Problem with Dead Letter Office is that the best stuff on there are covers. You have four(!) Velvet Underground songs (Femme Fatale being one of the finest vocals committed to tape by Stipe), the leadoff Pylon cover Crazy, and of course King of the Road. Burning Down and Ages of You are alright, but I don't think we need to include them in the competition.

It is legitimate, though, to vote on a representative from Chronic Town. It's their first EP, all original material, and there's some great ones. A quick poll to choose the best to include in the main Survivor competition would be fair.

But what about Romance, The Great Beyond, Animal, Bad Day, etc. and b-sides? Fretless is a song as good any great song in their albums.

Yeah, I agree that Chronic Town should have a spot.

That's the thing about these Survivor games. If you do all albums and all releases for bands that have an extensive catalogue, it stops being fun after a while, especially for the poor person brave enough to organize it.

While I'd love to have a full survivor game for REM, I completely understand why there are wishes to try and narrow it down a bit.

And also, King of the Road is awesome because of the drunkenness, and Mike Mills yelling "Easy with the key! EEEEEEASY with the key!" when Stipe starts veering off into another key.



Thanks for the links, onebloodonelife.

Thanks, but I don't think we're allowed to post links in the forums anymore. PM only.

And I'm uploading the audio of Staring Down the Barrel. If anyone wants it, let me know.

Fretless really should have been on Out of Time, or saved for Automatic. It's SO good.

And The Great Beyond has got to be the most overrated R.E.M. song in history. That awkward chorus...my god, don't get me started.

We? Agreeing? Are you sure?

I like The Great Beyond a lot... it should've been on Up

Yeah, the way he rushes through all those syllables in the chorus is just top notch work.

Plus, the verses sound almost exactly like those in an earlier song. I forget which one because I've avoided listening to it since it came out. Bang and Blame or Bittersweet Me, maybe?

Thank god they didn't get an Oscar for that tripe, it would have been like Shuttlecock winning for The Cocks That Built America.

I'm not sure what specifically you think sounds rushed about the chorus. But whatever, you obviously just have crappy taste don't agree with me on this one.

Finest Worksong and Turn You Inside Out are the exact same song, by the way.
