Unpopular opinion:

This might be my favorite R.E.M. song. Incredible atmosphere that you can cut with a knife, and it delivers a catchy melody too. They do have better songs, but Suspicion is very special to me. Up is full of great moments like that.

Look out.

I've actually posted here before on occasion, but I rarely find music discussions on this forum that interest me.

R.E.M. have been one of my favorite groups for twenty years. However, I still say they're not diverse or sexy. That's not knocking them, it's just stating my opinion on their limitations. Yes, even our favorite groups have some.

i'm just trying to figure out how being sexy really matters here. diversity really isn't always all it's cracked up to be, sometimes, but at least that's arguable. sexy, though?

New Adventures in Hi-Fi is pretty damned diverse, and that's just one album.
They don't have the range of styles of Boner & Co. but that's a tough act to follow.

I never saw R.E.M. as a "sexy" band to begin with, however...

Ooooh. That was kinda sexy. I quite liked that. "Perfect Circle" also has just a hint of sexiness/romance in it, I think. I love that song.

I mostly remember people gushing like mad over the song "Nightswimming" in past years around here. With good reason-it's beautiful.

They're not diverse in that they're all white guys, but their career has certainly evolved so calling their music samey is unfair.

They're as diverse as most any rock band in my opinion. Sure, they actually make albums with "themes", and thus have consistent ideas and sounds on many of them, but the albums themselves are quite different from each other.

Never in my life have I cared if an artist's music is "sexy" or not.

Not diverse? That's crazy talk...

They've been able to swing from humor to real sentiment to politics probably better than any band I know.

They've dabbled in punk, country, electro, rock...

Great pop songs, interesting instrumentals, "experimental" pieces.

Are they sexy?

Well Michael often does show his nipples, does that count?

New R.E.M. albums can't quite inspire the bile and infighting of a new U2 release. Inferior yet again.

you know, i get what all the fuss about "country feedback" was better now than before. i've always avoided out of time because 1) i am so sick of losing my religion and 2) shiney happy people. i know there are good songs on it, but it's one of the last albums i go to when i feel like listening to REM.


maybe i don't hate ebow and the letter anymore? back to new adventures after this.
