    It is just called Illinois.

    This is the incorrect tag, it's actually just called Illinois.

    I really can't see what's so special about Sufjan yet, it's not bad but sophorific and as emotionally evocative as a sponge... I might grow to like it though, as I usually do, but I can't see the warrant for the acclaim yet.

    No, its not, the real name is: Sufjan Stevens Invites You To: Come On Feel The Illinoise; But it is listed as Ilinois, so everyone can tag it Illinois instead :)

    @monsieurjelle It's not. Even on AK website it's just named "Illinois". "Come on feel the (...)e" could be the subtitle. I'm gonna change all my incorrect tags.

    this is probably one of the best albums in the world to listen to from start to finish while totally baked out of your mind.

    I'm fairly sure this is the right one actually. And there is a lot of random filler, but it is balanced out by pure genius.

    You guys are dumb. It's obviously not right. Hell, look at the tracks numbers. >:/ With that said, there is a shit ton of filler on this album.

    Wouldn't the title actually be, "Sufjan Stevens Invites You To Come On Feel The Illinoise" ? Similar to "The Besnard Lakes Are The Dark Horse" by The Besnard Lakes.

    i'd trust his record company: which, by the way, is an indepent company partly owned by sufjan himself, if i remember correctly.. i'm sure he's got it right.

    I say it's the real name of the album. it's on the cover (like you said) and it's also the name that shows up when you import the songs from the CD. However, in the iTunes store it's listed as just "Illinois"

    This is the real title of the album. It's written on the album cover, is it not?

    thought they took the superman off because of legal issues.
