Sufjan is most well known for his album Illinois, which hit #1 on the Billboard Top Heatseekers chart, and the track "Chicago". Carrie & Lowellis his most recent album, released in 2015. Upon release, the album was greeted by critics with open arms and high numbers. Pitchfork gave the album a 9.3 rating and Metacritic gave the album a 90. Many rate this album as Sufjan's best and has been included in the top 10 albums of 2015 at many different music publications. The album reflects on the tribulations of Sufjan's early life; the challenges he faced dealing his mother Carrie, who was diagnosed bipolar and schizophrenic, and suffered from drug addiction; including this stepfather Lowell. Carrie & Lowell is not just a collection of song on an album, it is an intertwined to form a window into Sufjan's thoughts and experiences. "Death With Dignity " is an honest expression of dealing with death, especially of a mother. The song is beautiful and will bring tears to your eyes. Overall this album is a beautiful homage to his mother and the memories shared. While it can be an emotional album, it is truly authentic and about life, rather than its trappings.
