"A project that began as a commissioned work by the Muziekgebouw Eindhoven for composer Nico Muhly, Planetarium premiered in 2012 but was transformed by the arrival of this collaborative recording five years later. With Muhly, singer/lyricist Sufjan Stevens, the National guitarist Bryce Dessner, and drummer James McAlister receiving equal credit for the music, it also features a string quartet, seven trombonists, a keyboardist, and numerous instrument credits, including synths and programming, by the co-composers. Inspired by the Solar System, Planetarium's 17 tracks are named after celestial objects and related phenomena, with Stevens' often enigmatic lyrics focusing on the subjects of science and Greek and Roman mythology"

This isn’t a solo Sufjan outing, but his fingerprints are all over this one. It’s more Age of Adz than Carrie & Lowell, but it’s still a tremendous album that somehow manages to retain that Sufjan Steven’s intimacy™ while tackling the immensity of the solar system. Can you tell that I’m coming to this as a Sufjan fan?
