What if the gap between the #4 and #5 album is only like 1 vote? Can't we have a contingency plan?

I think we should leave it like that... I mean, it has more votes, even if it's one, it's more.

Crap, I voted with only four selected.

Could a mod possibly add a vote to Automatic for me?

I know this is not the place, but has anyone heard the Lengthy Club version of Finest Worksong. I'm listening to it right now since a long time. It's great

Btw, finished LRP and FOTR, will listen to Document now. Proabably, by Monday I'll have finished and I'll be able to make the right choices. This is all for the fifth place actually, cause I'm pretty sure of the first four.

An extra two days of voting isn't going to matter much.

Also, side 2 of Fables is a bit of a slog. I really couldn't even hum the last four songs if I tried, and probably couldn't name any of them if you played them out of order. But that album just has some beautifully written and played songs--the first seven really knock my socks off.
I more or less agree with everything you just said. If I chose tomorrow, it could have been Up. I don't share your views on Monster, though. I mean, it's a good listen, and, REM are my 2nd favorite band after all, so lesser REM for me is still pretty good stuff....but, I don't know, for me, it has not held up all that well....I admire the effort greatly, though......and, it was fun having Automatic, Out of Time and Monster come out in consecutive years......

And, once more:

Half a World Away =

I'll consider it. We'll see what the situation is. If more than 10-15 people vote, it may not even be an issue.

I've loved R.E.M.'s "Automatic for the People" for about the past two years, but I finally decided to delve into their whole discography beginning in late November 2008. And I have to say that they have become a great addiction for me since then.

For their top five albums...

1. "Automatic for the People"
2. "Murmur"
3. "Lifes Rich Pageant"
4. "Document"
5. "Out of Time"

"New Adventures in Hi-Fi" is a close #6 for me as "E-Bow The Letter" is one of the finest and most uncharacteristically catchy songs I've ever heard... and "Accelerate" would be #7. "Living Well is The Best Revenge", "Supernatural Superserious", "Man-Sized Wreath", "Horse to Water", and "Hollow Man" are all awesome.

Play it by ear. But you can pretty much see where this is going if the trend holds. Right now you have a three-way tie for 7 votes, which are all four in front of the ones with 3.
