You adore me, you love me, you cherish me, Jesus Christ you can't live without me!


The characters sound weird in spanish but still this sequence bleeds love, sincerity, tenderness and all the good things.
The editing of the film is one of my favorites, Goddard inspired and indie as hell.
As Lovage say...

"I feel that you shouldn't get involved
Iin an intimate relationship
Until you are emotionally mature enough
To handle it totally
Able to cope with your feelings
And your sexuality
Without guilt, inhibition or phoniness
But with love, tenderness and honesty."

The Age of Adz.

The Age of Adz, the last studio album by Sufjan Stevens. 
An open LOVE letter to Sufjan's music by Marta Doldán Díaz.

Most of the reviews, if not all, I have read for this album, start talking about The Fifty States Project by Sufjan. People seem to be disappointed and even mad at him because he once said something that apparently is not going to be done. So what? Enjoy what we already have. I am sure most of those moaners would never listen to the fifty albums if they ever were released anyway.

We always expect musicians to create what we want to listen, what we think sounds better, what we believe is what should follow the previous work, when for me, we just have to listen, enjoy, love, hate and decide whether we like it or not, but not to reproach him for he did not make the album we expected.

Maybe The Age of Adz is not as acoustic, mellow, melodic as we wanted it to be but it is amazingly rhythmical, danceable and still very Sufjan. 

If you find it hard to start enjoying this gem, watch the video for "too much" first, fell in love with Sufjan and then play the album starting with "I Walked". You will wind up in bed totally absorbed by The Age of Adz's aura, WORD.

Too much video by Sufjan Stevens.
