Another unnecessary little bump of this thread by me, sorry.

But apparently Stipe came onstage at the Langerado gig wearing a bright green OBAMA t-shirt. This is one of the best things I've heard in the last few days and confirms my immense love and adoration of both J. Michael Stipe and Barack Obama.

Awesome setlist, too.

In my Top 5 R.E.M. songs, if not Top 3.

Lucky to have seen this live.

Wait, I thought you LIKED Around the Sun?

I don't think Around the Sun is nearly as bad as you do, and on good days, I think it's a pleasant album.

However ...

I have no desire to hear the songs live again. I heard them live in concert, and liked them well enough, but I'm ready to move on to either revisit some oldies, and hear the new stuff.

"Pleasant" is not exactly what I'm looking for in an R.E.M. album. It's certainly not a superlative. My grandparents were "pleasant". I don't think I'd want to hear them play music for an hour either.

Hee!

"Pleasant" was probably far too mild a word. I'll just go with "I don't think it's all that bad, other than a few songs I really can't stand."

I Wanted To Be Wrong popped up on my iPod this morning, and I realized how much I like that one. I also really like the title track and The Boy In The Well.

"I Wanted to Be Wrong" would have been a better title song. I would have said, Mission Accomplished, boys!

Wouldn't call Around The Sun more "pleasant" than Reveal. Around The Sun is more intrguing, some fascinating tunes and some fasinating lyrical content. Aftermath and Wanderlust are nicely upbeat and pleasant to the ear, but High Speed Train and Boy In The Well are anything but that.

Final Straw is REM's worst song though.
