Try sticking a tennis racket handle up your ass.

Then you'll definitely get that feeling.

I don't think it's filler. It's just not one of my favorites. The others I listed, I like those songs more. But I do like AMMB.

I'm going to stick by my guns on this one and say that, musically, I don't think it's anything special or delved into any area they hadn't already explored before many times, successfully. However, I will say that I do really like 'Daysleeper's lyrics.

R.E.M. - Drive (Video) - YouTube

Hey kids, rock and roll, nobody tells you where to go

Baby!

What if I ride, what if you walk?

What if you rock around the clock?

Tick

Tock

Tick

Tock



Its interesting in so many of their videos Bill Berry plays a guitar instead of drumming

I find a curious coincidence in the occurance of, arguably, the last good (not great, good) REM and U2 albums within a twelve month period in 1997/98. Something in the air, in those cold blooded late nineties.

Shortly after that was when bands like Interpol, Franz ferdinand, took over :P

And then after that they were taken over by the Black Keys and the Arcade fire

And then Bloc Party and Kasabian

and then...

I don't know. This is some interesting revisionist history.

When have Kasabian ever taken over anything? They have niche popularity. You ask 100 casual music fans who Kasabian are and you'd get maybe 3 or 4 people that could name even one song.

None of those bands you've listed have become huge crossover acts. Franz Ferdinand is probably the closest, but people would recognize "Take Me Out" and that's about it. They haven't had a hit in years. And even when Arcade Fire won that Grammy, people still didn't know who they were.

No, the truer answer is that right then is when Radiohead surfaced.

In this picture Franz Ferdinand are like the uncle who plays the spoons at weddings.

Creep surfaced in 1993.

And then High and Dry and Just surfaced in 1995.

Ok. Thanks.

But at a pinch, they 'arrived' with OK Computer. It was possible to be mostly unaware of them before then, or to be aware (Creep) and write them off. I was, for example.

...and if you thought Poppycock was their last good (not great) album, what the fuck are you doing here?

I thought POP was a mess but an inspired mess. Nothing in the years since belongs in the same room as that.

I still haven't heard that "new song" they released / are releasing with the new "best of". Not sure if I want to, people seem to not be very positive about it.
