Sidewinder the best part is when he fucks up the line and laughs near the end.

Well, here are some R.E.M. boxscores. Far from being comprehensive, but about a 1/3 of the shows they did on the Monster tour.

On a side note, what was the name of the CD store by Burger Supreme? Not Big Daddy's, before that. CD Warehouse? I used to go there like 2x a week, and I can't freaking remember the name of the store any more.
I'm pretty sure it was CD Warehouse. I used to go in there quite a bit around 97-98. There was also a used CD store in the strip mall by Shopko up the street, which is where I remember all those Monsters

That is to say that the abstraction is what draws me to the band. And I also despise Sidewinder, though I am not quite sure why.
I doubt many here consider Automatic their finest album, I was just saying it was better than Out of Time, and possibly their biggest album in terms of worldwide popularity. You are right about the IRS albums, and I think most here consider those albums to be their finest work.

They did play at a "Vote For Change Concert" in 2004, but that was a benefit/festival not an R.E.M. show.
REM headlined Langerado (Florida) in 2008, but again this was a festival.

They only played in SLC once in those 15 years (in 2004). REM didn't do many extensive US tours in the post-Berry years.

dr seuss!


i tried to make a top 10 list, but it sort of hurt my brain. instead, i made a top 10 and then a second 10 that i hated leaving off the first top 10. sidewinder was on the first list, though. i do enjoy that song quite a bit.

Yeah, that was the original Big Daddy's location (when they were actually a CD store, not a used clothing / dvd store...).

Listening to Up today, and while the album in general doesn't get discussed enough, I find it to be their bravest, most ambitious, and arguably most intimate album.

What I want to single out today though is Why Not Smile, which at this point might be my favorite on here. It couldn't really be from any other album (the closest being Reveal, and I shudder to think at how they would have ruined it on that album), and I find it quietly moving. I love the interplay between and contrast of the basic drum machine pitter-patter, the organ/keyboard part, and the guitar scribbling.

Rateyourmusic has it at #1 (closely followed by Murmur), and most critics would consider it at the very least to be their best 90s album. Plus, it's among their very best sellers. It would be difficult to make an argument for any other album as their consensus standout "best," as the 80s records largely cancel each other out.

Personally, I don't think Out of Time is in the same league. Far too much filler. It works for me when I'm in the right mood and the weather is warm and breezy, but I never return to it outside of that context. I'm not surprised that it sold well, but I'm always surprised to hear that people found genuine depth there.

I read that as "Rapeyourmusic" and was confused / disturbed briefly.
