They are saying on murmurs.com that there may be no tour to support the album, and someone close to the band that has heard the new album describes it as "a cross between Accelerate and Reveal"

Hmmm....

i thought Accelerate was ok. i liked a number of the songs but there was nothing redeeming about the album and i'll never listen to it again.

i hope it doesn't suck. i'll buy it. i'm in the "reveal sucked" camp (i know it's a pretty popular place to be, but i hear the "monster sucked" camp is pretty well-established too and i actually liked that record), and while i had a blast finally getting to see them live on tour for around the sun, overall there weren't a whole lot of songs i found to be truly awesome on that one. it was ok, but didn't blow me away. i don't expect to be blown away by anything they put out anymore. i just hope it doesn't suck.

The thing I appreciated the most about Accelerate was the vocal melodies on most of the tracks, and a return to their harmonizing, the creativity of which was missing from their previous three releases. No, it is not a classic alongside their best work, but I do hope it was a stepping stone to this new record.

That cross is kind what I was hoping for, though I do hope there is something new about this album as well.

But no tour? How is that like R.E.M. Not ok.

I can't remember what single song from Accelerate sounds like, but I remember thinking it was decent for what it was. I'm also a member of the "don't care much for Reveal club", so hearing this is a cross between the two doesn't thrill me. I'll likely buy it regardless.

As an FYI, there are most definitely numerous past general REM discussion threads. All past Bang and Clatter threads seem to have been locked and moved to the archive at some point though, they can be reopened with a mods help. Regardless, the Random thread is a stupid as shit place to discuss a new album release for a huge band, so why anyone would complain that a new thread was created to discuss it makes no sense to me.

Well, they didn't tour Automatic For The People.

The new one better be at least as good, or the lack of tour will be impossible to justify.

Or Out of Time for that matter.

I liked Accelerate, especially since I consider Living Well is the Best Revenge the best rocker since the early days, and I would like to be pleasantly surprised by this.

Trying to remember.....didn't they put Out of Time, Automatic and Monster out in like 3 successive years, then toured all three? Whatever tour that was, I know I was there for a show at MSG but I might be fuzzy on the details.

The Monster tour was a pretty huge tour I think, yeah.

I also think it was the tour that Bill had the brain aneurysm?

I don't fucking know. And don't feel like going to Wiki for some reason. I'm going to go eat some pizza.

Monster has become sadly underrated; there seemed to be a lot of grumbling when it came out because it wasn't as lush or emotional as Automatic. I think it's easily their most fun album (but still has moving tracks like Let Me In and Strange Currencies), and I personally prefer it to Reckoning, Fables, Green, and Out of Time, and of course those two unforgivable releases from the 00's.

They didn't tour for Out of Time or Hi-Fi, either.
