So in honor of old friends from my hometown as well as the warm spring weather this week's SOTW offering is a song called Chicago by Sufjan Stevens off his 2005 release Illinois. The album is the 2nd in what is ostensibly a 50-album project Sufjan claims (with varying degrees of seriousness) will consist of an album for each state.
It's an intersting idea but I doubt that anyone could a good enough grasp of the zietgiest of all 50 state to write an album about each. At leasst not a sincere, thoughtful album like Sufjan's first two albums. Still, I think he should keep it up as long as he's producing quality material like this.
I hope you enjoy it.
