I love when they get to the space station and they appear to be talking to William Shatner on some kind of video screen, when it's actually a window and he just opens the door and walks out.

Underrated sequel.

And better than Around the Sun.

I think Imitation Of Life was Stipe's answer to Beautiful Day, a song which he loves and wishes he had written! And I think Imitation is a fine song. The bridge/middle8 is gorgeous!

By the way, this just struck me...

charades, pop skill, water hyacinth, named by a poet.
imitation of life, like a koi in a frozen pond
like a goldfish in a bowl, I dont want to hear you cry
thats sugarcane...

...and coffee cup
Copper, steel and cattle
An annotated history
the forest for the fire
Where we open up the floodgates
Freedom reigns supreme
Fire on the hemisphere below

Imitation of Life was what got me half interested in REM, and had a great film clip as well!

Of course, I imagine you could say the same thing about The Sidewinder Sleeps Tonight, but at least there's not a bunch of awful crap around it.

REM does have a MySpace, but only old songs there. I hope they self-leak the record early.

Me too. Because when I heard Around the Sun on their MySpace page, I was able to avoid the mistake of actually paying for that shit.

'Accelerate' immediately becomes my most highly anticipated release of 2008.

Gimme a handful of gorgeous R.E.M. melodies with Stipe's poetry sprinkled on top and I will be happy. I also think the new and more aggressive style will be a good change after 'Around the Sun'

Anyway, these guys could have retired 12 years ago and never stepped foot into another studio again and they would be one of the most kick-assingly cool and creative musical groups ever.

Bring on the new tunes...

That's hideous and looks like a rejected Beastie Boys album cover.
