So by "rarities," they seem to mean "complete b-sides." Still very cool of them to release all of it, though.

I'm pretty sure I have at least 80% of them in some format or another. I would probably buy it if it were on CD, but digital bonus tracks to albums I already own? Nope.

Or maybe I misunderstood the article I read. But I still don't know that I'd buy them digitally. I'll have to peruse the tracklist.

Okay, perusing it, it might be something I would buy.

But not for 80 fucking dollars! Sheesh.

http://www.amazon.com/Complete-Warne...r+e+m+rarities

And that's just the 1988-2011 version. The earlier tracks is $30 (and of course, contains far fewer tracks).

The WB rarities compilation is really just all the UK/Euro CD single B Sides from 1988-2011 on iTunes in one place for the first time.

And as ever with these things, it's not really that complete... and is missing quite a few songs; 40 Second Song, After Hours, most of the Live In Greensboro tracks, though those are on the Green Remaster so that might be why, a great LMR acoustic recording from Mountain Stage, some of the AFTP Instrumentals, Perfect Circle [Live], At My Most Beautiful [Live] plus Drive [Athens Greenpeace] and The Lifting [demo/original] are repeated....

Heard the end of Radio Song on the radio in the car earlier and it put me in the mood for an REM kick when I got home, listened to a bunch of stuff....

couldn't believe how long its been since I heard this:

R.E.M. - I Remember California - YouTube

So great.

The other two are up there for sure, but Life And How To Live It probably wouldn't crack my top 100 R.E.M. songs. It's good, but I guess that's just a testament to how fucking great this band was.

I've always loved Up and I don't really know why. I guess its just the album's vibe. Really easy listen.
