Boomkat Product Review:
More goodness from one of the most gifted singer-songwriters of the generation, here displaying his excellent debut from 1999 "A Sun Came". The album here has been skillfully re-mastered, with two previously unreleased tracks and new art by Stephen Halker. Recorded on 4-track while still in college, A Sun Came first demonstrated Sufjan's eclectic instrumentalism - he plays over a dozen instruments here -- noted production skills, and heartfelt songwriting. Though little known until listeners and reviewers discovered Michigan last year, A Sun Came foreshadows Sufjan's later work, and stands on it's own as an expression of his unique talents. A Brilliant debut, thankfully available once again.
