Prepare yourself for disappointment. A few great songs aside, easily their most shallow album. Even enjoyable songs like Pop Song 89, Get Up and Turn You Inside Out don't have much weight.

Also, Stand is one of the weakest "big" songs I've ever heard. Just trash.

Highlights: You Are the Everything, World Leader Pretend, Orange Crush.

laz will perpetuate a KNIFE CRIME against me for saying so, but I'm not much of a fan of Document. I prefer Green.

*runs away*

Are you kidding? I posted that at 7:10 - I've been running for 50 minutes. Nice try.

No Bill the Butcher/irritating Cameron Diaz character photo? I'm disappointed in you.

Document
Automatic...
Monster
New Adventures...

and Out of Time for me.

As you can see, I'm a huge fan of '90s R.E.M., possibly due to my unfamiliarity with stuff like Fables and Reckoning.

I'm loving the respect for New Adventures, to me its the highlight of their sonic adventures, features the beautiful/tough lyrics Stipe is best known for (somewhat in the vein of Automatic) and their best take on rocking, what Monster tried to hard to be was a rock album for the times, New Adventures was a true rock gem from R.E.M. Its my favorite, and I'm a huge fan of all their eras. My other favorites are probably Lifes Rich Pageant and Automatic. Not that I can really play favorites other than to say that R.E.M. is freaking amazing

Bill the Butcher + KNIFE CRIME = That, my friends, is the vast minority vote.
