    General CommentThis song is wild, the fact there are no lyrics makes it all the better. The piano is intense and entirely emotional. Top of my all time list

    General CommentThis is my favorite of Sufjan's instrumentals.
    The piano is pretty and calming. The background noises give a sort of nostalgic or remnicent feeling to it...

    General Commentit is similar to some i've heard too.
    Very similar to the song at the end of "The Truman Show" when Truman is sailing away on the boat. Mozart also did a sonata tat sounded similar.

    But this is of Sufjan's own mind.
