God, I love (almost all of) New Adventures.

Monster has not aged well for me at all. I think the strongest song on it is Let Me In.

Drive is amazing. THOSE STRINGS! Agreed with Axver on Everybody Hurts. Can't remember the last time I actually listened to that song.

Most of Document is great, but I can't stand Oddfellows or Lightnin' Hopkins. Fireplace is by no means great, but I'm such a sucker for songs in waltz time.

Turn You Inside Out off Green and Finest Worksong off Document are basically the same song, which always makes me laugh when I think about it. But both are great. I think Stipe even dances exactly the same way during both songs on Tourfilm. Which I should watch again, now that I mention it.

REM.

If I ever have to make another user name, it'll have to be RoseofHay.

I just remembered that Cuyahoga is probably my real favourite REM song. Nearly. At the very least it is emblematic of the kind of music they were making at that point.

I still think Kohoutek is really underrated.

I also think the dual lead vocal on Harborcoat is a thing of beauty.

Until sometime after I joined here I had never heard Murmur, Reckoning, Fables or Pageant other than what was on Eponymous...even though I considered myself a pretty big R.E.M. fan. This was before Spotify or torrents and I figured Eponymous covered me for those first IRS albums.

I remember ranking the albums on here like ten years ago and putting Murmur, Reckoning and Fables near the bottom, just because I wasn't familiar with them...I remember it pissed off Laz that I ranked them so low. haha

Anyway, I finally came to my senses and bought those albums...discovering songs like Harborcoat, These Days, Begin The Begin, Pilgrimage, Feeling Gravity's Pull, Life and How To Live It, Cuyahoga, Perfect Circle etc. for the first time. I couldn't believe I'd been missing all of those great tracks for all those years.

It also really hit me how expansive R.E.M.s discography is and now I pretty much love everything from Chronic Town through Up.

i have no idea how to get last.fm to tell me my top 10 songs from any particular band. it wouldn't be very accurate anyway, almost nothing i listen to music on is hooked up to last.fm any more.

A post-90s REM track I really love:

Imitation of Life

One of the few songs on Reveal that are worth listening to.

The Great Beyond is also .... well, great.
