The back of Lifes Rich Pageant has an incorrect song order, if I'm not mistaken it's like that on both the vinyl and CD releases.

Remasters are great and all, but come on guys, get back on the road or in the studio!

Also, I love the deluxe treatment with rarities and all, but the IRS albums fit with their lo-fi original releases just fine as well. Its like the Ten rerelease some what, the new mix sounds great and all, but I fell in love with the grunge.

Buck and Mills have been working in the studio for awhile now: Pitchfork: Peter Buck Talks New R.E.M. Album

As much as I love lo-fi, it was nice to hear Murmur in all its glory, and to me, it sounded like they mostly restored it to how it sounded on vinyl, with some improvements.

I just realized that the incorrect Reckoning tracklisting printed on the back can be found inside the liner notes of the original. It's been a while since I've looked at them, so that didn't look familiar. But that's still kind of a dumb thing to put on the outside of the package, since reissues can sometimes be revisionist and it wouldn't be that odd to assume that they had actually changed the running order. I guess that means that the incorrect tracklisting on LRP will remain when that one comes out.

No problem. I'm curious to see what sorts of songs they follow up Accelerate with, since it was a fairly big departure from what they'd been doing recently. I'd love to see a new album in 2010. *fingers crossed*

It would be nice if Staring Down the Barrel of the Middle Distance is on the new album.

It would, that was a great song!


I'm not as attached to the live set that came along with Reckoning as I was with the one that came with Murmur. That Toronto concert from Murmur was just heavenly, showing off R.E.M. at their young, crazy best. This one is good, don't get me wrong, just not as hard-hitting as I would've liked to have seen.

Pitchfork: R.E.M. to Release Live Double Album

It's recordings from the Dublin rehearsals last year.

I missed that completely. Sounds like its early on in the process, but its starting and that's something. Buck's my new hero for saying he's never read a blog. Also, Johnny Marr should just get it over with and ditch fucking Modest Mouse, there's always room for awesome in R.E.M.

And apparently they only release live recordings from Dublin, as R.E.M. Live was also a show there.

Reckoning EP?

The reissue came out this week. Like Murmur, Pitchfork gave it a 10.

Yeah, more info is written about it than the double album in 1bl00d's link:


As far as self-explanatory titles go, it's tough to beat R.E.M.'s new one: Reckoning Songs From the Olympia. On July 7, the jangle-pop greats will release four songs from 1984's Reckoning recorded at live gigs at Dublin, Ireland's Olympia Theatre in July 2007.

The digital EP is tied into the release of two other 2009 R.E.M. projects: the recent 2CD reissue of Reckoning, which came out last week, and a forthcoming live album. R.E.M. Live at the Olympia, a double-disc set due out this fall, chronicles the band's summer 2007 "working rehearsals" in Dublin, during which the band tested out material for last year's Accelerate.

And, according to a recent Pitchfork interview with guitarist Peter Buck, the band are currently hard at work on their follow-up to Accelerate.


EP tracklist below:

Reckoning Songs From the Olympia:

01 Harborcoat
02 Letter Never Sent
03 Second Guessing
04 Pretty Persuasion
