Accelerate - REM album - March 31 2008

New REM album just announced in the past couple of days. Supposedly features some much more up-tempo songs, hence the album title 'Accelerate'.

List of potential tracks:

"Accelerate"
"Hollow Man"
"Horse to Water"
"Houston"
"I'm Gonna DJ"
"Living Well Is the Best Revenge"
"Man Sized Wreath"
"Mr. Richards"
"Sing for the Submarine"
"Staring Down the Barrel of the Middle Distance"
"Supernatural Superserious"
"Until the Day Is Done"

Some very REM sounding song-titles there, let's hope they are cacking songs, featuring some more memorable typically Stipian lyrics.

It'll come out April 1st in the States. I can't wait either! Nice to see that "I'm Gonna DJ" finally gets its official release.

Now, as long as they tour behind it...

Well, he said potential tracks.

Me, I'd be surprised if I'm Gonna DJ makes it to the final pressing. It seems more like a fun goof they thought it was fun to play in live shows, but I don't think it's more than that.

Some people at Virgin Radio got to hear the album already and I'm Gonna DJ was among the songs, I like the song a lot, it really grew stronger as the last tour went on.

I think the songs they played in the Dublin sessions were a really strong mix of rock and acoustic, almost like New Adventures, which makes me happy

i dread the response of this album almost as much as i look forward to it.

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.

hmmm

this post reads much of what a modern day u2 fan would have to say over at everything you know is wrong.

I guess I'll have to reserve final judgement until I hear the album version. The live versions I heard were fun, but not necessarily something I'd want on a new REM album. Oh well.

You have to realize that you're in the minority on Around the Sun, and to a lesser extent, Reveal. I think the hardcore R.E.M. fans are more disappointed in the last two albums than the hardcore U2 fans are with those respective works. The difference is that U2 actually sounds like they still give a shit, regardless of how successful you think the results are.

I wish R.E.M. would get up their own asses. What they've done since the beginning of the decade just sounds uninspired and fails to grab you on a gut level. The Dublin shows are promising, but so was their tour around In Time, and look what happened after that. Hopefully they preserved the energy for the album, and the title isn't misleading.
