If so, any opinions so far? Is it as good as Greetings From Michigan?

I like it better than Michigan. But the new The Gathering was calling my name softly.

Im hoping to stop by the good old record store today. I'm planning on buying this (sufjan stevens) or perhaps Tv on the Radio (which I have not heard... I am merely going by word of mouth) or one of the other million cd's I want...

Oh but it is!

Just as good that is. Im already at the point where I cant decide which is better, Seven Swans is easily if not more beautiful than Greetings from Michigan. Id pay 8-10$ just for the last two songs.

Sufjan Stevens- Seven Swans, Volta Mark approved and definitely recommended
:thumbsup:

with increased time, i'd say it's worth $12. that's saying a lot. i'm still saying greetings from michigan is better, but i'm a rabid fan of that album. time will tell..
