I'd rather have a short album with good songs than a too-long album with a handful of mediocre songs thrown in to stretch it out.

Managed to get in a dig at U2 in that review. Big surprise.

But, from what it sounds like, it's going to be a 34 minute punch in the throat!


I'm thinking it should leak soon...

It's also the band's second album in a row to have a title song. None of the others before do.

Of course, but at this point in their careers and with 4 years since the last album, I would have expected more. I've found that short albums usually stick around for short times.

Unless of course you're a punk band.

bit of a disappointing review in that he seems to only have 3 ways to describe the songs
I do hope the songs won't be that much alike

good thing REM's music usually is beter than their reviews

Thanks for posting that!

the music doesn't sound desperate, forced, or designed for maximum commercial impact, as with U2's last two records.
Well, that's a relief!

Quote:
10. "Horse To Water"
Imagine "Little America" from Reckoning, but at triple speed and a hundred times more aggro. Imagine Mike Mills and Peter Buck with 'roid rage. Imagine Michael Stipe running after you, threatening to "pound the daylights out of you." You have just imagined this song.


Man, I can't wait more than a month for this to come out!

Supernatural Superserious doesn't sound all that great. And the title is odd.

There's a video for this up on Pitchfork, not sure if it's official or not.

God, Peter Buck looks fucking old. He could be in The Eagles with that mug. That's what years of excessive drinking will do to you, kids!

Amazing that U2 are roughly the same age and seem to look so much fresher. I know, they try really hard and have help from stylists, but still.

That song's petty lame. I'm not very optimistic about this new album. Is it too early to pronounce R.E.M. officially dead? Or should I at least wait for the album to leak to declare how shitty they've become?
