Dear Sufjan Stevens: Are you OK?

Sufjan Stevens will probably never not be in my top 5 favorite artists across all genres. I absolutely love each one of his albums in a different way, his persona, his story, his concerts (I saw him in April, and he was outstanding)... basically, he's just the greatest.
Which is what makes this newest 'release' all the more strange.
Warning: you should probably turn the volume down before you press play.
I don't really have any concept of what this is. Experimental? Sure...
It's almost reminiscent of "Age of Adz," but for the fact that the 2010 album actually was artistic and interesting and musical. As for this, I'm not sure it falls into any of these categories.
I love you anyway, Sufjan. But please never do this again. You're scaring me.

That actually could explain it... he's certainly welcome to a break after writing Carrie and Lowell. Not to mention performing it all the time. When I saw him a few months ago he played the whole album, start to finish, before even introducing himself or saying a single word. And I spoke to a friend who saw him on a different occasion and apparently he did the same thing. So he's really pouring it all out there
That's insane. I can totally see him doing that though @jeff4122. Getting lost in the music. I had a friend who got to interview him for an article and he totally stopped midway and needed a break to collect himself...poor guy is going through a lot
Hahaha what is this even? It scares me too. Though his new album is so emotional...maybe this is just his outlet to get those feelings out?

Lisa!!!
Holy crap, she is just great!!! Lisa is a Japanese music artist and by far the best I have heard. Her music is so catchy and it has a happy tune to it. So her genes are pop, rock, and anison. If you don't speak Japanese still listen to her she is amazing. I love this picture for some weird reason she reminds me oh Nonnon from Kill la Kill. Speaking of kill la kill that reminds me she did do songs for anime.๐Ÿ˜ƒ Soo...what shows did she do you ask?? Fate/Zero, Sword art Online, Day Break Illusion, Nisekoi, and The Irregular at Magic High school. In my opinion her best album is land space. Why, you ask? Because her songs in "Land space" are all catchy fun and the lyrics really move to the beats in the song!!!๐ŸŽต Man I want to see her concert so bad. Who will give me money to go see her!?!? Rising hope from the irregular at Magic high school. She did an amazing job on this music Video and the song. The way she sang it really brings out the meaning of the show๐Ÿ˜ Lisa being only 28 does a great job! I give a huge thumbs up to her!!๐Ÿ˜Š The only reason I found out about her is when my crazy friend told me who did the songs for sword art online. He said she was the best and I had to check her out. So I did and I came to loving her. Lxixsxa.com is her website it won't let me get the link.๐Ÿ˜ข So any way that's it. She's awesome. If you guys like her then make sure to tell me in the comments or fell free to message me. I'll defiantly be making some more on bands I listen to.(not just Japanese artist) But yeah if you ever go to or have been to one of Lisa's concerts make a card with a picture of the concert and be sure to tag me in it.๐Ÿ˜Š Alright Bye and keep on Rocking it!!!๐Ÿ˜ You get music reference? No, ok. I thought it was funny.๐Ÿ˜ข
