    If he plays this whole album at Coachella like he did on tour last year I'm going to be pretty bummed and skip his set.

    This is the set (other than emperor X) I've thought about more any any other live set I've seen since Kanye

    The show was amazing, but selfishly I want more of a mix from adz and illinoise

    I don't listen to this too much because it's such an emotionally exhausting record, but fuck if it wasn't one of the best things released last year

    Yeah this is a record that I don't listen to much for whatever reason, I guess it's just not within my regular listening habits, but it's also such an incredible record whenever I put it on.

    I can always be better, so I'll always try. Prestigious

    Read part of Stereogum's Top 10 Sufjan Songs and turned the first track of Carrie & Lowell on again. Big mistake... I'm pretty much crying at work now.

    This album is definitely at the top of my list for hard-hitting records. I discovered it shortly before my brother died and it broke me. I was afraid to listen to it for a while after because of what it's written about and because I knew what it did to me the first time I heard it. When I finally listened to it again I cried through the whole thing. I don't listen to it often, but it's one I will hold close to me forever.

    this was my favorite album of 2015 - incredible

    it was so cool getting him to go back to a more restrained and intimate sound after AoA's maximalism, and being amazing at both sounds

    I'm really curious about where he will go next, he's def one of the most special artists of our times, no doubt

    I'm very excited to hear that. I've heard nothing but amazing things about the way he reworked the tracks on that tour.

    That's awesome, the live versions of the C+L songs from that tour were astonishing

    I am SO bummed I missed that tour. I got into the record like, two months too late.

    Hollly shit, holy shitttttt THIS HAS THE 20 MINUTE VERSION OF BLUE BUCKET OF GOLD

    ok I have to calm down

    also, the Gallant collab of Hotline Bling is on this.

    also, it's 16 tracks. It's most definitely the entire set from the tour

    I'll listen either tomorrow night or Saturday night. It's too late for me to start it right now. I'm very excited, though. C&l is in my top three albums of all-time.
