I thought it was a good year for music. I had one album that stood out, head and shoulders above the rest and that was Sufjan Steven's Carrie and Lowell.
I don't often get visibly emotional at live shows but I found myself in tears half way through seeing him perform this album live. I had been listening to it often and I had read, via a Hubski post by ButterflyEffect an amazing interview with Sufjan about the album and what it meant to him.
Then, I actually met the guy the night of his show and was able to thank him for his work over the years. His music has played a significant role in my life. It was pretty cool.
How about you? What was your favorite album of the year?
