That's as close as I can get. I can hear the opening bass notes in my head though. So I got that goin' for me.

Sterogum ranks R.E.M. albums

R.E.M. Albums From Worst To Best R.E.M. - Around The Sun – Stereogum

Up should be higher

The AV Club had a good series about REM over the past year as well. The comment section was fun, too.

I'm surprised New Adventures in Hi Fi was ranked so high. I think I'm going to give that album another spin.

It's in my top 5 REM albums.

I've never properly warmed to it. Lose four tracks and I'm on board.

Automatic and Murmur were too low on that list. I can't understand people who prefer Reckoning, Murmur's less mysterious, less consistent younger brother.

Didn't like the list, didn't like the commentary, but great band though.

I may have to give New Adventures a spin in the near future too. I honestly prefer Dead Letter Office more.

Shiny Happy People: worst song in the catalog?

Cloying and potentially embarrassing? Yes. Worst song? Not even close.

Yeah, the list seemed to follow the script that almost all of those lists follow: praise the IRS albums and Automatic, chastise everything else. Every one of these looks almost identical.

The comments and descriptions (and omitions) show some lack of knowledge about some of the albums.
The list seems to have been made by some kind of nostalgic by the early-IRS-times R.E.M. (plus, the hipster-valued New Adventures In Hi-Fi).

Speaking of the early albums, how do the recent deluxe reissues of those sound? Because the masters I have from the early 90s sound atrocious.

I only picked the Murmur set, primarily for the concert disc. I don't remember there being a drastic difference in the master quality of the actual album.

I didn't mind the list. It all comes down to personal preference in the end, that was one person's opinion.

Ditto for Reckoning and Fables. I never compared simultaneously, but I couldn't hear much difference.
