You should, especially since it's you I have to thank for Okkervil River having two albums on my list, one in the upper parts of it.

#13 - R.E.M. - Automatic for the People



The last R.E.M. album of the list. Savor it.

Quote:
Am I the only one to whom all REM songs sound the same? It's the same damn scale used over and over, with different lyrics attached to it, accompanied by Stipe's annoying, schmaltzy close-to-tears whine.

"Everybody Hurts" is bad enough as a song (complete with a slight rip-off of a Simon&Garfunkel melody), but when they stuck that audio Dreck onto a pretentious MTV clip, they immortalized their own ineptness and stupidity. Everybody hurts, but nobody's ears quite suffer as much as mine when exposed to this gay wanna-be-indie garbage for thin students with delusions of intellectuality. The lyrics on AFTP are MORONIC. Wake up.

"Man On The Moon" is pretty much "Everybody Hurts" minus the Simon&Garfunkel bits and more "up-tempo", if that term can even be used for any REM track except the passable "Shiny Happy Morons" (and passable only because the B52 singer is involved in it, giving it some much-needed spunk.)

The only thing more annoying than Stipe's music and his lyrics is his self-righteousness, his holier-than-thou attitude, spiced up with predictably unbearable heavy doses of retarded political correctness. Playing it safe has always been the path for hypocrites, assholes and idiots.

I thought this band was the shit back when I was in my teens. I also liked Nirvana, The Doors, Husker Du and a whole bunch of other worthless kiddie crap. Horribly overrated, has not stood up to time very well at all.
Quote:
1st listen: Hey, this is really good.
2nd listen: Not as good as I first thought.
3rd listen: Well, it's not bad.
4th listen: It's off to the secondhand shop.

I HATE what they did to themselves.

Automatic is great but come on isn't that just a little too high?

Scumbo's taste rocks, even if anything before 1979 is dead to him.

Meh. Had this one on my list, but I'm still a bigger fan of early '80s R.E.M. Just couldn't leave it off since it has a few of my favorite R.E.M. songs on it.

Yes, in fact it is far too high.

Truthfully though, I do actually feel really bad I never finished my list up. I was excited to participate, and just had a slew of other things end up filling my free time. I have failed LeMeL for the last time.
oh you'll pay for this! don't think you wont pay!

REM, like U2, were pretty much only great in the eighties. AFTP should not be considered their defining album.

Automotherfuckingmatic For The Motherfucking People

R.E.M.'s greatest album. I've heard even God likes it.
