, folky foundations into exquisite orchestro-rock excess. Illinois is an audacious spectacle, offering up grand anthems Chicago one moment and sympathetic laments for serial killers John Wayne Gacy, Jr. the next. Illinois or Sufjan Stevens Invites You To: Come On Feel The Illinoise is the second album in the so-called 50 States Project, which later turned out to be a stunt. The album focuses on Illinois and includes some things from Sufjans past as well. The artwork for the album originally included Superman but was eventually replaced or, on some albums, flat-out removed.

And what about the pressing quality? i need a feedback : )
Malanim
funny that this issue is not like 100 € already - its has the superman also - you can remove the balloon if you want :)
Khiceog
So the original pressing was 5,000... but how many actually made it out without the stickers as opposed to with?
Tto
None. I had mine on pre-order and it came with the sticker on. I took it off because I had to see the real cover.
