I hope it's good, too. There's too much talent there for another crap album.

There are a few tracks on Around the Sun / Reveal to make a good EP.

Reveal, if nothing else, has the great "The Lifting".

the bitching will continue how rem have "lost it", and are too far up their own asses these days.

rem's latest album was fantastic, and yet it got shit on by nearly everyone.
Yeah, it seems that these days, unless you're Radiohead or White Stripes, it is a sin for a famous and immensely talented band, like REM, to release an album that doesn't have the indie-fundamentalists swooning all over it.

Personally, I'd actually take ATS and Reveal over AFTP. The albums have more cohesion if you ask my ear, and they don't feature considerably overplayed and overhyped longwinded songs like Drive, Nightswimming and Man On The Moon.

I'm not an indie fundamentalist.

I've been an REM fan as long as I've been a U2 fan. I love the band immensely, and still listen to them a lot. And, hey, you know what? I didn't like their last 2 albums. Simple as that. Just. Did. Not. Like them. I'll still buy the new one, and hope that it's good.

Why are you always wrong?

Well the media monkeys and the funky junkies will invite you to their plastic pantomine.

Throw their invites away!

I didn't even know what indie music was when I first hated Reveal.

I like bits and pieces of both Reveal and Around The Sun. Okay albums, just not up to the R.E.M. standard.

The Lifting, Electron Blue, Boy In The Well, Ascent Of Man are all pretty good imo.

As for the new album, unless the songs get fucked over in production, I think it is going to be gooooood. I hope they keep some of the 'live' feel to the songs that was captured in Dublin.

It sounds like REM didn't even quite like the last few albums all that much.

I've been a die hard, but admit to not even buying the last two. But I am getting excited about this one...
