R.E.M. CD/DVD from Dublin Rehearsals

New R.E.M. doc in stores Oct. 27 - Entertainment News, Music News, Media - Variety

I read this article last night and got so excited, and didn't find anywhere to discuss it on here, so I went to grab the link to post it on here, and noticed a detail I hadn't seen before, part of it's theatrical release is the Brattle Theater in MA, I LOOOOOOVE that theater, and now I do even more.

Oh, cool! As much as I've cooled towards them, they're still on my "must buy" list.

I hadn't even heard of this, so thanks for posting it.

Yet another deluxe edition to buy this month!

I saw the world premiere of the DVD on September 29th, and it's absolutely gorgeous. It's done by Vincent Moon, who does Take-Away Shows for La Bloqotheque, so the style's a little jarring and difficult, but beautiful. And, the sound is freaking amazing, done by Jacknife Lee, and perfectly clear.

So it's a good concert then? In regards to the non-Accelerate songs because I have no interest in anything off that album

Well, it's not really a straight-up concert film either. It's shot completely out of chronological order, focusing on the Accelerate songs, but with quite a few others thrown in too, mostly from their IRS years. Honestly though, as much as I like their earlier material more, these performances are really great. Plus, the CD has 39 songs, which is much more than the DVD has, so there's bound to be more non-Accelerate stuff on that.

Wow 39 songs? IRS REM, yeah I think I can live with a little Accelerate being on the cds and dvd

Why the Accelerate hate? These performances were mostly to work on those tracks.

I just don't like it, it's as weak as Around the Sun to me

It was a relief to me to hear them return to some uptempo stuff, but the songs lack that special something to me. While I don't dislike the record, I'm still disappointed by it.

^^ This. Of course, there was nowhere to go but up after the geriatric snoozefests that preceded it.

And why the hell is West of the Fields on this thing? Possibly one of their weakest songs ever. Also, no Finest Worksong or Begin the Begin makes baby laz cry.

"West of the Fields" is worth it on this, if only for Stipe's little Storytellers moment about it and people trying to interpret his early lyrics.

"West of the Fields" sounded great on tour last year.

I agree Accelerate isn't an artistic masterpiece, but its stripped down and re-energized, and I look forward to see where they go next.
