Do you know this morning I raped the entirety of your music like Beirut, Okkervil River, Radiohead in the shower? It was fucking awesome.

If there's a better way to start the day, I've never heard of it.

As a tribute to the band, I am listening to every R.E.M. song from A to Z. About 200 songs. We will see how long it takes.

I checked Last FM to make sure you weren't just lying in a Bono-like fashion. Friggin' U2 fans.

Maoilb, the support acts account for 10% of the gross for each of those shows and you know it. Stop trying to spin bullshit. You know nothing about the concert industry.


Unbelievable.

Sorry. I shouldn't have. I'm just in absolute disbelief at his last post.

One nice thing about R.E.M. is that their releases were very consistent from 1983 to 1996 (or even later). So, I don't really care which album is "the best", I just enjoy the catalogue.

I personally quite like Out of Time, though I hear it as quite similar to Green. They're almost like the first and second discs of a double-album. By comparison, I think Automatic For The People has more of its own identity, being different from the one before it and the one after it.

Who could forget this?

LOL Well, the support act for the Monster tour back in 1995 was this relatively unknown band named Radiohead. They did have one minor hit called "Creep".

I remember back in the 1990s, the band Hootie and The Blowfish were hosting some show on VH1 and each member was asked to name their favorite album of all time. Two of them named Reckoning, one named Lifes Rich Pageant, and the other named Fables Of The Reconstruction. They then bitterly argued about it for the remainder of the show. I remember being surprised by their picks. They were huge R.E.M. fans.
