Isn't that Man on the Moon? I know this since it makes a track I already don't like to new dimensions of unbearable.

As far as Andy Kaufman songs do, I prefer The Great Beyond by far and away.

And since we're at it, I also prefer Turn You Inside Out to Finest Worksong.

No love for I Remember California?
One of my favorites from the album.

All this talk has gotten me to go though their entire catalog for the first time in a while.

Automatic is still my favorite 90's album from them, but damn is Hi-Fi good too. Trim it by a couple of songs and you've got perfection.

And Murmur is still my #1.

Yes, it is. I confused it with another overplayed song (though I don't dislike MOTM as you do).

Now this is just fucking blasphemy. Finest Worksong is widely regarded as one of R.E.M.'s best tracks, period.

It's good. Sounds too similar to Oddfellows, the previous album's closer, so it's a bit redundant to me.

Meh. I'll take any other IRS album opener over that one.

All of those openers are among the best songs on their respective albums. But Turn You Inside Out?

Yeah, I've always dug Great Beyond as well. A great sequel to Man on the Moon which has always been one of my favorite REM songs.

I also dug All the Way to Reno and She Just Wants to Be from Reveal.

Also, I'd be perfectly happy never hearing Man On the Moon again. A great song that I am just so fucking tired of.

I was asking Laz, then noticed your post below his after I had made my post. Not ignoring your opinion. Especially since I agree with it.
