They got old and stopped making good music.

This is why you shouldn't over expose yourself to any new single! Haven't you learned anything from the past?

I got to meet Peter a year ago when he was playing with Robyn Hitchcock. He looked mighty damn fine to me!

You can do it now or later, as long as you realize it doesn't matter when you do it - I'm going to jump all over your ass for saying so.

Fair enough.

You people are so hyper critical, its a fun, catchy song for the first single, all signs point to this record being an energetic change of pace, yet you're ready to decry R.E.M. for eternity.

Considering how mediocre their last two albums have been, and the fact that this single offers absolutely nothing new to formula or even anything notably exciting within the existing formula, I think it's a safe bet to prepare for the worst.

I reluctantly agree.

I've heard the new song only once or twice and I wait with judgement until I have the album. I loved their last albums, despite of what people say, and I have tickets for their Berlin concert in July. I'm really excited about this and I'm not going to spoil the fun by over-analyzing one single song.
