A TAV Essential Listening Album.

Carrie & Lowell is the seventh studio album by American musician Sufjan Stevens, originally released through Asthmatic Kitty in 2015. Unlike Stevens's previous studio album, the electronic The Age of Adz, Carrie & Lowell is sparsely instrumental and marks a return to the performer's indie folk roots. 

The album was released to high critical acclaim, with many critics calling it Stevens' best. Carrie & Lowell has been widely deemed one of the best albums of 2015. - Wiki

“Sufjan Stevens has always written personally, weaving his life story into larger narratives, but here his autobiography is front and center. Carrie & Lowell is a return to the stripped-back folk of Seven Swans, but with a decade's worth of refinement and exploration packed into it.” - Pitchfork

“Here, on his most emotionally draining album, he joins Nick Drake and Elliott Smith in the canon of artists who channel suicidal thoughts into impossibly pretty songs. Stevens strips his sound far enough to reveal his deepest anguish; neither the Disney-style orchestras of 2005's Illinois nor the synth-pop-as-craft-project of 2010's The Age of Adz peek through his acoustic fingerpicking and warm-milk voice. Even when Stevens goes all happy memories and gentle melodies on the title track and "Eugene," you'll be holding back tears.” - Rolling Stone
