Pitchfork is part lies, part truth, and part garbage.

given that it's time, i'm going to regard their opinions with a grain of salt, but this did make me laugh:

Anyone read this interview yet?

Salon - Michael Stipe: Why R.E.M. Called It A Day

Michael says "Supernatural Superserious" is his favorite song and that the band's best albums are New Adventures and Collapse Into Now.

The other two new songs...

I like Hallelujah more out of these two.
They probably could have left these off and added a couple more tracks from Up, New Adventures, or Monster. (or Reckoning or Lifes Rich Pageant)

REM-A month of Saturdays - YouTube


R.E.M. - Hallelujah - YouTube

Yeah, I just listened to those for the first time a little bit earlier today.

I like the sentiment behind "A Month of Saturdays" but it is pretty slight and probably not worthy of this career spanning compilation. "Hallelujah" wasn't particularly memorable either, but I'll have to hear it again.

"We All Go Back..." is damn good, though.

I'm coming around to "We All Go Back..."

Also, I had a long car ride home yesterday, so I listened to "Collapse Into Now" in its entirety. It really was a solid album for them to go out on. A satisfying end for one of my all-time favorite bands.

I had $15 worth of credits on Amazon's mp3 store, so I just picked up We All Go Back To Where We Belong a few mins ago. First time hearing it, actually. Nice track.

Haven't listened to Collapse in months, I need to do that.

The three new songs don't match the other tracks in terms of quality, but that's not why they were included. They're just an incentive for fans (who already own all of R.E.M.'s previous material) to buy the album. (Hey, it worked -- I'm buying it.)

"Collapse Into Now" is really interesting to listen to now. The songs take on a whole new meaning in light of the breakup.

exactly, and the extra tracks on a best of are almost always throwaway from any band anyway. i just figured the only reason people got so uppity about it was because they know those are the last "new" rem songs they'll get without a reunion album sometime off in the future, and they wanted them not to suck so bad (note: that's not my opinion--that they suck something fierce. it seems to be plenty of other people's opinions. i've only heard "we all go back..." once and haven't even listened to the other two yet). they're going to hold them to a higher standard than they would ordinary extra best of tracks for that reason, too.

i could listen to them, but i'd rather just go listen to country feedback.

We All Go Back To Where We Belong is a great track. The two video's are also quite nice, though a bit awkward.

I've really been geeting into R.E.M. lately. I've still got 5 albums to go.

Stipe is on Jimmy Fallon tonight. His segment airs in just a few minutes here central time. I'll let you know if anything cool happens.

This is the longest break-up promo tour I've ever seen.

Stipe did his interview and ended up playing a game of Password with Martin Short, Kermit the Frog, and Miss Piggy. No joke.

Only on Fallon would that happen.
