The Age of Adz (pronounced /ɒdz/) is the sixth studio album by American singer/songwriter Sufjan Stevens, released on October 12, 2010 by Asthmatic Kitty. It was Stevens' first song-based full-length album in five years, since the release of Illinois in 2005. The album features a heavy use of electronics augmented by orchestration, and takes inspiration from the apocalyptic artwork of schizophrenic artist Royal Robertson.
Produced by Sufjan Stevens. Album The Age of Adz. Age of Adz Lyrics. Oh, oh, it rots Oh, oh, it rots Oh, oh, it rots. Well I have known you for just a little while But I feel I've known you, I feel I've seen you when the Earth was split in fives And in your words, I should let it out, I would see it die But I'm a watcher, I see it watch her, it's in your afterlife This is. the Age of Adz, eternal living.
The Age of Adz. Sufjan Stevens. The Age of Adz Tracklist. 1. Futile Devices Lyrics. The Age of Adz is the sixth album by Sufjan Stevens. Despite being polarizing to both fans and critics upon its release, it managed to receive critical acclaim and charted at on the Billboard Top 200, making it Stevens' highest charting album to date. Sufjan Stevens isn’t the kind of artist who repeats himself. The sturdy, State-focused Michigan gave way to the indie folk sensibilities of 2004’s Seven Swans. Illinois, the second in his aborted ‘50 States’ project, boasted new levels of ambitious orchestration and thematic songwriting
The resulting album is a sonically dense and emotionally destructive masterpiece that treats vulnerability as a guiding compass through the bog of anxiety. It is glitchy, messy, and I love every second of it. 'Futile Devices' is the most familiar song on the album and also one of the most lyrically dazzling.
Because on Age of Adz, Sufjan is doing what very few mainstream indie artists are doing right now: he’s pushing it. He’s seeing just how far this style, this skin that he’s never quite felt comfortable in, can be stretched. There’s something inherently beautiful in all this, watching Sufjan burn his past and arise from the ashes a fucking lunatic. Sufjan may compose Age of Adz through the lens of The Apocalypse, but the apocalypse is his own. From Vesuvius: Sufjan, follow the path, it leads to an article of imminent death. Sufjan, follow your heart, follow the flame, or fall on the floor.
The Age of Adz (pronounced odds) is Sufjan Stevens’ first full-length collection of original songs since 2005’s civic pop opus Illinois. This new album is probably his most unusual, first, for its lack of conceptual underpinnings, and second, for its preoccupation with Sufjan himself.

The final track "Impossible Soul" has its final section placed at the end of Side C due to space limitations on Side D, however the tracklist on the album cover is identical to the CD version.

With his sixth proper album, Sufjan Stevens does battle with what we've come to expect from a proper Sufjan Stevens album. This time, instead of painstakingly humanizing the locations, historical inhabitants, and trivia of a certain slab of America, he's more concerned with his own state of mind. Because The Age of Adz is a relatively dark affair, with the 35-year-old songwriter sometimes forgoing his child-like naïveté for something more oblique and adult. Considering the triumph of style that was Illinois (and the legions of lesser lights that subsequently turned it into some sort of over-the-top Disney on Ice parody), the change of perspective is welcomed. The record is book-ended by two quaint, characteristic acoustic passages that find Stevens reconnecting with a past love.
