New Adventures is in my top 5 REM albums.

Monster just hasn't aged well for me, although Let Me In still gives me chills.

Man, they're one of those white whales for me. Never saw them live, kills me that I missed out on so many chances. Have loved them for so freaking long.

Saw them twice on Monster - Milwaukee and Chicago

Saw them in 1999 touring for Up in Chicago (missed Radiohead as the opener because my friend's brother didn't want to get there for the opener. I didn't care at the time, but now I'm retroactively pissed)

Saw them in 2002 (?) at Bumbershoot in Seattle. Wilco opened ... although I missed most of them.

And then again after Around the Sun at a smaller venue. It was great, and I appreciated that album a lot more after seeing them.

I'll be first in line if they ever do a reunion tour.

Ha I definitely did buy it there! Me and my U2 buddy Danny drove over after school at OHS to pick it up. That was the only place to go for CD's. Crazy.

Very cool. I really hope we did randomly run into each other 20 years ago while we were both buying it, you're a good dude. Messaged a handful of friends tonight that I went to buy this album with, crazy to think it was so long ago. I'm glad you mentioned the release date. Weird how certain random memories in your life can stand out, going with friends to buy New Adventures in HiFi was one of them. Been listening to the band all night. Good stuff.

Too much alcohol also can turn me into a sentimental hippy pansy that likely overemphasizes music memories that mean nothing to anyone else, so I apologize if any of this is weird.

haha thanks mofo!

New Adventures definitely reminds me of that year in school. We listened to it a lot hanging out, going to high school football games, etc. In fact I even remember listening to it on the way to the Popmart show that year. Good memories.

Great album, maybe I was just a little too young and my musical appreciation was not yet fully developed.


I remember liking most of it from the beginning, although E-bow the Letter was not what I was expecting for a lead single and it probably was the track that took me the longest to appreciate.

At the time, living in Utah we thought it was cool that Salt Lake and the Salt Flats were mentioned in Departure haha.

I'm listening to it now. What an opener "How The West Was Won..." is. It sounds like nothing they had done up to that point. Love it.

ZOMG we were at the same show!!!!1!!!1!!

I saw both nights at the Rosemont Horizon; one night we had crazy good seats (like first 10-15 rows on the main floor), and the other night we wanted to go again bad so we bought some cheapos the day of. I remember writing the setlists down on yellow post-its and being surprised at all the unknown new material (Undertow was definitely one I remembered once I heard it on Hi-Fi, and was bummed Revolution wasn't on it).
