I like the font for the title, but that's about it.

R.E.M. have never really had great album covers. I'd guess 'Murmur' is their most kick ass cover. I like this one though, maybe just because I'm looking forward to the music so much.

I like that it's black and white because, if I'm not mistaken, the last black and white R.E.M. album cover was a little collection of songs known as 'Automatic for the Fucking People'

Could that be a good omen?

R.E.M. has always had some intereresting album covers, although the last few have sucked.

New Adventures was the last black and white cover.

There is something bizarre about them, for some reason they always seem to compliment the mood of the album, which is extraordinary because REM's album covers have always seemed very low key.

I love the cover for Reveal, with that seemingly pointless Big Red Dot, and the cover for Out Of Time and the mystical location on the cover of Murmur is cool too.

Hate to jump to conclusions, but I love some fun, uptempo R.E.M. and hope this is a sign of a good album.

Looks like this is the new version of Disguised from the Dublin rehearsals

Sounds decent.





Not terribly excited though. They're going to have to do a hell of a lot better than Around The Sun this time around though. And I actually kinda liked ATS.

I like what I hear with that one. Sounds like vintage REM to me, but not in the boring post-Billy Berry era way.

The song sounds decent, but that title is godawful, which reminds me that not only was the music of the last two albums bad, but Stipe has been slipping in the lyrics department.

Vocals don't sound as raw as the music either.

I'm Gonna DJ? That song is terrible IMHO. But some of the other songs I've heard are very good, so we'll see.

Yeah, I'm still not thrilled that song's on the album.
