The vulnerable songwriting of ‘Carrie and Lowell’ and ‘Seven Swans’, blossoms into enormous ‘Age Of Adz’-esque passages - everything Sufjan’s made has led to this.

It also accompanies heartbreaking changes in his world, in which the usually private Stevens revealed that he was recovering from Guillian Barre syndrome, and his partner, Evans Richardson, had passed away in April. By dedicating ‘Javelin’ to Richardson, the album carries a weight unlike any previous record. Be prepared for this one. It’ll get you in the throat. In the stomach. In the heart

“One of the richest, most fully realized versions of the vision Sufjan has been chasing for decades.” - Stereogum

‘Javelin’ is a portrait of how close love and loss are, and the difficult and often unresolved emotions that come with it. “It’s a terrible thought, to have and to hold” Stevens sings on the title track in a moment of harsh self-reflection, which is later conflicted by album closer ‘There’s A World’, “There’s a world you’re livin’ in, no one else has your part, All God’s children in the wind”

Sufjan’s 20 years honing the ability to tie maximalist production to raw emotion through a catalogue full of experiments in new age, noise, opera and more, alongside his more recent willingness to bring his personal life into his songs, have all converged to allow him to process his profound loss in a truly unparalleled way
