Favorite R.E.M. album(s)?

OK, let's try this again. The purpose of this poll is to decide how to distribute the songs per album in the upcoming R.E.M. survivor. To increase accuracy, I would like to ask that you pick your five favorites instead of just one.

My choices:

1. Automatic For The People
2. Murmur
3. Document
4. Lifes Rich Pageant
5. Up

I'm hearing Lifes Rich Pageant now... and I'm realizing that I had forgotten some stuff from this album, so before I choose I'll give all albums another listen so I can choose right.

Good show, MMP.

And I couldn't decide between Monster, Out of Time, and Up for the 5th spot, but I finally went with Monster. It never gets enough love, and I just kept thinking of killer tracks from that album. Kenneth, Tongue, Strange Currencies, Circus Envy, Let Me In.

Fuck what an underrated album, and it has real balls, not the plasticles found on Accelerate.

I like that Automatic went from easily destroying everything else in the last poll to only having two votes in this one.

It will finish in the top tier, I have no doubt.

Assuming we get more than 10 people to vote in this thing.

Fables and Reckoning are too mixed for me. Harborcoat is probably in my Top 3 R.E.M. songs, and there's some good rockers (Pretty Persuasion, Second Guessing) but the album just feels a little slight to me, especially after the grandeur of Murmur.

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.

Top 4 (3 songs)

That would be 28 songs in the final draw.

Well, there's Wendell Gee... I like that one. Funny you say that... I'm listening to Fables now and song #8 is about to start.
