100% agree with this. The typographical ‘flaws’ are intentional – not in the sense that the designer’s gone out of his way to ‘break’ it, rather there’s a purposeful (and topical) lack of attention to detail – and Sufjan taking this to task belies his own lack of ability to contextually understand an artwork.
In other words, it’s like listening to MBV’s Loveless and criticising its audio production values.

You talk about negative vibes this like you’re surprised… if you’d been on the money in the first place (or listened to your readership) you’d have shredded her to pieces long ago. Instead, Stereogum = Pitchfork.
I wish I hadn’t watched that.
Thanks, Captain Obvious.
Going to send this link to my mum.

I’m 90% sure this album will be rubbish.
Sort of abysmally generic production, no?
That’s the most pathetic excuse for a “riot” I’ve ever seen…
I like it.
Probably Jackie Lomax’s “Is This What You Want.”
I think it’s incoherent because you’re making blanket uneducated statements based on negative hype directed towards a globally critiqued world leader. I’m not saying you’re wrong; I’m simply saying it’s unintelligent.
I believe the phrase Kanye used was, “George Bush hates black people.”
