I think you misread my post. Nowhere did I say I was surprised. I even said "I get it". What I said was that I was a bit saddened by it. Not surprised.

Yeah, I agree, but he's still got one hell of a voice.

Yeah. Wishful thinking on my part that he would maybe do something new or original or more interesting than that. Oh well.

In reference to the debate on the last page or whatever, I don't know that it's any more sad to be discussing a 25 year old REM record for the nth time than it is to be doing the same for The Beatles or Bowie or any other artist of days gone by. It's not like those records aren't still there to be enjoyed, it's not like Stipe or his crew are ever going to reunite or approach what they did back then. So have at it, I guess. Though, admittedly, we should probably put a moratorium on saying how great Country Feedback is. Everyone gets it, and if they don't they probably haven't heard of REM.

Yeah, I don't mean to single out just the tired REM discussion. It all bugs me. And I've been vocal about it over the years. The constant ranking/rating of songs and albums that have been around forever. We've done it all before. Multiple times.

And the most important thing I want to say about it is that it's my fault as much as anybody's. This is what happens when I've spent SO much time on the same message board for so many years. Certain discussions are going to grow very tiresome. I get it. It's how things are going to go on a forum like this. It just bums me out. I wish I wasn't so addicted to clicking on this site. But here I am.

I'm all for discussion rather than mindless ranking (Name Your Top Ten Place Name U2 Songs!), no arguments there.

At this point, I have a history here and it's too late to start over. That's it. There is nothing worse than being a newbie on a message board. Ok, AIDS is probably worse.

Miami Sucks!



That's correct, it was in fact a trick question, U2 never wrote ten songs about places!
