Sufjan Stevens: Songs for Christmas Volume 8: Astral Inter Planet Space Captain Christmas Infinity Voyage

Release Date: 12/18/08
Genre: Folk-Electronic Christmas

Hurry, new Sufjan! Sorry if the format of the title is incorrect.

Review: 36 minutes is a pretty good length. 1 song is less than a minute, so get rid of that. Then we got 6 really nice songs. Some are normal, like the intimate "Christmas in the Room." While others relay on that whole echoness. But I love it. That whole wall of sound just rocking's awesome. The last song feels a bit draggy, but nearly all the songs are great quality in music. No lazy man. Sufjan's version of "Angles We Have Heard On High" and "Joy to the World" should be staples in Christmas mix CDs.

Summary: Good stuff.

Key Tracks: Angles We Have Heard On High, Christmas in the Room, Joy to the World
Rating: 7/10
