I think Lance mentioned Up as one of his top R.E.M. albums. And yes, I was just listening to it the other, day definitely underrated, and thank you popmofo for mentioned Falls to Climb, I always feel alone in loving that song.

Also, bonus points for using "smitten" in the lyrics.

This thread made me think of one of my favorite bootlegs, which I haven't listened to in years.

This is crummy video, but I'm posting it anyway ...

YouTube - REM - Funtime @ Greenpeace Benefit @ 40 Watt Club - Athens, GA U.S. - 1992

"Fun! ... Dracula was pretty good but it wasn't quite as gory and violent as they said it would be!"

Sadly, the video cuts off just as they're starting the transition into Radio Free Europe as the closer.

"Belong" and "Daysleeper" are my pet favorite R.E.M. tunes.

R.E.M. have never had much in the way of style, sexiness, groove, or diversity, but damn they're good at what they do!

65980 has discovered the "other music" forum.

Look out.

i wish more people would just come out and say, "[insert band here] isn't u2, but they don't suck!" first and in bold typeface so i'd know to stop reading their posts before i got to the end.
