Sufjan Stevens - Chicago (3 Alternate Versions)

I'm never really into Sufjan Stevens' music, don't know why, maybe that whole 'Christian child-man crafting beautiful, instrumentally rich acoustic folk songs' thing just doesn't appeal much to me. But he's indeed a respectable artist. I haven't listened much to his music, but 'Chicago' must be his best song yet by far. It's just an awesome nightdrive anthem, imagine turning it on at midnight and driving down the highway with it. It's 6 minutes long, and still worth every second. Anyway, I'm not gonna post the original. Here are the three alternate versions from his recent stopgap album 'The Avalanche'. It's amazing how he can alter a song that's already great and make it sound different yet still great. All the three versions I like, but the Mulitple Personality Disorder is the best one out of them. Check them out, really nice stuff.
