I can't believe there was no REM thread. They were the first band I really got into when I was about 14. In fact, I learned to play guitar strumming along to the Out Of Time album.

Unfortunately, I've been fairly disappointed with their recent output. I'm not sure they can ever quite reach the level they were at in the early 90s or the consistency they had over the first 15 years.

My favourite albums are the ones from the 80s like Life's Rich Pageant and Murmur.

the new one is out tomorrow.

I heard a clip of one of the new songs on YouTube. It was okay.

Here it is.

I haven't listened to much R.E.M in years, but I have to say I'm really into their new album Collapse Into Now. Anyone else? The video for "Überlin" is rad as well, this song sort of reminds me of "Losing My Religion".

true that. i tried to listen to the newer stuff but wow their early 80s output just can't be beat. i gave Up a try and it just didn't click and everything else afterward just fell off my radar.

REM changed my life. Kohoutek off of Fables is my favorite song by them. just so perfectly melancholy and re-assuring. i love to listen to this in my bedroom, in the dark. this super ancient live version is much tighter, more staccato sounding than the album version which i prefer but the sound quality blows me away.






rad little vid of Krist Novoselic giving a shout out to REM (4:29):
