so do I- I was doing the back-packer thing in Australia when it came out. I played that album endlessly- especially Let Me In. I also remember seeing them at Sydney Entertainment Centre (?)- they'd only sold the lower tier- and the locals sat down through the show- so a whole load of us went up a few rows and started dancing in the aisles- brilliant night

as for Hi-FI- it's the last great album they made (although a few tracks too long)- Accelerate came close- other than that the others were a bit meh

I realise now I have been somewhat underrating Document. King of Birds/Oddfellows Local 151 is such a fantastic way to end the album. Lifes Rich Pageant would be a perfect album if it had a powerful ending like that.

I consider Swan Swan H the last song, with Superman as a bonus track. And the former is a magnificent track that IMO is even better than those two Document songs you mentioned.

From the REM FB page.

FOX NEWS AND R.E.M.'S LOSING MY RELIGION

R.E.M.'s "Losing My Religion" was used in the Fox News coverage of the Democratic National Convention last night. R.E.M. today, through its music publisher, Warner-Tamerlane Music, demanded that Fox News cease and desist from continuing its unlicensed and unauthorized use of the song. Michael Stipe said, "We have little or no respect for their puff adder brand of reportage. Our music does not belong there."

At least that's not as bad as that other "Michael Stipe's ....." website.

Pretty good live set with that edition:

1. Finest Worksong (4.20)
2. These Days (3.36)
3. Lightnin’ Hopkins (3.43)
4. Welcome To The Occupation (2.52)
5. Driver 8 (4.15)
6. Feeling Gravitys Pull (5.00)
7. I Believe (4.28)
8. The One I Love (4.38)
9. Exhuming McCarthy (3.23)
10. Wolves, Lower (4.23)
11. Fall On Me (3.05)
12. Just A Touch (3.12)
13. Oddfellows Local 151 (5.34)
14. Little America (2.50)
15. Its the End Of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine) (4.01)
16. Begin The Begin (4.32)
17. Disturbance At The Heron House (3.42)
18. Moral Kiosk (3.02)
19. Life And How To Live It (4.59)
20. So. Central Rain (5.35)


Not crazy about Little America, Just A Touch and Lightnin' Hopkins taking spots away from like, anything else on their respective albums, but can't complain with I Believe, Begin The Begin, and These Days getting represented. Sad that Reckoning isn't highlighted better. But Fables gets some nice love.

The idiot who reviewed Document for Pitchfork had this to say:

"Still, despite the thematic throughline, Buck's heroics, and a predictably excellent remastering job on the reissue, Document still sounds like the band's least satisfying I.R.S. album..."


FUCKING MORON.

It "sounds" that way, but it definitely isn't.

I actually agree with that, but that seems like much more of a bad thing than it actually is.
