Pop & Rock: Year in Review 2010
If somebody asked you in 2005 whether Sufjan Stevens could "get down," you'd have probably chuckled lightly, settled back into "John Wayne Gacy, Jr." and returned to waiting patiently for "Ahoy From Wisconsin!" Fast-forward half a decade: Stevens has given up the fifty states project; penned a multimedia ode to a highway and suffered minor trauma; written the splashy, synth-oriented groove of "Too Much"; wholeheartedly embraced his rhythmic side again on the thumping "Vesuvius"; composed a twenty-five minute epic that employs auto-tune; and constructed yet another classic Sufjan Stevens album that both confounds and yes, exceeds, fans' expectations.
